CATHOLIC HOMILY FOR 12TH TUESDAY OF ORDINARY TIME – YEAR B

HOMILY THEME: “DO NOT GIVE DOGS WHAT IS HOLY…”

BY: Bishop Anthony Ewherido

2 Kings 19:9-11, 14-21, 31-36; Psalm 47(48):2-4, 10-11; Matthew 7:6, 12-14

About 701BC, the same mighty, vicious Assyrian army that routed nations, including the other Israelite kingdom, besieged Jerusalem. In their powerlessness, King Hezekiah cried out to God. Despite His anger against his people for their sins, God destroyed the Assyrian encampment that night, because of His promise to David. God is always faithful. When life’s challenges threaten us, we must trust and cry out: “Lord, save me.”

In three short sayings, Jesus teaches us today’s important lessons. 1. Our faith in, and relationship with, God are superlatively invaluable. We must not substitute them for anything/anyone else, thereby selling our divine birthright. People do often, trading different churches or even trading Christ for idol worship and fetish practices. 2. Made in God’s image, all humans deserve dignity. Let us treat others as we would expect others to treat us. 3. The easiest or fastest way out is not always the best way. The best way may present difficulties and demand discipline in every endeavor in life. But we must always seek the best way out; and that is usually the narrow path that very few desire to follow. It leads to excellence, true value, and eternal life.

Lord, defend us in this life and save us for life eternal. Amen.
