Was there a good point in the sermon you heard for your Mass of Sunday obligation?
Let us know.
NB: If it isn’t a good point, don’t even think of posting it. Keep it positive and constructive, please. Thanks in advance.
Among other things, during Mass in the Extraordinary Form this foggy morning, I pointed out that what the Lord said of John, who was in Christ’s words the greatest man born of woman, can be reminders for our own lives. Christ asks His audience what they came out into the desert to see? Someone shaky? No, John is strong and unshakable. Someone pampered? No, John is austere. We too need to be firm in our own calling, as John was, and not swayed from the truth by pressure or fear. We, too, need to take stock of our use of material goods and, especially in this time of penitential preparation, mortify ourselves.
Furthermore, the examples which Christ sends back to John in prison as signs of who He is so that John my make his act of Faith (the blind see, the lame walk, etc.), should be the signs that others see in us (through works of mercy) so that, by our dicta et facta, people might be themselves drawn to the Faith and to Christ through them.
