YEAR B: HOMILY/REFLECTION FOR THE 24TH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
HOMILY THEME: THE MESSIAH IN THE NOW
BY: Fr. Emmanuel Nwokeji.
GOSPEL: MK 8:27-35
“What about you?” he asked them. “Who do you say I am?” Peter answered, “You are the Messiah.” Mark 8:29
In today’ Gospel, Twenty-Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time we will reflect on our present day Messiah.
Those facts and teachings which our fore fathers conceived about the Messiah to come need a radical change in our days in which the Messiah is present in our midst.
Our Messiah is the suffering Servant. He did not reject his part to salvation of mankind because of suffering. His suffering and death has opened door for us; the gate of salvation.
Therefore, suffering can open our eyes to a richer, better and more beautiful life. As you embrace the new mentality of the true Messiah, may you be glorify in your suffering and your family ugly situations.
Happy Sunday of the 24th week in the ordinary time of year B.
Fr. Emmanuel Nwokeji.
