Roc Homily – 15th Sunday Ordinary Time 2015
You heard it first… I believe I have held up a false ideal of discipleship for the 37 years I’ve preached. I repent. Gerhard Lohfink proposes a series of concentric circles of relationship to Jesus as disciples. The itinerant Twelve are not the ideal. (!) Imagine my surprise!
Fifteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time (6:00 pm Sunday)
Homily by Roc O’Connor, SJ, associate pastor of the Church of the Gesu (July 12, 2015)
Mark 6:7-13 Jesus summoned the Twelve and began to send them out two by two and gave them authority over unclean spirits. He instructed them to take nothing for the journey but a walking stick — no food, no sack, no money in their belts. They were, however, to wear sandals but not a second tunic.
