  • Change yourself before trying to change others

  • Let go of enmity

    Feb 18, 2022

    God cannot be outdone by generosity — As Jesus promises us at the end of today’s Gospel — Luke 6:38 (NRSV) “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap.”

  • Walk in truth and in spirit

  • Pay attention. Be astonished. Tell about it.

    Jan 01, 2022

    The Feast of the Epiphany celebrates God’s revelation of His only begotten Son to the nations. But more than just a mere revelation, the Epiphany of Christ reminds us that this Christ, whose birth we just celebrated, continues to lead us on that path of life.

  • Our sure encounter of Christ in Mary

    Dec 17, 2021

    The Church, on this Fourth Sunday of Advent, through the liturgy of St Luke, draws our attention specifically to the person of Mary, and also to Elizabeth, and the offspring they are both carrying in their wombs, as they share together their exuberant joy at the blessing and fulfilment of the promises of God — to the people of Israel, in and through Mary.

  • When nominal requirements are insufficient

    Dec 11, 2021
