Dead to Sin: Alive to God

Dead to Sin: Alive to God

Fr Michael Rasicci’s homily for the 4th Sunday after Pentecost, 06/25/2023–Mass on the Grass

In the Second Lesson today, (Romans 6: 1b-11) Paul reminds us that, in our baptism, we were made dead to sin. By accepting Christ through the same baptism, we share in His resurrection–and are Alive to God.

From the time of Christ up to and including today, Christians are making daily choices that often result in a martyr’s death. In today’s Gospel (Mark 10: 24-39) Christ tells His disciples, “Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.” We, too, make daily choices. We need to make sure we are choosing back to Christ and Christ’s actions and call rather than choosing the ways of sin.
