FullSizeRender-8

Below is the homily of Fr. Perrone from this past Sunday’s 9:30 a.m. EF Mass.

With deepest regrets there is no audio for the August 16th homily on the Eucharist, but we will attempt to get text for that in September and post it here at GrottoCast.

This homily focused on the readings for the 13th Sunday after Pentecost in the traditional calendar.

GOSPEL ¤ Luke 17. 11-19

[Our Divine Redeemer heals ten lepers, both Jews and Samaritans, who have recourse to Him. “Arise, thy faith hath made thee whole.” Through His Church Our Lord gives back health to the souls, Jews and Gentiles, who have recourse to Him.]

At that time, as Jesus was going to Jerusalem, He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee: and as he entered into a certain town, there met Him ten men that were lepers, who stood afar off, and lifted up their voice, saying: Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. Whom when He saw, He said: Go, show yourselves to the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were made clean. And one of them, when he was that he was made clean, went back, with a loud voice glorifying God: and he fell on his face before His feet, giving thanks: and this was a Samaritan. And Jesus answering said: Were not ten made clean? And where are the nine? There is no one found to return, and give glory to God, but this stranger. And He said to him: Arise, go thy way; for thy faith hath made thee whole.

2015-08-15 Homily of Fr. Eduard Perrone for the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

EDIT – AUG 17, 7:00 a.m. – The audio volume was turned up and the recording replaced.  This is probably best heard using headphones, if it is too muffled or low through speakers.  A balance had to be made with so much background noise (including an ice-cream truck) and hearing Fr. Perrone’s words.  They seem to get clearer several minutes into the recording.

This was the homily of Fr. Eduard Perrone, pastor of Assumption Grotto in Detroit, on the feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It was delivered at the evening outdoor Mass – a Solemn High Mass in the Extraordinary Form.

The quality of this recording is lower because it was not a direct feed. There is a little more background noise, but the audio is definitely good enough for those looking to hear what Grotto’s pastor had to say.

***

GOSPEL ¤ Luke 1. 41-50
† Continuation of the holy Gospel according to St. Luke.

[Elisabeth greets Mary: Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.]

At that time: Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost, and she cried out wiht a loud voice, and said: Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For behold as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy. And blessed art thou that hast believed, because those things shall be accomplished that were spoken to thee by the Lord. And Mary said: My soul doth magnify the Lord. And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior. Because He hath regarded the humility of His handmaid; for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. Because He that is mighty, hath done great things to me; and holy is His Name. And His mercy is from generation unto generation, to them that fear Him.

Homily of Fr. Eduard Perrone; 6th Sunday after Pentecost

FullSizeRender-7

I think it was somewhat unexpected that Fr. Perrone would have a Mass this weekend as he usually takes his vacation in July.  But, our priests have changed things up a bit in how they handle vacation time since our beloved ORC priests departed for their permanent home in Ohio.

With that, we do have a recording of Father’s homily from the 9:30 a.m. EF Mass.  The readings for the 6th Sunday after Pentecost can be found here.

There are still plans to upload some retreat talks Fr. Perrone gave to secular Carmelites in 2006, but these will likely come during the week.  If you subscribe by email (see right sidebar field for this), you will get notification of any new posts made here.

Homily of Fr. Eduard Perrone, on devotion to the Sacred Heart

Fr. Perrone kneels as he offers a prayer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus after Mass, then leads the Holy Rosary for God’s grace on our country.

This homily on the Sacred Heart of Jesus was delivered at the 9:30 A.M. Mass which was switched to an ordinary form due to a Mass of Thanksgiving at the Noon, in EF (1962 Missal).  You can see the photo post at Te Deum Laudamus of the Mass of Thanksgiving celebrated by Fr. Douglas Braun.

On this 11th Sunday in Ordinary Time (new calendar), Fr. Perrone discusses devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, which was on Friday.

Once again, there are lots of listening options with SoundCloud.  You can listen to it here online; you can listen at the GrottoCast page at SoundCloud; you can download a free SoundCloud app for your smart device or tablet and listen there.  If you subscribe for email delivery in the sidebar of this blog, you’ll get notice any time something new is published.   You can see more images from the Mass while listening to the audio, if you scroll below.

Attendance has been down as people head out of town on vacation. And, many went to the Mass of Thanksgiving at Noon

It’s not uncommon for Fr. Perrone to close his eyes at times while preaching.

Video: 2015 Corpus Christi Procession at Assumption Grotto

.

Following the Solemn High Mass in the Extraordinary Form*, which was also an orchestral Mass, the annual Corpus Christi Procession took place on the grounds of the parish.  What follows is a collection of video snippets, mostly with added music because the wind made keeping the audio collected practically impossible.  The last clip, which takes place in the parish Church, was preserved, despite the low quality of sound, and background noise.  The audio doesn’t do justice to the beauty of several hundred people singing, “Holy God We Praise Thy Name,” following a Eucharistic Procession.

Here is the video.  Please, share this post, and the video below in email, social media and encourage people to follow GrottoCast for more media.  Note also, that audio of Fr. Perrone’s Corpus Christi homily from the 9:30 a.m. Mass was uploaded yesterday.

Look for the option to toggle this video over to “HD” or 720, depending on the device you are watching on. On computers, it’s the little gear icon in the lower left corner; mobile devices might have an “HD” off to the lower right. This will provide the most crisp images.

*Extraordinary Form Mass (1962 Missal, aka “Tridentine”) is usually celebrated at 9:30 a.m. on Sundays.  One of a handful of exceptions when it shifts to Noon is Corpus Christi.  Watch the Grotto homepage and bulletin for such changes.
