HOMILY FOR FRIDAY OF THE 10TH WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME CYCLE II

THEME: Pull down the castles of sin!

BY: Rev Fr Oselumhense Anetor (Uromi Diocese)

HOMILY FOR FRIDAY JUNE 10 2022

 

I Kings 19:9,11-16; Matt.5:27-32

Today marriages continue to break down, and vows of faithfulness are trampled under foot. What about vows of chastity and celibacy in the priesthood and religious life? Any better? Jesus does not just condemn adultery today, he also condemns lust; that which leads to fornication and divorce. He says, “but I say to you: if a man looks at a woman lustfully, he has already committed adultery with her in his heart…” Friends, whatever leads us to sin must be pulled down.

Many of us have built castles and ‘comfort zones’ of sin. We think because we’re prayer warriors, with the charisma to heal the sick and raise the dead, that our sins don’t matter. We get lost in the mighty winds, earthquakes, and the fires of this world, forgetting that God isn’t in any of these things. Friends, it’s time to take our Christian vows more seriously, and reject whatever leads to lust. We must strive to pull down the castles of sin and let grace flow round like a gentle breeze.

Good morning dear. God bless your weekend ahead.
