Followers of the Suffering Servant – Feb 25 – Homily – Fr Terrance

Views 825


Fr Terrance gives the homily at Bloomington, IN on Feb 25, 2020, on how Jesus tells his disciples that he must suffer and die and how this confused and scared the disciples because they knew that they would have to suffer and make sacrifices as well. This is not what they were expecting from following the Messiah, which according to the Jewish understanding would be a political leader, who would give Israel and particularly his followers worldly greatness. Instead, God is asking them to become like little children and be servants of all, saving all glory for God and a heavenly reward.
