Your Sunday Sermon Notes

Was there a good point made in the sermon you heard during your Mass to fulfill your Sunday Obligation?

Let us know.

For my part, I spoke about our roles in the terrible war raging in the Church today.

  1. Prayerful says:

    A Dominican Prior rather than one of the diocesan priests preached on the Rosary for the usual Sunday Solemn High Mass noted how His Son suffered so grievously on this earth for us, so no one can say He couldn’t understand. One who suffered loss was his grandmother in Wexford, made homeless when the estate house for which her family worked was torched in the 1920s, widowed when young and losing children too. There were two things in her life, her pink plastic Rosary breads and her cigarettes (fags she called them). She would lose the second, and she had lost much in her life, but God gave Himself to us. I hope I captured Fr Prior’s point in some way.

  2. My homily was entitled, “The Great delusion of our age,” in which I explored the consequences of humanity rejecting God and his creation, seeking to recreate himself, man, in his own vision, as better suits the rebel. Alas, the result is not beauty but parody.

  3. Ttony says:

    A sign is just a sign. It tells you something and that’s it. A road sign tells you that the next turning is for Portsmouth: and that’s it. A symbol is a sign but it points you to something bigger: the flag the team carries out and the national anthem point towards something beyond the signs of the flag and the team shirt. The sacraments are the only symbols which point to the change that they effect. That change is permanent. That’s why divorce is always wrong.

    Thank you for posting your homilies as I always enjoy them and am not always able to hear them locally. I think they are the best I Our sermon today was a spiritual spanking . Ouch. :D

    St Pius V entrusted everything to Our Lady at a time of crisis. We should do likewise.

    Reminded of a few weeks ago: I was riding on a bus and reading Viganò’s first letter. Suddenly a voice called out “Santa Maria!” It was the conductor announcing the next stop, outside a Catholic school. But I took it as a reminder to trust in Mary’s intercession.

  6. JuliB says:

    We went to the Henry Ford Museum this weekend, and I spent a lot of time looking for a good church to visit (I wish there was a rating system). I picked St. Alphonsus-St Clement in Dearborn, a beautiful church.

    Father focused on marriage – what it means as a sacrament, why God should be the 3rd person in the relationship, divorce, annulments and why same sex marriage isn’t.

    It wasn’t a long homily but he hit all the topics. Very impressive – both authoritative and pastoral!
