Jul 20 – Homily – Fr Joachim: Following Jesus is Risky
Homily #150720n ( 06min) Play - St. Apollinaris is a martyr from the early Church--he was martyred in 79AD--and Father Joachim tells us about his life and sufferings for Christ. Following Jesus involves risks, even of our lives, but, as Father reminds us, we will all die and appear before the Lord. Remembering the sufferings of the Martyrs will give us the courage and strength to make the small, daily sacrifices of the Christian life.
