10.Sunday in Ordinary Time Year B Me 3,20-35

In today’s Gospel, we see scribes from Jerusalem, that is, some more excellent experts, who commented on Jesus as follows: “Beelzebub” Truly” possesses him “and: “be cast “out evil spirits by the power of the prince of evil spirits.” He called them and spoke to them in parables:”  oared he” and us appeals to their ability to think logically.  “How can” Satan cast out Satan? If a kingdom is divided within, such a kingdom cannot stand, and if a house is broken within, it will not be able to stay rule ” Say to yourself: All sins and blasphemies with which they blaspheme will be forgiven people. However, whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit is not forgiven forever but is guilty of an eternal sin. Because they said: “A” uncle, “a spirit possesses him.” “
Today, we encounter a particular category – unforgivable sins. Lord Jesus characterizes this group of sins as blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. St. Thomas Aquinas says this is a sin “u” paid” “because it excludes that which achieves forgiveness of sins. O, it’s a matter of someone imprudently saying something terrible about the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is Essential Good, Essential Good, and Evident Good, Undeniably Good, and therefore, to blaspheme the Holy Spirit means to stand against Good consciously, Good inset Truly. Blaspheming the Holy Spirit means rejecting God as God, rejecting Salvation. 

Man has in his soul the ability to recognize his Lord and God. Man can reach the Truth through logical thinking and the Supreme Moral Good, God, through conscience. I once read a book that described the evangelization of the Pacific Islands. The natives worshiped a God called Tiki. According to the book yearbook, they knew right away that he was our Tiki when the missionaries started telling them about Jesus. However, if a person denies that good is good, he feigns ignorance, which suits his sinfulness and does not suffer from it. 

The operation of the Spirit of Truth, which has the saving goal of “s” owing “t” e world what sin is,” ” meets “” man who is in such a state with internal resistance, as if with the obscurity of conscience, with the state of the soul that has hardened in why it freely decided. If a person consciously chooses to reject the calcified conviction of sin that the Holy Spirit brings, he also denies the coming of the Comforter. Scripture usually calls this “h” redness of heart.” Blaspheme ” y” against the Holy Spirit consists precisely in the radical refusal to accept this forgiveness, of which He is the giver and presupposes true conversion.

Suppose the Lord Jesus says blasphemy against the Holy Spirit cannot be forgiven in this life or the next. In that case. In that case, it is because this unforgiving “n” SS” “causes Conn to be filled with “r” pent” “excellent,” ” he is nice is” with a decisive refusal to convert. It is a hiding from God. Blaspheming the Holy Spirit means refusing to tap into the springs of Redemption that Jesus opened with his death. Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is a sinful state from which sinful actions spring. In it, man claims the right to remain in evil – in any sin – and thus refuses redemption. Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit prevents a person from leaving the prison of his sin, in which he has entirely voluntarily closed himself. In our times, this attitude of mind and heart perhaps corresponds to the “l” SS of “s” sensitivity for God.” ” T is v ” and to hope that the sensitivity for the sin against man and human values ​​will be strengthened if there is no sensitivity for the offense committed against God.

In today’s is blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, an unwillingness to recognize the Truth, to acknowledge the good that has been revealed in the person of Jesus Christ. That is why the church does not stop begging God for mercy so that the correctness of people’s beliefs and their healthy sensitivity to good and evil is not dulled. Correctness and sensitivity of conscience are deeply connected with the inner action of the Spirit of Truth. In this light, the warnings of St. Apostle: says that the sin that the Gospel calls “blaspen” “against the Holy Spirit” “owes no”,” row in the world, but instead that it resides in human souls and makes room for the openness of conscience, which is necessary for the saving action of the Holy Spirit.”
