Homily from the Twenty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time.

‘When it comes to making a decision, whether it’s packing or whatever you want in your life, if I don’t decide, ultimately a decision will be made, but if I don’t decide it will be made for me. … Either say, ‘I am taking Jesus out of my suitcase,” or “No, He is actually the suitcase. He is the essential thing that I cannot be here without.”
