Fr. John Mary’s homily for Sunday, November 15th discusses our hope in God’s Divine Mercy and Justice. Scriptures often refer to the “Coming of the Lord” and how that should be our guide and focus during this life to give us Hope. Although we often witness evil and injustices seem to triumph during our earthly life, our strength is in God’s Divine Mercy and Justice.
- The new testament speaks often on the coming of the Lord. God wants us to know that justice is coming.
- Souls have divine justice in hell, purgatory and heaven, but there is not much justice in our world today.
- The Lord reminds us that He is coming as a means to strengthen our hope and that evil will be punished.
- Jesus reveals to us that after His coming, He will separate the good from the evil.
- Story of an ordained priest who witnessed his judgement and was saved from hell through the intervention of the Blessed Mother.
- Seek God’s will and you will be ready to face His judgement without any fear.
All throughout the New Testament and in today’s reading from Thessalonians, St. Paul speaks of the coming of the Lord. As Christians, we see and face many injustices in this world, but have our hope in the final judgement which will bring justice to the world.
As the coming of the Lord signals the coming of justice in the world, this message brings hope to Christians who are trying to follow God’s will in their life. Jesus gives us an opportunity to seek His will and trust in His mercy so that we may be prepared for our individual final judgement.
