“Come on Brother Ass!” or How to Face Resistance (#640, 20th Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year C) • Despite my running conversion, my body still complains. We face resistance within ourselves. We also face resistance all around us. Jeremiah stayed faithful to God in the face of resistance. God isn’t welcome in our schools, our nation, or our personal lives. Those who listen to the voice of God find themselves unpopular and unwelcome. We must face remain faithful in the face of resistance. The saints surround us a cheer us on. Keep your eyes on the coach and you’ll be able to keep running the race.

 

God will bless America when America blesses God.
