Click here to download and listen to this homily (18 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Rose of Lima parish in Wrangell, Alaska. In telling parables Jesus is moving us to see the world in a new way. Instead of believing the contemporary culture Jesus is sharing with us how he sees things. There is a strong case that "smallness" is a prerequisite for recognizing and having the Kingdom of God grow in us and around us. Let us learn from Jesus' downward mobility.
