Homilies: 24th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B

My homily for the 24th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year B) as preached during the 5.30pm Saturday evening Mass at Sacred Heart Cathedral, Hamilton. The readings were Isaiah 50:5-9; James 2:14-18; Mark 8:27-35.

“Confessing Jesus to be the Christ along with Peter is not enough. We are called to live that faith through good works, standing with the same people with whom Jesus stands: the poor, the disenfranchised, the abused. Anything else is not an option.”
