February 4, 2018 5th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Homily by Deacon Dr. Terrence R. Chisolm

Deacon told us that no one is immune to pain and suffering. So much is backwards: up is down, right is wrong, wrong is right. If you are not anchored by strong truth, you can find living in a daze of confusion. Even Job from our first reading had great pain and suffering, even though he was a faithful servant of God. He still trusted in God, but he still reached a point when he called out to God, doing what so many of us may do, asking God, "Why me? Why am I having so much pain and suffering." In the Gospel, many people are coming to Jesus for Him to relieve their pain and suffering.
