Very good. An uplifting, positive, encouraging homily. AXIOS!
Very well said. Thank you Father John
This homily actually touches on an important concept. Our paths may be, (and, in fact, are), very different, but your message here is well-formed and can be a take-away to many, if not all people of whatever 'faith.' Thank you. -ed
How Awesome!!! Thanks Father for such a great homily. The series of books by JRR Tolkien have such hidden meanings. They are a great way for Catholics to enjoy a good story but at the same time search out the hidden Catholicity of his tales. Thanks for this analogy between the Hobbit and Bethlehem. Your well thought out words speak to many hearts...stay in the light of Christ and keep on your journey for our Lord for the Salvation of Souls. God Bless
