Daily Mass Homily: Tuesday, November 13th, 2012
Today we hear St. Paul writing to specific individuals. He addresses older men, older women, younger women and younger men. That hits pretty much everyone.
This is a specific example of a general truth about the Scriptures—they are written directly to each one of us. God had each of us in mind when He inspired men to write His Word down. Unlike a novel written by a human author with a general audience in mind, God’s infinite knowledge was able to have each reader from all times to speak to.
We give thanks to God for His gift of the Scriptures. Particularly here at Mass—the best place to hear from God’s Word—we listen as He speaks to us individually.
