Saturday of the Second Week of Advent, 10 Dec 2011

Click here to download and listen to this homily (8 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Catherine of Siena parish in Wrangell, Alaska. Neither John the Baptist nor Jesus were recognized at the time for who they really were because the people were expecting them to be and act different then they were or did. I wonder how often I miss God breaking into my life through people He sends, and through the experiences He allows; and I miss His messages of Love and Peace because in my little limited way God's blessings are just too good to be true.

Readings: Sirach 48:1-4, 9-11; Psalm 80; Matthew 17:9a 10-13

  1. I came across this op-ed piece in the NY Times today

    What he says about religious leaders needing to laugh often and well reminded me of you. Too often I forget that our faith is supposed to make our hearts glad. That was always hard to forget with you around.
