Click here to download and listen to this homily (5 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Catherine of Siena parish in Petersburg, Alaska. Moses put the question to those about to enter the promise land, will they choose life by following God's commandments, or will they choose death by worshiping the false gods of the land they are about to enter. This Lent we can examine if we place our faith, trust, hope, in the false gods of Power/Control, Safely/Security, Affection/Esteem/Pleasure, and National/Group Identity? Choose Life!
Readings: Deuteronomy 30:15-20; Psalm 1; Luke 9:22-25
