"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

First Sermon

Well, friends, it is scheduled now. My first sermon to the full congregation at St. Vincent's Cathedral will be on the eve of All Soul's, Monday evening Nov. 1 at 7:30PM. It is our Mass for the Departed. I am now licensed as a "lay preacher" in the diocese of Fort Worth as part of my internship at the cathedral, but up to now my preaching here has been at the school's daily chapel. That has been incredibly rewarding, and I think I have made something of a connection with the children on several occasions. But this first "grown up" sermon really kicks it up a notch. Your prayers would be much appreciated. And your presence at the Mass, if you are in the DFW area, would be a delight to my heart.
