HOMILY: Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Tremendously Loved by God
Brothers and sisters, today we are invited to recognize that we are valuable, irreplaceable, and loved by a loving Father. Despite our many shortcomings and insecurities, God loves us very much. He will not forsake us. There are even times when He will turn our weakness into strength. Never forget that when we are afraid, when we stumble and hesitate, God’s word assures us that He is right there beside us gently reaching out His hand to help us up — “Do not be afraid.” So, hang in there! Don’t give up!
