Sacrifice Is Christian

Sermon From The
5th Sunday after Easter 2014
✟Father Violette
Just as the Church converted the pagan temple of the Pantheon into a Catholic church, she frequently takes what is pagan or secular and “baptizes” it into something Christian.  We could see something similar in the secular holiday of Memorial Day because a soldier’s sacrifice is at its core something Christian.  Knowing the Faith is not enough for us.  We know from St. James that Faith without works is dead, so we should strive to practice virtue, especially when it is difficult.
