The body of the sermon Father Bentil went into why we should respect the teachings of god and our guardians. He went through how with all of the technology around young kids don’t acknowledge who bought those devices for them and their intended purpose meaning. He also talked about how parents of these children need not just to spoil them with material goods but spoil them with love and advice. Understanding that communication and comfort will mean more to the kids than any material good we need to understand what is truly needed in our lives. I can see what he means because when I think back to all the presents I received at Christmas when I was little I never remember the material ones I remember the ones that were heart felt like someone going out of their way to say something special in a Christmas card.
Understanding that Father Bentil only gave a nine to ten minute sermon he got an important message across. I thought he did an excellent job related the speech to our real lives. He also showed why, how, and what we can do to please God. I feel that his sermons always are meant to look at what we have and appreciate how lucky we are. He encourages us to step out and help others that aren’t as fortunate as we are.
