At that time, Jesus spoke this parable to some who trusted in themselves as being just and despised others. Two men went up to the temple to pray, the one a Pharisee and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and began to pray thus within himself: ‘O God, I thank You that I am not like the rest of men, robbers, dishonest, adulterers, or even like this publican. I fast twice a week; I pay tithes of all that I possess.’ But the publican, standing afar off, would not so much as lift up his eyes to heaven, but kept striking his breast, saying, ‘O God, be merciful to me the sinner!’ I tell you, this man went back to his home justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself shall be humbled, and he who humbles himself shall be exalted.
Homily, Auugst 6, 2017, EF Mass, St. Eugene Cathedral. ( In a year this weebly website will have no idea where to find this homily)
Every Year the Church Music Association of America holds its annual Colloquium, This year in St. Paul, Minnesota. As always it was a delight to be among so many friends and to participate in so many beautiful liturgies. Next year it is in Chicago.
I am certainly grateful to Charles Cole for the beautiful Pictures.
It was a fitting end to this Roman Pilgrimage. Friday's Mass was a votive of the Passion of the Lord. Then the two companions for the Journey, Fr. Uy and Fr. Carter arrived and we were picked up by our driver, Andrea. A little over two hours later we were on the other side of Italy and approaching Lanciano, the home of the first Eucharistic miracle in the 9th century. The three of us spent a bit over an hour in prayer before the Eucharist, and then it was time for lunch. After pranzo we headed for Manoppello. Again it was time for prayer. It was really a blessed day.
Today will be a day of packing and preparation for the Journey to the States which begins very early tomorrow morning. Pray that I can get to St. Paul without a hitch or delay.
