Fr. Joe Horn’s

Guaranteed Less Boring than the Average Sermon

“Christ didn’t send me to baptize, but to preach the Gospel. I do not fill my sermons with profound words and high-sounding ideas, for fear of diluting the mighty power there is in the simple message of the cross of Christ.”
— St Paul (1 Corinthians 1:17)

“How can I teach your children gentleness,
    And mercy to the weak, and reverence
For life, which, in its weakness or excess,
    Is still a gleam of God’s omnipotence,
When by your laws, your actions, and your speech,
You contradict the very things I teach?”
— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (from “The Birds of Killingsworth”)
