New and Old (Sermons), Vol. 37 free pdf Excerpt from New and Old (Sermons), Vol. 37: A Monthly Repertory of Catholic Pulpit Eloquence Embracing Two Sermons for Each Sunday and Holy-Day of Obligation of the Ecclesiastical Year 1 I. What are these "works of darkness" of which St. Paul speaks? By the word "darkness," the Sacred Scriptures designate whatever is opposed to God and his holy law. God is light, the opposite of God is darkness- hence, Satan is called in Holy Writ the prince of darkness, as the adversary of God, and in order to distinguish him from the Angels of light, whose everlasting society he wilfully forfeited. He who remains faithful to God, walks in the light- he who deserts God and transgresses his holy commandments, walks in darkness, is the follower of Satan, the prince of darkness, and a citizen of that kingdom which is justly called the kingdom of darkness. The Son of God plainly tells us this: "I am the light of the world- he that followeth me, walketh not in darkness, but shall have the light of life." (John 12: 8.) Works of darkness, therefore, are all human actions, contrary to the law of God- works of darkness are all the mortal sins which man commits voluntarily, whether in the will only or in deed- works of darkness are all the omissions of the good which a Christian is bound to do- works of darkness, in fine, are all those actions which shun the light and seek to hide themselves in obscurity and gloom, and which cannot stand before the piercing eye of that interior, impartial judge - the conscience. All these works of darkness, my brethren, we are now, at the command of St. Paul, to cast off forever: the night, the terrible night of sin, in which up to the present hour we have reposed, as it were, in the sleep of spiritual death, must now give place to the bright and joyous day of conversion, the glorious dawn of the Sun of Justice within our souls. With the close of the old year, we must cast off forever the old man and his works- so that, on Christmas-day, clothed in the white robes of repentance, we may be worthy to present ourselves in spirit at Bethlehem's crib, and there celebrate the glorious Birth of the Son of God among men. 2. In his Epistle to the Galatians, the Apostle enumerates those works of the old man, which must now be banished forever. "Now the works of the flesh are manifest- which are, fornication, uncleanness, immodesty, luxury, idolatry, witchcraft, enmities, contentions, emulations, wrath, quarrels, dissensions, sects, envy, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I foretell you as I have foretold to you, that they who do such things shall not obtain the kingdom of God." (Gal. 5: 19-22.) Behold, my dear brethren, these are truly the works of darkness, - those works which cover man, as it were, with a loathsome garment, rendering him an object of disgust and abhorrence to the Lord of holiness.
