Sermon: Laetare Sunday, 3/31/2019 – Fr. Patrick Rutledge

Laetare Sunday is a moment in the midst of a penitential season during which the Church calls Her children to rejoice. Why? It is all too often that we, as fallen creatures, easily lose sight of the goal, of the purpose for which we are fasting, for which we are striving during Lent. She calls us to re-orient, to remember, and to look up towards our true calling, the path on which is the answer to finding true (not perfect, but true) happiness in this life and in the perfect happiness in the next.
