Homilies: 21st Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B

My homily for the 21st Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B, preached during the live-streamed 9.30am Mass from Sacred Heart Cathedral, Hamilton.

The readings proclaimed were Joshua 24:1-2, 15-18; Ephesians 5:21-32; John 6:60-69.

“To whom shall we go? The response of Peter to Jesus is as relevant today as it was then. When confronted with ‘other idols’ are we prepared to commit ourselves to Jesus, and all Jesus teaches, in the hope for eternal life? Can we embrace all of what Jesus has come to reveal, or is that language, that demand, ‘intolerable’?”
