Homily for Saturday the Twenty-ninth Week in Ordinary Time

Ephesians 4:7-16; Psalm 122; Luke 13:1-9


Paul tells us that we all have our various roles in the Body of Christ. Each person’s role is different but ultimately each is for the spreading of the Good News. Therefore, we must do all we can to fulfil that role deligently. We easily neatpick people’s weak points when they are playing their roles or discharging their duties. We indulge in judging and condemning others for their sins and weaknesses. Are we better than those we condemn? Reptance is not for Mr. A and Mrs. B alone; you too need repentance. Jesus says “Unless you repent you will all likewise perish.”

A Prayer for Sincere Repentance

Oh Most humane and adorable Jesus, Your endless grace and mercy flows forth. Before granting the gift of absolution To earnest repenters of sinful ways, You demanded a sacrificial compensation. For a wrongful act cannot be rectified Until punishment has been accepted! Yes, for the salvation of my soul, Jesus, You accepted the price of the Cross! Grant me the grace to remain free of debts, My heart remaining flawless before You, Making Your absolution truly worthwhile!
