Bad Shepherds: Homily for 16th Sunday in Ordinary Time 7/22/18

What do we do when we have a bad shepherd?  We hold on to the promises of God.   This is what we learn from Jeremiah today, and is very much applicable to our Church throughout history and today.

In the homily, I mention St. Peter’s Bones.  There is a new book about the excavation of the bones of St. Peter, The Fisherman’s Tomb by John O’Neil.  Read more about it here.

I also mentioned Bl. Pope Paul VI’s Encyclical Humanae Vitae.  It happens that this week is the 50th anniversary of its writing! For more on this encyclical, you can visit the Dubuque Archdiocese website here.
