Pentecost Sunday and Memorial Day

I have a wonderful parish with some wonderful priests. Yes we are lucky to have more than one priest at our church.

But I was a bit disappointed on Pentecost Sunday, the Church's Birthday with a homily that described Our Lord Jesus as not having the strength to over come his sadness at not being accepted as the Messiah and so had to ask the Heavenly Father to forgive them, cause he couldn't.

"Father forgive them, for they know not what they do..."

What? Jesus in his weakness could not forgive those that Crucified him? That's a new one for me.

Then as we closed the worship celebration with the exit song being "God Bless America" in light of the Memorial Day celebrations the next day, three quarters of the congregation emptied the church before the end of the first verse.

I don't know...I'm I being too picky?

Thank you Heavenly Father for the Church you gave us, for the Holy Spirit you sent to guide us and for our soldiers that protect us.
