Was there a good point or two from the sermon you heard for your Mass of Sunday obligation?
Let us know.
For the EF, I spoke of the move I am currently enduring and sorting and getting rid of things. I used this as a metaphor of our Lenten discipline. When we move we have an opportunity to get rid of things, to get rid of impedimenta, the Latin word for the ancient Roman military baggage train. We struggle sometimes to get rid of stuff we haven’t seen for a long time and really don’t need. We have to detach from sins and not feel affection for them. We can use Lent to help detach from sins and from material things.
For the OF, I touched also the point about moving, but I also spoke of how Christ used the technology of the boat and line to speak to more people as they stood on shore and listened. That was the first instance of “on-line ministry”. Christ is the Perfect Communicator. He communicated in words and actions. We are members of Christ, the Communicator, the Word. Christ should be reflected in our words and actions. We have to know our Faith and be ready to communicate it, even when we risk blow back and problems. Then I touched on the role of the Sacrament of Confirmation in our lives when we face challenges as Christians.
