Sunday Reflection

  • Humility leads to a deeper knowledge of oneself

    Oct 21, 2022

    Comparisons can be diabolical. Jesus hardly ever compares people. We don’t find Him comparing Peter with John, or the younger son with the elder son in the story of the Prodigal Son.

  • With God’s help we can make the impossible possible

    Oct 14, 2022

    Prayer after Communion, having been cleansed, we ask to be elevated – elevated through participation into the very mysteries we serve, so that the fullness of the majesty of the mysterium tremendum et fascinans be secured for us as eternal gifts.

  • Being thankful and showing gratitude

    Oct 07, 2022

    Leprosy! This dreaded disease or word whenever spoken or heard, since ancient times, and still today, exists in some countries. As we reflect upon those who are suffering from it, our first thought is to avoid them at all costs rather than show compassion.

  • Faith in God presupposes faith in ourselves

    Sep 30, 2022

    Sometimes our life is overwhelmed by many issues and by people who will shake our faith and relationship with God.

  • To serve God is to be truly free

    Sep 23, 2022

    God invites us to depend on Him and learn from His ways and follow his precepts, but He does not force us to do so.

  • Pray for a heart of generosity to love all

    Sep 17, 2022

    The rich become richer, the poor become poorer. Little do they know the joke is on the “abusers” when God’s judgement comes (cfr. Amos 8:7).

  • We all need to come to our senses

    Sep 10, 2022

    Our lengthy passage provides us with three parables of lost-and-found scenarios. All three paint an unforgettable picture of the overflowing love and forgiveness of God. Today, I would like to pay attention to the third and longest of the three parables.

  • Humility is acknowledging everything is from God

    Aug 26, 2022

    The Gospel passage tells us something that is still happening today. In His parable, Jesus tells us not to sit at places of honour but, rather, to go to the lowliest seat.

  • Strive to enter through the narrow door

    Aug 19, 2022

    Jesus invites us to meet Him at the narrow door and follow Him wholeheartedly. Therefore, let us be happy to go through the narrow gate and centre our minds and thoughts on Jesus.

  • Setting the world on fire: Jesus’ mission and ours

    Aug 12, 2022

    Jesus’ way of establishing God’s reign on earth was not the way of violence. He emphatically rejected the politics of violent revolution adopted by the Zealots.
