When, in our lives, does Jesus pass by?

Jesus "stood still" when attending Bartimaeous' cry. He will do the same for us when our cries are earnest and persistent, when our requests are humble and honest and most of all, when our faith in Him is strong and unwavering.

Who then was He really? Even nature obeyed Him!!

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 […]

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) […]

Parable of the New and Old Treasure

The Better Part

Reproaches to Unrepentant Towns

Jesus began to reproach the towns where most of his mighty deeds had been done, since they had not repented. “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty deeds done in your midst had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would long ago have repented in sackcloth and ashes. But […]

The Commissioning of the Twelve

Jesus said to his Apostles: “As you go, make this proclamation: ‘The Kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, drive out demons. Without cost you have received; without cost you are to give. Do not take gold or silver or copper for your belts; no sack for […]

God is love

Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time If one has to find a word that sums up the underlying message and the spirit of the Gospel, it would easily be agreed that the word is—Love, “God is love” (1 John 4:8). If we look deeply enough, it could be just as easy to find another word which […]

Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?

As Jesus got into a boat, his disciples followed him. Suddenly a violent storm came up on the sea, so that the boat was being swamped by waves; but he was asleep. They came and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We are perishing!” He said to them, “Why are you terrified, O you of […]

The Gift the world refuses to receive is ours to bring to the world

Pentecost Sunday This Sunday’s Gospel reading can be seen as a “rehearsal” for Jesus’ closest disciples to anticipate the coming of the Spirit to the early Christian community on Pentecost, which took place 50 days after Jesus’ resurrection as depicted in the first reading Acts 2:1-11. From the sequence of the words spoken by Jesus […]

That All Will Be One

With this prayer for unity, Jesus concludes His prayer; and then begins a discourse on the same subject: “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another.” This does not express perfect likeness to God, but only likeness as far as it was humanly possible; as when He says, “Be you merciful, […]

Giving God Glory

It is justly asked, how the Son can glorify the Father, when the eternal glory of the Father never appeared in the form of man, and because of its own Divine perfection, does not increase. But among men this glory was less when God was only known in Judea; and therefore the Son glorified the […]

Convicted by the Holy Spirit

Those whom the Holy Spirit convicts, Christ convicts also. Jesus then explains what the world would be guilty of: “Of sin, because they do not believe in Me.” He mentions this as the sin above all others, because while it remains, the others are retained; when it departs, the others are remitted. “Of righteousness because […]
