Our Citizenship Is In Heaven

23rd Sunday after Pentecost 2016

St. Paul’s Epistle to the Philippians informs us that there were enemies of the cross even at that time in the early Church.   One example is Tertullian who was considered a father of the church but lapsed into heretical ideas later in life.  So, the inference for us is that we must not think too highly of ourselves lest we fall, especially in today’s world where there are so many temptations to draw us away from the Faith.  In the Gospel reading we see the immense power of Faith by the fact that the woman who simply touched the hem of Our Lord’s garment was healed of a troublesome issue of blood.  Her ailment had existed for twelve years and it was her Faith that healed her.  So much so shall we be healed of our imperfections through touching Our Lord in the Holy Eucharist through Faith in His healing power.
