Archbishop Peter A Comensoli
The following is the homily delivered by Archbishop Peter A Comensoli at the Mass at the Basilica of St Paul Outside the Walls.
Within some circles and among some people, laying claim to being justified before the Lord is a bit like achieving membership of some exclusive club. It infers a certain status on the one deemed justified: you’re a signed up, card-carrying member, with all the privileges entailed. You’re in with God, and keen to present yourself before others as one of the insiders.
