Homilies/Reflections

Owe no one anything, except to love one another
By REV. FR. SAMUEL FREDERICK

Rom. 13:8-10, Lk. 14:25-33. What Jesus speaks of in today's Gospel is practical mysticism: nobody undertakes a task without anticipating the cost and ensuring that one has enough resources to realize the task and hence, the same should apply to our “Life Project.” If God is our ultimate goal and eternal life is our highest hope, should it not be eminently practical to recognize the cost and ensure that all our energies are directed towards God as the highest motive and love of our lives? Every other love will be relative from the perspective of our primary and ultimate love, love of God. Paul underlines the same in today's first reading.

The call to love is a necessary call that gives us the confident to be free from debt. The sublime example of Christ, who died for His love for us and commanded that we should do the same, points the way for us. Such total love of God and neighbour even in challenging moments is an important prerequisite to following Jesus. Hence, Paul says: Avoid getting into debt, except the debt of mutual love. If you love your fellow men you have carried out your obligations.

May the love of God in us overcome all things and may there never be a limit to our faith, hope and endurance! Amen!! Good morning, It is well with you!!!
