Homily #130424 ( 06min) Play - Fr. Dominic preaches about St Fidelis, a Capuchin friar who left a promising career as a lawyer to enter the friary. He prayed daily for the gift of martyrdom. Later, he was sent to Switzerland to preach against the Protestant heresies and obtained that desire when a group of Protestant heretics dragged from his pulpit and beat him to death. He shows us that we must unite everything we do to Jesus, the true vine, if we wish it to bear fruit in this life and the next. Ave Maria!
