Today's Gospel is challenging. It is the beginning of the Way section of Luke, where after people have heard Jesus preach and have seen the miracles they are called to respond to what they have seen and heard, by changing direction in life. The church today is in a Crisis. Many are leaving, and many good people who come seeking don't find. Why is that? Is it because Jesus did not rise from the dead? Is it because he really isn't God anymore? More so it is probably because most of us are not truly committed disciples of Jesus. This homily is a call to commit, to being a disciple, and to sharing in the Mission of Jesus, to make disciples.
