Homily for Wednesday of the 3rd Week of Easter

The deacon Philip shared the gospel with the people of Samaria and was warmly welcomed. In Luke’s first volume, Jesus tried to speak to the Samaritans, but they rejected Him because He was heading for Jerusalem. But later on, after hearing it from the lips of the cheerful and open-hearted Philip, they welcomed His gospel with great joy. God’s word can blossom even where it was first rejected. Even though we may turn from the Lord at times, He never turns His back on us. Indeed, we have Jesus’ own word that “I will not reject anyone who comes to me.”

Easter celebrates the total faithfulness of God to His Son Jesus, and to all of us. This encourages us to trust in Him; even after we have, in some ways, rejected Him, He will never reject us. Though we often fail to respond to the grace of Jesus Christ, He still gives Himself to us as the Bread of Life and continues to promise that if we come to Him, we will never hunger, and if we believe in Him, we will never thirst.+
