Joe

Have to see the whole sermon, but in excerpt what strikes me is this:

"God has suffered and in the Son suffers with us..."

Encouraging. But that stress may easily gloss over what I find I want to tell many friends. Christ suffered BECAUSE OF US as well as the Stalins and Hitlers. Our sins put him there. There are many victims of hatred and injustice, but in the first instance wasn't the cross the result of all our own hatred and the injustice each of us creates? A good friend just suffered through a spouse cheating and wants to see revenge. He sees himself as a victim, and can't see himself as ever doing anything that bad. And he is a weekly Mass attender. This homily seems to potentially, unintentionally encourage that mind set. The ocean of evil is out there, but it is also inside here. I wish that would find more stress in the messages being sounded today.
