32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Posted on

Originally delivered on November 8, 1992


Readings: Maccabees 7:1-2, 9-14; Thessalonians 2:16 -3:5; Luke 20:27-38 or 20-27 , 34-38


How does our conscience shape our actions? Are we, like the seven sons and their mother from the Book of Maccabees, willing to die for what we believe?  In today’s homily, we are reminded that we may have to take a stand for something which will become irrelevant at a later date.  Nonetheless, in the moment, we are called to follow our conscience.  We should pray dearly and act sincerely based on what our conscience tells us. On the issues of women priests, abortion, sexual orientation, divorce, and our economic systems, we must pray and ultimately follow our conscience.

    Frank do you recall a sermon, I believe it was in the springtime, which Jim began with the following statement: “I could never be a Jew.” And went on to explain what he meant. Thanks. Bob Rohde

      Unfortunately, I don’t recall this homily, but I’ve listened to hundreds! If I come across it, I will let you know!
