    Sermon 575 : Staying With the Lord : 2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

    1/15/2012
    Please click the play button above to listen now.
    When we witness something beautiful, something important, we desire to share it with others, just as St. John did when he said to his disciples, "Behold the Lamb of God" - and just as those disciples did when they spread the good news of the Messiah. We quest to know God, to follow God, but more important is God's quest for us and our willingness to heed his call.

For years I have heard so many insipid commentaries of this passage of John. Fr. Barron's inspired words are a revelation! what a light he has shed on this central message: share the joy and bring others to Christ. Thank you Fr. Barron:once again your words are uplifting and powerful!

Ahhh... staying with the Lord. I'd encourage anyone whose parish etc., offers perpetual adoration... to take him up on his personal invite and visit regularly. You will be re-made from the inside out and, yes, will find him totally irresistable! Father, friend, brother, spouse. Surely! Thanks for these deep-felt words, Fr. Robert!

The “Lamb of God” is what I have been most recently thinking about, meditating on. One could contemplate that forever. I love the Mass. I crave it. That’s where the Eucharist is.

What would I say if the Lord asked me, what do you want, what are you looking for? My first thought was, ‘I want to be inside you. I want to be a part of you, to be absorbed by you, to be one with you.’ That’s what I’d say. That’s what I want.

Oh yes, that question does address at the level of the heart. I hear a question in and of truth. If only we could live that. To live in truth is a way to stay with Him (most especially when we walk out the doors of the Church). It is indeed a life of selfless love. It could be no other. Oh, how we need the Lamb of God… without, we would be separated. Seems there could never be enough gratitude, but, I think, that’s part of it.

The Word became flesh. God with us… manifestation. For me, another infinite contemplation.

Father, you have a beautiful site. How I wish I could have found it twenty years ago! Truthfully I don't think I could speak to the Lord face to face. I would probably hide my face and labor over some sort of food preparation. What I want most is summed up in the prayer before Communion,'Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof,but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.' We spend our entire lives making a dwelling place for Him, however humble and he rewards us with a glorious Temple. Love begets love. John the Baptist points to Christ, Andrew introduces Christ, John the Evangelist is eyewitness to Christ, Peter shepherds the sheep of Christ. All I can do is follow.

Phil Collins and "GENISIS" sing a song, "Follow You, Follow Me". The first words are, "Stay with me, my love I hope you'll always be at my side..." with the chorus of "Follow You". Everytime I hear that song I imagine myself singing to the Lord and the Lord singing to me. And when the youth in JOHN ask Jesus where he is staying, I can imagine a never-ending-song-refrain, of the echoing Love of Jesus. God Speed!

I hope nobody would be offended by my comment. I think the other thing that attracted the two young men, in addition to the person of Jesus, is his Mom, who, like a typical Jewish mom, must have prepared a grand feast for their young guests and immediately adopted them as her own.

Thanks for another great homily Fr. Barron - your talk made me want to share these beautiful Christian Paintings - there also a beautiful one of John baptising Christ. I have commissioned these and hope to begin showing them this year.

I am a young graduate og chemistry in Uganda. I came to know about Fr. Barron on facebook and I read his sermon for this week and it was the best message I got today on my graduation day.
I feel so inspired and motivated.
