Advent, A Changing Season Talk 1 - Ways of Change      Advent, A Changing Season Talk 2 - Means of Change


The Cave of the Heart            Slaying Dragons & Charming Angels

Honest questions deserve honest answers:  Learning humility     Living and loving the virtue of humility

In the Beginning          A World Without End

The Exaltation of the Cross:  From Suffering to Triumph    Our Lady of Sorrows:  From Suffering to Love

The "cell" of the home:  practical solitude and silence in an active world     The "cell" of the body:  being "at home" wherever and whenever we pray

Love and Suffering unite:  The "Lenten Character" of Christian Life     Love Enfleshed:  Lenten spiritual practices and our everyday lives


St. Joseph Morning of Recollection - December 5, 2020

Advent Morning of Recollection

Father Cassian will be preaching two spiritual conferences on "The Three Comings of Christ", a theme popularized by the great saint Bernard of Clairvaux in the 12th century.

Christ's first coming was his birth among us in the flesh through the Virgin's womb;  

His second coming will be at the end of time at the final judgment;

His third coming is the most mysterious: In the human heart at every present moment.

All three comings are a focal point of the Advent season, and well worth preparing for.
