  • “WHO DO YOU SAY I AM?”

    Reflection on the 24th Sunday in  Ordinary Time Year B (September 16 )

    (First Reading:  Isaiah 50, 5-9; Ps 114: 1-6, 8-9; Second Reading:  James 2: 14-18; Gospel: Mark 8, 27-35)

    The twenty fourth Sunday of ordinary time suggests to us the theme of the Suffering Messiah. The gospel of Mark puts at the central stage Jesus as the messiah, while it clears away all the misleading ideas about him. This Gospel is placed at the center of the Gospel of Mark when the fame of Jesus is at the peak and is the fruit of the miracles he has accomplished: the healing of a Syrophaenician woman’s daughter, the healing of a deaf and dumb man, the feeding the of crowd Mark 8, 1-10 and the healing of the blind man Mark 8, 22-26.

  • NO DISTINCTION OF PEOPLE

     23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time Year B

    I just want to recall the most quoted passage of Prophet Isaiah when he said, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, my ways are not your ways” (Is. 55:8-9). This is how the mind of God works. This is the wisdom of our God. We do not know the mind of God. Sometimes we people like to challenge the ways of God. We want to assert our own ways.

  • “HEAR ME, ALL OF YOU!”

    1. There is a confrontation between Jesus and some Pharisees and Scribes who have come from Jerusalem to discuss one of the main issues of the Jewish religion: ‘Purification before meals’.
    2. At the time of Jesus every Jew was bound to wash thoroughly all the parts of his body that had come into contact with a non-Jew or even to wash any other object considered unclean.
