A good sermon

This morning my wife and I attended a wonderfully vibrant Roman Catholic mass. We were on the edge of our seats as the ageing priest delivered a gripping sermon about human freedom and dignity in relation to medical ethics – one of the most authentically contemporary sermons I’ve ever heard.

Above all, I was struck by the preacher’s ecumenical perspective when he remarked that this emphasis on human dignity is “not simply an eccentric Catholic teaching, like the immaculate conception or the processions within the Trinity” (!), but it is simply an emphasis of Christian faith.

Reminds me of a comment M. Volf makes about his student days when he would go from dull Pentecostal services to a hot Catholic mass.
