Peace: Our Reward For Virtue

4th Sunday after Pentecost

Father first reminds us of the wonderful Feasts on the calendar this week, particularly that of St. Anthony – called the Wonder Worker because of his tremendous impact on the Church after his relatively short life on earth.  Subsequently, Father turns to the readings for today’s Mass and concentrates on the theme “virtue is its own reward.”  He mentions not only virtue in a generic sense but supernatural virtue, both of which have their own rewards.  Supernatural virtue, however, has as its reward “conscience” which ever impels us to the good despite our attempts to deny its impact on our lives.  It may, in fact, be the driving force which leads us to repentance and eternal happiness in Heaven.  It is, indeed, a gift from God.
