HOMILY FOR THE FEAST OF ST. MATTHEW, APOSTLE
THEME: Living lives worthy of our vocation!
BY: Rev Fr Oselumhense Anetor (Uromi Diocese)
HOMILY FOR WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 21 2022
This is perhaps the most difficult advise to put into practice. While it is true that many apostles and disciples of Christ are doing their best today, there are still those who have become messengers without a message. They have completely forgotten why God called and chose them. In their confusion, they have become prey to the devil, and a menace to the flock of God.. If we fall in this category, God wants us back…
Though no one is called perfect, all are called to perfection. We see this clearly in Mathew’s call. Jesus called this tax collector and sinner; came to his home, sat amongst his friends, and ate with them. Jesus Christ is interested in souls that have lost the way; souls that are sick with worldly distractions and desires. With this in mind, let us approach God’s throne of Mercy today, ask pardon for our many sins, and begin living lives much more worthy of our vocations.
Good morning dear. God bless your day ahead. St Mathew, pray for us sinners, that we may become righteous.
