Fr. Rick’s Two Minute Homily for Monday – 01-17-2022

Monday 2nd Week in Ordinary Time 2022  

 Mark 2:18-22 https://bible.usccb.org/bible/readings/011722.cfm  

A NEW CAR, SWEET. A NEW HOUSE, AWESOME. HOW ABOUT A NEW APPROACH?

Anyone who bought a new car notices the “new car smell.” The only problem, the smell doesn’t last too long. Even the new feeling wears off after a while. Religion can get ho-hum as well. Jesus sensed God’s people lost the freshness of their relationship with God. For many people, rituals became old hat, something you just did.

Jesus came to breathe new life, His life into all the things we do to stay close to God and each other. For example, he told us, no one sews a piece of un-shrunken cloth on an old cloth. The new will tear away from the old, and the tear will get worse. Did you or anyone you know have a joint replacement? You must remove the old to put in the new.

Relationships need a shot in the arm from time to time, including marriages. What used to work doesn’t work anymore. So, what makes a “new cloth old?” Simply, our human love has limitations like the car, the house, and things created wear out. 

Let’s not give up if our relationship with someone is wearing out. Don’t be afraid to try something new. Do your family relationships need a boost? What can you do differently at meals to stimulate the conversation, so you know each other that day

How about the Lord? Try praying with your heart and not just your head when you come into the Lord’s presence. Tell Him what is really bugging you, or tell Him something you are grateful for. Let your feelings be your prayer. A new approach can change everything. PS don’t forget to pray before meals.

IGNIITE THE FIRE
