Previously Unpublished Sermon

Niceness vs. Sanctity

Conference On The
1st Friday June 2014, St. Norbert

Melchisedech was a priest, prophet and king so his life is a perfect foreshadowing of Christ.  The only record in the Old Testament of a sacrifice of bread and wine was offered by him.  St. Norbert lived a sinful life far from God but miraculously converted.  This saint is a beautiful example of great generosity of soul.  Saints are not “nice.”  We can be very misled by judging souls by externals.  It is not the niceness of a person and not even his knowledge that determines the sanctity of his soul.  It is the love of God which makes the difference.
