House on a rock
The wise man builds his house on a rock; the rock of our salvation is the Lord God Almighty, and the wise man is Jesus himself, who said, I, I will build my church. And we who are grafted in by Baptism become living stones, as St. Peter also says. And the rains pelt, and the floods rage, and the wind shakes the house, but it does not fall. And fools who build other houses find them fall, no matter how majestic they are. But is not Baptism the rain of God from heaven, and is it not also the flood of Jordan? And is it not filled with the wind and Spirit of God. Therefore we who are baptized must be drowned and die with all evil sins and lusts, that a new man may arise to give thanks to God forever. Affliction must come, but we who are in Christ shall weather the storm. And along the way, we are given food for the journey in the Blessed feast of the Sacrament. Sermon for Midweek of Trinity VIII.
