Homily for Thursday of the 17th Week in Ordinary Time
Jul 30th, 2020 by Fr. Jack
The message in today’s Gospel is similar to that of Tuesday’s Gospel: Throughout lifetime on earth, there will be both good and bad people; there will be both virtue and vice. This can be hard to take at times, and we may wonder why God allows it.
Jesus connects a common experience of the people when he compares the process of hauling a full net of fish ashore and separating the bad from the good to the angels doing so at the end of time.
Let us pray that we will have the patience and the hope that God will indeed separate the good from the bad at the end of time and let us do all that we can and must do to enter the kingdom of God.+
