Homily 144 – 8th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Finding Peace

We live in a very busy world. It seems that everywhere we look we find stress and anxiety. Today’s gospel is meant to provide us some time to calm down. Jesus asks us to consider the “Lilies of the Field” and how the flowers and other plants and animals don’t worry about anything that we normally do, and yet they are provided for by God. Our peace comes from knowing that God loves us and will provide for us, no matter what our present situation might be. If we can trust in our Heavenly Father, then we will have a peace that the world cannot give.
