Homily / Are we too indifferent or caught up in life to reach out? Gone are the days when we used to have our names written on the pews. However, are there some of us who still have our names on the pews, figuratively. We can see that this particular crisis of faith will cause some to look desperately for life and meaning. Some of those dear ones will show up at our door. They will be looking for a welcoming pew, or seat. They will be looking for someone to welcome them.
There are 2 invitations and 2 yes' that God awaits for from you.
- The first yes is God's invitation to all of us - that first yes is a yes to the forgiveness of sins and a yes to the gift of eternal life.
- The second yes is to help others hear and respond to the same invitation that God has for them.
The grace is present today, to be able to say yes to God, yes, and yes.
