Twenty-fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time


“Whoever receives one child such as this in my name, receives me; and whoever receives me, receives not me but the One who sent me.”

In today’s homily, Fr. Stephen Hamilton reflects on the silence in today’s Gospel passage, how the disciples struggled to understand Jesus’ prediction of his own Passion, and finally how similarly we fail to understand the crosses in our own lives.
