My Sunday Homily

Publié le 19 Novembre 2017

Man gives lot of importance to the appearance than of being. In the first reading we heard the  fear of the Lord is more important than beauty. Beauty is an appearance discovered simply by the eyes, by the way the person looks at the other. If the man has not discovered the source of this beauty, he will be mistaken by this appearance. It is necessary to be able to apply this philosophy of the life, in the daily life, including the social, spiritual and personal life, particularly to apply it in the rigor to the relational life.

The fear of the Lord was born in this divine discovery, the PERSON in the person. Respect for the other, our love and forgiveness are closely related to this PERSON, not to the person we see or relate. The true fear of the Lord, St. Augustine tells us, is the fear that we are not far from divine love. What is the fruit of the fear of the Lord? The psalmist tells us, 'You will see the happiness of Jerusalem all the days of your life. A happy man, too, must be a free man before God. This man will remain as a light of the world, a reflection of the light of Christ.

Saint Paul tells us that we are the children of the Light and therefore remain vigilant. This vigilance helps us to discover the gifts that God has given us, including worldly richness and most importantly the finality of all the gifts of the Lord.  The Gospel of the day reminds us of the mission that God has entrusted to us, each and every one of us, according to our capacity.

If we look at the story of the day, we will discover that all these servants were chosen from among others. The last knew neither his election, nor his capacity. To advance in our life, we must know ourselves and all the gifts that God has given us.

The Master does not judge this lazy servant by his own will. The judgment was already made by this servant himself. We have an impression that Master was hard. In truth it is the servant himself was harsh towards the other and declared his judgment. The master has only performed all that the servant has spoken.

My friends this week is an opportunity for us to recognize our talents that God shares with us. Let us discover our talents and use them for the goods of ourselves and also for the goods of others, so that one day we may participate in the joy that God offers us. Man always seeks happiness and today God offers us a way to achieve it. Let us give thanks to the Lord and bless him, for He is good.
