Welcome to the St. John the Beloved
Preached Homilies
Audio Repository

Here you will find audio recordings of the homilies preached at Masses at the St. John the Beloved parish (McLean, Virginia). Originally, only the homily preached at the Noon Sunday Mass was recorded with the occasional recording of other Masses. As of 2012, the homily for the 10:30 AM Mass is most often recorded and the homily for the Noon Mass is infrequently recorded. Some weeks there may be no homily recorded.

On occasion, lecture series and reflections offered at St. John the Beloved may also be recorded. These can be found on the right side of the page below (or the bottom, if your browser window is currently too narrow for side by side display).

This web page is maintained (as a volunteer activity) by Corey Huber. In the spring of 2012, Mr. Huber moved to Central Virgina and now other volunteers actually do the work of recording the Masses. Therefore, recordings are not posted until a card is filled and mailed to Mr. Huber.

Tall Guy AV has been defunct for some time now, but it seemed useful to keep this site available. Mr. Huber (together with Mrs. Huber) now runs the Mater Ecclesiae Fund for Vocations. Check out the Fund at fundforvocations.org and prayerfully consider whether you can help us promote vocations.

All homilies presented here are in mp3 format and free of charge. The gospel reading usually preceeds the homily so there will be context should the homily be based on the readings. The date and time of the Mass and the identity of the homilist are usually given with each link.

Since October 21, 2007, the noon Mass at St. John the Beloved has been offered according to the Extraordinary Form (aka Traditional Latin Mass). Accordingly, the gospel readings will differ from what you heard at Mass if you attended a Ordinary Form Mass on the same day.

Mr. Huber may assign a title to a homily (sometimes with a further explanation) for the benefit of helping you find a specific homily.

The list of homilies is getting a little long, so here are some helful links:
