Homily of the Feast of Mary Mother of God - 2019

 

Dearly Beloved, as so many in the world celebrate the beginning of a new year, the Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Mother of God. This celebration, in NO way admits the divinity of Mary.

Dearly Beloved, Looking back to about eight years ago, I just can’t stop laughing at myself. For the first time in my life I was about to board an airplane. I was making a trip to Lagos in Nigeria. I met a parishioner at the airport who was also traveling to Nigeria. Through our conversation I got to know that he was traveling on first class. Before I could leave to check-in he was called by one of the airline officials to board and as it were, we said goodbye. Upon entering the aircraft, looking for my seat, I gaze on him sitting in one of the front seats.
