Sermons on Matthew

Sermo Dei: Invocavit (Lent 1), A.D. 2017

Do you recognize the tempter’s voice? His doubt, his questions? Beloved, the Lord’s answer, the Word of His cross, stands secure, established, unmovable. “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends…” (John 15:13-14). That’s what Jesus says.

Sermo Dei: Palmarum, A.D. 2015

So thus the cry: “Hosanna!” “Save us!” It’s a cry of hope to a God who is merciful. And this cry is not possible without the “Holy Spirit calling you by the Gospel, enlightening you with His gifts, sanctifiying and keeping you in the true faith.” Even for those crowds on Palm Sunday, this was a cry of belief. Let it be your cry, too. Say it while fully believing that He indeed will answer. “Save us, Lord! Save us now!”
