Where are we going? A Franciscan Friar gives us some thoughts for 2014

Fr George Roth is a Franciscan Friar of the Immaculate.

He, like all of those in the order, is orthodox, true to Christ's teachings, keen to keep us free from becoming tainted by the world. Keen to save souls.

What better way to start the New Year than to listen to his wise and compassionate words...

You may view Fr George's sermon HERE


  1. living proof that a homily can expound the long taught truths of the Church and, because of clarity and truth, bring real comfort along with the 'exhortation' to charity. how many people at most homilies just get a vague impression of, 'be nice', because the world is better at being nice than you lot. nice world nice world etc.

    this is the first time I've heard the word purgatory in a homily in...maybe never.

    Immaculata, protect the Catholicity, the authenticity of the Faith of your children. Amen.

  2. Tweeted and Facebooked, because such an excellent homily, the like of which I have not heard in 50 years.

    A happy New Year to you and yours. God bless!

  3. Richard,
    Excellent post and video, which clarifies,exemplifies and promulgates the truths of our Catholic Faith! A BLESSED,HAPPY AND PEACEFUL NEW YEAR TO YOU AND ALL YOUR READERS!



  4. Many thanks for this inspiring post Richard. Wishing you and yours a happy and blessed New Year. Brian.

  5. Purgatory. Suffering. I nearly passed out. How clear, how simple, how truly based on the Catechism, how Catholic. Thank you, Richard. I wish you and your family and all your blog readers a peace-filled and blessed 2014, as I pray will be accorded the FFI.

  6. I have met, heard and got a 4 disc set of Fr. George giving a talk and he is inspiring. Such a lovely priest.
    Thank you for a wonderful blog Richard, you have sent us treats and funnies amongst the wreckage. Have a wonderful, healthy blest 2014. And, hope to meet up for some 'dark gossip ' soon. God bless you and all your loved ones. Mom A. ( Hahaha)
