Thomas got out of the gathering and missed the first appearance of Jesus. Judas is condemned now because he left at the course of the gracious last supper. Paul was so focused that prison gates could not prevent him from ministering. He could write to motivate the Ephesians and direct…

YEAR B: HOMILY FOR THURSDAY OF THE 23RD WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME (3)

YEAR B: HOMILY FOR THURSDAY OF THE 23RD WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME. MEMORIAL OF SAINT JOHN CHRYSOSTOM, BISHOP AND DOCTOR HOMILY THEME: LOVING CONCRETELY BY: Rev Fr Joseph Nyarko Asare   HOMILY: (1Cor 8:1-7,11-13/Ps 139:1-3,13-14,23-24/Lk 6:27-38) Love is very active and practical. It is an act of self giving and sacrifice. It let go without expecting a return. It opens us up to everything from the other (world, loved one, etc.). It could expose us to danger, pain or tears. No matter its demands, we are commanded to love. Chrysostom died around 58…

YEAR B: HOMILY FOR THE 23RD SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME HOMILY THEME: ERA OF GLORY BY: Rev Fr Joseph Nyarko Asare   HOMILY: Great news is when your transformation is near and you are duly informed. Exiled Israel receives the message of restoration, healing, cleansing, and re-establishment. In the Gospel, we see Jesus healing and restoring all in need of Divine intervention. Jesus fulfils the prophecy of Isaiah and we live in this era of fulfilment. Now, some beautiful information: God has empowered us to continue His ministry of transformation. Thus, we…

YEAR B: HOMILY FOR THE 22ND SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME (9) HOMILY THEME: THE LAW NOT YOUR LAW

YEAR B: HOMILY FOR THE 22ND SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME HOMILY THEME: THE LAW NOT YOUR LAW BY: Rev Fr Joseph Nyarko Asare   HOMILY: (Deut 4:1-2, 6-8/Ps 15:2-5/Jam 1:17-18, 21-22, 27/Mk 7:1-8, 14-15, 21-23) God loves us and cares so much about our life and our situations. He does not restrict us or causes us pain. As a loving Father (parent), he denies us only what does not benefit us for good. He gives us direction, guidance and instructions purely for our good and our benefits. His laws, therefore, are the…

YEAR B: HOMILY FOR TUESDAY OF THE 21ST WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME. MEMORIAL OF ST AUGUSTINE OF HIPPO HOMILY THEME: STAND FIRM BY: Rev Fr Joseph Nyarko Asare   HOMILY: (2 Thes 2:1-3, 14-17/Ps 96:10-13/Mt 23:23-26) It is very dangerous to think that you are beyond falling back or backsliding. We must be hopeful but never over-confident. Again, let us not be too discouraged as if there is no hope for our lives and conditions. Paul motivates the people of God to stand firm. It is a call to be strong, to…

YEAR B: HOMILY FOR MONDAY OF THE 21ST WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME. MEMORIAL OF ST. MONICA HOMILY THEME: THE EXTERNAL OBSERVER BY: Rev Fr Joseph Nyarko Asare   HOMILY: (2Thess 1:1-5,11-12/Ps 96:1-5/Mt 23:13-22) We could be righteous in our own eyes without being right with God. The only verdict which is permanent is the verdict of God. When He acquits, no one condemns and vice versa. Jesus condemns the scribes and Pharisees for their hypocrisy. They see themselves as righteous but are merely receiving themselves. Their biggest danger is that they refused…

YEAR B: HOMILY FOR THE 17TH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME (7) HOMILY THEME: THE SUFFICIENT GOD

YEAR B: HOMILY FOR THE 17TH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME HOMILY THEME: THE SUFFICIENT GOD BY: Rev Fr Joseph Nyarko Asare   HOMILY: God is enough for us; with Him, we lack nothing in life. He feeds multitudes with almost nothing. With Elisha, God fed some hundred hands with barely twenty loaves of bread. In the Gospel, five loaves were enough to satisfy (not just feed) a crowd that had about five thousand men. God is our sufficient provider. We are God’s children and, like the Apostles, we must learn to obey…
