Courageous Homily on Humanae Vitae and former Cardinal McCarrick – a must listen

by Steve Ray on July 30, 2018

It is sad when you have to send around a homily because it is so exceptional. This kind of truthful and powerful homily should be standard fare at every parish on every Sunday. Sadly it is not, so people like me have to get excited when they discover such a hard-hitting homily. And we send it around.

This homily was preached by convert Fr. Jay Scott Newman on Sunday, July 29, 2018. It deals with Humane Vitae and the sins of Cardinal McCarrick (who gratefully is no longer a Cardinal). I highly recommend you listen and pass it along. Thanks to Steve Wood for sharing it with me.

Yes, Steve, we do need more homilies like this. We always hear about God’s Mercy, and that is good. But we also need to hear about His Judgement and what we must do to attain Salvation. Thanks for posting this. See you in September in Israel. Really looking forward to your pilgrimage and hearing your teachings in the Holiest Land of all.

Hi Steve. Active homosexuals are rampant in the clergy and apparently the issue was not dealt with from almost 2 decades ago. So, my question is this. When Jesus said that the gates of hell will not prevail against his Church, how do we know what that entails? If it happens, does the world end? Isn’t the homosexual crisis promoted in the clergy basically hell taking over the Church?
Any insight?
Thanks,
Mike

Steve Ray here: Mike, thanks for your comments and questions. Do not fear because Jesus will always protect his church. There has never been a Golden Age Caps off of the Church. Even during Saint Pauls Time the Church Had A Lot Of Problems Balls with Loyalty and Cler Steve Ray here: Mike, thanks for your comments and questions. Do not fear because Jesus will always protect his church. There has never been a Golden Age. Even during Saint Pauls time the church had many problems with both the laity in the clergy.

When Jesus said that the gates of hell would not prevail against his church she did that mean we would not have problems or struggles or difficulties.

What he meant is that the church would always exist and the Devil and the world would never be able to extinguish it. There was never a promise that we would not have troubles and trials and sin. The promises that the church will always survive and be a testimony to the world.
