Fr. Rodney Kissinger, S.J. has been a Jesuit for over 71 years and a priest for over 60 years. His seasoned spirituality is the fruit of more than 60 years of making and giving the Spiritual Exercises in all of its formats to priests, religious and laity. It is presented not in the jargon of academia but in a language that everyone can understand. He is neither “old breed” nor “new breed,” he is just “half breed.” Having studied both the old theology and the new theology he is convinced that the continuity is so great that you cannot understand the new until you have mastered the old.

This week's homily is:

The Gospel for the Twentieth Week in Ordinary time gives us the persistent faith of the Canaanite woman. The Canaanites were bitter enemies of the Jews. Then add to this the resistance of the apostles, “Get rid of her.” Then there was Jesus himself who came primarily for the Jews. “My mission is only to the lost sheep of Israel. It is not right to take the food of sons and daughters and throw it to the dogs.”

But she persisted, “Please Lord, even the dogs eat the leavings that fall from their master’s table.” Then Jesus said to her in reply, “O woman, great is your faith! Let it be done for you as you wish.” And the woman’s daughter was healed from that hour.

Such persistent faith is almost unheard of today. This is the age of science and evolution. It is amazing how gullible we have been in accepting science as the “sacred cow” and permitting ourselves to be so deceived.

We seem to have forgotten that science itself is based on an act of faith. This act of faith is called the Law of Empirical Verification which holds that only those things exist that can be verified empirically, that is, counted, weighed, measured, observed and analyzed. As someone has said, “If science cannot discover it, it just isn’t there.” No one can prove that law. You have to believe it. It is an act of faith. According to Einstein, “Not all that can be counted counts, and not all that counts can be counted” CLICK HERE for the entire homily
