The Compassion of Jesus and the Malice of the Pharisees - Sermon from last Sunday

Sermon from last Sunday -- the malice of the pharisees compared to the mercy of Jesus. But every time we sin mortally, we crucify him in our soul. Venial sin is like spitting in Jesus' face. The horror of sin. (22:30)

Sermon 4/5 St Vincent Ferrer

St Vincent worked well over 100,000 miracles, raised more than 30 dead to life, converted Europe. When he preached, people thought that the end of the world had come (and it nearly had).
It was a miracle when he didn't work a miracle!

Sermon 4/4 The Malice of the Pharisees

The more good Jesus did and the more miracles he worked, the more the pharisees rejected him. For he was obnoxious to them. We do the same when we sin.

Sunday Sermon, 3/30 - The loss of the sense of sin

The greatest sin of our age is the  loss of the sense of sin.  Nothing is more dangerous to salvation than the phrase "I'm a good Catholic! I don't care what that priest says about what Catholics have to do or believe, because I already know I'm a good Catholic!"  (21:22)
