“Some of our younger parish clergy read their sermons. This should not be done except for some very special reason. The priest who is not capable of preparing and delivering a brief, clear instruction on Catholic teaching to his people is not fit to be in parish work. The people as a rule do not want to listen to a sermon reader.”
— Archbishop of Baltimore (9 July 1929)

From the Campion Hymnal.


CHOIR PRAYER (from CAMPION HYMNAL) happens after attendance is taken:

SEVENTH STATION • Jesus Falls the Second Time

Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise Thee, Because by Thy Holy Cross Thou hast redeemed the world.

In the second temptation on the mount, the devil asked Our Blessed Lord to abandon Himself wholly to God and to take no care or thought of Himself, saying: “Cast Thyself down, for the angels will bear Thee up.” But the Saviour answered: “Thou shalt not tempt the Lord, Thy God,” reminding Satan that God never saves us against our will, but only when we cooperate with His grace.

This temptation came not from the flesh, but from the world, which so many times has said to me: “Cast thyself down on the rocks of sin; abandon thyself to God; God is Merciful; He will bear thee up; there is plenty of time for repentance—God will take care of you.” And many times I, unlike the Master, have succumbed to such whisperings and sinned by presumption, then made a half-hearted resolution to amend, and fell again.

Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God, That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
