Readings for Today

For some people, hearing a priest introduce a homily by mentioning the topic of vocations, means a homily on becoming a priest, sister or brother. And yet, while these are worthwhile vocations, most of the time there is a “checking out.” Why? Because for many, they are married, already having answered their call from God. For others, they are too old. For still others, they are too young. It seems important for all Catholics to recall that we all have a vocation. And for many, today’s readings stress the importance of marriage, the hurt of divorce, and the pain of mourning the loss of a long time spouse.

Readings for Today

Some kids walk to school dodging landmines. In some parts of the world, parents are so desperate for their children’s safety, they will risk everything, taking a chance they can arrive in a better country. Some live in homes with domestic violence, sexual abuse and poverty. Others have struggles and stresses they keep hidden. While there is a popular religious song, “Let Peace Begin with Me”, in truth peace begins with God. The “peace which passes understanding” is the gift from Jesus that makes all peace possible.

Homily given at Christian Brothers College High School, Town and Country, Missouri, on September 27, 2018.

Readings for Today

Today’s first reading is almost like a graduation speech. Moses, talking to the people on the verge of entering the promised land, reminds them about the love and care of God. He reminds them that God is close to them. And while hearing that something is “for our own good” might bring back some bad memories from childhood, the moral code that is given to the people is indeed designed to make them more happy and fulfilled. It is also designed to help them to learn about priorities. By following God’s law, the people learn about the import of human dignity, prayer to God, and a grace filled life. Today, ask God to help you to discover those things that are really important.
