Homily of the Day

Jesus Christ is the cornerstone that the builders rejected. And even today, the world still rejects him. We may say that this is not true, but when we think about what society is saying and preaching, we realize that, indeed, it is teaching the opposite of Christian values.

The world says that the more earthly success we achieve, the more we gain in value as individuals. We don’t need God to reach the pinnacle of power, it is just through our own hard work and luck and stepping on others’ toes. As humans we have the freedom of choice to decide what is right and what is wrong, but if we value God we will look to Him for what is right and wrong, and to rely on Him to take care of our needs. To be a Christian is to put God first in our lives. This means continuously seeking His righteousness and totally relying on Him. We value God when we acknowledge that He knows better than we do on what we need in our lives.
