Sunday Reflection

  • 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.”

  • Fifteenth Sunday: Called, Chosen and Sent

    Jul 10, 2021

    The theme for today’s reading can be perceived from our second reading; Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, “In him we were claimed as God’s own chosen from the beginning under the predetermined plan of the one who guides all things as he decides by his own will; chosen to be for his greater glory, the people who put their hopes in Christ before he came.

  • Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time: Ad Hominem Disasters

    Jul 03, 2021

    “Hard of face and obstinate of heart,” the Lord calls them in today’s first reading. The Hebrews ended up being conquered by the Babylonians and taken into exile to what is modern day Iraq.

  • Twelfth Sunday: God Over Nature

    Jun 19, 2021

    At the end of the Book of Job, God addressed Job out of a storm and asked him if he was present when God created the world.

  • Eleventh Sunday: Trusting in God’s Time

    Jun 12, 2021

    Those of you who know me know that I have the basic attitudes of trying to do too much myself and wanting everything immediately.

  • Corpus Christi: On Eucharistic Adoration

    Jun 05, 2021

    The Solemnity of Corpus Christi forces us to take a deep look at our belief in the Eucharist as well as our participation in the Eucharistic Community that is the Church.
