Homily by +Bp. Raymundo Abogatal
First Reading: Genesis 2: 18-24
Second Reading: Hebrews 2 : 10-13
Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 8 :1-9
Gospel Reading: Mark 10 : 2-16
Based on His word in Genesis 2:18-24 , God’s plans for human race are as follows:
*God’s intention for humans is to marry.
*God reminded us of the unbreakable union of Adam and Eve.
*Man and woman are created for each other and no one else.
*Husband and wife should be of one flesh.
2. Parents are to draw their children closer to God.
*Parents are to bring their children to God for them to know and understand the healing power of God spiritually and physically.
*God is delighted with the children and demonstrated His love as an upper room for everyone.
Bishop then emphasized that matters should be settled between husband and wife, parents and children. First, he encouraged the parents to ask for their children’s’ forgiveness. He likewise instructed the children to come to their parents to ask for their forgiveness.
The homily highlight is praying over all families and individuals for healing of relationship among the families.
