    Sermon 509 : Naaman the Syrian : 28th Sunday in Ordinary Tim

    Please click the play button above to listen now.
    From the worldly perspective, the worst thing a powerful person can do is admit his/her weaknesses to others. If done so, the person loses his/her position of power. Naaman the Syrian, a man of power, is an example of humility. He does not let embarrassment stand in the way of admitting to his weakness. By doing so, he is healed and offers right praise to God. Like Naaman, admitting one's weaknesses is the first step to proper worship.

Not only have I listened to and reflected on an extremely interesting Bible Study with great insight into a very well known passage from 2nd Kings about Field Marshall Naaman and his fight with Leprosy, but also how Abraham Lincoln, Winston Churchill, FDR, and Sir Lawrence Olivier, of recent History, to name a few had to combat serious handicaps of depression and stage fright etc.
I am not sure if those modern famous men were able to find the Lord and end up worshipping him like Naaman did..Let's hope so...
All that to say......
We are so blessed to be able to learn on so many levels from such a talented teacher and speaker as our own Father Barron.

Dear Fr Barron,
Greetings from India. Along with you and Prophet Elisha, I shall lead people follow the journey of Namaan to healing, and worship of the God who loves us beyond our own imagination. God speed you Fr Barron. Pray for us too as we try spreading God's word.

Greetings from Ireland. Fr Barron, your sermons on the Word of God really helps me to prepare for Sunday Mass. I'm a Minister of the Word in my local Church and listening to you is a must. Praise God for you and the healing in my own life

I'm a lot like Naaman--seeking healing but still wanting to do things my way. Thanks for this invitation to let God be God in my life.
