Homily 2018 09 12 Holy Name of Mary

elijah mount carmel foot sea

Silly me. When I was living for a little while above the cave of Elijah on Mount Carmel, I went outside and asked my guardian angel to show me a cloud in the shape of a foot (crushing the serpent, as in Genesis) arising out of the sea from which a rain storm would come (as with Elijah). My guardian angel has fun with me.

Did you know that Mary has two names? Well, three, at least.

  • “The Woman” as in Genesis 3:15, Gospel of John, etc
  • Mary – Miryam – Bitter Sea
  • The one who perfectly continues to stand perfectly transformed in grace from the time when – in context of Luke 1 – she was called to the be Virgin Mother of God, from all eternity, and that coming home at the first moment of her conception.

I realize I haven’t put up any homilies for a while, but I figure that if Pope Francis can give homilies over in Santa Marta the way he does, then I can give homilies over here in the beyonds of the peripheries.

    Good to hear your voice and to hear about our Mother, The Immaculate Conception – so many people get that confused. Anyways, I am on the 29th day of a 54 day Rosary novena and am glad to be in the “thanksgiving” part now as we await this hurricane. I am sad to hear expected rainfall in the mountains could be 20″….but I hope we all remember Whose boat we are in.
    Take care & God Bless!
