Roc Homily – Twentieth Sunday Ordinary Time 2016-Troisieme

one more thing… When fire comes upon the earth, what might conversion look like? Here’s what I perceive:

Pope Francis & the leper St. Francis & the Leper

More and more, I have grown in appreciation of the story of St. Francis and the leper (and for Pope Francis with the poor). They found Christ in those whom otherwise were despised.  Seems to me that this image calls me (and us as well) to embrace the leper in our own lives and at the same time in those whom we would otherwise avoid.  This expression of charity is the goal of discipleship.

The fire on the earth, the fire of the Holy Spirit, I believe, will set each of us free from our comfort zones to encounter Christ in the world. Come, Lord Jesus! Send us your Spirit!
