Homily #121116bs ( 21min) Play - Fr. Louis Maximilian from our friary in New Bedford, Mass. gives a homily for the opening mass for his retreat on the words of St Benedict XVI on Mary, "The Woman of the Yes". Father covers the fact that the pope was a famous theologian prior to his election, having played a central role in the Second Vatican Council. When Pope Benedict speaks of Mary he focuses on the fact that her entire life is one big "Yes!", saying "yes" to her Lord and to the plan of salvation and the role she is to play in this which God has decreed for her before time began.

    St. JUDE: I am alone in body but not in spirit. I Work with the dead. Often I can feel the cry's of the children from abuse. I Work in pathology. We never talk of the things we deal with
    on a day in, out basic.
    54 ,No wife, No children.
    My children are those that died of abuse. I do cry for many in my home.
    Often it is enough to drive one insane. How can one do to their on children?
    My Sister thinks I am letting work get in the way. I only wish I could helped just one of the children, before he is on my table!

    Thank you Father. Your words were very intriguing and heartfelt. May they pass to all that hear your words. Always lingering, never forgetting. Blessings...
