Daily Mass Homily: Thursday, April 11th, 2013

           “We must obey God rather than men.”  These are the simple words of St. Peter having faced arrest and persecution for preaching the Gospel.
            Many think we are foolish for our steadfast beliefs in God’s laws.  Our Church is constantly in the news when she preaches the truth which does not always conform with the laws of our society.  Yet many fail to see the truth that we ought to obey God and not man.
            And we don’t obey an abstract bureaucrat.  We obey a loving Father who sent showers His love and mercy on us daily.  We obey God’s son who came as a man to die for us.  And we obey the Holy Spirit who contains to make all things new.
            We must obey God rather than men.”  Live out this call today.
