Homily for the Twenty-sixth Sunday of Ordinary Time (September 25, 2011)

Click here for the homily – 26th Sunday Ordinary Time

We want to be on Team Jesus because in the end we know that Team Jesus defeats Team Satan. In order to be a member of Team Jesus we can’t just declare we believe in Jesus. Nor can we assume that being nice to people will get us into heaven either. We must both believe in Jesus and allow His grace to work in our lives to transform our hearts so that we become truly holy, we become saints. Missing Sunday Mass is a mortal sin. Romans 3:23 says all have sinned. Therefore we too must have the humility to admit our sins and ask for forgiveness. I give some Biblical reasons for the new translation of the confiteor.
