Remember back when I created a YouTube channel and promised you lots of exciting content?
…remember how I never promised when said exciting content would be delivered?
Well, here’s some of it now. Since I have a bunch of churches, and the pandemic makes it more difficult for you to get to them, allow me to try and bring them to you. This is Episode 1 of Church Tours.
I considered not posting this, but figured I might as well, since it’s already out there. I didn’t particularly like this homily. I know, I say that about almost every homily I give, but it is what it is. It went pretty well the night before, I thought, but for whatever reason, I felt very uncomfortable while I was preaching on Sunday. Don’t know why. But we all survived, and as far as I know, no one walked out. Next week will hopefully be better.
For those that didn’t catch it live, here’s today’s Mass. The Gospel begins at the 19:46 mark; the homily at the 21:40 mark. The poem that I try to make use of is t.s. eliot’s The Journey of the Magi, and the recording of him reading (reciting?) that particular piece is below the Mass.
As usual, I apologize for the lack of posts recently, but Advent/Christmas is one of our busier seasons, pandemic or no. I do have some content planned for the year ahead, as long as my schedule permits. (More accurately, as long as I manage my time appropriately and exercise some self-discipline.)
I had the 11 AM Mass this morning for today’s Solemnity, so I thought I’d share that here. I know there’s probably a way I could download the entire video and chop it so it’s just the homily, but I haven’t learned how to do that yet, so I’ll just share the whole thing with you.
Oh, and a programming alert: I have the 11 this Sunday as well, which is also on the livestream.
You ever have a thought i your head that you can’t seem to properly express in words? That’s how I feel today. Not because I have anything necessarily profound to say, just because it’s Monday and all the synapses aren’t firing. Nevertheless, I managed to ramble for a few minutes about today’s feast. And, at the very least, there’s a couple photos of the Lateran Basilica here for your enjoyment, too.
