Video – Fr. Angelo Geiger – Homily: The Wise, the Clever, & the Little Children
As Malcolm Muggleridge observed, there's nothing so vulgar or perverse left in human experience for which we cannot fly in some professor from some university to justify it. Said in a more plain fashion, the wise and the clever of this world are skilled in justifying the worst of evils - from contraception to abortion to pornography to same-sex marriage. The learned and clever are poised to take what they want and leave the rest behind, and they delight in fashioning God in their own image.
It is not so with the little children of God. They are willing to have the truth revealed to them; they are willing to be fed directly from the hand of God. They accept God on His terms, not theirs. They assent to Christ's authority and receive the truth as it is, knowing full well that Christ Himself first came into this world and walked in their shoes, as a mere child.
Let's now listen to another wonderful homily by Fr. Angelo.
