If You Don’t Know the Bad News,
the Good News is no News

Homilist: Rev. Msgr. Charles E. Pope

December 15, 2019 — There’s an old saying that if you don’t know the bad news, the good news is no news. We start out in the beginning of Advent spending a lot of time getting in touch with the bad news: that we’re sinners and we need God’s mercy. We need healing. We’re struggling as a not just as individuals but as a human race, and we need a great great healing.

All the early readings from Advent talk about the lament of the prophets of our sins. All of this is to get us in touch with the bad news, which is basically this, “You got it bad, and that ain’t good.”  But here comes the good news because there is a doctor in the house and his name is Jesus. If you allow him to work in your life, he will save you from the mess that you are and the mess you’ve made.
