This sermon was given at the Cathedral in Phoenix in light of the scandal and revelations in the media. It was something we needed to hear from the pulpit and similar messages were preached at all masses throughout the country on Sunday.
Ezekiel’s Chapter 3
Task as Watchman
17 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. 18 When I say to a wicked person, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn them or speak out to dissuade them from their evil ways in order to save their life, that wicked person will die for[b] their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood. 19 But if you do warn the wicked person and they do not turn from their wickedness or from their evil ways, they will die for their sin; but you will have saved yourself.
