Holy Mass: Receiving Christ - Homily for October 8


Readings for Sunday, October 8 / 27th Sunday of Ordinary Time: Isaiah 5:1-7  |  Psalm 80  |  Philippians 4:6-9  |  Matthew 21:33-43

Our Gospel today tells us of the consequences of not receiving Christ as we ought. Let us give some reflection to the manner of receiving Holy Communion at Mass, both the exterior and the interior, that Our Lord might find in us a welcoming soul to His Presence.
