Homily (Reflection) for Monday after Epiphany of the Lord (07th January, 2019)
1Jn 3:22-4:6;Ps 2:7-8.10-11. (R. v. 8);
In today’s gospel Jesus began His Galilean ministry with the central message: “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near” (Matt 4:17).
Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and curing every disease and every sickness among the people. All the sick, those who were afflicted with various diseases and pains, demoniacs, epileptics, and paralytics, were brought to Jesus and He cured them (Matt 4:24).
Jesus calls on all of us to repent and also to bring our problems, disappointments, heartbreaks, joys, sorrows, and so on to Him. He has come to reconcile us with the Father and also to take our infirmities and our diseases away, cf. Eph 2:16; Matt 8:17. We ought to listen to Jesus and be healed of our infirmities, cf. Lk 5:15.
Bible Reading: Is 53:1, 3-7.
Thought for today: Come to Jesus.
Let us pray: God give us the grace to listen to your word and be healed of our infirmities – Amen.
