Feb 01 – Homily – Fr Louis Maximilian: God Doesn’t Do Damage Control
Homily #140201n ( 13min) Play - Fr. Louis Maximilian shows that King David's repentance after the adultery with Bathsheba and murder of Uriah is an example of the need for repentance, and also that sin incurs punishment, even when it is forgiven. Father ties this in with the message of Fatima and the Five First Saturdays and highlights the need for us to repent from all of our sins, venial and mortal. One of the results of sin is spiritual blindness, and the First Saturdays are a lifeline to bring us to acknowledge our sins, and then to do penance for them. Finally, he reminds us that God doesn't do "damage control", but heals. Let us ask Our Lady for the strength to bear , crying out with David, "Have mercy on me, O God, according to thy great mercy."
