Fire that cannot be quenched
Fr. Denis Robinson, O.S.B., a confrere, a good and dynamic soul, and the president-rector of the Saint Meinrad School of Theology, also gave a rousing homily yesterday to the new and returning seminarians as the fall semester begins. I was not there to hear it (not being a seminarian), but his was the homily in the school chapel Sunday for the Opening Mass of the new school year. He focuses in on the first reading from Jeremiah, the prophetic flame of the Church in our hearts througout the world, and our individual calls to burn brightly with and for one another as the Body of Christ.
Fr. Denis has posted the homily, as he does with most, on his excellent blog. Please take the time to check it out. You may find some other posts there as well worth reflecting on -- with words for us all, not just seminarians. Listen to this prophet! His blog is The Substance of Things Hoped For: Reclaiming the Catholic Imagination. Please click the link to read the homily.
