Gratitude: The Unknown Virtue

Sermon From
13th Sunday After Pentecost 2014
With the approach of the feast of Our Lady of Sorrows we are reminded of Christ’s final gift to us from the Cross.  As we prepare to resume catechism classes it is important for parents to realize their serious obligation to train their children for heaven.  Our Lady’s 30 days are ending soon so we need fervor this week.  In the Gospel we learn the power of faith in the healing of the lepers but it is supernatural faith which is a theological virtue and can only be given by God.  Christ also teaches us about a part of the virtue of justice which few appreciate and even less practice and that is being thankful to God for the favors He grants us and showing gratitude to others for their kindness and charity towards us.
