Which kind of HOMILY/SERMON do you prefer at Sunday Mass?
97% of the time I prefer the Fire and Brimstone homilies. To me a Fire and Brimstone homily would be one in which sensitive subjects are discussed (contraception, abortion, euthanasia, homosexuality, pre-marital sex, etc.). These things are widely accepted and sometimes practices by Catholics but are clearly against church teaching. I believe these things are so prevalent among Catholics because we are not hearing about them from the pulpit.
I want and need to hear that if I don’t turn my life over to God and turn away from sin that the possibility of Hell lies ahead.
So many Catholic priests these days give these real watered down homilies with the hope that their not offending anyone. So many of my Ex-Catholic friends that have converted to a Protestant religion have told me this was one of the big reasons they left the Catholic church because they were not hearing the truth anymore. Everyone probably has different definitions for homily styles.
