Fr. Dave's Homilies

A Nation Fit for the Lord


Solemnity of the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist. The opening prayer for Mass today says that John the Baptist was raised up by God to “make ready a nation fit for Christ the Lord.” Father Dave invites us to consider that in today’s world, it’s us believers who take up that task from John: making ready the people in our lives to receive Jesus the Lord. Preached at Saint Paul the Apostle Parish in New York City on 6-24-19.
