Was the Priest really surprised?

The Baptism of the Lord
This is a big deal in Christianity’s early history. Two days ago, January 13, 2019.

Was the Priest really surprised?

While delivering his Sermon a few days ago, he reached a point where he asked the entire congregation, “Are you on fire?


He asked a second time.

A few crickets woke up, but an overwhelming lack of outward expression.

Leaning over, i asked my Family, “Would you have been embarrassed if i had shouted?”


In a generally conservative, subdued Catholic Mass, it’s challenging to expect an audience to go from zero to 60 in the blink of an eye.

So Father John’s surprise surprised me.
