Whitsunday sermon June 9th Fr. Michael Cawthon

Sermon Whitsunday (Pentecost) As the law, / given 50 days after their Exodus from Egypt brought together the twelve tribes of Israel under a common moral standard - a law, thus this day we celebrate the spirit’s coming, 50 days after the resurrection of Jesus Christ, to the twelve Apostles to guide Christ’s Church as He has ascended. The Apostles, worn out by the peaks and valleys, of being with and seeing Christ, to being without Him, only for Him to return again… But it appears that they were no longer miserable and defeated as they had been before… for [...]

Sermon Sunday after Ascension June 2 2019

Sunday after Ascension 2019 I have borrowed from a sermon from St. Leo the Great, written around 1,500 years ago  (http://www.newadvent.org/fathers/360374.htm); and yet, it is still applicable to Christians today. (St. Leo the Great, also known as Pope Saint Leo I, was the first pope to be given the title "the Great."He became a Deacon of the Church by 431 and died 461.)   I: A foretaste of the early church’s beliefs and thoughts. The Ascension of Christ completes our faith in Him, who was God as well as man. The mystery of our salvation, which the Creator of the [...]

Ascension Day

Ascension Day Sermon from May 30 2019 The statement in the Creeds that Christ “ascended into heaven” is based primarily upon Acts I : 1-9 where, after 40 days of appearances, the Risen Lord speaks to the Apostles about the coming of the Holy Ghost and the Church’s mission, and is taken up in a cloud.   For Christians the Ascension marks the solemn close of the post-Resurrection appearances, and signifies the rule of Christ in the present, (in I Cor. 15:25 we read “For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet”.) And in Ps [...]
