¡Cuánto exige Cristo!—para librarnos y darnos la vida verdadera

¿Te parece que Cristo y su Iglesia exigen mucho, como un amo? Pero siempre servimos a algo o alguien, como amo. Padre Dan examina como Cristo nos enseña que nadie puede servir a dos amos—y él es quien nos ofrece la libertad y la plenitud verdadera en su servicio. Largo: 9:41. (Lee el texto de la homilia aquí) (VIII Domingo Ordinario, Año A)
