Admire or Follow?

Readings for Today

Soren Kierkegaard, the Danish philosopher and theologian, was known for asking just how seriously people, Christians, took their faith. He asked, “Do we admire Jesus, or follow Jesus?” In other words, do we just see Jesus as a magnificent hero, but not someone we might have to imitate in our own lives, or is it the case that we really follow Jesus, living our own lives just as Jesus did. It is certainly not a pointless question. This Advent season is a good time to reflect on just how seriously we take our relationship with Jesus.

Homily recorded at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish, University City, Missouri on March 10, 2019.
