“I Allowed Myself to be Duped” – homily for 31st August

Mass: 22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time. Readings: 1st: Jer 20:7-9. Resp: psa 63:2, 3-4, 5-6, 8-9. 2nd: Rom 12:1-2. Gsp: Mat 16:21-27

Fr. Joachim reflects on the verse from the first reading in Jeremiah, “I have been duped, and I have let myself be duped”, to understand the difficulties of the spiritual life and how we must unlearn much of what the world has convinced us is so important. We are to change the world by our example not the other way around.
