Homily 2018 05 24 Jesus’ Hard sayings

mangy-donkey

Jesus’ “hard sayings” as I’ve always heard them called, just need a bit of reason so that we can see the brilliance of the truths of the faith behind them. But instead we run to dismissiveness or literalness to escape the beauty of the Gospel. No need for that. Just a bit of God-given reason is needed. Donkeys to the rescue!

    Very good homily, and amusing in sarcastic way ( looking up root of sarcasm…)

    God forbid, that we blame our free will for our sin.

    So, donkeys don’t trust their Master, at least not right “out of the box”, eh? Good to know, understanding + intelligence is good.

    “God forbid, that we blame our free will for our sin.”

    Oh, I think my sarcasm detector just maxed out.

    Proper reasoning leans much on a well-formed conscience.
