Homily given at the 8:45 a.m.
Mass on Sunday, September 9, 2012, the 23rd Sunday in Ordinary
Time, by Dcn. Greg VandeVoorde, Christ the King Catholic Church.
Jesus takes the deaf-mute aside, away from the crowds, before
healing him so that He can get his attention and he can focus on
Him. Jesus wants a relationship with each of us, He wants to heal
us, He wants us to know Him in a personal way. We need to take time
to be alone with Jesus and to see Him face to face at Mass and in
the Eucharist, so that He can heal us and gives us the power to go
out to others and announce the Gospel of the Lord.
Key word: conversion, healing,
