#NCCL2011 Opening Mass Homily – Four Points

Fr. Ron  Cochran of St. Luke Catholic Church in El Cajon, California, celebrated this evening’s Mass for the NCCL conference in Atlanta. He gave a very nice reflection on this Sunday’s readings and, most helpfully, laid out his four main points:

  1. If we have faith in Christ, we will allow God to work through us.
  2. We can’t allow God to work through us unless we have died to ourselves.
  3. We offer spiritual sacrifices by offering ourselves on the altar with Christ.
  4. We do service so that we have something to bring to and offer on the altar.

I will definitely be mulling over these reflections and how they apply to my work with the diocese during the next four days of catechetical goodness!
