Homily Holy Thursday Evening Mass.

Theme: Do this in memory of me

My brothers and sisters in Christ, in order to prepare ourselves to commemorate the glorious Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ on Easter Day, today, we are celebrating Holy Thursday. This Feast solemnly commemorates the institution of the Holy Eucharist. During the history of the Holy Catholic Church, this special Feast has been associated with the reconciliation of penitents, the consecration of the holy oils, the washing of the feet, the commemoration of the Blessed Eucharist and Institution of Ministerial Priesthood. Holy Thursday is the night on which our Lord Jesus celebrated the Last Supper with His disciples. What went through their mind on that night, we will never know. We can only imagine. What we do know is that Jesus knew that His hour had come to depart from the world and to go to the Father.

While Jesus had been preparing His disciples for some time, hinting to them that He was about to be betrayed and crucified, the disciples did not appear to perceive what Jesus was telling them. Remember, they were fishermen by origin. They had barely any education except that they knew about boats and nets. Before celebrating this last meal with his disciples, Jesus washed their feet saying that “as I have loved you, you also love one another” John 13: 34. The significance of this is that God intends to make sure that love and service are at the heart of his followers. Like the rest of us the disciples had been more impressed with his miracles, infinite wisdom and His endless knowledge but what was of value was love. While they affirmed that Jesus was the Son of God and the Messiah, their actions at the time of his arrest will clearly tell us that they were very weak in human nature and only love could strengthen. Today our love for one another must rise and shine.

Theme: Fidelity leads to victory

In most areas of the world, a visit from the Roman Pontiff would be received with great anticipation. As soon as the scheduled visit is announced, elaborate preparations begin, sometimes as early as one or two years in advance. Certain cities have chosen to build a vast meeting center to accommodate the thousands who will come to acknowledge the visit of one so important. Roads are repaired, landscapes are refurbished with fresh plantings of flowering trees, bushes and plants.

In Africa however preparations are less complex, but no less taxing. For example, when Popes Paul VI and John Paul II visited Uganda, the roadways were edged with freshly cut matoke or banana plants. Considering the fact that matoke is the main staple of the daily diet in Uganda, the people had paid great tribute to these Pontiffs in cutting down and offering their very sustenance food to welcome them. Colorful flower petals arranged in various designs decorated the pathways and the people turned out in their Sunday best, stood along both sides of the roads shouting their welcome in each place the Pope passed.

Fifth Sunday of Lent Year B

Theme: Wounded healers

A missionary went to Sudan to preach the good news, he encountered untold hardships. During his seven-year mission, he suffered hunger and privation; for seventeen months he was held in Jaffa Prison and was subjected to incredible abuse and torture. As a result, his body was scarred for life from the beatings and by the iron shackles and chains he was forced to wear. Throughout many sufferings he remained undeterred in his resolve. When he was miraculously released from prison, he asked the civil authorities for permission to resume his work for the sake of the gospel. With indignation, the man in charge denied him request, saying, ‘my people are not foolish enough to listen to anything you say but I fear they may be impressed by your scars and thereby be convinced to turn to your religion!’ As the days of Lent flow away, we are leading nearer and nearer to the culmination of this holy season. The Church, through the liturgical readings, has kept us alert to what Jesus is saying to us. At this point we are invited to be once again impressed by the scars of Jesus and thereby be more deeply convinced of the saving merciful love of God for all people.

Theme: Lord, make me remember

Having arrived at the halfway in our annual Lenten journey we are invited today to look back on what has transpired this far and to press onward for what is yet to come. The saying goes that “those who do not remember the past are condemned to relive it” cf. George Santayana The Life of Reason, 1905. It is most sure that this same understanding of the human experience prompted the Chronicles to lead their contemporaries through a quick overview of their past performance as a people.

The word of God today invites us to reflect on the transcendent God who has chosen to be friendly to humankind. The demands of the law and authentic worship featured in our readings should be understood not as orders that burden us but as a divine gift and gracious guidance. Rather than think of the commandments just as rules set forth by a potentate, perhaps it is more appropriate to regard them as words to live by. Indeed, in both Hebrew/debarim and Greek/decalogue the commandments are not called rules but words which have been offered within the context of an ongoing dialogue also known as the covenant. God’s commandment is always a word addressed by a person to a person. It is only under a regime of dialogue and communion that it becomes livable.
