  • 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.

  • Fear not little flock

    Aug 05, 2022

    The image of faith as journeying forward in hope also surfaces in our first reading from The Book of Wisdom.

  • To be rich in the sight of God

    Jul 29, 2022

    Today, we are introduced to the Parable of the Rich fool – a parable unique to Luke.

  • Prayers, persistence and perseverance

    Jul 22, 2022

    The life of the early Church shows us that regular formal prayer is essential to preserve our sense of God.

  • Distracted by many things

    Jul 15, 2022

    Mary and Martha represent two ideal types of individuals. Martha appears to be pragmatic and active. When Jesus came to town, she did what the woman of the house usually did in those days: Prepared a meal for the guests and made certain everybody was comfortable.

  • Do you recognise yourself in the parable of the Good Samaritan?

    Jul 08, 2022

    Today’s Gospel is about the essence of our religion: faith in God is expressed in concrete acts of love.

Sunday Reflection

God is not like us

God is beyond us. That is what the readings point to this weekend. The fact that God is a mystery and beyond our thinking is not something that should frustrate or disappoint us but, rather, it should be a source of our hope and the ground that we walk on as Christians.
