  • The politics of Jesus

    Jan 21, 2022

    In today’s gospel (Luke 14:14-21), Jesus comes to Nazareth, the town where He grew up, to the synagogue where He worshipped, and to people who know Him. He reads from the Prophet Isaiah:

  • Flourishing as a community

    Jan 14, 2022

    Each and every one of us has abilities and talents which are unique to us. We do not have any duplicates - we are each made different and unique, and special, in the image of God.

  • Our baptism is about the fullness of new life

    Jan 08, 2022

    Jesus, who humbled Himself, took the path of solidarity with the people. He was baptised in the River Jordan together with the sinners, those who had gone through life in an uncertain and perilous world.

  • Pay attention. Be astonished. Tell about it.

    Jan 01, 2022

    The Feast of the Epiphany celebrates God’s revelation of His only begotten Son to the nations. But more than just a mere revelation, the Epiphany of Christ reminds us that this Christ, whose birth we just celebrated, continues to lead us on that path of life.

  • Our sure encounter of Christ in Mary

    Dec 17, 2021

    The Church, on this Fourth Sunday of Advent, through the liturgy of St Luke, draws our attention specifically to the person of Mary, and also to Elizabeth, and the offspring they are both carrying in their wombs, as they share together their exuberant joy at the blessing and fulfilment of the promises of God — to the people of Israel, in and through Mary.

  • When nominal requirements are insufficient

    Dec 11, 2021

    Our religion is not just about fulfilling rituals. St. James in his letter tells us that faith alone is not enough. Faith must produce fruit in active works of love.

  • Prepare for the God of all ages!

    Dec 03, 2021

    The hustle and bustle that accompany the celebration of Christmas often deprives us of the hidden miracle of Advent.

  • Awaiting promises full of hope

    Nov 27, 2021

    On this first Sunday of Advent, when we begin a new liturgical year, the Liturgy of the Word (seemingly incongruously) draws attention to the end times and calls us to prepare ourselves for that day.

  • A King of compassionate love

    Nov 19, 2021

    The world is not what it was before. It is going through critical times. It witnesses, in an unprecedented way, growing incidents of violence, economic polarisation, racism, poverty, systematic oppression, religious fundamentalism, cultural breakdown, environmental pollution and, added to this, there is the novel corona virus. There is nothing in our lifetime that has affected the world as radically as COVID-19.

  • Live in the present

    Nov 13, 2021

    God loves us so much that He does not want to abandon us, even after our death. He promised us Heaven in which we will continue praising Him in the heavenly banquet.
