Here is the Sermon for the 21st Sunday in Ordinary time, preached by Fr. Jeffrey Keyes, 5:30 pm Mass at St. Eugene Cathedral
Fifty nine percent (59%) of the sophomores in my classes are not baptized and do not go to Church. So, In my scripture lesson I make it a requirement that they avail themselves of opportunities to "hear", not just read the word of God. Well, If they do not go to Church, where shall they hear?
So, on my blog, instead of just posting the audio of my homilies, I will also read the Gospel.
Just know that the Domain where this blog exists is not too friendly to audio files. You may come back to the post a year later and click on a post. It will be an audio file, but it will not be a the audio file it says it is. It will be some other audio file that has little relationship to the post. I have complained to Weebly many times, but they cannot recognize the problem, and they cannot fix it. Weebly is, I believe, located in San Francisco. So there may be an anti-catholic bias that may be at the root of the problem.
This domain's (Weebly) administrators know nothing about audio, and they are no help if the link leads to something else. Well, rest assured that in a years's time this link will link to something else and there is nothing they seem to know about it. So if you want to save this audio, save it now.
Save this audio now. In a year you can click on this and it will be another audio. Weebly sucks on Audio.
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.
Omnia Christus Est Nobis
Christ is everything for us!
