Click here to download and listen to this homily (10 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Rose of Lima parish in Wrangell, Alaska. Today Jesus finds Zacchaeus who had humbled himself by climbing a tree hoping to see Jesus. St Albert the Great, Bishop and Doctor, helps rediscover the writings of Aristotle and through these inspires his student St Thomas Aquinas. "Lord God, you made Saint Albert great by his gift for reconciling human wisdom with divine faith. Help us so to follow his teaching that every advance in science may lead us to a deeper knowledge and love of you. Amen."
Readings: 2 Maccabees 6:18-31; Psalm 3; Luke 19:1-10
