HOMILY FOR MONDAY, FOURTH WEEK OF EASTER

HOMILY FOR MONDAY, FOURTH WEEK OF EASTER

Acts 11:1-18; Psalm 41; John 10:11-18

In the first reading Peter was criticised for associating with uncircumcised people. But Peter’s decision was guided by the Lord. In the gospel, Jesus says “I am the door of the sheep, whoever enters by me shall be saved”. Today, we are faced with many open doors, the truth has been pluralised and multiplied, churches here and there, and countless possibilities. Prov. 14:12 says “there is a way that seem onto a man but the end is death”. Like Peter may our decision be guided by the Lord, and as in Isaiah 30:21 when we wander off the road may we hear his voice say to us “Here is the road. Follow it”. Lord Jesus show us the right way to follow. Amen.

Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
