Homily of the Day

Thursday of the Fourth Week of Lent

Jesus does what he can to convince those who don’t believe in him. That seems quite a daunting task, especially if those who are skeptical remain such in the face of incontrovertible evidence. Even the Scriptures have predicted his arrival, and yet there are those who remain immovable from their opinions.

Will Christ find us in the same frame of mind? Even as we witness the miracles of his love that still occur today, will Jesus find us doubting of his power and existence? Maybe, like the detractors of Christ, our hearts may have grown cold to the changes he wants to take place. He hopes to only improve our situation of sadness and despair.

May our hearts and minds remain open to the possibility of fully experiencing the magnificent grace of Jesus. Let us not ignore his blessings in our lives. In fact, more than him needing us to believe in him, it’s the other way around. For our sake and salvation, may we find ourselves clinging to his every word; the wisdom of our Savior.
