20th Sunday in Ordinary Time

August 20, 2017

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a homily; thought it might be time. Here’s my humble offering for today’s Mass.

When we pick sides, as Christians, we forget our mission statement (Matt 28:19. Look it up.). There is no “is” and “them”. Jesus sent us to “all nations”. Isaiah prophecies that God wants his house to be a house of prayer for “all peoples” (Isa 56:7). That includes the white nationalists, AND Black Lives Matter. And it includes the police, and the anarchists, and the terrorists. NO ONE is beyond the reach of God’s love.
