      SYNOPSIS:This excellent homily by Fr David Moser explains the "reason for the season" is fully laid out by the scripture read today. First of all, "Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners". The reason and effect of the incarnation is succinctly explained, including how the Lord calls to each one of us, and an example of its effect is given - the woman with the infirmity of 18 years, in which her physical infirmity is like the infirmity of the soul - bent over because of sin - and the only solution to this infirmity is the incarnation of the God-man, Jesus Christ.

    • Jesus Christ Came Into The World To Save Sinners
      What Is Sin
      1 Timothy 1-15-17, Luke 13-10-17
      2010-12-12
      SYNOPSIS:The epistle read today succinctly sums up the reason for the incarnation of the God-man: "Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners". To understand this, we must understand what sin is. Most have a great misconception about sin and only think that is is something that offends Almighty God, and do not understand that the reason God is offended is because all sin darkens us, and makes us "bent over", unable to see God and know Him. The effect of sin is well shown by the woman with the infirmity of 18 years. Lets us explore what sin does to us, and the only solution to our terrible predicament.

    • Healing Of Woman With A Spirit Of Inrimity 18 Years
      Love Is The Highest Law
      Luke 13-10-17
      2012-12-09
      SYNOPSIS:The healing of the woman with a spirit of infirmity of 18 years warns us to not be formal in our religion. Love is the highest law; we can only obey this law if we understand something critically important about ourselves. This healing teaches us both of these things.

    • A Woman Which Had A Spirit Of Infirmity Eighteen Years And Was Bowed Together And Could In No Wise Lift Up Herself
      Luke 13-10-17

      SYNOPSIS:The Gospel is a mirror for our souls. We should learn something about ourselves every time we read it. The sinful and cruel reaction of the rule of the synagogue when the woman with an infirmity of 18 years was healed on the Sabbath has much to teach us - about ourselves. If we do not know ourselves, we will not love God. This Gospel will teach us, and teach us how to become more compassionate, if we have the humility to listen.
