What Jonah Learned (Father Schenck)

What Jonah learned [in today’s readings] is that those prejudices often are false. And if we leave the door open—if we leave the possibilities in place, if we make the effort, and if we are prompted by the Spirit and we go with that prompt—as absurd as it may seem, then suddenly what we imagined to be impossible becomes reality. And not only are those who we make an appeal to, transformed, but we are transformed ourselves in the process, and our lives are open to new possibilities by learning from those unlike us. LISTEN to Father Schenck’s homily.
