1st sermon Votive Mass of Our Lord Jesus Christ the High Priest
2nd sermon - St. Hermenegild begins after 37 min.
Are you ready to pay the price? You want to build a tower and understand the things of God? Leave the care of the world.
[around 58 min.] Christ would never make a bargain of peace. Christ will never compromise with His enemies.
St. John Chrysostom explains what Christ is saying. You say you're a soldier. Do soldiers compromise? Are you ready to fight 10,000 against 20,000? If you're not, don't join the army. Are you ready to give up the glory of God, even your own glory as a soldier to compromise and to make peace with your enemies?
This is the way Christ is speaking says St. John Chrysostom and He does not in any way suggest that we should ever make peace with our enemies because there are too many of them. St. John Chrysostom made sure that nobody misunderstood that one!
