My Podcast Homily for the Fourteenth Sunday After Trinity is now available on the Podcast Homilies page at the AIC Web Site, on our Podbean site and via iTunes Podcasts. The two readings are Galatians 5:16-24, St. Paul’s mini-homily on the Christian virtues (fruits of the Spirit) and what would later come to be called the contrary virtues, which is those which run counter to the Seven Deadly Sins, and St. Luke’s account of Jesus healing ten lepers, Luke 17:11-19. I set the discussion of St. Luke’s account in the context of the origin and meaning of “faith,” from Latin to Middle English and the Greek New Testament word pistis.
There a two closing prayers, one which I compiled for the AIC Bookstore publication, Prayers in the Christian Tradition (3rd Edition) from the work of Pope Leo the Great and St. John Chrysostom. The second prayer is the Collect for the Fourteenth Sunday After Trinity which Archbishop Cranmer edited from the Leonine Sacramentary, based on the form used in the Church in England.
