Lacordaire is the name of a very famous French preacher who has gone down in the history of the Church as one of its greatest. In many seminaries, students are required to study his style in their homiletics courses. He preached thrilling sermons. Thousands of people would come to hear him. There is a story about him in which he is seen attending a worship service in a small rural parish. The sermon was preached by a little-known Curate. When Lacordaire was asked why he, a great preacher, would go to a little Church to hear an unknown preacher, he replied, “When I preach, people swarm into the Church, and it becomes so crowded they even climb atop the confession boxes in order to see me. But when this humble man preaches, the people go into the confession boxes — and that is what the world needs!”
