Homily: 29th Sunday in Ordinary Time

In October 1974 I was a freshman at Oratory Prep in Summit, NJ and my Dad accompanied me to my first Father and Son Breakfast mass.  Fast forward 41 years later and today I was honored to have preached at the same annual breakfast!

Today’s Gospel story gives us Jesus trying, once again to initiate his disciples so that they gain insight about the paradox of life.  What is that paradox?  Why is initiation even needed?  And how can Pope Francis and Carl Jung shed light on all of this?

Check it out what I had to say today to 200 sons with their fathers…
