Lessons in Rigidity: Call of St. Matthew – Jul 02 – Homily – Fr Terrance

Views 171


 

Fr Terrance gives the homily at Bloomington, IN on Jul 02, 2021, on how the calling of Matthew and the arrival of the Pharisees give a lesson on how rigidity is quite common in a religious setting and is related to scrupulosity and is even based on legitimate religious sentiments. However, we must be active in avoid falling into this extreme of being too accusatory, which is Satan's favorite tactic. Instead, we should extend hope, mercy, and compassion to sinners who may become great saints.

Ave Maria!
