Do not be deceived;
neither fornicators nor idolaters nor adulterers nor
boy prostitutes nor sodomites nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor robbers will inherit the Kingdom of God. 1 Cor 6:9-10
It is widely reported that there is immorality among you, and immorality of a kind not found even among pagans—a man living with his father’s wife. And you are inflated with pride.* Should you not rather have been sorrowful? The one who did this deed should be expelled from your midst.I, for my part, although absent in body but present in spirit, have already, as if present, pronounced judgment on the one who has committed this deed, in the name of [our] Lord Jesus: when you have gathered together and I am with you in spirit with the power of the Lord Jesus, you are to deliver this man to Satan* for the destruction of his flesh, so that his spirit may be saved on the day of the Lord. 1Cor 5:1-5
Shameful Immorality, False Pride – Sep 10 – Homily – Fr Alan
By apostolate September 10, 2018
Fr Alan gives the homily on Sep 10 (Monday in the 23rd Week in Ordinary Time) relating today's scripture readings to the present situation in the Church: shameful immorality and false pride have contaminated many in the ecclesial community. The widespread acceptance of the tenets of the sexual revolution, even among Catholics, is a major factor in the present crisis, and must be corrected.
St. Paul’s strong admonition and exhortation to the Corinthians indicates medicine appropriate to the ill we now face. Likewise, the charity that compelled our Lord to heal a man on the Sabbath is a lesson for us in putting healing above conforming with popular but erroneous ideological biases. In particular, the errors of the “sexual revolution” and the false pride of many in embracing such errors, attempting even to elevate them to the status of a new doctrine, has led to conditions favoring the present clerical sex abuse crisis.
