Was there a good point in the sermon you heard at your Mass of Sunday Obligation?
Let us know what it was.
For my part, for Sexagesima, I spoke of receiving well the Word in God, in which Christ is present and which is salvific. We should consider the before, during and after. Farmers plan their crops and prepare the terrain. We have to get rid of the rocks and stumps and make good furrows. Preparing to receive well the texts at Mass means reading them ahead of time. As the plants grow, we have to weed and keep distractions and dangers to the spiritual life out of the garden of the soul and water and fertilize so we can bear fruit well and have a good harvest. As we are reading or hearing readings at Mass we have to be attentive with full, conscious and actual participation. Listening is not passive! It is hard work. The harvest that is gathered has to be stored properly and also distributed and shared. We should ponder what we receive. Mary is a model for this. She pondered things in her heart and them burst into activity and shared the fruits of the meditation in action and outward prayer during the Visitation. We can review the texts of Mass for a couple days after Sunday until we turn our attention to next Sunday, thus continuing the cycle of preparation, planting, tending and reaping.
Along the way I may have gotten in a couple comments about the Fishwrap and sanctuaries full of women, ex-nuns, active participation taken to mean that people have to carry stuff around, etc. Maybe.
