I am Herod.

Notes from Father’s Sermon yesterday.
1. We like to compare ourselves to shepherds and magi
2. We know where the messiah is to be born, we have a wealth of patristic commentary, we are surrounded by support for our faith yet we most often decide to act in a most unfaithful way.
3. We are more like Herod.
4. It is our simple daily choices that make it so.
5. We have a standard of living in America higher than Herod could imagine… But we fail in charity.
6. Being mindful on a moment to moment basis of our actions and choices in light of our faith is what is needed.
