From the homily
Actually, these quotes are from yesterday's homily. Fr. Bryan was the celebrant at noon Mass yesterday, and it was excellent. A few quotes.... (these are not exact, as I did not have a tape recorder at Mass.)
" We might be astonished at the Israelites grumbling. After all, they had just been led out of slavery in Egypt, with God manifesting Himself in many miracles. However, we do the same thing.... Jesus suffered and died for us, and He gave us the Eucharist, His Own Self in His Body and Blood, and we spend our time grumbling..."
"Many people complain that the Church does not fit in with the current century, especially in her moral teachings. However, the current culture is on the road to Hell. I know I don't want to go there, and you probably don't either. "
"The pollsters say that 50% of Catholics do not believe that Jesus is truly present in the Blessed Sacrament. Well, He is. It is not a mere sign or symbol; He is there. He said so. "
