The C&E Challenge
Few of us will actually face this most challenging of sermons in reality, but I've always wondered: what can one do?
That is, what is an appropriate homily to give to the Christmas and Easter Catholics, the ones who only darken a church door twice a year--but still, nonetheless, do come twice a year?
The challenge, of course, is to inspire them to a deeper relationship with Christ without turning them off to religion all together. No hell-fire and brimstoning, probably, but at the same time, one can't let this opportunity to greatly improve their lives with the Light of Faith to pass by unused.
So, what would you say? I know this is entirely unseasonal, but I'm curious now.
