Nov 16 – Homily – Fr Matthias: What Good Have You Done?
Homily #141116n ( 22min) Play - Fr. Matthias comments on today's gospel, telling us that while we don't all receive the same amount of grace, we all do have the obligation to use what we have. Father gives us the three conditions to merit: 1) we have to do a good work while in the state of grace, 2) we need to do the works appropriate to our state in life, and 3) it needs to be done out of a supernatural motive, that is, out of love for God. And he gives us one final exhortation: We are responsible for our actions, we were given our free will to use it, and Our Lord will ask us "What good have you done?"
