Archbishop Peter A Comensoli
Homily: 6th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year A)
In teaching his disciples of the way of the Lord, Jesus was encouraging them to get swimming in the great ocean of God’s Kingdom. This requires training, because you need to build up the wherewithal and strength to keep going. Living the way of virtue requires practice. It also requires a bit of gospel boldness, because it can be a bit scary going out into the deep. That’s why Jesus left us with the encouraging gifts of his Holy Spirit.
