Taste True Freedom, Embrace the Gospel – Jul 08 – Homily – Fr Matthias
On the occasion of the memorial of St. Gregory Grassi and companions (Jul 08, 2019), Franciscan martyrs killed in the Boxer Rebellion in China in 1900, Fr. Matthias explains how a false fear of God, as an impediment to freedom, actually interferes with real and lasting freedom: “If you remain in my word, you will truly be my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:31-32).
The path to real freedom entails embracing the Gospel, not rejecting it.
