I was asked by my dear friend Fr. Bryan Stitt to give a talk in his parish--St. Mary's, Canton, NY--as part of its 6-part "Trust Truth" series on the intersection between faith and reason. My topic was, "Why Worship?" on the reasonableness of the liturgy. Here's a link to the talk and the Q&A that followed (just over an hour all together):
"I appeal to you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may prove what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect."
