HOMILY FOR THURSDAY OF THE 2ND WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME YEAR I.
THEME: ARE YOU IN NEED OF JESUS?
BY: Fr. Eugene Sixtus.
In the first reading of the day, the superiority of Christ priesthood is presented as Ideal priest who is holy and perfect. He offered the greatest gift of Himself to God at the greatest altar which is heaven. We who share from his priesthood are called to emulate Him
In the Gospel, Mark provided us with veritable Data on how Christ offered his entire life on earth in attending to the plights and needs of his people. This is done through his teachings and healings of the sick ones. A lot of people who have heard about Christ came from far and near to listen to his wisdom and have their problems solve.
We are to have this two points at heart from the Gospel of today.
1. While Jesus was on earth he spent his whole life attending to our needs and even now that he is in heaven, he continues his work of intercessor on our behalf. Thus, we Christians are called to imitate this kind gestures of Jesus. Good life or happy life isn’t amount of wealth acquired but how many people to whom we are able to instill some joy and happiness into.
2. Everyone was looking for Jesus, I was really touched by this particular statement of everyone looking for Jesus, they discovered their needs for this great high priest and sort for him. Now more than ever, our generation needs Jesus than any other, but instead of our youths to seek for the master who is able to quench their difficulties in all ramifications, they have resulted to those gods which can either hear nor speak.
I pray this day, that our search and quest for Jesus the Christ may increase now, even as hear hear his words in our various churches, may it increase our faith in realizing the power in the Jesus who is able to solve all our human needs. Amen.
