Homily from the Fifth Sunday of Lent.
A heart that is too soft has to be protected. A heart that is too tough can’t be touched.
What good is it to have a heart that can be hurt by this world? Many choose to numb themselves rather than feel the pain of life. But becoming numb leaves us with a heart that is unable. Unable to feel pain but also unable to feel joy. As Christians, we are called to have a heart like the heart of Jesus: vulnerable and able.
