In this homily, I explain how the story of Elsa and Anna in the Disney movie Frozen illustrates what it truly means when Jesus asks us to ‘let it go’.
(I celebrate an international Mass for geeks every Sunday at 7 pm CET/1p ET here on this YouTube channel – make sure to subscribe!)
In the homily, I refer to the gospel below:
Jesus said to his apostles:
“Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me,
and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me;
and whoever does not take up his cross
and follow after me is not worthy of me.
Whoever finds his life will lose it,
and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.
Whoever receives you receives me,
and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me.
Whoever receives a prophet because he is a prophet
will receive a prophet’s reward,
and whoever receives a righteous man
because he is righteous will receive a righteous man’s reward.
And whoever gives only a cup of cold water
to one of these little ones to drink
because he is a disciple—
amen, I say to you, he will surely not lose his reward.”
