32nd Sunday of Ordinary Time
"They all fell asleep"
Sometimes it seems that we have become bored with Jesus.
It seems we've become bored with Christmas, Easter, and Pentecost. And there are Mosques growing in Europe. Churches are becoming deserted Muslim shrines are swelling up.
Sometimes it seems that we have become bored with Christianity. Nothing great is happening here - just regular holy Mass - on weekdays and on Sundays. We already know it all. Nothing is going to surprise us here, nothing is going to entrance or amaze us. Nothing is going to impress us.
Sometimes it seems that we have become bored with Gospel. There's nothing extraordinary in it. All you have to do is believe that God is Love. All you have to do is love God, people and the world.
