Homily from the Fourth Sunday of Ordinary Time.
Following Jesus is not merely a matter of behaving or “being good”. It ultimately rests on whether or not we will allow the Father to get close enough to carry us. But too many people find themselves divided, afraid, and bound by their sins, their fears, and their weakness. With a word, Christ can set us free. We can be free to be held rather than bound by what enslaves us.
