Homily (Reflection) for Tuesday of the Thirteenth Week in Ordinary Time (II) (30th June, 2020) on the Gospel
Amos 3:1-8; 4:11-12;
Ps 5:5-8. (R. v. 9);
Topic: We ought to pray.
Whenever someone is in difficulty, many things do come to mind. And many people do come with suggestions. Often, all including the worst mistakes one could do at the moment present themselves as best options.
In today’s gospel, as a result of the wind storm on the sea, water had begun to fill the boat in which Jesus was sleeping. Certainly, His disciples who were with Him must have thought of different options. Finally, they woke Jesus up saying, “Lord, save us! We are perishing!” Jesus rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a dead calm.
What about your own situation? Certainly, it is not impossible for God, cf. Matt 19:26; Mk 10:27; Lk 1:37.18:27. Stop fidgeting.
Never look for solutions in a way that will rob you eternity, cf. Matt 16:26. Jesus is still alive. You only need to wake Him through prayers, cf. Jas 5:13. We ought to pray constantly, cf. 1Thess 5:17. No one who believes in God will be put to shame, cf. Rom 10:11. Remember always “that in everything God works for good with those who love him, who are called according to his purpose” (Rom 8:28).
Bible Reading: Lk 18:1-14.
Thought for today: Never lose heart.
Let us pray: Lord, help us to be confident in you in all circumstances – Amen.
