Welcome to Albert's Sermon Illustrations

In this blog, I have collected many stories, quotes, jokes and ideas that I use regularly in my sermons.I have tried to put in the sources and origins of these illustrations. If I have missed some or gotten the wrong sources, please let me know. I will update them. Feel free to use these illustrations for the glory of God. If you have some illustrations that you like to contribute, kindly add them to my blog, so that I and others may benefit from them. God bless!

Silver and Gold We Have!

Thomas Aquinas
Thomas Aquinas was one day with Pope Innocent the Fourth in his closet, when an officer of his chancery came in with a bag of gold, procured by Absolutions and Indulgences. 

The Pope profanely said: "See, young man, the Church is not what it was in the times when it used to say, "Silver and gold have I none"

"Holy Father, that is very true, indeed," replied Aquinas, "but then it cannot say to the poor afflicted with the palsy, 'Rise, take up thy bed and walk.'"
