Sexagesima Sunday 2021
Saints this week are our friends like St. Apollonia. The Liturgy is our ordinary means of sanctification and reception of sacramentals is a practical aspect of this. St. Paul is the dominant character during this season of Septuagesima and tells in the Epistle of all he has sacrificed in fulfilling Our Lord’s prophecy about his suffering for the Name of Jesus. The Gospel shows the Word of God gently warning all to receive Him well and thereby receive a hundredfold. Finally, we need to follow Catholic principles in our daily lives and imitate the Catholic Supreme Court justice and not the famous author who wrote that lying is permitted if done for the sake of the nation.
