Father Francis Stevenson, pastor of Corpus Christi in Tahoe City, made a 15-minute homily on March 15 for today, Laetare Sunday, March 22.
Father Stevenson said the alpine snow of Lake Tahoe made him feel as if he were in Canada and mentioned two favorite online Canadian priests, Father Anthony and Father Mark Goring. But the thrust of the homily was shepherding and jealousy.
Here is a 15-second excerpt from the sermon:
“David was not only guilty of adultery, he was also guilty of murder. I think the thing that really made God really upset with David was David forgot who he really was.”
