Click here to download and listen to this homily (16 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Rose of Lima parish in Wrangell, Alaska. Jesus calls each one of us to follow him. Pope Benedict at World Youth Day in Madrid asks us to fall in love with Jesus. He recommended these tools to us: Read and Study the Bible, Pray the Rosary, Study your Faith, Go to Mass, Go to Confession, and visit Jesus' Real Physical Presence often in the Tabernacle. We can start doing all these every month, then every week, then daily; and as we grow in holiness the Church will be renewed. We should hunger for holiness like the mule deer for running streams in the desert. Come Holy Spirit!
Readings: Jeremiah 20:7-9; Psalm 63; Romans 12:1-2; Matthew 16:21-27
