The new priest offered his first sermon to his congregation. As the people left, many stopped and complimented him on his preaching. He thanked them, went through the week and, the next Sunday, noticed a larger congregation. Some of the parishioners looked at each other during the sermon quizzically. It certainly seemed a lot like his first one. On the third week, he delivered the same message again. The parish council, incensed, met with him after Mass. “Why are you preaching the same sermon over and over again?” they asked. His answer? “Well, I’m waiting for you to do something in response to this one.”
