Short Catholic Homilies: Joy in God’s Service

And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. Luke 1:47

Short Catholic Sermon : Joy in Gods Service

Editors Reflection :  Its easy to be grim in a world so afflicted with sin.  Discouragement comes when we fall from temptation and fear when we see how little progress we have made in possessing that true Charity and virtue which our Lord Jesus Christ has demanded of us.

Yet, because of the Resurrection, the knowledge of Gods Mercy, the hope that every new firm resolution to avoid sin and foster virtue should bring an abundance of Holy Joy and peace.

Let us sing “Alleluia” which means “Praise the Lord!” To sing it properly, we must strip our hearts of our old selves and put on our new self which is Jesus Christ. To him let us sing forever, “Alleluia!” St Paul of the Cross

This short Traditional Catholic Sermon reminds us of our duty to be thankful and joyful in our lives, but most especially in our spiritual duties.

For as God’s benefits are real and great, so our thanks and joy should be in them and correspond to them. Religion, being our highest duty, should be and can be our highest pleasure.   Transcript
