Your Job is NOT a Mistake: God Has You Where He Wants You

“Sanctity, for the vast majority of people, implies sanctifying their work, sanctifying themselves in it, and sanctifying others through it.”

Bishops, Fraternal Correction and Excommunication

Bishops, Fraternal Correction and Excommunication

September 6, 2020

Today's Gospel is directed to the hierarchy of the Catholic Church--especially our Bishops (the descendants of the Apostles). To be a Bishop is the most difficult job in the world--bar none. It is also the most important. We need to pray for our Bishops.

August 30, 2020

If you want to truly be immersed in God, one thing is necessary. Without a great love of this one thing, authentic holiness isn't possible. But with this one thing, you will be holy.

Mary: the New Ark of the Covenant

Mary: the New Ark of the Covenant

August 15, 2020

One of Mary's titles is "Ark of the Covenant." Why is she called this and what does it have to do with the Assumption? The short answer is: EVERYTHING! (Oh yeah, and this is all based in scripture).

Systemic Change Won’t Happen Until we Have Adoration

Systemic Change Won’t Happen Until we Have Adoration

August 9, 2020

Until we can confess the divinity of Jesus...until we learn to worship Him as He deserves in the One Church He built...and until we allow ourselves the time we need-- in silence--to hear His voice, there will be no change in our city/country/world. Evangelization without adoration will not work. The Basilica is working on a plan to really evangelize. And it starts with adoration!

Militant Atheist Turned Priest

Militant Atheist Turned Priest

July 19, 2020

Why doesn't God "do away" with all evil right now? Well, He desires our hearts not our destruction. Evil only exists because God gives us freedom. We are all sinners. We all choose evil at times. Thank God He doesn't just wipe us out!

A lot of people will convert once we start up perpetual Adoration at the Basilica. Will you help? https://www.americasfirstcathedral.org/pa/
