Teaching by example
The quality or value of a sermon is not only measured by the effect it has on the lives of those who hear it, but also in the example of the life of the one delivering it. The Gospel passages chosen for these Sundays before Lent continue with Matthew's version of what is universally called "the sermon on the mount." This is the heart of the Gospel, the Good News of Jesus. This is Jesus the Teacher. This is the New Sinai, the NEW Commandment This is the summary of all that it means to be Christian and Catholic.
Things fall apart
Chris McDonnell CT Friday 17th 2017.
One of W B Yeats’ most celebrated poems, ‘The Second Coming’, has these lines in the opening stanza:
‘…Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.’
It was written in 1919, in the aftermath of the Great War, when the privation and suffering of that conflict were still vividly fresh in the life experience of countless millions of people across the torn continent of Europe.
There is something of unremitting despair in that first line, the dissolving of certainty, the break-up of once cherished options where the furniture of lives, once secure, has been shattered by circumstance.
