Tuesday of the 15 week in ordinary time ‘b’

Mt 11:20-24


Sometimes we don’t appreciate what we have. There are people who think they are entitled to everything, even from their religion. I am entitled to have the church, the priests, the sacraments, and Jesus should always be ready to answer my prayers. I think we are so blessed to have such an easy access to the church and the sacraments, but because of that we tend to forget that there are places where a priest can visit only once a year and celebrate mass. There are places where Christians have no access to the holy sacraments at all and have no churches. They would do anything in order to be able to worship openly without the fear of being imprisoned or killed for their faith. We need to think about this and thank God for what we have, and not only thank Him but truly take advantage of all we have. There are many Catholics in our midst, as you know, who would rather choose a sport even over a Sunday mass, or some that don’t want to baptize a child or get married in the church. This is no longer in style, they may say. We have this open church, but I don’t feel like going. This is what Jesus is saying today: “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty deeds done in your midst had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would long ago have repented.” Sounds scary…
