Was there a good point in the sermon you heard this Sunday?
Let us know.
For my part, I spoke about the insolence of those who set themselves against the doctrine of the Church on faith and morals. I went on to warn about the great pressure that will be placed on you who affirm faith and morals as taught by the Church. The insolent will attack you and accuse you of being against mercy and of being without compassion. They pit mercy against “dogma” (note the scare quotes), compassion against “legalism”. We must not fall into the trap of wavering on doctrine about faith and morals even though it is hard not to be liked. We must pray for those who are wavering, especially priests and bishops, so that they don’t sell out the truth for the sake of false mercy and false compassion which are really giving in to the Devil and an insolent defiance of God’s will and teaching in the the only Holy Church which He founded.
