Sermons according to the Traditional

Our Lady of the Rosary

October is the month of the Holy Rosary.  I took this picture outside of the Shrine of the Virgin of the Rosary of Pompei in Italy during Easter week of 2016.  The Church was built about 140 years ago by a former-satanist, Bl. Bartolomo Longo, a man who changed his life through the Rosary.  He is now up for canonization.

15° Sunday After Pentecost

Who caused the crisis in the Church? I did.


“I hereby commit to staying engaged with the suffering of the world, as long as I am alive and as much as I am able.

I commit to this because on the cross no tear is cried in vain, no ache in the heart is unfruitful.

If I will gaze, wide-eyed, at the suffering of the world AND lean in, I will begin to learn what it is to be human, and I will see Jesus.

And there is no other way of being a Christian for me anymore. None whatsoever. If I don’t suffer with/for the world I might as well quit.

If I believe the Gospel—if Jesus really did come to heal me and the whole human race—then I commit to being a vessel of that healing.

His mercy is deep and wide enough for the entire world. Healing humanity is why He lived and died. How can I live for anything else, and how can I not die for it?”—Audrey Assad
