Doctrine of Grace

Sermon From
16th Sunday After Pentecost 2013
The Collect for this Mass is short but important because it is praying for grace.  What is grace?  How does it work?  Why does God continue to give us grace?  All these questions and more are answered and explained in this veritable tract on Grace which includes actual, sanctifying and cooperating grace.  This week’s feast of the Holy Name of Mary was the result of thanksgiving for her saving intercession in the battle of Vienna which preserved Christendom.  The account of this inspiring story is given to help appreciate how serious was the crisis and the power of the Blessed Mother.  Finally, today’s Gospel story of the cure of the dropsical man follows upon the recording of Our Lord’s table talk as an invited Guest.  After the miracle Jesus taught how simplicity of soul counters Phariseeism.
