Homily for the 31st Sunday in Ordinary Time Year C

Theme: God’s love

Homily for Sunday November 3 2019

We are still alive because of God’s love. Many at times, we question the ugly incidence in our lives, our bad situation, ridiculous facticity of our humanity, and nomenclature of our being. All these states of life do not negate the love and salvation of God for us. Thus, our existence till present is the manifestation God’s love.

The same love of God is in search of us, tilling us away from evil circle and occasions of sin into spiritual circle and occasions of conversion.

Today, Jesus who comes to give life and save the lost encountered Zacchaeus. This encounter brought salvation and, restitution which was a proof of conversion.

As we encounter Jesus today in the Word of God and Eucharist, may our way of lives become a proof of our own conversion. Happy Sunday and welcome to the 31st Sunday in the ordinary time of the year C.
