Your Catholic Sunday Homily

From the Desk of Father Mark, Your Catholic Sunday Homily Minute

My Dear People,

How Are You Doing With That Resolution
About Reading More Sacred Scripture?

Isaiah speaks about God's precious love for Israel. It is through Israel that God chose to reveal His glory. All the tribes will be one in God someday. The Father will raise them up, and make them a light to the nations. If we look at the Israel today, one might ask..."How can this be?" With all of the hatred, violence and fighting presently escalating in the middle East, where is the PEACE God speaks about in the Old Testament?

What God says, God does. Nothing is IMPOSSIBLE for Almighty God. When the nations turn away from sin, and reach out for the Lord, it is then that God will make manifest His Divine Plan. What would have to happen to make all nations cry out unto the Lord? The hints again come from the Old Testament.

If you have never read through the Bible, now would be an excellent time to begin. With the New Year still fresh, make a resolution to add the reading of daily scripture to your agenda. Come to know the goodness of the Lord through His Holy Word.

Entrusting you to the care of Our Lady,

Fr. Mark
