A homily buffet: 16th Sunday of Ordinary Time
Listen to the homily here.
This weekend I would like to share several “short” homilies
1.) “For your might is the source of justice; your mastery over all things makes you lenient to all.”
· Do you know, that last week the Servants of Shelter serve the homeless in our community and now they can support three families
· Our closing day will be on July 28th
o I believe that we are following Jesus Christ, our shepherd Pope Francis and our Bishop Paul Sirba
o By selling our property we open the doors to support those who are addicted, mental illness and detox
2.) Jesus gave several parables
· Good and bad seeds (or the wheat and tares)
o “…if you pull up the weeds you might uproot the wheat along with them. Let them grow together until harvests.”
o Good and evil exists together in the world
o This harvest is the end of our lives and Jesus is simply teaching that we can go in heaven or hell
o Where will you go?
· Mustard seed
o A small seed that can grow large
o We each begin with a small seed of faith
o Where is your soul?
o A small measure of yeast can leaven a whole batch
o What “yeast” will leaven your soul?With these several thoughts, take one of these to discern how God is speaking with you at Mass today
