    Thank you, George

    “Jesus is religion incarnate. Religion is a virtue of justice; the justice is rendering to God the Father, the obedience to which God the Father is due.”

    Thank you so much for this. It is concise and simple to understand. It is a beautiful way to answer/correct an erroneous understanding of religion.

    I shudder to think that rejection of religion* is tantamount to rejection of Jesus.

    * I wanted to write “…rejection of religion (properly understood) is tantamount to…” but thought better of it. My thinking about using the phrase “properly understood” was that an ignorant rejection of religion might be venial in nature, while an informed (John 9:41) rejection is mortal. But I would like to be corrected by you if there is a deficiency/confusion in my thinking before giving assent to this idea, which had just occurred to me. Your guidance would be most appreciated.

    “one who listens”

    Wow, a light just came on in my soul. How many times is God described as listening/hearing? communicate and communion.

    This is such a rich homily- I cannot help re-listening to portions over and over again. The Holy Spirit has you on fire, for once 😉
