Homily from the Twenty-eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Anything can keep us from Heaven. Anything that we prefer over and over (and anything that we defer putting down over and over) can end up holding on to us. There are times when we’ve chosen so often that we no longer have a choice. And there are times when we have put off letting go so often that we can’t put it down. And we find ourselves stuck. What do we hold on to then?
