The Parable of the Hot Young Man

Now behold, one came and said to Him, “Good Teacher, what good thing shall I do that I may have eternal life?”

So He said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God. But if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments.”

He said to Him, “Which ones?”

Jesus said, “‘You shall not murder,’ ‘You shall not commit adultery,’ ‘You shall not steal,’ ‘You shall not bear false witness,’ ‘Honor your father and your mother,’and, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ ”

The young man said to Him, “All these things, except committing adultery I have kept from my youth. What do I still lack?”

Jesus said to him, “If you want to be perfect, go, leave the woman you are currently having sex with, be reconciled to your wife, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.”

But when the young man heard this teaching, he considered it very exclusionary and hurtful, for he could not leave the hot young woman he has sex with.

He started to turn away from Jesus because he was sad, but Jesus ran after him and said to him,

“My child, do not go away sad or sullen.  Let me accompany you on life’s journey. Let us walk together and discern what gifts you and your hottie can bring to the Church.  Let us recognize the positive elements in your relationship and share them with the sheep among my fold. We’ll integrate you into my Church community so that we can give the perception that what is now currently “irregular” will be a moot point and your relationship will be considered, in time, very regular, and the idea of “scandal” becomes a curious oddity. And who knows? With the power of binding and loosing that my decentralized Church now holds for these pastoral situations, the more merciful of my bishops will allow you to receive holy communion.  Have faith and don’t worry about the pharisees. In time, all will be well.”

  1. I agree
    May God Help us, we are going to hear some real whopper sermons at many parishes now (as if we had not already) but I was so grateful to hear a fine Priest affirm what Jesus says regarding marriage and family , and say it with firm bold conviction today, at the Latin Mass where we attend. What an oasis in the sea of mud that is so prevalent and nauseating not to mention unbelievably infuriating in many of the so called sermons from those who do not love Christ and/or are not is real disciples that are really just using the time menat to preach on what God would have them say regaring the Gospel and readings and instead hijack said time by subjecting the Laity and I am sure some in the laity are very happy about this to propagandize instead about more fake “luv” except now they have substituted and hijacked the true meaning of the word “charity” and how we must be “open” to moving “different” types” of “families”, and “changes” for the “new” church , the “synod”church that is . Truth is it is only going to get worse. Get ready.

    The Priest today at Mass even affirmed how the reception of The Most Holy Blessed Real Presence of Our Lord and Savior in His Most Holy Eucharist should only be received on the tongue and that we are to focus on Jesus during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass NOT one another but to look at Him as the Priest does during the Mass.Thank You Lord for the Latin Rite. They even have Confessions on Sundays and the Priest does not believe in accompanying anyone to Hell but not telling them the Truth and Nothing but The Truth so Help me God. They do not mince words either just as Jesus certainly did not.

    Our Father…Hail Mary…Glory Be…St. Michael the Archangel…St. Joseph and All the Saints and Angels pray for us and The Holy Roman Catholic Church
