  1. Many Catholics are likely unfamiliar with the Quicumque or Athanasian Creed which emphasizes with great detail most especially the Catholic doctrine on the Trinity. This credal formula was beloved by defender of the Salvation Dogma, Fr Leonard Feeney, “canceled” by his Jesuit order. Having received assistance in a practical concern in wake of a simple novena requesting his help from eternity (it consisted of a daily Pater, Ave, Gloria & recitation of this creed), I encourage the practice as an efficient way of immersing one’s self in the majestic truth of the Godhead.
    (Lest anyone object on a point of premature dulia: one’s freedom in private devotion is not restricted as would be the case in a public manifestation of the same. In any case, the prayers are the Church’s own & carry their own force.)

  2. I enjoyed this homily Br. Bugnolo. I would like to share a poem which always gives me comfort.

    Before the Beginning

    by Christina Rossetti

    Before the beginning Thou hast foreknown the end,
    Before the birthday the death-bed was seen of Thee:
    Cleanse what I cannot cleanse, mend what I cannot mend.
    O Lord All-Merciful, be merciful to me.

    While the end is drawing near I know not mine end:
    Birth I recall not, my death I cannot foresee:
    O God, arise to defend, arise to befriend,
    O Lord All-Merciful, be merciful to me.

  3. Listening to Brother is so edifying in this Spiritual Battle its like having a Spiritual director
    Praise God

    1. I am not your spiritual director. I am just summarizing a lifetime of reading good Catholic books and authors.

      1. Well done Brother in both your correction and initial direction.
        Keep doing the things that hastens Mary crushing the skull of the serpent!

  4. So edifying, Bro. Bugnolo!

    Thank you for reiterating the #1 Commandment.

    The Holy Ghost truly works through you!

    God bless you and continue to give you good health to proclaim the Truth of Our Lord.

    Ave Maria!

  5. I’m glad for these talks because the Christians who are fighting what’s going on In society, the average mother, father and lay people, truly need as much encouragement spiritually to keep faithful to the Faith! Unfortunately we are like sheep wandering in the desert desperate for our shepherd, the clergy, but many seem to be locking arms with the world. I truly feel like I’m in the desert desperate for a cup of cold water for my soul. Thank God for the Heavenly Host,Our Blessed Mother, Angels and Saints because lately they are my only comfort and best friends giving me Strength and encouraging me on! Long Live Christ the King!

  6. Brother Alexis,
    I like your material, I have contributed to the “Save Old St Mary”.

    As a “cradle catholic” who only grew up going through the motions, I am enjoying many of your videos. 20 years ago, I came back to attending Mass after being away for a couple decades. Now at the age of nearly 60, I am still wishing to learn more.

    You say Adoration is more than prayer, then you say prayer is the adoration. It’s circular. I am looking for more clarity.

    Anything you can offer to help explain this?

    1. Adoration is more than what most catholics do as prayer, which is recite prayers or follow mass or ask for favors. Adoratio is the essential oartvif true prayer because we must first return back to total sumission to the Holy Trinity as the platform of our life
