Fr. Scott Daniels, O.P., again travelled to New England, this time to Ridgefield, Connecticut, to visit St. Mary’s Parish.
Fr. Scott was met at LaGuardia Airport by Jack Gilchrist and Hank Vosswinkel, who drove him to St. Mary’s. After arrival, he began a busy weekend by celebrating and preaching at the 4:00 PM Mass. All totaled, Fr. Scott preached at nine Masses and presided at two; at most of them, people responded with applause.
The homily Fr. Scott delivered dealt with salvation history and how God raised up prophet after prophet to call His people back to Himself when they had broken covenant with Him. Just as with Israel, God deals so with us. Though we suffer the consequences of our sin, God continues to beckon and call us back to full communion with Him. As with all his homilies, Fr. Scott named the inherent evil of abortion, and preached God’s love and mercy.
