HOMILY FOR FRIDAY: Memorial of St Boniface, Bishop & Martyr

2 Timothy 3:10-17; Psalm 119; Mark 12:35-37🔥🔥🔥🗣

Paul tells Timothy in the first reading that all of scripture is inspired by God and, therefore, we can trust it and draw closer to Christ by reading it carefully. Paul also talks about the persecutions he faced as an inspiration for those who are being persecuted. On the other hand, in our gospel of today, the scribes saw the Messiah as the son of David, which implies that he is inferior to David.  David in Ps. 110 shows that the opposite is the case. And the gospel concludes that “They listened with delight.” Lord, may we listen to you with delight and not with dismay or disgustSt Boniface, Pray for us!

An excerpt from a letter by St Boniface (672-754)

“The Apostle of Germany”, Bishop and Martyr:

“Let us stand fast in what is right and prepare our souls for trial.
Let us wait upon God’s strengthening aid and say to Him:
“O Lord, you have been our refuge in all generations.”
Let us trust in Him, who has placed this burden upon us.
What we ourselves cannot bear, let us bear with the help of Christ.
For He is all-powerful and He tells us:
“My yoke is easy and my burden light.”
Let us continue the fight, on the day of the Lord.
The days of anguish and of tribulation have overtaken us.
If God so wills,
“let us die for the holy laws of our fathers,”
so that we may deserve, to obtain an eternal inheritance with them.
Let us be neither dogs that do not bark,
nor silent onlookers,
nor paid servants,
who run away before the wolf.
Instead, let us be careful shepherds,
watching over Christ’s flock.
Let us preach the whole of God’s plan,
to the powerful and to the humble,
to rich and to poor,
to men of every rank and age,
as far as God gives us the strength, in season and out of season.”

St Boniface, Pray for us!
