Click here to download and listen to this homily (14 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Rose of Lima parish in Wrangell, Alaska. St James calls us to offer our very best selves to God, nothing less will do. Jesus laments that he is not accepted on his terms, instead we want a different Jesus. We remember Sr Dorothy Stang, Martyr of the Amazon (1931-2005).
Readings: James 1:1-11; Psalm 119; Mark 8:11-13
