Homily (Reflection) for Monday of the Twenty-First Week in Ordinary Time (I) (23rd August, 2021) on the Gospel


1Thess 1:1-5.8-10;

Ps 149:1-6.9. (R. v.4);

Matt 23:13-22.

Topic: Woe to you....

In today’s gospel, Jesus summarized the scribes and the Pharisees as hypocrites. He denounced them and also proclaimed woes on them. Their sins include locking people out of the kingdom of heaven, suffering so much to make a convert only to make him/her worse child of hell than themselves, and also feeding the people with false teachings.

Ensure that no one is prevented from following God through your actions, words, and omissions. Every person can be a good channel for the salvation of others. Saint John warns, “Look to yourselves, that you may not lose what you have worked for, but may win a full reward” (2Jn 1:8). There will be woes to anyone who fails to be a channel of salvation to others.

Bible Readings: 2Jn 7-11.

Thought for today: You are a channel of salvation.

Let us pray: Lord, help us to be your sincere children – Amen.
