Sermons by the Priests of CMRI

“When the Son of Man Comes, Will He Find, Do You Think, Faith on the Earth?”
Rev. Fr. Dominic Radecki, CMRI. “The Church, as Christ founded it, is indefectible and will last until the end of time. It will faithfully pass on the Deposit of Faith, the Mass, the Sacraments and divine law throughout all ages. Our Lord declared, “The gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matt. 16:18). People, however, can fall away from the Church because they have free will, and unless they exercise due diligence and willingly cooperate with God’s grace, they are apt to be easily led astray. ”

Fatima: Diamond of Hope
1992 Fatima Conference Keynote Address by Very Rev. Fr. Denis Chicoine, CMRI. “Most of you are very familiar with Fatima. While nothing new may be said in this talk, I hope and pray that it will convince you more than ever of the vital importance of Our Lady’s message. We are talking about life and death — not in a physical sense, but eternal life and eternal death.”

The Call of God
Rev. Fr. Benedict Hughes, CMRI. “There is, certainly, in the remnant Church today, a very critical need for vocations — for priests, Brothers and Sisters to work with souls, to help bring about the salvation of souls through their lives of dedication.”

The Tremendous Value of Our Immortal Soul
Rev. Fr. Benedict Hughes, CMRI. “In a particular way, however, the image and likeness of God is seen in the human soul, which, like Him, is a spirit, immortal and exceedingly beautiful, although invisible to our eyes...”

“Lord, That I May Know Myself...”
Rev. Fr. Benedict Hughes, CMRI. “The topic of the second conference in this day of recollection is the second step of preparation for Holy Slavery, the knowledge of self. St. Louis Marie de Montfort says in his book on this devotion that one of the things Our Lady does when we give ourselves to her completely is that she gives us a knowledge of ourselves...”

The Pro-Life Message of Holy Scripture
Very Rev. Fr. Casimir Puskorius, CMRI. “We see here also a very clear expression of the Divine Maternity of Mary. Elizabeth says ‘How is it that the mother of my Lord should come to me?’ Who is her Lord? Elizabeth learned by a special inspiration that Jesus was within the womb of Mary, and she praises the Divine Motherhood of Mary. ”

Sanctifying Our Souls Through Prayer
Very Rev. Fr. Casimir Puskorius, CMRI. “As important as it is to ask God for what we need, it is even more necessary for us to listen to Him. ...Perhaps we are having difficulty in the spiritual life precisely because we are not listening enough to God.”

The Consecration at Mass, the Priesthood and Celibacy
by the Very Rev. Fr. Casimir Puskorius, CMRI “The priest’s path to holiness very much involves his celibacy. His celibacy is a very good thing. He gives up the good of marriage, the human companionship of it, so that he can give himself more fully to God. Indeed, isn’t that what St. Paul says in his letter to the Corinthians?...”

The Holy Ghost: Our Forgotten Guest
Very Rev. Fr. Casimir Puskorius, CMRI. “What is the solution for these problems in the modern Catholic Church and in society? It is the Holy Ghost. We see divisions even within the traditional Catholic movement..”

The Virtue of Patience
Very Rev. Fr. Dominic Radecki, CMRI. “Patience and self-control are never more sorely tested than in our daily sufferings. Suffering is common to all, but it is meritorious only if accepted with the proper dispositions....”
