Homily for Thursday, October 1, 2020

Today’s Mass features a process in the life of a disciple. First, Job says this: “And from my flesh I shall see God; my inmost being is consumed with longing.” Whether we realized it or not, the process of becoming a disciple began with this process, a deep longing for God. In the gospel, we are told what this longing leads to in our lives. We are sent. “Jesus appointed seventy-two other disciples whom he sent ahead of him in pairs to every town and place he intended to visit.” In love, we share what we believe. So, hear Jesus today: “Go on your way.”
