Homily: the Relatively Unimportant 2016 Election

Click HERE for the audio file of Father Reesman’s homily for the 32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C, given on Sunday, November 6th, 2016 at Saint Frances Cabrini church during the 10am Mass.

The homily offers the point, among others, that as a culture we have placed a distorted emphasis on the importance of the American political process and of the current election, relative to the expansive  and deeper powers of God.

We have placed far too great a set of expectations on our governing apparatus to solve our problems at the expense of personal responsibility.

Our current dysfunctional electoral climate mirrors a dysfunctional culture that the Christian community is called to renew through our universal call to holiness.
