Dear Synod Fathers, Strive to Learn at the School of Mary – Oct 08 – Homily – Fr Andre

Views 507


In the homily on Oct 08, 2019 (Tuesday of the 27th Week of Ordinary Time), Fr. Andre comments on the Gospel account of the different approaches of Jesus’ friends, the sisters Martha and Mary. Jesus clearly spoke: Mary chose the better part. As the Synod gets under way, Father suggests that Church leaders should strive to learn at the school of Mary, not only from the example of Martha’s sister, but first and foremost from Jesus’ Mother, the preeminent member of the Church.

A preoccupation on "pastoral need" without sufficient contemplation at Jesus' feet in his Real Presence in the Blessed Sacrament risks failing to comprehend Jesus' words to Martha: "There is need of only one thing." Father urges the bishops to lead the Church on their knees, in Eucharistic adoration, to hear the voice of Jesus needed for the proper guidance of the Church.

Ave Maria!
