SHORT HOMILY FOR DIVINE MERCY SUNDAY YEAR B
THEME: Refuse to be stopped!
BY: Rev Fr Oselumhense Anetor (Uromi Diocese)
HOMILY: Acts 4:13-21; Mark 16:9-15
The true disciple does not bend to the whims and caprices of human beings. He or she is chiefly accountable to God alone. Peter and John had performed a miracle that the Jews and elders couldn’t deny. They had gone further to preach to all the people that it was by power in the name of Jesus, whom they crucified, that this miracle was made possible. The elders knew it was a lost battle, so they began to threaten the Apostles. They failed!
Friends, a disciple of truth, justice and fairness can’t be stopped. People will summon you and threaten you when you stake out your neck to resist evil. You’ll become a thorn that must be eradicated, a pest that must be exterminated. Do not be afraid. You have God for your help. Refuse to be stopped. The mandate hasn’t changed; “Go into the whole world, and proclaim the gospel to every creature.” Can I get a witness?
Good morning dear. God bless your weekend. Happy Divine Mercy Pilgrimage today.
