Twenty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time (Homily)
August 23, 2015 5:00 pm · Father David Mbimadong
We come to the last part of John Chapter 6, the discourse on The Bread of Life. But before we begin, I want us to look at Ephesians Chapter 5, if you can make time as families. When you go home, in the course of the week, find time to read the whole of Ephesians Chapter 5. It speaks about the family. Today what we heard from Ephesians Chapter 5 is about the man and his wife.
It says the woman should respect and obey they man. It also says the man should love his wife as he would love himself. So when you discuss this or you go home and there are problems, and your husband is telling you, Christ says you should respect me because I am the head of the family. You also say, but Christ says you should love me as you love yourself.
