Homily for the 28th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year C
Theme: We owe God thanksgiving
By: Fr Emmanuel Nwokeji
Homily for Sunday October 13 2019
Welcome to the 28th Sunday in the ordinary time of the year C.
We are presented with vital message especially from the first reading and the Gospel. We are partners in seeking of common good. People of the same party political or spiritual irrespective of their gender, status, circumstances, condition, culture, language and religion are willing to stay together just to achieve their common need. Also, all created in the image and likeness of God are in need of God. God is our common need. Therefore, we ought to be one and stay together like the ten lepers comprising of the Jews and Samaritan.
As contingent beings who have both beginning and end. There is a necessary Being responsible for our own being. This necessary Being is God from whom all that is good come from. If we see ourselves as thinking being, definitely, we graduate into thanking being. Every thanking being is a humble being, and only the humble of heart finds the greatness of God.
As many people are owing us “thank-you” for one thing or the other, so we are owing God thanksgiving. It is our duty to be thanking God always.
As we think and reflect the goodness of God in our lives and families, we have no option than to remained thankful to God. May God continue to take delight in all that concerns us.
Fr Emmanuel Nwokeji is with you.
