26th Sunday of the Year

Today's Readings remind us of our duties to obey God with actions. Quite often, "Believe" is easier than "Behave". It's easy to serve God with our lips, but it's more difficult to serve God with actions. This is the topic of my sermon today. You can listen to my sermon (in English or Chinese) from my last 2 posts below. Or you can download from my site:

MY SUNDAY SERMON SITE   

I usually got ideas for my sermons from a set of books called "The Word of God". This set is from India. There are 4 volumes: 3 volumes for the 3 years Sundays cycle, and 1 volume for Feast Days. When I was a seminarian, I was searching all over the place for the best resource book for Sunday Sermons, and this set is by far the best.

Another book I used for today sermon (the last part on Obedience) is "In Conversion with God". This book was intended mainly as a meditation book but it also provides good ideas for weekday sermons.
