Homily for Sunday October 6 2019
Welcome to the 27th Sunday in the ordinary time of year C. Irrespective of our ugly situations, bad conditions, social injustice every where and passiveness of the leaders, we are called to keep on believing in God and not to be discouraged.
Luke 17:5-10 invites us to be true faithful followers of Jesus Christ. When the going gets tough the toughs get going. The apostles had heard much from their master Jesus Christ. Since faith is a supernatural gift of God which enable us to believe and practice what God has revealed without doubting. The apostles need this faith to remained steadfast and surmount all their difficulties and impossibilities.
Thus, doing what we ought to do as good works increase our faith. But doing what we ought to do and expecting reward could deflate our faith when the reward is not spontaneous.
As we make effort to do good even when the environment is not peacefully coexistence, may God increase our faith.
Happy Sunday. Fr Emmanuel Nwokeji.
