Homily 2019 01 21 Respect Life! Yikes!

visitation from peregabrielcom

We had a big crowd for the closing day of the novena sponsored by the Knights of Columbus. At the end, Holy Mass was offered for a very specific intention, that respect for life would increase, respect for life from natural conception to natural death. A homily, a sermon actually, was encouraged. It’s a bit longish, but has a certain ferocity about it. It’s a bit of a fright when the role Satan has had in the culture of death is described. It’s a bit of a fright when the provenance of the entitlement mentality gripping the nation is presented. Yikes!

There are a thousand stories to recount, and there’s so very much more to say on any and every level, but you can’t say everything in one homily.

Homily 2018 11 22 I’m thankful for…

squanto thanksgiving

  • I’m thankful that the Father sent the Son. I’m thankful for being forgiven.
  • I’m thankful for the prayers people say for me. I’m thankful for cloistered nuns who have teamed up with Jesus to save my soul.
  • I’m thankful for… well… here’s today’s homily on this Thanksgiving Day:

What are you thankful for?

=========

Just to say, this is perhaps a bit of a rough homily for Thanksgiving in that I go on the attack of those who are ever so entitled, who think they are self-sufficient, who are therefore bitter on the one hand and self-righteous on the other hand. An attack! On Thanksgiving. And for the wherewithal to do that I also give thanks. ;-)
