Friday of the Twenty-ninth Week in Ordinary Time
October 27, 2023
Bible Reading: Luke 12:54-59
“… why do you not know how to interpret the present time?”
Most often a homily will focus upon one or more aspects of the day’s Gospel Reading. Less often, the homily will focus upon the First Reading (or the Second Reading, if there is one). Very rarely will the day’s Responsorial Psalm be incorporated into the homily. Least of all, among the Scripture passages proclaimed during the Liturgy of the Word, is the simple Gospel acclamation. Have you ever heard a homily that focuses upon the Gospel acclamation, or even cites it?
