You know it’s been a good homily when people stand up and leave shortly afterwards.
So – if memory serves – it went a bit like this.
We are warned in the Epistle about false prophets, which these days attack us both from within and without the Church. From within by people who think that ‘progress’ and ‘change’ are the only ways forward: a trend seen especially over the past fifty years. Schillebeeckx was named. From without, false prophets are found in false religions, but especially in politics, where symptoms are seen in, for example, the current US president and his views on abortion. The situation in Dutch politics is not much better.
I’m also fairly sure the word ‘diabolical’ was used (Dutch: duivels).
Fr. Kn didn’t quite thump the pulpit, but there was Confiteor-like striking of breast and slapping of stonework going on.
After the Creed a rather well-to-do-looking couple got up and walked out. Guess they didn’t want to contribute to the collection then.
