Sermon 09 January 2022 (1st Sunday of Epiphany)

What is your destination? by Fr. Dana

Simple Summary:  After a review of today’s Scriptures, questions arise: What is the purpose of all this? Why this mercy and grace? Why this patience and determination? Why a new covenant? Why the opening of eyes and releasing of captives? Why God’s powerful voice speaking? Why reward Cornelius’ limited faith? Why the sacraments of baptism and Eucharist? What is the purpose? What is the goal? What is the destination? Is it merely a rescue from hell? Is that all salvation is?
