The Lamp and Our Preconceptions


“Is a lamp brought in to be placed under a bushel basket or under a bed, and not to be placed on a lampstand?” (Mark 4:21)

In his homily for Thursday in the 3rd week in Ordinary Time, Fr Roman Wroblewski explains the two major elements of today’s Gospel reading: why one doesn’t light a lamp to put it under a bed, and how our preconceptions affect our view of Christ.


The homily was recorded at Our Lady Seat of Wisdom Chapel at the North Sydney Campus of Australian Catholic University.
