    Sermon 499 : To Have and To Be : 18th Sunday in Ordinary Time

    Please click the play button above to listen now.
    Maturity comes in facing the reality of death and the transient nature of the world. In this regard, the Book of Ecclesiastes is full of wisdom: "Vanity of vanities, all is vanity"; Everyone who thinks they are going to find their happiness in possessing the goods of the world will eventually have to face the truth that they will not. All passes away. Therefore, spend your time building a good spiritual disposition for you never know when your life will be demanded of you. My advice: devote yourself to love.

When I was telling my husband about this week's sermon his first (on the nose) comment was, "boy Fr. Barron's talking to Americans"

On this morning of the 3rd of August 2010 I can say how much I appreciate this WORD on FIRE for today. This really helps me to try with all my and His might to stay on course.
Please send the URL for this amazing and timely Word whether you are old like me or young like you, to send this to all the people you know.
Actually we are all old.
We can all die at a moments notice, today, tomorrow or sometime in the near or slightly more distant future.

Listening to this broadcast this morning the 3rd of August with Irmgard before all the others wake up, I just believe and feel so amazed and happy and challenged from this latest Podcast from Father Robert Barron.
This is a very timely reminder about how totally pointless life is without a deep faith and a deep personal relationship with our Creator.
It is not what you have that matters but what you are.
12 minutes of sheer bliss, heaven, challenge, encouragement and Bible teaching from a very special servant of God who has been sent to us all at this particularly trying moment in History. This man is a gift from God to us all.
You can find a very wide range of topics which will help to build you up in the Faith and in particular the Way of Love for God is Love as he so consistently points out.
Please listen and then pass it on and you will be blessed for spreading the Word of God.
