Sermon From The
11th Sunday After Pentecost 2013
Today’s announcements have details about the upcoming confirmations. Also, there is an instruction on Holy Communion and the dispositions necessary for its reception and how wrong it is to assume what the state of soul is for a non-communicant. We have many beautiful feasts this week and we learn about St. Dominic, Our Lady of the Snows, the Transfiguration, St. John Vianney, the 14 Holy Helpers, St. Lawrence and St. Philomena. Finally, we are reminded that, unlike non-Catholics, our belief, as prayed in the Act of Faith, is based on God Who can neither deceive nor be deceived. This is supernatural faith. Others believe in their own study of the Bible etc. and that is only natural faith.
