Click here to download and listen to this homily (8 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Catherine of Siena parish in Petersburg, Alaska. It is in today's Gospel that we find the only place Jesus describes him self as an animal. We could want Jesus to be a great powerful horse or mighty lion, yet Jesus likens himself to a mother hen desiring to gather us under his wings. Jesus came into the world weak and vulnerable to show us God's love. May we always be humble enough to take shelter under his wings.
