Fr. Tony Kadavil Sunday (Aug 18)

Fr. Tony: Homilies for Aug 12-18 (OT 20 & Assumption) 


Synopsis: OT XX [C] Sunday (Aug 18) on Luke 12: 49-53 (L-13)

Let us learn to appreciate the contemporary prophets in the Church: The Jesuit Cardinal Avery Dulles, writing about the role of prophecy in the modern church communities in his book Models of the Church, remarks: “Christianity is not healthy unless there is room in it for prophetic protest against abuses of authority.” God continues to send such prophets to every parish community and it is the duty of the bishop, pastor and parish council to listen to the well-intended and constructive criticisms of such Jeremiahs.
