Click here to download and listen to this homily (10 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Catherine of Siena parish in Petersburg, Alaska. Today we celebrate with St Francis Xavier, S.J. the Joy of working in the missions for the Lord. Jesus sends us out, just as he sent those first Apostles out, to share the Good News that the Kingdom of God is at Hand! Let us do so with the same care and zeal as St Francis Xavier.
Readings: Isaiah 30:19-21, 23-26; Psalm 147; Matthew 9:35-10:1, 5a, 6-8
