(Video) When Jesus’ demands are outrageous

Fr. Peter John Cameron, OP - published on 06/28/23

Is he really ok?

Say you’ve never heard of Jesus, but suddenly he makes this outrageous demand: Whoever loves their mother more than me is not worthy of me? What would you think? That this person is either off balance … or he’s Someone Special.

Christ calls us to the combat of continual preference for him, so that we can cleave to him in love.
