HOMILY OF FRIDAY 4TH OF JUNE 2021
R1:- Tobit 11:5-15
Accl:- 2 Timothy 14:23
Gosp:- Mark 12:35-37
THEME: WHEN AN ANGEL BECOME A MAID.
We must learn how to treat our house help. Some of our maids or coworkers are on assignment. Azarius(Angel Raphael)was one of such messengers to the family of Tobit.
Though a hired servant, Raphael diligently carried out his divine mission for the house of Tobit. If Tobias has disobeyed him, or treated him like a rag, the story would have been different. Among other works, he delivered Sarah from the jealous demon, Asmodeus. He made her marriage with Tobias a success. And brought Back the sight of Tobit.
Those who treat their maid with disdain or maltreat those who work for them may miss their lifetime opportunity.
Let us learn to be good, welcoming and hospitable. God uses man to bless man.
May nothing of our characters scare away the agents sent to actualize our life destiny. Amen
