Was there a good point made in the sermon you heard at the Mass that fulfilled your Sunday Obligation? What was it?
There are a lot of people who don’t get many good points in the sermons they must endure.
For my part, where I am we are beset with a winter storm. Hence, I – with regret – asked our schola to do psalm tones for the Gradual and Tract and I moved things along quickly. People drive from some distance for that Mass, and I wanted to get them back on the road before conditions got any worse. As it is, I’ve put off a drive to Chicago until the storm passes.
I left out several points, including the meaning of the Pre-Lent Sundays (there’s always next week) and what St. Gregory the Great did with the Gospel reading back in the 7th c. when he preached on it for Septuagesima Sunday at the Roman Station – the “Gesimas” have them – of St. Lawrence outside-the-walls. The catechumens were there and he really stuck his heels into the floorboards. Alas.
