Homily (Reflection) for Wednesday of the Ninth Week in Ordinary Time (I) (07th June, 2017) on the Gospel
Tob 3:1-11.16-17;Ps 24:2-9. (R. v.1);
Topic: After this world.
The Sadducees came to Jesus in today’s gospel and asked whose wife a woman who married seven brothers according to the Law of Moses would be in the resurrection, cf. Deut 25:5-10. Jesus said to them,
Is not this the reason you are wrong, that you know neither the scriptures nor the power of God? For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven.
God lamented that His children are dying for want of knowledge, cf. Hos 4:6. This knowledge must be properly understood as that of God which helps us live lives worthy of Him, cf. Col 1:9-10. This is because “the wisdom of this world is folly with God” (1Cor 3:19a). No one should allow his/her mind to be blinded by the god of this world to prevent him/her from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, cf. 2Cor 4:4. This world is passing away, cf. 1Cor 7:31.
Bible Reading: 1Cor 3:1-19.
Thought for today: You are a child of resurrection, cf. Lk 20:36.
Let us pray: May God help us to know Christ and the power of His resurrection – Amen (Phil 3:10).
You are free to share this reflection with others if you consider it worthy.
