Even if we have thousands of acts of great virtue to our credit, our confidence in being heard must be based on God's mercy and His love for men. Even if we stand at the very summit of virtue, it is by mercy that we shall be saved.

His riff on the light pollution and Enlightenment makes me wonder if he was reading my email about five years ago.

A lovely homily.

Agreed. That's beautifully written and a very important point that isn't made often enough.

Seriously, part of my anecdotes is all about light pollution and the Enlightenment. And alcoholism and astronomy.

Good sermon. It mainly draws to mind the point in the Easter Vigil liturgy when the deacon chants "Christ our light!"

Well said by the Holy Father. I daresay that we Orthodox can relate to his homily in a manner that many of us simply can not do when we hear or read the words of many leading American evangelical preachers.
