28th Sunday in Ordinary Time
October 15, 2017
On this mountain the LORD of hosts
will provide for all peoples
a feast of rich food and choice wines,
juicy, rich food and pure, choice wines.
On this mountain he will destroy
the veil that veils all peoples,
the web that is woven over all nations;
he will destroy death forever.
The Lord GOD will wipe away
the tears from every face;
the reproach of his people he will remove
from the whole earth; for the LORD has spoken.
We see in today’s readings the rewards for those who put their trust in the Son of Man and obey his Words. Every word of the Bible and teaching of the Church is an invitation to each and every individual of this Earth. Jesus proclaimed the Gospel some believed but others insulted and persecuted him. Those who put their trust in him and did what he said received the Holy Spirit, the spirit of abundance who revealed all the secrets of the Kingdom of God. Our real rich food given to us is by the Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit is the product of obedience to the Word of God by repentance and faith in God in all circumstances. When a disciple of Christ filled with Holy Spirit all the emptiness or abundance becomes the same for him because he desires nothing but the love of God alone. In the second reading St. Paul says in every circumstance and in all things, I have learned the secret of being well fed and of going hungry. The secret is this: We can do all things in him who strengthens us, in fact he himself will be our fullness and our hope.
God is inviting us for the Wedding of his Son through the Gospel, those who receive or obey the Word of God, Jesus will make us his bride the Church and we the Church will not be two but one body mind and spirit. Thus, we become the heirs and Sons and daughters of God. If we repent and obey the Word of God, Jesus will destroy the ignorance or foolishness of our mind and destroy the Web of Technology, Force, Sanctions, fear, money over all nations and finally he will destroy the fear of death and reveal the Holy Spirit and the Secrets of the Kingdom of God. Then man will not live for the World but for the Lord. Love, Justice & Peace supersede the Power, money, name & fame. God himself will be the Lord and king of all. He himself will wipe every tear of his children. God is calling us to live in this Vocation in this World. To live in the House of the Lord all the days of our life and he will be our Shepherd who provides, protects, heals, comforts, counsels, teaches, guides us all the days of our life. May the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ
enlighten the eyes of our hearts,
so that we may know what is the hope
that belongs to our call.
