This Web Site is dedicated to the honor and glory of Almighty God, to the Most Blessed Virgin Mary, and to the Saints in Heaven. We pray to Our Lady of Good Success and to the Holy Family that many souls and their families listening to these sermons, will draw closer to the Good God now, throughout their lives here below, and finally into eternity.
Pray to the Holy Family to make your family holy! Pray to Our Lady of Good Success to restore to the See of St. Peter a true and a holy pope, to restore the Catholic Church to its former holiness, beauty, and glory throughout the world, to convert or drive out of the Catholic Church the modernists, atheists, communists, heretics, freethinkers, masons, and all who are bent on destroying the Catholic faith in the hearts and minds of her children, and assist all the bishops, priests, religious, and laity who are preserving and promoting the true Catholic faith.
Saint Robert Bellarmine: Died on September 17, 1621 at age 79. Entered the newly formed Society of Jesus in 1560 and after his ordination went on to teach at Louvain (1570-1576) where he became famous for his Latin sermons. This outstanding scholar and devoted servant of God composed an exhaustive apologetic work against the prevailing heretics of his day. This saint was the spiritual father of St. Aloysius Gonzaga, helped St. Francis de Sales obtain formal approval of the Visitation Order. He has left us a host of important writings, including works of devotion and instruction.
Saint Francis DeSales: Died on December 28, 1622 at age 55. Bishop of Geneva, Doctor of the Universal Church. Together with St. Jane Frances de Chantal, he founded (1607) the Institute of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin, for young girls and widows. His most famous book, INTRODUCTION TO THE DEVOUT LIFE, was written for ordinary people. St. Francis speaks simply, naturally, and from his heart. To speak well we need only love well, was his maxim.
Saint Alphonsus de Liguori: Died on August 1, 1787 at age 90. Founder of the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer and Bishop of St. Agatha of the Goths. These sermons are probably the most powerful and compelling ever given to mankind. Expounding on the theme, “What doth it profit a man if he gain the whole world and suffer the loss of his own soul”. St. Alphonsus dwells repeatedly on the Four Last Things: Death, Judgment, Heaven and Hell. Relentlessly, he brings the listener to consider his own eternal destiny. No one can listen to these sermons without being profoundly moved.
Saint John Marie Vianney (Cure of Ars): Died on August 4, 1859 at age 73. Was made parish priest of Ars, a village not very far from Lyons. It was in the exercise of the functions of the parish priest in this remote French hamlet that as the “Curé d’Ars” he became known throughout France and the Christian world. Intellect was not the greatest gift of St. John Vianney, but rather, a profound humility which gave him insight into the matters of life in a simple way that ordinary people could understand and his sermons which moved them to virtue and the love of God.

Abbot Leonard Giardina, RIP O.S.B.: Died January 7, 2011. A monk since 1942 and a priest since 1949. Due to the devastating effects of the modernist changes in the Roman Catholic Church, brought about by Vatican Council II and its spirit, he left his original monastery. He soon realized that it was imperative that the traditional Benedictine way of life be preserved and kept alive for the welfare of the holy Catholic Faith. On July 13, 1994, he received the Abbatial Blessing by His Excellency, Bishop Robert F. McKenna, O.P. Although the Abbatial Blessing confers on him the title and power of an abbot over a monastery, it does not make him a bishop with the power of ordaining to the Holy Priesthood. Abbot Leonard founded Christ the King Abbey in Cullman, Al and the church was dedicated on April 23, 1995.
