TEACHING- [Past posts below]
This Sunday I spoke on the Mass verses- most of them that is.
I got a little off track and spent more time teaching on some of the gospel passages- and left out the reading from James.
Sure enough I made a video with my homeless friends- and got to cover it here- https://youtu.be/NICjeyd2rx4
The reading from Isaiah is a famous reading
Isaiah 50:5 The Lord GOD hath opened mine ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away back.
Isaiah 50:6 I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting.
Isaiah 50:7 For the Lord GOD will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed.
Isaiah 50:8 He is near that justifieth me; who will contend with me? let us stand together: who is mine adversary? let him come near to me.
Isaiah 50:9 Behold, the Lord GOD will help me; who is he that shall condemn me? lo, they all shall wax old as a garment; the moth shall eat them up. [On the video I also ‘mixed’ in the reading from Psalm 116]
It is a prophecy about Christ- and it speaks about being willing- being obedient- to what God speaks. [Some sites see here https://corpuschristioutreachministries.blogspot.com/2021/08/sunday-sermon-text_29.html ]
