  • The Solemnity of All Saints: Heroes

    Nov 01, 2020

    The saints are really heroes. They completed their lives united to God, truly being all that God created them to be. They live on now united to the Lord in heaven, praying for us here on earth, and guiding us to be the heroes that God calls us to be.

  • Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time: Teach the children to love

    Oct 25, 2020

    People always say that it is more difficult to be a child or teen these days than back when they were young. People said that way back when I was young and drugs started dominating lives.

  • Twenty-ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time: Doing our bit

    Oct 17, 2020

    In the first reading for this Sunday, the Prophet Isaiah, actually the Second Isaiah, makes a startling statement. He refers to King Cyrus of Persia, a pagan, as someone who has been anointed by God.

  • Twenty-eighth Sunday of Ordinary Time: Wearing the clothes of Christ

    Oct 10, 2020

    Wearing our Christianity is a solution to the problem of polarisation in our society. When we identify ourselves first as Christians rather than as members of this or that political party or as liberal or conservative, then our primary mode of action will be to treat others with the kindness of Jesus Christ.

  • Twenty-seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time: Tenant Farmers All!

  • Twenty-fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time: Justice and Mercy

    Sep 20, 2020

    Human Resources would not have been happy with that landowner. Sometimes, it seems that Human Resources does not want to come out on the side of generosity. I remember a time that we wanted to pay an employee extra for work on a particular project. We were told that we could not do this unless we re-adjusted that employee’s pay scale for all his work.

  • Twenty-fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time: Are there limits to forgiveness?

    Sep 13, 2020

    Do not be concerned with the number 77. Jesus was using this number to say that the number of times we should forgive is far greater than we could imagine.

  • Twenty-third Sunday of Ordinary Time: Minority Report

    Sep 06, 2020

    The Lord puts the parable of the unforgiving debtor before us that we may learn from it. He has no desire for us to die, so he warns us: “This is how your heavenly Father will deal with you if you, any of you, fail to forgive your brother or sister from your heart.”
