We Become Christ’s Home
4th Sunday After Easter 2022
“Do not let the sun go down on your anger.” In hearing these words, we must remember that this refers to unjust anger. The irascible passion of anger, when justified, is not only important but even necessary. This is why we are told to, “be angry, and sin not.”
The Spirit of God will magnify the Son by expressing all His goodness, holiness, and truth. This recalls to mind the words of the Blessed Virgin, “My soul magnifies the lord…”. Not only all of creation, but particularly the virtue and humility of God’s creatures expresses the His glory.
The children who receive Holy Communion today remind us all of the happiest day of our own lives, when we received the Holy Eucharist for the first time. Even those who have left the true Faith still admit that this was the happiest event of their lives.
The beautiful clothes of the children reflect the beauty of their souls, now prepared for welcome Christ. We are ready to become Christ’s home. He made us that He might come to us and also bring us to Himself. Every gift received is from Christ, who loves us more than any mother or father could.
People forget these basic truths and live lives of pleasure, pride, and greed. At the end of their lives they are filled with great fear, knowing they must leave everything behind. We must avoid the tricks of the devil and bad friends and remain always faithful to Our Lord in this Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.
