Homily - Ascension Thursday - May 14, 2015

Acts 1:1-11; Mk. 16:14-20

When I was a child, my grandparents used to visit us for the summer from Massachusetts.  When it came time for them to leave, of course, there were tears.  I remember once, my grandmother rolled down the window of the car, and said, “If we don’t go, we can’t come back.”  We were somehow consoled by these words.  We know that, though unseen, the bonds of love, and of longing, and of the hope of seeing our loved ones again, are very palpable.

The Occult and Satanism in America

The Occult and Satanism in America
This article-report (page 10) is based on studies by the author Rex Teodosio as well as an interview with ex-satanist Zachary King. It is meant to raise awareness regarding the growing popularity of the occult and satanism in America, its threat to our children and how society is being transformed to be more accepting of the devil.

A Medal, a Vision, a Conversion
The conversion story of Claude Newman (page 22).  Claude Newman was a twenty-year-old African American who, in 1943, awaited execution in a prison in Mississippi. His crime was that of ambushing and shooting a man named Sid Cook, his beloved grandmother’s abusive second husband.

The Hidden Treasure: Holy Mass by St. Leonard of Port Maurice

There are several copies available to loan out.  Please contact me at if you would like to read this inspiring short book! 

The Hidden Treasure. This book written by St. Leonard who lived from 1676-1751, describes the great spiritual power of the Mass, how it holds back the wrath of God, its wonderful eternal and temporal benefits and several excellent ways to pray at Mass. Hidden Treasure is the prototype book on the Mass for all other books on the same subject; others basically repeat what this small book contains.  Read more

Homily - Fifth Sunday after Easter - May 10, 2015

Jas. 1:22-27; Jn. 16:23-30
As you know, in the Gospels, the disciples were sometimes slow to recognize our Lord after His resurrection.  This is not because they did not know Him.  After a few clues, they recognized Him readily.  We cannot blame them too much.  The resurrection of the Lord was something they had never seen before and could hardly have expected.

Zachary King - Monday Conference at San Felipe Chapel

Posted by Fr. Fryar:

This is very last minute, but an FSSP parishioner from Florida is visiting Los Angeles and has agreed to stay two extra days so that he can give a conference on Monday Night, at San Felipe at the usual time, after the 7pm Mass.  Mr King is a convert - he was High Wizard of the Church of Satan. About as deep into Satanism as you can go, or as high up, however you want to look at it. He will give the story of his conversion, and will be able to take any questions and answers that you may have.  He also gave a talk at the parish in New Jersey when I was there, and I have to express that his conversion story is phenomenal, and I have not heard anyone more capable of answering any questions on the topic of Satanism that you may have.  This is an exciting opportunity. If you are able to make it, it will definitely be worth it.

If you would like to find out more about him, this is his website:
