    Sermon 514 : What Remains? : 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

    Please click the play button above to listen now.
    All things pass away. Political and religious institutions, the family, bodily health; nothing lasts. Everything dies. So often we seek our fulfillment and salvation in these things. But Christ is telling us not to. He is telling us to seek the one thing that will last: Himself. So long as we cling to Him will our lives be secure. He is the rock of our salvation.

Fr Barron is definitely a prophet in our modern times. His words are melodious and captivating. I am grateful that he and us are part of the mystical body of Christ.

I remember so well when about 48 years ago and I had found Jesus Christ in an instant on a railway train going up to work in London.
I knew even then that I had found a Truth that would take over my life and that I would never be the same again.
My dear parents who had already lost one son in a sailing accident knew that now they had lost me too.
They kept telling me that like the Rock of Gibraltar, they would always be there to welcome me home and back to common sense.
They died within one month of each other. First my mum to a heart attack and then a month later my dad from progressing skin cancer that eventually invaded his whole body as his immune system broke down in old age.
We did visit our old property which had been sold and we spent one night living in our camper with the new owners permission.
As I slept listening to a mournful Owl hooting away in the darkness, I realised just how temporary our short lives are.
No Rock of Gibraltar here......BUT there is a Rock which will even last longer than that very impressive rock which stands as a bastion at the entrance of the Mediterranean, THE ROCK JESUS CHRIST PRESERVED FOR US IN ITS FULLNESS BY THE HOLY ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH...
God bless you Father Bob for reminding us again and again by your life changing reflections, that Only God remains for ever.

This was another fine sermon.

Queston: I don't see the Bible texts linked here, as in the past. I like to read them prior to, or along with, his sermon. Is there somewhere I could find those links?

Thanks, Fr. Barron.
Your words, the words of the gospel hit home for me at this time in my life. I have lost my husband, my family is not close. I am seeing people, places and things pass away. And it causes me to rely on our Lord all the more. He will never abandon me. Thanks

I remember when I was a boy i could not think that anybody can beat my father, but death has taken him away. Everything will pass apart the word of the Lord.
