As you can hear during this homily, St Joseph is one of my favorite saints. For me, he is the BodyGuard of Mary and of Jesus. Here is a comment to follow up and expand my thoughts shared today.

By being the guard of the body of Mary, and by taking her under his care, St Joseph protected Mary, and thus Jesus who was in her womb. He defended Mary and the fruit of her womb, thus protecting the cornerstone from being stoned to death which was the penalty to unfaithful woman.

I had a beautiful mass today with the students, staff and parents of the beautiful Houston school named John Paul II Catholic School. I used one of their upcoming event for the theme of my homily today, which is a friendly race that will be held on November 3rd. I invite you all to join us if you can. And the most important is that we all join together in the race of our spiritual life. Let us go all in ONE DIRECTION, following Jesus Himself.

Sorry for the delay of publishing, but I have the excuse that I am in holidays with my family... I am in Canada near Montreal until September 14th.  I am so excited about tomorrow, because I will celebrate the baptism of my 2 nieces, Emma 9 months and Emilie about 1 month old.

So I make a pause to my holidays (nothing heroic there) in order to publish the homily I gave almost 2 weeks ago now, before leaving from the Catholic Charismatic Center and Houston Texas.

Thank you Lord for your work in me, yes Lord, I give you permission to renew my heart, I am ready for the heart transplant I need, change my heart so I can have a new heart of flesh, beating according to your holy rythm.

“And I will give you a new heart, and put a new spirit within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and will give you a heart of flesh.”

 

 

Without God, we have a heart of stone, stony heart.

Does a heart of stone beat ? Listen to the rocks. They do not make any sounds, have no rhythm, have no life, they are cold, stone-cold.

When the heart stops, life ceases.

If we have a stony heart, we are in cardiac arrest, we are dead, dead cold, stone cold.

Maybe we can invent this new expression: ‘stone cold dead’.

We need CPR: Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation

Resuscitation, Resurrection, New Life

Reanimation technique, cardiac massage: heart first, than breathing.

Heart first, than the breath of the Holy Spirit.

Who wants to receive CPR?

 

Is a heart of stone light? No, it is a heavy heart, a very heavy heart.

It is a heart that weighs us down, that prevents us to run, even prevents us to walk.

A heart of stone is a heart that does not allow us to go forward, a heart that paralyzes us.

A heart that brings us nowhere.

A heart that prevents us to walk toward Jesus. With a heart of stone, there is NO way we can follow Him, who is “the Way, the Truth and the Life.” Amen?

 

 

Need for an Open Heart surgery

Without a Heart transplant, we are dead, stone cold dead:

When we have our heart transplant, we need meds for life, for our body not to reject it.

Here the meds are the Eucharist, that incorporate our new heart.  

 

Sacred Heart of Jesus

Immaculate Heart of Mary

St John Marie Vianney: The priesthood is the love of the heart of Jesus.

The heart of Jesus gives us life.

“This is my Blood given up for you”

At some point, the heart of Jesus was working because of the heart of Mother Mary

Same rythm, unisson

·        Children, one of my greatest desires now is holding my new nieces in my arms for the first time

·        One of them would probably fit in my hands, Emilie, 1 week old, the other one, well she is 9 months...

·        Let’s think about Emilie now

·        So small yet so great,

·        So vulnerable, yet so precious, of an infinite value

·        So fragile, yet so beautifully made, and complete

·        But completely dependent on her parents

 

·        Now we can think about the unborn

·        So small yet so great

·        So vulnerable, yet so precious, of an infinite value

·        So fragile, yet so beautifully made, and complete, and infinitely loved by the Father

·        So tiny, yet so human, fully human

·        Yes fully human, but in such a need for protection, defenseless without our protecting hands, joined in prayer

 

·        And the mystery of the Eucharist parallels that as well

·        So small yet so great

·        So vulnerable, yet so precious, of an infinite value

·        So fragile, yet so beautifully made and infinitely loved by the Father

·        So tiny, yet so human, in fact fully human & fully divine

·        Yes fully divine, but in such a need for protection, defenseless without our protecting hands in prayer , or our hands receiving Him in communion like we receive a tiny baby, like a crib, but not a cold wooden crib, a warm living receiving hands for Him, our All, Jesus Christ

·        As our understanding of the mystery of the Eucharist grows, let us ask for our devotion to the cause of Life to grow as well

Eunuchs for the Kingdom

Guardians of the harem of a King

Accountants for the King, ensure that there would be no danger for the wife to steal the credit card

 

Spirituality of Celibacy in consecrated life, especially for priests

Not a dogma, not in the creed, but it is a discipline. In theory, it is something that could change.

But now I want to share beautiful reasons for it not to change. Theological reasons.

 

Humanae Vitae says that true conjugal love has four characteristic marks:

 it is “an act of the free will,” is “total,” “faithful” and “fruitful” (HV, No. 9)

 

Free:

vocation is answer to call of God, free to listen or not,

when you hear a ring on your phone, you can take the call or not,

Free means also not out of default, ex literal eunuchs cannot become priests,

Freely embraced

 

Total:

Completely: love the Lord with all your heart, all your soul, all your spirit and all your strength

No distractions, undivided heart, “all in”, full time, full attention, full everything

Trying to be  “All to all”, like the Bible says “All things to all men (1 Cor9,22)”,

not all to one person, but all to “the One” with capital letter O, God Himself and His Church

Reminds me  of these other very important words from the Bible regarding marriage: “the 2 shall become one”.  Gen 2,24

As acting in the person of Christ, the word made flesh, the priest becomes one flesh w the Church

“This is my body which will be given up for you”, who is you? The Church.

Consummation of the act of Love between Christ and his Bride, the Church

 

Faithful:

undivided heart,

no exclusive relationship with a woman,  

because when acting in the person of Christ, exclusive relationship with His bride, the Church

 

Fruitful:

Life coming from the sacraments,

Baptism, new life in Christ, adoption as sons and daughters of the Father

 

The reason why I consecrated my priesthood to the Holy Family. We need holy families for Holy priesthood. Let’s pray for all of us to answer our universal call, which is to holiness. Amen? Amen

Sorry for the delay in publishing lately. We are still in some situations that command adaptation as we are beautifying the Catholic Charismatic Center by changing its original carpets. This reminds me of a saying by Fr Bob Bedard, our Founder that goes more or less like this:

To have renewal in the Church, you need to accept that there will be some chaos.

Amen, Amen I tell you, there is a lot of renewal happening in our Church right now. Praying that the new carpets help us in our ever neeeded spiritual renewal as well.

On Monday, I was blessed to celebrate mass at Incarnate Word Academy, an all girls high school in downtown Houston. I was very impressed by the group of young girls involved in the chaplaincy, obviously under the guidance of God through the work of a good friend of mine, Gina. Let's pray in thanksgiving for the good things that happen in our Catholic School through the people that work tirelessly for the spreading of the faith in Jesus Christ.

Hello y'all,

Very happy with a very blessed weekend, but very tired. I would like to repeat the words of Padre Emiliano Tardif, from my province in Quebec, so I will say it in French: "Jesus est Vivant, mais moi je suis mort." (Jesus is Alive, but I am dead of tiredness)

We had an evangelization retreat in Spanish, with more than 11 hours of confession divided by 3 priests, and I had to give 4 different homilies and 2 talks... Mucho trabajo!!! But God provided me strenght and inspiration, as usual. God is good, all the time.

 Wound that healed St Ignatius of Loyola

Praise the Lord for his marvelous and innumerable gifts!

Today I share about St Ignatius of Loyola. I invite you to join me in praying for all the Jesuits in the world as they celebrate the feast of their founder. In a particular way, I prayed for Archbishop Terrence Prendergast who ordained me to the priesthood on May 29, 2010. I invite you to visit him on his blog when you have a chance. http://archbishopterry.blogspot.com/ 

Let us pray to the intercession of St Ignatius in order to always be more converted to Jesus Christ, and to receive the fullness of the Holy Spirit so that we can continue the fight for the building up of the Kingdom with His discernment, all this for the Greater Glory of God.

Innocent Blood and the Curse Becoming a Blessing

Praise God for his Infinite Love and Mercy! Precious Blood of Jesus Christ, make us appreciate your Holy Sacrifice.

This homily was for a pro-life mass this morning, followed by the prayer of the Rosary at an abortion clinic, and then I had the blessing of visiting a bus converted into a facility for welcoming women, listening to them, doing a pregnancy test and even seeing the baby through the ultrasound. Let's keep praying for conversion of all involved and we can do that through the intercession of the babies who have lost their life and are praying for us right now.

Dear faithful listeners,

We have reached the 101 downloads in this podcast. Praise God! Keep spreading the Good News of God's marvelous deeds in your life, and keep sharing those reflections if Jesus has used them to touch your heart and make you experience His Infinite Love.

Today's homily was based on Sirach 44: "Let us now praise men of renown and our fathers in their generation. ... these were men of mercy, whose Godly deeds have not failed: Good things continue with their seed, their posterity are a holy inheritance, and their seed has stood in the covenants. And their children for their sakes remain forever, their seed and their glory shall not be forsaken. Their bodies are buried in peace, and their name live unto generation and generation. Let the people shew forth their wisdom, and the church declare their praise."

Thank you Lord for all the saints, especially the seed of your holy martyrs, seed that bless us because soaked in the Victory of the Blood of Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour. Thank you Lord for your healing touch.

Alleluia for St James the Apostle and the Pilgrimage to Compostela

Today is the 5 year anniversary of our arrival to the Pilgrimage site of St James of Compostelle, Santiago de Compostella in Spain after 250 miles or 400 km by foot. Thank you Jesus for this amazing spiritual experience that taught me so much. Thank you to also have healed my blisters... since then.

St James the Apostle, pray for us. 

Blessings and Peace. United in prayer and mission.

Buen Camino!

Thank you to Walter and Martha for their ministry of feeding the poor near the Catholic Charismatic Center in Houston, and thank you to Felicia and the Youth from DIG (Disciples in Growth) Ministry who beautifully served the poor today despite the heat. Here is a reflection from this enriching experience that I was priviledged to live with them this morning.

The community gathered for Daily Mass at the Catholic Charismatic Center in Houston had the privilege to celebrate the mysteries of God's Love in the Eucharist with the whole priestly team today. Thank you Fr Mark and Fr Francis for teaching me so much as my brothers with the Companions of the Cross.
