The Only Prayer Written by the Blessed Virgin

The Only Prayer Written by the Blessed Virgin

August 16, 2019

Mary composed one prayer that we know of. St. Louis de Montfort said of this prayer that "is the greatest offering of praise that God ever received under the law of grace.” If you don't know what do say after you receive Holy Communion at Mass, this is the perfect prayer. It's what the Blessed Virgin said after SHE received the Eucharist!

This Virtue is Necessary for Eternal Life

This Virtue is Necessary for Eternal Life

August 4, 2019

As Jesus was literally walking to His death, he stopped the Apostles to explain the necessity of a specific virtue. No one can get to heaven without it. And those who have it now will experience peace and happiness on earth...even if everything else in the world is chaotic. 

Want to practice generosity? Would you support the radical work we are doing to bring Christ to Baltimore? I am not asking because it would be nice to get a little more help. I am asking because we NEED the help. I have 500 people at the Basilica! That's all! If you are willing to be part of the plan to make Baltimore a Christ-filled City, please click here for more details: https://www.americasfirstcathedral.org/tgb/

We ARE the 72 Jesus is Sending Out. Will you go?

We ARE the 72 Jesus is Sending Out. Will you go?

July 7, 2019

What would have happened if the 72 disciples whom Jesus asked to go into Ancient Palestine said, "No thanks, Jesus! We don't want to go. We won't support your mission!" Can you imagine? What will happen if WE don't go out today--into the streets of Baltimore? Can you imagine...??

Independence Day: “Covered” in God’s Blood

Independence Day: “Covered” in God’s Blood

July 4, 2019

Kipper is the Hebrew word for "covering." This is the root word from which comes Yom Kippur--the day of Mercy in the Jewish liturgical year. On that day, God covers his people with mercy. The entire nation is then freed from sin and liberated to worship God fully. This is where our true freedom and independence comes from. Happy 4th!

Jesus said “Behold this Heart which has so loved men” as He showed Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque His Sacred Heart. He says it to us every time we do this...

The King of Kings in Beggars Clothes (Corpus Christi)

The King of Kings in Beggars Clothes (Corpus Christi)

June 23, 2019

If God appeared to us in His glory, none of us would be able to approach Him. So the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords comes to us in complete humility--under the appearance of bread and wine. He does not want anyone to fear approaching Him. He desires to raise us up. The Eucharist is complete love. When we come to Mass, do we respond with complete love too? Here's how you can...

God the Father “Almighty” (What this actually means!)

God the Father “Almighty” (What this actually means!)

June 16, 2019

God the Father expresses His omnipotence/almightiness for us in three ways. Once you understand what these are, the Creed and Eucharistic Prayer make so much more sense...and the Mass becomes SO much more powerful.

Padre Pio: The Source of His Holiness

Padre Pio: The Source of His Holiness

June 14, 2019

Padre Pio had many supernatural gifts. He could bilocate, read hearts, heal and of course, he had the stigmata. Yet he isn't a saint because of any of those gifts. He is a saint because he went to Mass every day. And you have access to the same Mass...and the same source of holiness. St. Pio pray for us!
