Homily, Sunday, August 26
Hey! Do you feel it? I do. What is it that we feel? That's right - it's a sense of oppression. And why do we feel it? I've got two little words for you: Second Reading. Wow! Where did that come from? All of a sudden, we're all about discipline. Now, before we go around thinking that we've suddenly become a bunch of nazis, I'd like you to look around the liturgical interior and tell me what you see. That's right. You see people. People being church. So in other words, ignore the second reading - that was written for different peoples in different times. This is a new age, and just like after Jesus we didn't have to do all that Jewish stuff any more, like mutilating penises and stuff, now in this new age, alot of that displine and law and stuff just doesn't cut it. This is an age where faithwalks and love offerings will get us where we're going. Not to some crazy heaven place, but to real church, real eucharist. The kind of eucharist that you find when you feed a starving person, or when you tell a suffering homosexual that they're not doing anything wrong. It's like Marty says - we've got to SING a new church into being - we've got to JOIN in the song. Are you in the song? Are you singing church?
