Why would short sermons that commenced over a century ago still be worthwhile to hear today? To use an old cliche, “the more things change the more they stay the same”. The Apostolic Faith of our Fathers has been passed down to us and as such what holds true to previous generations holds true to us.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church says there are two kinds of presumption. “Either man presumes upon his own capacities, (hoping to be able to save himself without help from on high), or he presumes upon God’s almighty power or his mercy (hoping to obtain his forgiveness without conversion and glory without merit).” CCC 2092 This sermon addresses the second type of presumption and preaches specifically on the line of Scripture “unless you have believed in vain” (1 Corinthians 15: 2).
