Ever Made a Stupid Sacrifice?

Sacrifice something higher for what is lower? Jepthah did it. Pharoah, Essau, and the guys that rejected the kings feast did it too - stupid. Don't be stupid. Make the intelligent sacrifice of what is lesser for what is greater.

Listen to my homily for today:

If you have trouble listening to this click here.

Know that at the end of your life you will be consoled by how many times you worthily received Jesus in holy communion. Don't be afraid to receive the King frequently and intensely. You won't regret it. Be careful however of making the stupid sacrifice of receiving him unworthily. Examine your heart before hand and if you need to, go to confession. Otherwise what would be a sacrifice becomes a sacrilege.

Our Blessed Mother made the most pleasing sacrifice to God by offering her Son in union with the Eternal Father. May her prayers help us to make a pleasing sacrifice to the Lord our God.
