Cor Jesu Homily, 3/18/2020, Vigil Mass Solemn Feast of St. Joseph, Fr. John Burns

March 26, 2020

*We apologize for the sound quality, however due to current public mass guidelines, this was the most effective way that we could record the homily* 

On the day that public masses were suspended in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, Fr. John Burns gave this homily about St. Joseph and the significance of Archbishop Listecki's Eucharistic Procession to bless and offer prayers of protection for all of the faithful.

Read about the significance of March 18th in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee: 

Archbishop Jerome Listecki along with Fr. John Burns and Fr. Cliff Ermatinger visited each district of the Archdiocese to bless, offer prayers of protection and consecration to St. Joseph. 

 "A fallen man who was strong by grace in the face of temptation and under that beautiful mantle, unfolded our entire salvation. This is why we need Joseph, you are I are fallen men and women, we're not perfect like Mary and Jesus. The demon has touched our flesh and he knows his way in -Joseph terrified him for that very reason. We turn to Joseph as refuge, a friend, and as the patron of the Universal Church."

St. Joseph, terror of demons, pray for us!

5:35 - Archbishop Listecki consecrated the local Church and all her members to the patronage and care of St. Joseph.

7:30 - This region of Wisconsin has been claimed by Joseph through the prayers of our shepherd.

8:05 - On fear

9:30- Do not give up hope

10:40 - Now is the time for St. Joseph!
