Cast Out the Spirit of Fear – Sunday Homily

A bit of anxiety when I tossed out the notes, but it worked out in the end.

  1. The Lord is telling us not to fear the results of our efforts while laboring in His Name in the vineyard, especially if they are minimal by our estimation. We are not to conclude that what we may do “is not worth the effort”, knowing that the Lord’s way of bringing people successfully into the flock is not measured by our calculations. Our baptismal covenant requires us to keep persistently trying. Sure, we all have variable abilities to do the work of the Lord, but the main point is to remain an active player, as opposed to being a passive one, in the work to be done.
    Thank you for a most stimulating homily.
