Your Sunday Sermon Notes: 4th Sunday after Easter (5th Sunday of, 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 your Mass of obligation for the 4th Sunday of Easter?

Tell about attendance especially for the Traditional Latin Mass.  I hear that it is growing.  Of COURSE.

Any local changes or (hopefully good) news?

I have some written remarks about the TLM Mass for this Sunday – HERE

    the rector of the Cathedral outdid himself.

    he started with the image of gardens and connected Eden with Gethsemane, the sepulchre, and the Magdalene’s mistaking the risen Lord for a gardener. he read a brief excerpt of the Song of Songs, describing how it depicts the Lord’s love for each human being – showing it as a love story in a garden.

    he then recalled an event he attended as a seminarian where His Holiness Benedict XVI spoke. The Holy Father exhorted the men present that three things were essential for them to be an image of Christ to the world: humility, purity, and charity.

    he spoke at some length about purity, including both purity as having a singular purpose and that sins against bodily purity correlate highly with sins against charity. the most forceful and direct reference i’ve heard about this topic in any homily.

    he went on to clarify the Catholic understanding of charity: loving God above all else and letting all other loves be ordered to that prime love. he described how each of the sacraments fits in to this.

    he ended by saying (as close as i can recall) “the greatest adventure any person can have is to fall in love with the God who already is in love with you”.
