HOMILY FOR SATURDAY OF THE THIRD WEEK OF EASTER YEAR 1 (24/4/2021)

ACTS 9:31-42; PSALM 116; JOHN 6:60-69

Filled with the Holy Spirit Peter went to places spreading the Good News of the Kingdom. Peter led many to Jesus through his preaching, healing and deliverance. Many lives were touched and the Church grew.  Similarly, in the Gospel on behalf of the disciples Peter responded to the question Jesus asked, saying; “Lord, to whom shall we go?” Peter asked this question because some of the disciples were offended by Christ’s teaching and turned away from him. This question is as relevant and urgent today as it was two thousand years ago. Many men and women had tried to find out to whom they should go but arrived at Jesus. Beloved, do you find Jesus’ teaching too hard to bear? Do you feel like trying other options? Let us go to Jesus –  He is the way, the truth and the life!

 

LET US PRAY

O God, who in the font of Baptism have made new those who believe in you, keep safe those reborn in Christ, that, defeating every onslaught of error, they may faithfully preserve the grace of your blessing. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever.
