Fr. Frank Pavone from the Priests for Life celebrated Mass here giving a powerful homily about the importance of life and what this means for us in this Easter season. “The last word of the human story cannot be death but is LIFE.”He also reflected on Pope Francis’ words from his recent apostolic exhortation, Amoris Laetitia “Each child has a place in God’s heart from all eternity; once he or she is conceived, the Creator’s eternal dream comes true”. May YOU know your eternal place in God’s heart as you listen to this truth!
Fr. Boniface Hicks, O.S.B., Matthew 23: 1-12, March 3, 2015, Tuesday of the 2nd Week of Lent,
Do we need to forgive others for not being “God” to us? What does it mean that the Lord will “exalt” us when we are humbled?… a party under the tail of the devil? Listen for more…

Bishop R. Daniel Conlon is the former Bishop of the Diocese of Steubenville (2002-2011). He presided at the Dedication of our new chapel, Father of Mercy, on August 1, 2010 and preached a beautiful homily that captured the spirituality of the chapel. He was recently moved to the Diocese of Joliet, Illinois.

Bishop David Zubik is the 12th and current Bishop of the Diocese of Pittsburgh. We were privileged to have him celebrate Mass for us on October 22nd, 2011 at the dedication of our Divine Mercy image in Father of Mercy Chapel. This also happened to be the first feast day of Blessed John Paul II. Below is a wonderful homily on Divine Mercy and Blessed John Paul II.
Father Boniface Hicks, O.S.B. is a Benedictine monk of St. Vincent’s Archabbey and is a programming manager and host for We Are One Body (WAOB) Catholic radio in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. We have been blessed to have him here celebrating Mass for us each month on our Day of Renewal (a day of prayer and renewal for the Sisters). Because his homilies have blessed us so much we began recording them in the hope that many more shall be blessed by His wisdom and depth. Enjoy!
