No one could know so much & understand so much, if he himself was not living in the Presence. Extremely happy for u father Barron.

Fr. David
I am confused by your references to Zephaniah. The readings for today make no mention of idolatry or God's wrath but rather Zephaniah calls for rejoicing and joy. Help!

A few similar things I've heard:
- we Become what we eat.
- we Become what we contemplate (ewtn)
- the acts we perform; the people we Become (John Paul II)
- we Become what we worship (fr. Barron)

Jesus wants us to Become Love & truth.
Jesus is Love & Truth.

To Fr. David,

Can I say as I understand it:
I think, in this sermon the background is first set up(from the preceding chapters of Zephaniah) & then todays reading of Zephaniah is introduced.

Thanks for an enlightening talk about justice and love. I like how you connect the readings, give appropriate historical background (especially in the first reading) and eventually inspire us to be better Christians. I hope this becomes a template that will be followed by all Catholic churches as it makes the sermon more relevant and informational at the same time.

I've listened to all of your homilies from 2000-mid2004. I listen to your Sunday homilies for this year. You've helped me live a better life, a different life, a different world view. Thank you.

It is a gift from God that one is able to capture the attn of the audience. It takes much preparation as well as educational and life experiences to make the sermons/homilies become incarnate. Most important of all, it takes much much praying and fasting to put soul and spirit into the talk. This is why Fr. Barron's talk is operated by the Holy Spirit himself which burns people's hearts with love for the one who is Love.
