Year B- 12th Sunday in ordinary time
35 On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, "Let us go across to the other side."
Inspiration of the Holy Spirit - From the Sacred Heart of Jesus"Why are you afraid? Have you still no faith?"
I still ask the same question to everyone, everywhere. Are you afraid to come to terms with the fact of my divinity? Does it make you feel ashamed that most people in the world reject me, and that you belong to Christianity which is attacked and put to the test from every angle?
Well, just as in this instance of my gospels, by having command over the powers of nature, I demonstrated once more my divine origin, that I am God the Son who came to do the will of my Heavenly Father. There arose many questions even among my own apostles, but they all had faith in me except for the one who betrayed me.
Miracles were performed in the Old Testament by some of the prophets who received power from above. I also gave powers to my apostles and disciples to do the same things that I did. In fact any man or woman who has faith in me will be capable of performing miracles in my name, because by my power, I can make you children of God. But no one before me or after me has had or will ever have the exclusive powers that were given to me to bear witness of my divinity by the truth of my word and through so many miracles.
Even though I performed so many miracles, many people chose not to believe in me; in fact they accused me of being possessed by an evil spirit and of performing my miracles through the devil.
I was hated, condemned and eventually put to death for bearing testimony to the truth. The truth is that I came from Heaven to do the will of my Heavenly Father.
His will is the salvation of mankind. But salvation cannot be accomplished by man alone, I the Word of God had to become a man to pay with my suffering and death for the sins of the world.
Therefore my divinity was always ahead of my humanity, and by divine grace, I was tempted many times but I always overcame the devil, the world and the flesh.
Let no one deceive you. I am the same yesterday, today and forever. I am the way, the truth and the life. I have come to give eternal life to those who follow me, I have come to free everyone who believes that I am the truth.
The world has always been walking in the wrong path; I have come to show you the way so that you may come to the eternal abode of my kingdom.
The world is dead in its sins. Life can only be found when repentance brings you to my forgiveness. I forgive the sins of the world and I give them my flesh and blood so that they can have eternal life.
Salvation can only come from the Savior of the world. I am your Lord and Savior. Remain in me and you will be saved.
Those who honor me will be honored in Heaven. On the other hand, those who attack me, those who attack my mystical body the Catholic Church and those who live to please their wicked ways, will be punished eternally for not believing in the truth. Unless they repent!
