HOMILY FOR FRIDAY OF THE 1ST WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME YEAR I.

THEME: FRIENDS WITH FAITH.

BY: FR GERALD M. MUSA

An African proverb says, “If we stand tall it is because we stand on the shoulders of many ancestors.” We may also say, if we stand strong, it is because we stand on the shoulders of friends. A phrase of a poem says: “A frue friend is he who listens to your deepest sorrows. A ü-ue friend is like toothpaste, when it is put under pressure, it appears!” We see a clear example of true friendship in four anonymous men who brought in their paralysed friend to Jesus.

They may have tried the front door and there was no way, the side door and could not get in, the backdoor and found it locked. They were in the midst ofa mammoth crowd and ‘Clhere was no longer room for them, not even about the door” (Mark 22). Finally, they did what no one expected, they removed the roof above, got strong ropes, laid the ropes under the stretcher (pallet), held it tightly, and g•adually let him down and laid their helpless friend right before Jesus.
rmey believed Jesus was the ultimate solution and their determination, ingenuity and faith moved Jesus forgive and heal the paralytic instantly. There are üme when we are helpless and friends carry us on theb shoulders through prayers, support, and encouragement Can we imitate these faithful friends who approache« unshakeable faith?
