From the homily
Fr. Drew was preaching today. There were a lot of interesting points in the homily, but the one I remember most was one which concerned the reading from Malachi. He explained that in the verses just preceding the reading, the Lord speaks of the poor, polluted offerings which were being given in sacrifice. "They were giving, not the unblemished lambs and the firstfruits, but the blind sheep, the lame animals, and the leftover grain rotting in their barns. They were giving to God what they would not dare to give an earthly ruler. Yet when we come to worship Him, what are we giving to Him who has given us all ? Too often it's boredom, inattention, and sloth."
Ouch. Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa !
