The 7 Desires of Our Hearts That The 7 Sacraments Respond To

Last edited 19th June 2018

The search to fulfill our many desires is what leads people through their lives in one direction or another. We live in a time where the dominant belief is that life is short and we should fulfill those desires by any means necessary. That mentality leads people in the wrong direction for actual fulfillment and leads instead to compromising of self. People find themselves astray; feeling empty, distressed, irrelevant, neglected, and bitter. So where should we look in order to find true fulfillment of all that we desire? We find our fulfilment in Christ, and we actually find that our desires are responded to by the 7 Sacraments that the Church offers her members.

Fr. Mike uses the classic myths involving the Sirens to explain some ways to avoid temptation. He points out the differences between the ways Ulysses, his crew, and Jason of the Argonauts dealt with the monsters and suggests we use some advice St. Paul gave to the Philippians when dealing with temptations.

Winning Souls Through the Met Gala

Last edited 10th May 2018

On the one hand, it seemed odd. Why would the minds behind the Met Gala — an event attended by famously secular, “do what you want, there is no truth” minded celebrities — pick a theme that literally has the word “Catholic” in the title? Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination is a pretty ardently Catholic theme, chosen to celebrate the opening of an exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, where very obviously Catholic stuff is on display — things like papal tiaras, items from the sacristy of the Sistine Chapel, religious vestments, even a relic of St. Valentine, all while sacred music is played overhead. The entire exhibit puts sacred images and items in full view, showing how Catholicism has influenced the world of fashion and art, and how the Church’s art has played a seemingly huge role in the imagination of designers and artists.

Discovering God's Will Within Us

Last edited 7th May 2018

St. Catherine of Siena is known for saying, “Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.” In this video, Matt Fradd seconds that notion and encourages us to be the person our deepest desires tell us to be, because that's the person God wants us to be. God gives us those desires so we can pursue them, and we're only going to waste our lives if we live as anyone other than who God made us to be.
