The Higher Things (((HOMILY))): 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time

by Father Brian J. Soliven on Sunday October 4, 2020

A few days ago, God showed me an amazing gift -- a glimpse of Heaven. Surprisingly, there were no clouds, nor singing angels, or golden gates. Instead, I saw it in Sierra Valley. All worldly distractions faded away at that moment and the lofty words of St. Paul from the Second Reading at Mass came alive: "Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Keep on doing what you have learned and received and heard and seen in me. Then the God of peace will be with you." Philippians 4:6-9
