Sep 5, Homily. Here is your God, he comes with vindication; with divine recompense he comes to save you. Then will the eyes of the blind be opened, the ears of the deaf be cleared; then will the lame leap like a stag, then the tongue of the mute will sing. Streams will burst forth in the desert, and rivers in the steppe. The burning sands will become pools, and the thirsty ground, springs of water. My brothers and sisters, show no partiality as you adhere to the faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ.

If we read these verses spiritually, the promises become even more inspiring: God is promising to alter us at the very center of our hearts. This is exactly what he has done too. He has made us a new creation!
Isaiah James Mark One time I was watching a football match on television. On either side of me were two priest friends, both of whom were smoking. During the match I was most uncomfortable breathing in all their smoke. Both of them had been advised to give up or at least reduce their smoking habit. Some time later the younger of the two, aged about 50, got a slight heart attack.
None of us take a long trip without preparing and planning ahead. We make sure we have a map and directions for the journey ahead. We do our best to be prepared for any unplanned events along the way. The invitation from Jesus is always follow me, and the decision to follow in his footsteps is not one to be taken lightly. Jesus makes this very clear right at the beginning of this Sundays gospel when he spells out the cost of being his disciple, if anyone comes to me without hating their father and mother, wife, children, brothers and sister and even his own life, they cannot be my disciple!
