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. Today Samuel anoints Saul as King of Israel. Jesus calls Levi the tax collector to follow Him. When challenged by the religious leaders about eating with sinners Jesus responds, "Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do. I did not come to call the righteous but sinners." May we always have the courage and humility to hang out with the people Jesus loves.
Readings: 1 Samuel 9:1-4, 17-19, 10:1; Psalm 21; Mark 2:13-17
