HOMILY FOR MONDAY OF THE 3RD WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME YEAR I.

THEME: Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit!

BY: Rev Fr Oselumhense Anetor (Uromi Diocese)

Heb.9:15,24-28; Mark 3:22-30

In our Catechism days, we were taught that one of the sins against the Holy Spirit is resisting the known truth. Right? There is also Despair; Presumption; Final Impenitence or a firm determination not to repent; Obstinacy in sin; Envy of another’s spiritual good. Resisting the known truth is an eternal sin, it cannot be forgiven. Jesus came and worked wonders through the finger of God, but scribes from Jerusalem, who should know better, condemned him and accused him of being possessed by a demon.

Don’t we see what’s happening in Christendom today? Some years ago, I saw a video of a popular man of God instructing his followers to kill Fulani herdsmen if they came close to his Church, claiming that David killed Goliath. Seriously? Is that God’s message? We have become a household so divided that we can barely stand. We have preachers teaching only what appeals to them. It is true that Christ dealt sin a fatal blow and opened up the gates of heaven. But it’s not true that we automatically can go in if we fail to understand and accept the meaning of that sacrifice. Anyone who denies and rejects the power of Christ to save us, commits blasphemy against the Holy Spirit.

Good morning dear. God bless your week ahead.https://www.catholicforlife.com/homily-for-monday-of-the-3rd-week-in-ordinary-time-year-i-2/
