On today’s homily…..
I just felt the homily given today by one of our Priest, on the Gospel Luke 13:22-30 was not complete somehow. I mean the Priest’s message in our Church that God does not punish but rather has only infinite love for us and is calling us to receive him is only one aspect.
I on the other hand think God allows us to experience the consequences of our actions or inactions, so in essence that is the real punishment. Also the Gospel has two dimensions to it, one is already mentioned by the Priest today and the other I feel was about the unrepentant who presumed in God’s mercy. These are the ones who reject God’s call to come back into his loving care and choose instead to live in sin, thinking that there would always be time for repentance. However their time had run out.
I could be wrong……
What do you think?
