In Part 2 Anthony continues on the general theme on the parallels of the holocaust and Abortion. We now see in society that there is an intolerance for the support of the pro-life view. Politicians and ordinary people shy away from expressing any positive view in defending the child in the womb should the mother not want it. Further the pro-life ad…
 
Anthony, comments on the parallels between the Holocaust of the 1930's and the current killing of children in the womb throughout the world by Abortion. He shows that the abortion industry is by its very nature equivalent to the holocaust, the context may be different but the aggregate act is the same but far more numerous. The systematic mass slau…
 
Marxists gradually realized they could dismantle Western, Christian, Civilization from within by destroying the father of the intact married family --- the “Patriarch”--- through “sex gone wild”. The key to rebuilding is for each father to take charge of his sons’ formation in the fullness of sexuality.…
 
Having presented to us the three eminent good works, fasting, alms giving and prayer, our Lord goes on to tell us the manner by which we should pray. Namely the things that we should pray for and the way in which we should make our pray. The first thing He says is do not babble like the pagans. How do pagans pray? Well pagans who basically are poly…
 
Four times our Lord calls Himself the bread from heaven. The forth time He said I am the living bread which has come down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live forever and the bread I shall give is My flesh for the life of the world. As long as He called Himself the bread, whilst it was difficult to accept nonetheless the Jews didn’t gr…
 
So far our Lord is speaking of His divinity; He’s now in the second part of His discourse going to speak about His humanity. In the beginning of St. John’s gospel we heard ‘…in the beginning was the word, the word was with God and the word was God…’, we read that ‘…the word was life and the word was the light of men, and that he enlightens all thos…
 
We recall that the miracle of the loaves occurred just before the feast of the Passover. That’s why there were so many people around because they were making their way up to Jerusalem to celebrate the Passover. So the only way to get there was by foot and so they were walking and they encountered our Lord who taught them at some length. He fed them…
 
There is a reference to St. Mark whose feast we celebrate today and St. Paul who associates him with his first missionary journey. We know very little about the lives of the apostles beyond what is related in the gospels and certainly the same for the Evangelists. What information we have, we depend upon the tradition to give us most of it. We know…
 
Our Lord, according to St. Johns Gospel had gone up to Jerusalem and there He cleansed the temple. This was the first cleansing of the temple, He cleansed it twice. That is He cast out the traders from the temple precinct on two occasions, once at the very beginning of His ministry and this is the one St. John records and at the end which the other…
 
We are obliged to believe that the Holy Scriptures written by the Holy Spirit are true. And even though they have been written by the Holy Spirit or perhaps especially because they have been written by the Holy Spirit they need someone to interpret them. Just as with great literature Shakespeare, Dante or even Caesar, they have written works but th…
 
Today there are many sceptics who doubt the resurrection of Blessed Lord. In fact there was a few years ago, when the bishop of Durham the Anglican denied the resurrection and even among Catholics Bishops there some have expressed doubt about the reality of the resurrection. Well they are not original because the Apostles doubted the resurrection o…
 
A crisis is a moment of decision, a time of testing. That the Church is currently in a state of crisis is clear for all to see. The daily unfolding scandals of clerical sexual immorality from priests to cardinals, the financial chicanery enveloping the Vatican Bank, the institutional cover-ups, the shrinking congregations, the open opposition betwe…
 
Our Lord worked His first miracle in Cana, Galilee that was the changing of water into wine. He works His last miracle in Galilee, the miraculous catch of fish. Of course there is a connection because in Cana, He was told they had no wine and here in the sea of Tiberius they have no fish. And so we learn that Christ is the only one who can provide …
 
Christ has truly risen as he said He would. St. Paul in the letter to the Colossians, tells us we should keep our eyes fixed on heaven where Christ is. Christ is our head, and one thing we know about the Head is that it has a body and in particular we speak about the mystical body of Christ, of which we are members. We are the branches that have be…
 
In the sequence there’s that little verse ‘death and life fight they contended a combat strangely ended. Life itself is slain yet lives to reign.’ Always when we celebrate the sacred mysteries we need to recall all these realities. That’s what they are, they maybe mysterious but none the less they are realities, constantly to mind. In this way our …
 
The first sorrowful mystery describes the agony of our Lord in the garden and it’s interesting that the three of the evangelists speak about the agony of our Lord. First of all he takes a journey down to the garden which St. John describes. Arriving at the garden He leaves eight of the apostles at the entrance to the garden He takes the other three…
 
Rediscovering our Eucharistic faith is key to evangelisation. The Sacred Host is God present among us, without Whom we can do nothing, let alone evangelise. The deeper our Eucharistic faith, the more fruitful our witness to the world. The Church grows from the Eucharistic Sacrifice, Presence and Communion. Committed Eucharistic adorers will foster …
 
Our Lord has taken the disciples to Caesarea Philippi and He asked them the question, who do people say the son of man is? The Apostles gave varying answers; some say John the Baptist, others Elijah, Jeremiah, one of the Prophets. But you, He said, who do you say I am? You who have been with me these past few years, you who have seen the miracles, …
 
“The gates of hell shall not prevail” against the church, not even the hell of sexual abuse. How did we get there? How do we get out? By inspiration, conversion and purification. The beautiful plan of God for man and woman, sex, marriage and family is the answer to the longing in every human heart.על ידי Fr Linus Clovis
 
As we celebrate Mass we begin by thinking what we are about to do namely to celebrate the sacred mysteries. In the opening prayer this morning we prayed that, may your people exalt forever o God in renewed youthfulness of spirit. So that rejoicing now in the restored glory of our adoption we look forward in confident hope to the rejoicing of the da…
 
Our Blessed Lord had fed the multitude. They saw the miracle of the five loaves with 5000 men not counting women and children. There were scraps left over. Immediately they said this is the Prophet and they wanted to come and make Him king. To which the Lord's response was to tell the disciples to go across the lake and He Himself disappeared into …
 
Our Lord speaking to Nicodemus said that as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness so the Son of man must be lifted up. Then immediately Nicodemus questioned the purpose of the Crucifixion. Our Lord says God loved the world so much that He gave his only Son so that anyone who believes in Him may have eternal life... For more homilies from Fr…
 
The people that asked our Lord, what must we do if we are to do the works of God. Jesus answered this is working for God, you must believe in the one He has sent. He didn’t say you must believe the One He has sent but you must believe in the One He has sent and there is a great difference between the two… For more homilies from Fr. Linus Clovis ple…
 
Our Lord speaking to the crowds said I am the Bread of Life. If we go back to the Greek, we notice that the word Our Lord used life is not as we in English understand. In Greek there are two words for life that have come into the English Language. One is biology… For more homilies from Fr. Linus Clovis please visit www.adjesum.org/homilies…
 
Signs miracles, Saint Paul tells us are for unbelievers. And they are given to unbelievers for a warning because indeed an unbeliever might see a sign and still not repent. There are many examples of that, in history as well as of course, in the scriptures. The wise men came from the east to Jerusalem because they had seen a sign and they believed …
 
We live in an age of deception. Which tells us nothing other, of course, than that which St. Maximilian told us one hundred years ago. He said that modern times increasingly would be dominated by Satan. His influence would be so great, that not even the wisest or the strongest man would be able to resist him. Those who will be able to escape the de…
 
In the opening chapter of Genesis at the creation we hear how the Lord God created all things; time, space, light and darkness, the globes of Heaven, the Earth, how He created the creatures. We are told at each point, each day of the creation; God looked at it and saw that it was good. In a certain sense it is a proclamation of who God is, because …
 
St. Thomas Aquinas who is known for his wisdom but above all for his clarity of thought, says “what is first thought of is the last thing that is executed”. If you want to do something, you have to make preparations for it. For example, Our Lord speaking in the Gospels tells us, “Which one of you wanting to build a tower would not first sit down, c…
 
Our Blessed Lord speaks to us, Saint Matthew relates that He spoke to the crowds and to His disciples and although He did this some two thousand years ago in the flesh, none the less He speaks to us today, the crowds and His disciples in the spirit and certainly in the authentic teaching of His Church. He says the scribes and Pharisees sit on Moses…
 
When our Blessed Lady came to Fatima a hundred years ago, in June of that year, as she was about to depart, she showed the children her Immaculate Heart, which they described, she was holding in her hand and it was surrounded by thorns. We think of what that means, surrounded by thorns. Where do these thorns come from? We should not be surprised to…
 
We are now in the month of November, and the Churches liturgical year is winding down to its end and soon it will be a new liturgical year. So the Church, as we come to the end of the year reminds us of the four last things, namely Death, Judgment which follows it, then Hell and Heaven. It’s important that we reflect on these things at least once a…
 
Our blessed Lord speak to us, His little flock. He tells us, we ought not to be afraid. For the simple reason that our Father has given us a Kingdom. In another place He tells us that, towards the end of His life when He speaks the parable of the Great Judgement, how the sheep and goats will be separated, He says take as your possession the Kingdom…
 
This evening I wanted to explore the Eucharist as a sacrament and a sacrifice. We speak of the Mass as the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. There is a connection between the Eucharist and the Mass. If we begin with the examination of the two; the Eucharist is a sacrament and it is a sacrifice. These two words sacrament and sacrifice need to be explained…
 
The Eucharist is a vast topic, it is essentially about God Incarnate, Christ who dwells amongst us, God who wishes to live with us. When we read St. John’s Gospel, we hear, ‘I will come to them’, ‘he who believes me, I will come to him, My Father will come to him, We will dwell with him’. This desire for God to dwell with us, is something we cannot…
 
What do we have that has not been given us? There is only one thing that is essentially our own, and that of course is our sins. Everything else is a gift to us, we begin with the gift of life. This is the most basic, this is the fundamental gift. If we do not have life, if we never existed we cannot possess any other gift. So, once God had brought…
 
Today we celebrate the annunciation of Our Lord. The great mystery of the union between God and man. When majesty puts on lowliness, where power puts on meekness, where eternity puts on time and immortality puts mortality. These are the words of the great pope, St. Leo the first. We are in the midst of this great mystery, the mystery of our redempt…
 
Quite some years ago, President, Vice President at that time George Bush, represented the US government at the funeral of the recently deceased former Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev. Bush was deeply moved, clearly by the behaviour at the funeral of Brezhnev widow. During the whole ceremony, she didn’t say anything at all, she stood there completely …
 
A silly illustration, but one which is necessary for a difficult topic. Once upon a time the was a place called Flatland. And in Flatland, Mr Square was walking along one day. This is a two dimensional world, boring place. Mr Square met someone though that changed his life forever, Mr Sphere. Mr Sphere said he came from a different place called Spa…
 
So we’re talking about the communion of Saints today. But a silly joke first. There was a painter and decorator, called Jock. He was very dishonest, he was habituality dishonest in his work, because he thinned out his paint with turpentine. Well one day the Church was up for renovation, the parish priest offered people the chance to put in their bi…
 
There was a great British writer called G K Chesterton and he said, the difficulty I have in explaining why I am Catholic, is because there are ten thousand reasons, but all those reasons amount to one, Catholicism is true. Mr Chesterton believed in the Holy Catholic Church, I believe in the Holy Catholic Church and indeed we have reached this arti…
 
I said we were going to talk about the article of Faith, ‘I believe in the forgiveness of sins’, principally that refers to sins being forgiven, original sin, through baptism. But people sin after baptism, people need forgiveness. Jesus also came to give another type of forgiveness, the type that Zacchaeus received. Forgiveness of sins, it’s a get …
 
Before we introduce a theme and we talked about virtue we mentioned that virtue is a good habit, which prepares a person, to act, to carry out other actions in accordance with right reason. To act rationally. With all moral virtues, justice, fortitude, prudence, any of these, right reason indicates to the person with regards to their actions, the r…
 
So today we want to focus on the virtue of Justice. But to make it a little bit easier for the younger ones here, a little story that highlights the main elements. There was a young price called Prince Lapio. He was making a lot of mistakes in the kingdom because he didn’t have good judgement. He used to decide cases in favour of the person who was…
