Click here to download and listen to this homily (9 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Rose of Lima parish in Wrangell, Alaska. Jesus is headed to Jerusalem to accomplish his mission to save the world through his passion death and resurrection. He cautions his disciples that they need to be "all in." we can not allow the distractions of Money and family obligations to hold us back. We are called to have Jesus be all that need need or desire. St Lawrence Ruiz (First Philippine Martyr) and his companions did just that.
Readings: Nehemiah 2:1-8; Psalm 137; Luke 9:57-62
