Why do we want to meet Jesus? Homily for Thursday of the 25th week of Ordinary Time, Cycle 2


I preached this homily on Thursday, September 22, 2016, at St. Edward Church in Nashville, Tennessee.

Gospel Luke 9:7-9

Herod the tetrarch heard about all that was happening,
and he was greatly perplexed because some were saying,
“John has been raised from the dead”;
others were saying, “Elijah has appeared”;
still others, “One of the ancient prophets has arisen.”
But Herod said, “John I beheaded.
Who then is this about whom I hear such things?”
And he kept trying to see him.

Talk to me!
