Sundæ Sermon Notes: 19th Sunday (OT) / Clare of Assisi

The permanent deacon made reference to the recent Powerball excitement and contrasted the remote chance of hitting the lottery with the much more certain chance of gaining the Kingdom of Heaven by faith in action. He stressed the need for daily prayer, worship in the Sacred Liturgy and the works of mercy. He then addressed St Paul’s definition of faith and admitted that it is easier to believe in what is tangible as opposed to the intangible things of God. He suggested we pray for the gift of faith.

Suitably enough, I recognized two people in the congregation today who are named Clare.
