HOMILY FOR WEDNESDAY OF THE TENTH WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME (9/6/2021)

 

2 CORINTHIANS 3:4-11/ PSALM 99/ MATTHEW 5:17-19

Jesus says; “I have not come to abolish the Law and the Prophets but to complete them.” This shows that Jesus was not a heretic or a blasphemer. He respected the history and tradition of the people and he expressed its continuity. Beloved, these laws have come down to us today. Are we keeping or abolishing them? Many have abolished the laws and traditions of Christ and his Church and assumed for themselves laws and traditions. Others did not even continue with the Church of Christ; rather they became founders in the already founded faith. Again, there are many laws of the body of Christ that hold true that we have abolished personally. For instance; the use of contraceptives, abortion, In vitro fertilization (IVF) etc. These laws have been so downplayed and the consequence is the high level of immorality in the society today. Let us fulfill the law. 

LET US PRAY

O God, from whom all good things come, grant that we, who call on you in our need, may at your prompting discern what is right, and by your guidance do it. 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.
