Sunday Reflection

  • A clash between good and evil

    Sep 18, 2021

    We have God for our help for He upholds our lives (Psalm 53). It is truly awesome and amazing to experience Jesus Christ as the Word of God in our faith journey.

  • The Cross as the weapon in following Jesus

    Sep 11, 2021

    Lord Jesus, I thank you for the many crosses in my life. Help me and give me the grace to continue to walk your way faithfully.

  • Ephphatha — Openness of body, mind, spirit and soul during the pandemic

    Sep 04, 2021

    “Be Opened”, Jesus commanded the deaf and mute man, Ephphatha. At first glance, the Gospel speaks of the physical healing of a deaf and mute man.

  • We are called to hear, obey and understand

    Aug 28, 2021

    We cannot avoid laws, norms, rituals, and practices in our society, family and Church. These practices are part of our lives. We are taught not to violate the laws and norms.

  • Taste and see the goodness of the Lord

    Aug 22, 2021

    In today’s Gospel reading, many of those who were listening to Jesus were unable to understand His teachings, especially Jesus’ discourse on eating His flesh and drinking His blood.

  • Mary and the spirituality of accompaniment

    Aug 13, 2021

    “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, my spirit rejoices in God, my Saviour.”

  • We receive nourishment from the Word of God and the Bread of Life

    Aug 07, 2021

    Some have been tempted to lie, to misuse God’s name, to steal, to covet, to murder, to commit adultery or to do this or to do that. But one thing which some may have been tempted to do which is probably far more dangerous is to be tempted to despair of himself, herself, or even on others.

  • The Eucharist is a gift, not an entitlement

    Jul 30, 2021

    The Eucharist is a gift, not an entitlement, and the sanctity of that gift is only diminished by unworthy reception. While it is likely that too many receive the Eucharist in a state of mortal sin, this is no reason to lower the bar. Low expectations lead to mediocrity, not to spiritual excellence.

  • Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time: The banquet of life

    Jul 23, 2021

    People will forget what you said to them, but they will not forget what you did for them, how you made them feel. Be kind, be gentle, be compassionate, and show love.

  • Sixteenth Sunday: Are we being accountable?

    Jul 17, 2021

    In the Gospel today, we hear how the Apostles rejoined Jesus after being sent out in pairs (last Sunday’s Gospel) and told Him all they had done and taught, and He took them to a lonely place where they could be by themselves. Reflecting on both the readings, I would summarise it in one word, “accountability.”
