This has to be one of the best homilies that I have heard in recent memory and I hear good homilies on a weekly basis from my Pastor and Parochial Vicars at the parish I work for and attend.
This homily needs to be shared with everyone and anyone that is voting this coming election here in the United States of America. Either read it here or watch it below, but whatever you do, please share this your family and friends. This must go viral!
As I have said before on this blog, I am so glad that I live in the Diocese of Phoenix. We are very blessed to have Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted and priests like Fr. John Lankeit, my Pastor, Fr. Will Schmid, and many of their brother priests who are not afraid to preach the Gospel message of Jesus Christ.
For more information on voting as a Catholic, I would encourage you to read, Catholics in the Public Square, a document in it’s fourth edition and written by Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted.
To pray for this election, see my post – If we haven’t prayed yet for the US Election…it’s time to start praying!
More from Fr. John Lankeit, see A Catholic Priest walked into Target today.
Fr. John Lankeit is the Rector of The Cathedral of Saints Simon and Jude Cathedral in Phoenix, Arizona. He has been a Catholic priest in the Diocese of Phoenix since June 3, 2006. He has served as the Rector of the Cathedral since June 1, 2010. Fr. Lankeit is a dynamic speaker and homilist. His homilies can be heard here.
Note: After considerable thought and prayer, the comments on this blog post have been closed. Some trolls have shown up, some rather anti-Catholic rhetoric has also been given, but not approved, and extremism on both sides of the argument. Thank you to everyone that did comment.
