Fr. Rick’s Two Minute Homily for Monday 2nd Week in Advent
December 11, 2023, Luke 5:17-26 https://bible.usccb.org/bible/readings/121123.cfm

It is God’s mercy that moves a person to acts of compassion.
Anthropologist Margaret Mead asked a student, “What is the earliest sign of civilization in any given culture? She did not respond with a tool, a weapon, or a piece of pottery. She answered, “A healed femur. (How Civilization Began – www.treatsforthesoul.org. https://www.treatsforthesoul.org/how-civilization-began/)

How can that be? She said that a healed femur shows someone cared for the injured person. The first sign of civilization in any culture is the evidence of compassion.

It is God’s mercy that moves a person to acts of compassion.
The friends of the person with paralysis had this mercy in their hearts for their friend. It was this same mercy that Jesus had in his heart to forgive the paralytic his sins and heal him.

Let us call upon Jesus and bring that person to Him in prayer so he may minister to the whole person to everything he knows they need. As we first choose to pray for them, Jesus will use our legs, hands, and voice to minister to them in His Name.

Gospel Challenge:
The friends of the person with paralysis were asking for healing and received much more. What will Jesus do for our friends through us after we ask him?

Love Your Neighbor
Please join me in praying for all baptized Catholics to be faithful to Jesus in the Holy Mass every weekend. Hail Mary, full of grace…

Mother Mary, I am yours now and forever. Through you and with you, I always want to belong completely to Jesus.

Peace be with you.
