Was there a good point or two in the sermon which you heard at your Mass in fulfillment of your Sunday obligation? Let us know.
For my part, I connected the Gospel parable of the Pharisee and the Publican praying in the Temple, what our attitude in prayer should be, and what the priest expresses in the prayers of the Offertory in the Traditional Latin Mass, so very attenuated in the Novus Ordo.
These days our sermons are being recorded and put out there, so, here it is!
In the wake of the Pew Research about the lack of Faith of Catholics, I figure I will add a little more liturgical catechesis to my time at the pulpit. It is good to know what’s going on up there. Hence, today’s look at the Offertory, especially from the priest’s perspective.
BTW… we had a Solemn Mass with a deacon ordained in May. He did a good job.
