15th Sunday in Ordinary Time, 15 July 2012

Click here to download and listen to this homily (12 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Rose of Lima parish in Wrangell, Alaska. Jesus sends the Twelve out two by two to proclaim the Kingdom of God, cure the sick, and drive out demons. They were to pack very light, sandals and walking stick, nothing else. We too must leave behind the heavy baggage of stereotypes about Evangelization and fear that I don't know how to share the good news. We must get out there and smile and lend a hand where needed. Being joyful Christians will attract others to Christ more than anything else.

Readings: Amos 7:12-15; Psalm 85; Ephesians 1:3-14; Mark 6:7-13
