In Sunday's Gospel, we hear about the disciples boldly asking for a prestigious place next to Jesus in Heaven. Jesus does not chastise them as He has in the past on certain issues; rather, He seems to want to grant them their request. What are we to take from this? Listen to my full homily HERE.

One point before I sign off. Our response to our Lord at the end of our prayers, when receiving communion, and at many other points in life is, "Amen," meaning, "I believe," "So be it." This ought not be mumbled or forgotten. It should be said confidently and with conviction.
