St. Lawrence and St. Philomena (Extraordinary Form)

Run Time: 6:16.  Gospel: Lk: 19:41-47

So as we celebrate this feast [of St. Lawrence] – and in fact the vigil of St. Philomena as well – we are reminded with these great witnesses, that to witness to the faith does not necessarily mean using powerful or convincing words, but it’s all those little things that we do:  Trying to purify our intentions and our desires to conform them with the desires and intentions of Christ.  That practical charity that for the world at large goes unnoticed.  That we practice out of love for God and neighbor.
