HOMILY FOR WEDNESDAY THE EIGHTEENTH WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME

Jeremiah 31:1-7; Psalm – Jeremiah 31; Matthew 15:21-28

In the first reading the Lord says he will restore the fortunes of his people. This simply expressed God’s everlasting love for his people. Beloved, God’s love endures forever and we are product of that love. Thus, we should have faith when failure presses heavily on us. The woman in the gospel reading of today was repeatedly disappointed but faith gave her result; her daughter was restored.  With faith, we too can overcome the trials which afflict us throughout our life. Your faith will determine your fate! Have faith!

PRAYER FOR FAITH

Lord, I believe: I wish to believe in Thee. Lord, let my faith be full and unreserved, and let it penetrate my thought, my way of judging Divine things and human things. Lord, let my faith be joyful and give peace and gladness to my spirit, and dispose it for prayer with God and conversation with men, so that the inner bliss of its fortunate possession may shine forth in sacred and secular conversation. Lord, let my faith be humble and not presume to be based on the experience of my thought and of my feeling; but let it surrender to the testimony of the Holy Spirit, and not have any better guarantee than in docility to Tradition and to the authority of the magisterium of the Holy Church. Amen.
