HOMILY FOR TUESDAY THE FOURTEENTH WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME, YEAR II

Hosea 8:4-7, 11-13; Psalm 114; Matthew 9:32-38

Despite God’s love for his people, they continued to spurn him. Prophet Hosea recounts their sins and how they abused his altars and created false idols for themselves. Human heart is truly hard. The gospel further illustrates this hardness of heart in the words of the Pharisees when they said that it was by the ruler of demons Jesus cast out demons. Jesus was not distracted by this statement rather he remained steadfast and invited us all to be labourers in his vineyard. We pray for the grace to be true labourers and not destroyers of God’s work and mission.

The Prayer for Vocations to the Priesthood and Religious Life

Lord Jesus Christ, Savior of the world! We humbly beg of Thee to manifest in Thy Church the Spirit Whom Thou didst so abundantly bestow upon Thy Apostles. Call, we pray Thee, very many to Thy priesthood and to the religious life. And may zeal for Thy glory and the salvation of souls inflame those whom Thou hast chosen; may they be saints in Thy likeness, and may Thy Spirit strengthen them. O Jesus, give us priests and religious according to Thine own Heart! O Mary, Mother of Jesus! Obtain for fervent souls the grace to hear and the courage to follow thy Divine Son in the path of religious perfection.

Queen of Apostles, pray for us.

Queen of Virgins, pray for us.
