Homily for Friday, 7th day within the Octave of Christmas

Theme: TIME IS PRECIOUS

By: Fr. Gerald M. Musa

Homily for Friday December 31 2021

 

Someone asked his friend, “What are you doing?” The friend responded, “I’m just here killing time.” Time is too precious to be killed recklessly. preachers often remind their listeners about the last day, last hour, last breath, and a time when everything imaginable will end. We all tend to leave the most important things in life till the last minute. John the evangelist is time conscious. In the prologue (first chapter) of his Gospel, he recounts what happened in the beginning; in his letter he states, “It is the last hour,” (1 John 2:18); in his last book, the book of Revelation, he writes about visions of what will happen at the last days, the end of time. He reveals one of the signs of the last hour, which is the emergence of many antichrists, who are ravenous wolves in sheep clothing. In the last days of each year, these antichrists come with misleading prophecies, and many gullible people, who have itchy ears for falsehood fall into their traps. We must use our time well to grow in the knowledge of our faith so that we are not easily deceived. Like the Psalmist, we should also pray to God asking, “Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom” (Psalm 90:12). Time is a very precious gift from God. We thank God for all the blessings and experiences of the last twelve months from January to December and we hope for the best in the coming New Year. Can we all agree to invest our time wisely?
