Feb 19 – Homily – Fr Joachim: Choose Life!
Homily #150219n ( 03min) Play - Father comments on the readings, and shows how the words of Our Lord in the Gospel complete those in the first reading. We are told that "Today I have set before you
life and prosperity, death and doom." Then Our Lord tells us, "whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it." That is, to have real live, eternal life, we have to be willing to die to the things of this world, "take up his cross daily," and live to God. This is and this alone is the way to true life.
