Father Bradford preached this sermon at Mass on The First Sunday of Lent, February 21, 2021 at St Lawrence Church.
As Father said, “Lent invites us to focus on the fact self-love is always coming at us in some way. The only way to defeat it is to be quite straight with ourselves, and quite straight with God. We learn to see clearly only through penitence and prayer. That enables us to pull down the disguises from the false prophet of our self-love and send it packing. When we do, we won’t go out exactly as we came in. Following the directions given the prophet of the Lord, we will go home by a different way.”
