HOMILY FOR FRIDAY OF THE 4TH WEEK OF EASTER
THEME: Do not let your hearts be troubled!
BY: Rev Fr Oselumhense Anetor (Uromi Diocese)
HOMILY FOR FRIDAY MAY 13 2022
Acts 13:26-33; John 14:1-6
The opening words of Jesus in the gospel reading of today are very comforting. I know many of us woke up this morning in distress, wondering what the day would bring. The times are hard; temptations everywhere. No security of lives and property; no money for food and fees. No jobs, no fruit of the womb, no understanding or peace in the family, no strength for prayers and sustained spirituality, and so on.
But Jesus Christ says to believe in God, and in him. This is awesome! Jesus wants us to be where He is. He reminds us that He has indeed prepared a place for us, so we can be sure that heaven will not run out of accommodation options. Friends, we may not know how to reorder our lives; we may be confused as to how to stand up again and carry on; we may even be unwilling to try. But Jesus says He is the way. First things first. We must purify our hearts and make a firm and sincere resolution to follow Jesus through the thick and thin of our daily lives.
Good morning dear. God bless your weekend ahead.
