Your Sunday Sermon notes – 5th Sunday after Easter (N.O. 6th of Easter) 2021

Was there a GOOD point made in the sermon you heard at the Mass for your Sunday (obligation or none), either live or on the internet? Let us know what it was.

Too many people today are without good, strong preaching, to the detriment of all. Share the good stuff.

Also, are your churches opening up? What was attendance like?


If you are involved with preparing coffee and donuts after Mass (yes, this is returning) consider using Mystic Monk Coffee.  Use my link. You help the monks, you help yourselves, you help me.  A pretty good deal.

    Kindly old priest spoke about the Eucharist as our Lord’s ultimate gift of Himself to Christians in order that Christians may give of themselves to their neighbors. To underscore the point, both before and after Mass i was approached by (the same) very animated and disturbed homeless woman.

    for reasons not worth mentioning here i attended 1230 instead of my customary 1030. attendance was about 100 folks, where fire code allows 800. dispensation from Sunday obligation only lasts one more week here.

    The bad news is that I missed all the readings and half the homily, which I can look up later, and I think it was a “rerun” anyway. The good news is that I was in Confession at the time. They run Confessions all through Mass if they have a priest available and there is a specially constructed, private, socially-distanced option! Our whole family went today, and the peace and enhanced kindness in our household is the best Mother’s Day gift. The line was pretty long. Priest was chatty, but gave good advice.

    Away from our home parish, we attended the Melkite Divine Liturgy offered at our “home away from home”. The Gospel was the healing of the man born blind. God uses physical things, in this case mud, spittle, water. This is a prefiguring of the sacraments, the water of baptism, the oils of chrismation, etc. Through these graces we too who are “born blind” can be enabled to “see”.
    Although I love the Traditional Latin Mass I do find the Divine Liturgy with its chanting, incense,the repetitions constantly praising God a wonderful way of adoration and praise which really emphasizes how great God is and how little we are, not the Jesus is our buddy we get so much today.

    The 7:30 am NO Low Mass I attend regularly was full. People sat in the choir loft. Most wear masks and social distancing isn’t possible (as it says in the bulletin “where your mask, we cannot guarantee social distancing”). Thankful for the 89 year old retired priest who lives with our priest and helps ease his burden. We actually have 2 retired priests along with our parish priest to serve two parishes. We really need vocations in SE Ohio.
