Click here to listen to this homily (24 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Rose of Lima Parish in Wrangell, Alaska. Jesus, the Light in the darkness, calls four fishermen to "Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men." Against all good reason they do follow Him on the most amazing adventure. Pope John Paul II witnessed to this evangelization of character and presence throughout his life. He will be Beatified on 1 May 2011, that his life and ministry might witness to the universal call to holiness we all share. Each of us are called by Jesus to invite people into relationship with Him. Be not afraid!
