HOMILY FOR TUESDAY THE FIFTEENTH WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME YEAR 1 (13/7/2021)

EXODUS 2:1-15; PSALM 69; MATTHEW 11:20-24

Jesus says “It will not go as hard with Sodom on Judgement Day as with you.“ With these words Jesus lamented over Chorazin, Bethsaida and Capernaum in the gospel. After all their spiritual experiences they remained faithless. Despite all the miracles they refused to amend their ways. Christians today behave in like manner. The rampart nature of miracles in present day Christianity does not reflect in the life of the society. Miracles everywhere yet evil deeds are on the increase. Beloved, Jesus wants us to repent and live a new life. Our spiritual experiences should provoke true Christian behavior.

 

LET US PRAY

O God, who show the light of your truth to those who go astray, so that they may return to the right path, give all who for the faith they profess are accounted Christians the grace to reject whatever is contrary to the name of Christ and to strive after all that does it honor. 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.
