With Father's permission, [a member of CI] posts the outline of the sermon, which followed the announcements where he had some remarks on the role of fathers in our society, as it was Fathers Day. This sermon was not for the faint of hearts, especially towards the end. Those who don't like strong language will just have to go back watching "The Sound of Music".

OUTLINE

INTRODUCTION:

From the Gospel of St John (19:34): "But one of the soldiers opened His side with a lance, and straight away flowed out blood and water." By God's grace, we shall see why the soldier did that, and analyse more deeply what ensued, and what Our Lord's purpose was in all this.

1-WHY DID THE ROMAN SOLDIER PIERCE THE SIDE AND HEART OF OUR LORD?
A) Evil intents of the Jews in their petition to Pilate.
B) Willing to please the Jews, the soldier ends up doing God's will.
C) Quote from St. John Chrysostom.

2-WAS THE RESULT OF THIS SOLDIER'S ACTION NORMAL?
"Straight away flowed out blood and water." = A Triple Miracle!
A) First miracle: How they came out.
B) Second miracle: The Blood.
C) Third miracle: The Water.
D) Quote from St. Ambrose.

3-WHY DID OUR LORD WANT TO HAVE HIS SACRED HEART PIERCED?
A) To gain more merits.
B) As a proof of His Humanity and of His death.
C) So that this triple miracle may teach us the Great and Symbolic Mystery of the New Adam and the New Eve. (Quotes from St. Ambrose, St. Augustine, and St. John Chrysostom).
D) To show us that the root of all this is His Merciful and Infinite Love.

CONCLUSION:
We now appreciate better the Wisdom and Love of God, and how Holy Mother Church is His most cherished Bride. This makes us understand all the more how the Conciliar Church, by spiritually raping and violenting our Holy Mother the Church, is guilty of the most atrocious crimes. Therefore, we cannot pretend to have a devotion to the Sacred Heart, if we want to "normalize" our relations with those criminals. We cannot sit on the fence either! We have to defend Christ's Bride, Our Mother, with teeth and nails!
