Was there a good point made in the sermon during your Mass of Sunday obligation? Let us know.
UPDATE 29 July
Today I read a terrific piece at Crisis by Fr. George Rutler about Notre-Dame in Paris Do go there and savor it.
Here’s a hint to your reading. Rutler mentions feckless bishops who, today, suffer from the same affliction of bishops even in the ancient Church: “Laodicean mediocrity”.
This is a reference to Revelations 3 and the lukewarm members of that ancient community. In Revelation, John writes to seven Churches. Laodicea is the last. Ironically “Laodicea” is derived from “rights of the people”. In other words, they do their will, not God’s. They are not fervid with love of God, but lukewarm. Laodicea is a byword for mediocrity.
What will Christ do with such people? He will “spew” them from His mouth. In the Douay rendering, He will “vomit” them. Rev 3:16.
Why do I bring up Rutler and this business of Laodicea under a post about Sunday sermons?
Coincidently, I mentioned this very verse during my Sunday sermon.
Frankly, my sermon got away from me on Sunday. I was going to tie together all the chants of the Mass but… well… I digressed. It happens. I’ll show you what happens when I get off track. Sadly, sometimes priests digress and wind up preaching more than one homily. Sunday… guilty as charged.
