New Home for Father Ryan's Sermons!

Friends, I am in the process of switching to a new means of posting sermons online - I have switched off Sound Cloud for a number of reasons, and the sermons are no longer up there. However, they are all still at archive.org (search "Father Ryan Erlenbush" and click on "Date Archived" for the latest) and can be accessed via the parish website [here] and my New Theological Movement blog by clicking on the "click [here]" link in each sermon post.
I will be trying to update the older posts to provide a playable embedded link from archive.org. It is my hope that I can set up my own website to host sermons and from which I will be able to establish a podcast to allow downloading of sermons onto smart phones more easily!
You can find all the sermons archived here: https://archive.org/details/@father_ryan

Sunday Sermon, January 21 --- Voting, Contraception, and the Pro Life Cause (Father Ryan Erlenbush, Corpus Christi Parish)

The conversion story of Bernard Nathanson, who had been the nations leading abortionist (over 75,000 abortions) and became one of the leaders of the Pro Life cause.  Catholics can promote the culture of life by voting pro life, by not using contraception, and by penance.

It is important to educate people on the link between contraception and abortion -- not only that the contraceptive mentality leads to abortion, but also that many forms of contraceptives actually cause abortions.   If you get in bed with Planned Parenthood, don't be surprised that you end up committing an abortion.

Sunday Sermon, January 14 -- On Purity and Pleasure, and Pornography (Father Ryan Erlenbush, Corpus Christi Parish)

Rules without a relationship leads to rebellion and resentment. Rather than preaching about impurity and un-chastity, we will focus rather on purity and the goodness of pleasure. We also comment on the grave danger which pornography poses in the modern day.
