Homily (Reflection) for Friday of the Thirtieth Week in Ordinary Time (II) (30th October, 2020) on the Gospel
Ps 110:1-6. (R.v.2);
Topic: Hunting faults.
While Jesus was going for a meal, people watched Him closely. Just before Him was a man with dropsy. Jesus asked the lawyers and Pharisees, “Is it lawful to cure people on the sabbath, or not?” They were silent. He took the man, healed him, and sent him away. Jesus again queried, “If any of you has a child, or an ox that has fallen into a well, will you not immediately pull it out on a sabbath day?” Again, they were silent.
Those who watched Jesus was only interested in finding faults. They could not answer any of the questions Jesus asked them.
What about us? We ought to go about doing good to everyone, cf. Acts 10:38; 1Tim 5:10. This is what we are called as children of God to do and never witch-hunting others. Even if one notices the fault of his/her brother/sister, one suppose to pray to God and never see it as an opportunity to deal with him/her, cf. 1Jn 5:16. We are all children of the same father and mother, cf. Mal 2:10; Rev 12:17.
Bible Reading: Jas 1:12-18; Lk 6:27-42.
Thought for today: We are to help and not to destroy.
Let us pray: May God help us to always look for ways to help and never to destroy – Amen.
