Reflections with Fr. Michael Kelly - Tuesday 24 Nov, 2021

November 23rd, 2021 | 6:00 AM | E623
EPISODE SUMMARY

If ever we needed reminders about what real sacrifices our service of Jesus requires we are reminded of them by today’s gospel but also by today’s feast of Vietnamese martyrs. The following of Jesus is a way of life that costs us not less than everything. But, as today’s Gospel reminds us, we cannot pay that price all on our own. It is only with God’s grace - the power and presence of the Spirit and God’s support that coms to us through the generous attention of others -  - that we can do and offer all that is asked of us.
