Pope Francis: Charisms are bestowed upon the faithful for the benefit of the whole community

(CNA/EWTN News) Pope Francis dedicated his weekly general audience on October 1 to the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit, saying that rather than making us better than others, they commission us to serve our brothers and sisters. “A charism is more than a talent or personal quality. It is a grace, a gift that […]

Our Zeal for God Is Consuming Us!

Twenty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time “My soul is thirsting for you, O Lord my God” (Psalm 63:2). Gentle in tone and unadorned in expression, the human yearning for God, as reflected in the antiphon of this Sunday’s Responsorial Psalm, belies the zeal and vigour simmering deep in the psalmist’s heart. In fact, his longing for […]

Stay Awake!

Jesus said to his disciples: “Stay awake! For you do not know on which day your Lord will come. Be sure of this: if the master of the house had known the hour of night when the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and not let his house be broken into. So too, […]

Blinded by Worldly Glory

Jesus said: “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites. You pay tithes of mint and dill and cummin, and have neglected the weightier things of the law: judgment and mercy and fidelity. But these you should have done, without neglecting the others. Blind guides, who strain out the gnat and swallow the camel! “Woe […]

Prosperity as a Disease

Jesus said to his disciples: “Amen, I say to you, it will be hard for one who is rich to enter the Kingdom of heaven. Again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for one who is rich to enter the Kingdom of […]

Was Jesus sent only for the lost sheep of Israel?

Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time Whenever I read this passage in the gospel of Matthew, I always wonder if Jesus knew already the answer of the woman. Theologically He should, for He is true God and true Man. Therefore His refusal to attend the woman’s plea at the beginning is not a lack of sympathy […]

Greatest in the Kingdom of God

The disciples approached Jesus and said, “Who is the greatest in the Kingdom of heaven?” He called a child over, placed it in their midst, and said, “Amen, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will not enter the Kingdom of heaven. Whoever becomes humble like this child is the […]

O you of little faith, why did you doubt?

Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time One couldn’t help but notice the similarities of the experiences of Elijah and Jesus’ disciples as described in the first and the Gospel readings. In both cases, men experienced frightening scenes – Elijah experienced “a strong and heavy wind”, “crushing rocks”, “earthquake”, “fire”; the disciples’ boat was “being tossed about […]

Nothing can separate us from the love of God

Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time Can you imagine how Jesus felt when He heard that His cousin John was persecuted and beheaded? He must have felt distressed and lonely. And naturally, He would relate that to His own final path to Calvary. So,“He withdrew in a boat to a deserted place by Himself.” (Matthew 14:13) […]
