Jesus Knocking at the Door

Homily for the 16th Sunday by Fr. Joel

Fr. Joel Homilies

Welcoming Jesus

Ordinary Time, 16th Sunday. There are three levels of welcoming Jesus into our lives: 1) Jesus isn’t welcome at all. 2) We welcome Jesus into our home and into our life, but his presence is a burden. 3) We welcome Jesus into our heart and soul, and his presence is a joy. We see these levels in the story of Martha and Mary. We also see this progression in the life of Abraham. What level are you? How is Jesus welcome in your life? (18 July 2010)
