Fr. Lenny’s Sermon – St Bartholomew’s Feast & Proper 17 – 2016

Another two-for-one.  Probably just as well since I’ll be on vacation next week.  Having been asked by the diocese to supply services for St Bartholomew’s – Scottdale on Saturday evenings, it was fortuitous to start close enough to that apostle’s feast day to recognize it.  Then regular Sunday service at St Francis, we forged ahead with St Luke’s Gospel, where we see Jesus making the link between humility and how we treat those we are tempted to think of as “below” us.  May we all be willing both to bear our cross, and to walk the way of humility expressed through love for all (not just the people we consider worthy of it).
