The Gospel for Sunday contains lots of interesting juxtapositions: hatred for Jesus but grudging respect, real questions vs. rhetorical ones, politics and faith, duties to Caesar and duties to God. The word “juxtaposition” comes from the Latin juxta, meaning “near” and positio, meaning “place” or “position”

I used to enjoy preparing my homilies. Since the pandemic, not so much.
For one thing, I find it hard to preach to a small congregation spread out in the church. And preaching to a larger congregation over the internet is a bit nerve-wracking.
Homily Give yourself to God. This is a deep and rich truth that Jesus is teaching us.
Homily Jesus urges us to have faith. If we have faith we will see God working mightily in our lives.
Believe and ask the Father for the Holy Spirit.
Homily When we look at all of creation, humans have a special place. We are set apart. We are the only creature specifically made in the image and likeness of God, made for union with God.
Homily Jesus was very familiar with loaded questions.
