HOMILY FOR MONDAY OF THE EIGHTEENTH WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME, YEAR 1 (AUGUST 02, 2021)

Numbers 11:4b-15; Ps.81; Matthew 14:13-21

We must bring forth our gifts. What we have inside of us is always more than enough. Man’s problem is greed. We don’t want to bring forth what we have. Oftentimes we think it will not be recognized or others have more than we do. Beloved, God has a purpose for your gifts. The little boy in the gospel brought forth what he had and it was multiplied that they had left over. Beloved, if you don’t bring it forth you will not go forth. If you don’t express what you are capable of doing because you think it will not be appreciated you will end up in regrets. Bring forth your skill and Jesus will spring it forth! Lastly, do not despise little things and be generous. 

LET US PRAY

Draw near to your servants, O Lord, and answer their prayers with unceasing kindness, that, for those who glory in you as their Creator and guide, you may restore what you have created and keep safe what you have restored. 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.
