Your Sunday Sermon Notes: Resumed 6th Sunday after Epiphany (33rd Ordinary – N.O.)

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

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

What was attendance like?

Tell about attendance especially for the Traditional Latin Mass.  I was getting reports that it is way up.

Any local changes or news?

For those of you who regularly viewed my live-streamed daily Masses – with their fervorini – for over a year, you might drop me a line.  There are developments.

I have some written remarks about the TLM – HERE “Whatever Tribulation is on the Horizon, Be of Good Cheer!”

And there’s this.

  2. Gal. 2.19 says:

    Fr. was able to dovetail the parable of the mustard seed into an update on the TLM status in the diocese after TC. Having said the TLM here for 35 years, he has, like the parable seen the community grow from a little seed into a large tree. Fr. was very keen to mention that the situation of the TLM possibly causing division (whether true or not) in other dioceses is absolutely not occurring here, and that following a survey of priests, their overall view toward the TLM faithful trends positively. He mentioned that after several meetings with our bishop recently, there is the consideration of whether to essentially leave the two communities that offer the TLM alone, or to possibly use an upcoming “parish restructuring” to create a merged TLM community as part of a “family of parishes”.

    High Mass at Mater Misericordia in Phoenix. The choir, plus soloists and strings, performed Mozart’s Missa Brevis. It was the first Mass at Mater for the most recently ordained priest from this parish. The tiny church was packed, the really tiny choir loft was packed and everything was simply beautiful and joyful.

  4. Gregg the Obscure says:

    Old school clarity on the four last things plus the elements of mortal sin and that ONLY Holy Mother Church can decide what constitutes grave matter.

  5. Dave P. says:

    Finally heard our new Canon preach. A very good homily on the mustard seed and growth in faith. After High Mass, we held a ceremony honoring the veterans of St. Stanislaus, including Abbe George Baird (USMC). Very nicely done.

    One of the most crowded 8:00 am low masses in recent memory at our TLM parish in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis. Continue to see additional new attendees – mostly young families with lots of children in tow. Typically strong sermon from our FSSP pastor. So grateful for the continued opportunity to celebrate the EF with the ongoing permission of our Archbishop.

  7. Suburbanbanshee says:

    A short homily on the Second Coming, and how it’s a real thing that people should be thinking about. “Stay awake.” Don’t assume that everybody is the Antichrist, but pay attention and live like the world could end tomorrow.

    Mentioned how the church in Jerusalem all escaped out of Jerusalem before the Romans killed everyone, because they paid attention to the signs, and how Josephus the historian talks about how, yes, there were tons of signs before Jerusalem fell.

    Good attendance by college kids and all ages, including little kids.

    (BTW, I was just reading Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors, and it talked about how Sprague at Pearl Harbor was commanding a little ship that was one of the few that didn’t get hit by the Japanese (which was good, because it was carrying a load of torpedos). He had been conducting drills with his crew just the day before, was unsatisfied by their performance, and uncharacteristically yelled at them, saying, “We’re not prepared! And for all we know, the Japanese could attack tomorrow!”

    So ironically, when the Japanese did attack the next day, his guys were the only ones prepared well enough to start shooting down planes almost right away.

    Novus Ordo – primarily on the Four Last Things
