Is there a written transcript for this?
All Catholics, at varying degrees, understand this. This principle, is, however, unfathomable to most Protestants who view adversity as punishment. Priesthood and Sacrifice are intrinsically Catholic. Father Brent, this beautiful presentation lasts barely eight minutes--proof abundant for all our preachers and homilists that talking on and on and jumping all over the place is unnecessary and detrimental.
You are so right, William. In addition to its illuminating, substantive teaching on the significance of sacrifice, this video is a perfect example of how briefly and beautifully a well thought-out homily can be delivered. If a homilist can't state his point meaningfully and memorably in 10 minutes, then he should either rethink the point he wants to make or find a better way to make it (better yet: do both). The interminable droning is lazy and counter-productive.

Thanks. Got it.
I can't reach that high!
--- I'm a 70 year Catholic and have never heard of this from a member of the Catholic Church ... Only heard mentioned this from Protestants and Never New what it meant .... --- Beautifully Done and Thank You for the Lesson ...
From the time I was in the 7th grade my dad taught me how to "offer it up", God rest his soul. When I offer anything up I usually add the words, I offer this up "at the foot of the Cross along with the sufferings of Christ."
Beautiful, wonderful words! The music unfortunately is quite distracting to those words.
Beautiful words as well the music.
Beautiful. The music was also very beautiful.
The Lord has taught me this. And I so wish that our priests would dare to talk about it. Many of them seem to believe that it's kind of old-fashioned...
This is beautiful! Ironically I heard a homily just last week by Fr. Jeff Kirby, Pastor of Indian River S.C.'s Our Lady of Grace Parish, preach on suffering and said the LAST suffering we can offer to the Lord is our death! When my cousin Betsy died on Monday as I held her hand, I was overwhelmed at the thought that "this is her last sacrifice!" All to Jesus I surrender!
This is also a profound point to make! Death is the culmination of life. It is the apex of all our decisions and moments of grace. It is the most mysterious point of our earthly existence. We must prepare now and every day for that moment!
