“WHO ARE MY MOTHER AND SISTER?”

TENTH SUNDAY OF ORDINARY TIME

The 10th Sunday of ordinary time suggests to us the challenge which Christ and God worshipers have to face in order to live out the Gospel. The family dynamic which was made to own Jesus led him to create and lay down the foundations of the new family. At the same time his opposition became radical to the point of ascribing his work to Beelzebub the chief of demons. The first reading and the Gospel have a common thread: sin makes people resist God’s will and kingdom; God even becomes repugnant for them. Genesis relates to us that after Adam and Eve have disobeyed God, not only they have disobeyed, they also have repulsion for everything that regards God.

TRINITY IS OUR JOY

HOLY TRINITY SUNDAY

REFLECTIONS:

a) Matthew puts the meeting of Jesus with his Disciples in Galilee. Why?… The location of the meeting means that the Apostles, following their Master, are to begin the proclamation of the Gospel from the very place where Jesus began his public life.

CONNECTED TO “THE VINE” USING SOCIAL MEDIA

FIFTH SUNDAY OF EASTER

“Are you connected?” This is a routine question that youths nowadays ask when they want to know if you are online or not. The gadgets that the “millennials” are using now make them “connected” to the world but there is a risk to be disconnected with the people next to them. Paraphrasing one song, it looks like  this, “They are near yet so far”. The image of Jesus as the True Vine in this Fifth Sunday of Easter is a good reminder for us that our connection with each other is through Jesus himself. St. Paul in his teaching emphasizes many times that Jesus is the head and we are his body. In Chapter 15 of John,  John describes Jesus as the Vine and the disciples his branches. Both Paul and John share the idea that we can bear fruit or be useful only when we are connected to Jesus, our head and our Vine.

“IT IS WRITTEN THAT THE CHRIST WOULD SUFFER AND RISE FROM THE DEAD”

THIRD SUNDAY OF EASTER

           This is what Jesus tells his disciples, according to the Gospel story, when  he appeared to them, who were so slow to believe, that he was not a ghost, but a real person, the person they had known and seen and heard for a long time, before he was arrested and crucified. In his address he does not stop there: he explains the purpose of his dying and rising “... so that repentance for the forgiveness of sins would be preached to all nations”. In other words, so that all men and women might be saved and be given a new life.

LET US BE DIRECTED BY THE SPIRIT

PENTECOST SUNDAY

Every year, the solemnity of Pentecost is for us an opportunity to meditate on the gift of the Holy Spirit. In the second reading of this Sunday, Saint Paul tells us: “Since the Spirit is our life, let us be directed by the Spirit” (Ga5: 25). Indeed, the Holy Spirit must not be reduced to a mere power or force. He (the Holy Spirit) is the third person of the Most Holy Trinity. As such He can truly guide us if we are docile to Him.

I CALL YOU FRIENDS

SIXTH SUNDAY OF EASTER

Today’s gospel is the continuation of the passage we read last Sunday. The Lord is the vine, we are the braches. We need to be united with Christ, so that his life may reach us. This unity, expressed by the word “abide”, in today’s text is explained with the image of friendship.
