Sermon for the 22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time 2016

The Lord's command that we should take the place the lowest honor, rather than the one of highest honor is first and foremost a natural human command which flows from our human nature more than Christ's salvific message. All those aspects of life which are symbolized by the rich food at the head of table aren't ends in themselves, but rather fruits or effects of the virtues to which Jesus calls us.

This sermon was delivered at St. Edward the Confessor Catholic Church in Tallulah, La on Sunday, August 28, 2016.
