The only-begotten son of a widowed mother in Nain raised from the dead by Jesus is the Gospel for the 15th Sunday after Pentecost in the liturgical calendar of the Traditional Mass. The readings were done in Latin at the altar of Sacrifice, translations were read after that. Then the homily. Sorry for the pauses. I get emotional in my old age.
Hint: this post should have been a flower for the Immaculate Conception. This is not my usual rant. As I explain at the end, sometimes it’s just good to behold the goodness and kindness of Jesus. I learn while I preach. The analogy with Jesus’ good mother got me in the heart, which jumped into my throat and got me choked up.
I love all the signs of life in the growing congregation, more young families than ever.
