Homily by Richard Vosko: Just Show Up!


..."Jesus started to put together his A-team. The members of his club shared possessions, ate and drank together, slept very little, and did not stay in one place for long. They followed Jesus even though at times they disagreed with or misunderstood what he was saying and doing.,,, 
The word for “repent” in Greek means to change one’s mind, not necessarily to do penance. Jesus said to them, “the time has come to change your mind....” "No one can do it alone. Think of Martin Luther King Jr or Dorothy Day or Vincent de Paul. We may not always know exactly what to do or how to do it. But, we can support one another. Just showing up … is the first step."
