“Mary is the most sweet bait, chosen, prepared, and ordained by God, to catch the hearts of men. The devotions we practice in honour of the glorious Virgin Mary, however trifling they may be, are very pleasing to Her Divine Son, and He rewards them with eternal glory.”
St. Catherine of Siena

Latest Show - On the Psalms by Father George

"Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus"

Father George tells us the Latin phrase “Extra Ecclesiam nulla salus” means: “Outside the Church there is no salvation”. Catholics interprets this to mean that "all salvation comes from Christ the Head through the Church which is his Body." CCC 830 for a context that will help in understanding these three essential points concerning this teaching - There is no salvation apart from Christ and his One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church. Again, this is an infallible teaching and not up for debate among Catholics. Those who are “invincibly” ignorant concerning the truth of #1 above will not be culpable for this lack of knowledge before God. Those in the category of #2 have the real possibility of salvation even if they never come to an explicit knowledge of Christ and/or his Church.

Father George continues his road on the direction of our souls according to Blessed Don Marmion. The ways of God are entirely different from our ways. To us it seems necessary to employ powerful means in order to produce great effects. This is not God's method; quite the contrary. He likes to choose the weakest instruments that He may confound the strong: "God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong - Infirma mundi elegit ut confundat fortia". Here is an example to help you understand the efficacy of the Rosary. You remember the story of David who vanquished Goliath. What steps did the young Israelite take to overthrow the giant? He struck him in the middle of the forehead with a pebble from his sling. 

Bl. Don Marmion the mystery of the Christ Child

Father George begins his road on the direction of our souls. Blessed Don Marmion tells about the mystery of the Christ Child.We must gather fruit from this Child. Blessed Columba Marmion, born Joseph Aloysius Marmion (April 1, 1858 - January 30, 1923) was an Irish monk, and the third abbot of Maredsous Abbey. Beatified by Pope John Paul II on September 3, 2000, Marmion was one of the most popular and influential Catholic writers of the 20th century. His books are considered spiritual classics. What is the most important thing about the Nativity of Jesus Christ, the Babe in the Manger. We have a wonderful exchange with Jesus - Christ takes our human nature and gives us in return a participation of His Divine nature.

" Seek refuge in Mary because she is the city of refuge. We know that Moses set up three cities of refuge for anyone who inadvertantly killed his neighbor. Now the Lord has established a refuge of mercy, Mary, even for those who deliberately commit evil. Mary provides shelter and strength for the sinner."
Saint Anthony of Padua (1195 - 1231)

About Radio Immaculata

St Maximilian strove throughout his life – with great success – to bring this message to the world through mass media; he published newspapers and periodicals, broadcasted on the airwaves, and even had plans for a movie studio! As an apostolate of the Marian Franciscans, Radio Immaculata exists to continue St Maximilian’s important work. To this end, our programming schedule is structured around the Holy Rosary, which will be prayed on air four times a day, every day, so listeners can tune in and pray together with the friars, wherever in the world.
