Fr. James’s Homilies

Lust (More souls are lost because of it; and how to conquer it)

April 4, 2020

On her death bed, the Blessed Mother appeared to Saint Jacinta in 1920. Jacinta was dying of TB and pneumonia--in isolation. The Mother of God told this little 9 year old girl (who offered her suffering to save souls) that more souls go to hell (yes, it is real!) because of sins of the flesh (i.e. lust) that anything else. If this was true in 1920, imagine how much worse it is now, in 2020, with the Internet. Lust is powerful. But it CAN be defeated...if you go to God and Mary. Here's how...

Here is the solemn act of consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary I referenced in my homily:https://www.ewtn.com/catholicism/devotions/solemn-act-of-consecration-to-the-immaculate-heart-of-mary-12729

Finally, if you would be willing to donate to help the Basilica, we could really use the help! Click here: https://www.americasfirstcathedral.org/parish/
