YEAR A: HOMILY FOR TUESDAY OF THE 3RD WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME
HOMILY THEME: AN OPEN FAMILY
BY: Rev Fr Joseph Nyarko Asare
HOMILY: (Heb 10:1-10/Ps 40/Mk 3:31-35)
I just admire the community that sat with Jesus as the family came in search of Him. They obeyed the very last words of Jesus, the great commission. The gathered were ready to allow others to encounter Jesus. They didn't monopolized the Lord. Beautifully, they informed Jesus that the family was around.
Jesus, respecting the law of giving made Himself a gift to the gathering. They gave Jesus to His human family and Jesus gave himself to that community as one of their own. They became the family of Jesus by listening and doing.
Love is word of Jesus. And the greatest act of love is to introduce people to Jesus. When they receive and live out the message of love, they become members of the family of Jesus.
~That we can possess and share Jesus with others
~That we will love the Word of God ~For complete openness to the Lord
(Rev Fr Joseph Nyarko Asare of the Catholic Diocese of Obuasi)
