Time Of Hope

Sermon From
15th Sunday After Pentecost 2014
This week we have the Ember days which are of apostolic origin and beneficial to our spiritual life.  The season of Pentecost inspires us with confidence of being saved one day if we persevere in praying always so God will hear us.  The Gospel account shows the unspoken cry of the Widow of Naim moving Jesus to restore her son to life.  Our Holy Mother the Church is also in constant prayer for her children which moves the Divine Spouse to save us from the spiritual death of sin.  This continual prayer in the Church is through the liturgy and the Divine Office.  St. Augustine’s commentary for today is heartfelt as he recalls his own widow mother’s prayers that saved him from hell.  We think of our Mother of Sorrows who does the same for us.
