The Seriousness Of Our Faith
OCD Sister at Louange de sa Gloire posted a homily by a Fr. Altier on the importance of being serious in our faith. The homily was given in 2001 and is important for the times we live in. The line that struck me was: "Right now, we cannot see much of a difference between those who worship God and those who do not." That line was like cold water in the face! But it is a needed one. It is very difficult at times to live our faith and have it show. We shouldn't look like everyone else; there should be marked differences between those of us who worship God and those who don't.
The other thing that struck me was where Father talks about union with God. It sounds nice, but he is right, there is nothing warm and fuzzy about achieving it.
I shared this link on my sidebar in the Worth a Click box, but felt it needed center stage as well.
Our world is in for tougher times ahead. Our faith is what will see us through to our heavenly home, but we need to take it seriously.Thanks to OCD Sister for posting this homily. Read and share it.
