  1. Prayerful says:

    Instead of focussing explicitly on the wheat and tares of the Gospel, Fr focussed instead on the post French Revolutionary effort to make a god of man, that instead of suffering with Christ men used empty politics and secret societies in pursuit of a false human happiness.

  2. Mike says:

    Much though our impatience might tempt us to wish that God drop a bolt of lightning upon those sowing mischief in the Church and the world, God’s patience expresses His will that all men be saved. (Father tactfully did not dwell on the eventuality of divine justice.)

  3. pappy says:

    The deacon’s homily focus on grace when we encounter God
    1) unmerited, a gift from God
    2) Shakes our foundations
    3) Helps us to see us as we really are (sinners in need of forgiveness)
    4) Invites us to participate

  4. Marg says:

    Our sermon was largely a reading from Cardinal Gerhard Muller’s. “Manifesto of Faith”.
    Correcting doctrinal errors responsible for the growing confusion about Church doctrine.
    Excellent! I wish every one in the world heard the same sermon! Talk about “cockle” and Our Lord
    having the last word.

  5. jameeka says:

    Father C brought up St John Paul II’s Apostolic Letter Novo Millennio Ineunte at the close of the Jubilee 2000 year, in which he repeated “Put out into the deep”.

    Although the Pope had become increasingly frail, he knew that with God’s Grace (despite all recent discouraging signs of decline in the Faith), he would proclaim in hopeful thanksgiving that God fulfills His promises to His people.

    After all, God had already transformed Isaiah, St Paul, and St Peter.

  6. Grant M says:

    NO Mass. Sermon not in my first language but seemed to be along these lines: Isaiah, Paul and Peter were all called unexpectedly by the Lord. All were acutely aware of their own unworthiness, but promptly obeyed the call.
