Sunday Reflection

  • Embracing risk and love as disciples of Christ

    Nov 19, 2023

    This parable in the Gospel raises many questions for us as the story seems to justify the principles of capitalist economics in handling their fortune.

  • Be ready to do God’s will

    Nov 10, 2023

    In the Gospel today, Jesus speaks about the 10 virgins, five of whom were wise and the other five foolish.

  • Practise is worth more than mere preaching

    Nov 03, 2023

    The challenge comes when what we say does not match what we do. Sometimes, we say things in order to look good in front of others but in reality, we do not even care whether we act out what we say.

  • Put love and you will draw out love

    Oct 27, 2023

    As Christ’s good disciples, let us love one another with a love that is so great that we all became models for all believers, even in times of great affliction and trials, even in times of those who contract and fail to love us, because just like St John of the Cross would say, “when there is no love, put love, and you will draw out love.”

    Oct 06, 2023

    “Below expectation and beyond expectation” could be a perspective from which to reflect on today’s readings, especially the Gospel. Our way of life and the fruit we bear fall below God’s expectation.

    Sep 29, 2023

    Today’s Gospel reading from Matthew Chapter 21, speaks not only about a call for the community of believers to remain faithful in responding and in doing the Father’s will but beyond that provides a package of teaching which touches on Christian ethics, particularly the involvement of one’s conscience within the context of a sound decision making.

  • God is not like us

    Sep 22, 2023

    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.

  • Forgive others as we have been forgiven

    Sep 15, 2023

    In the course of our daily lives, we encounter different kinds of people. Because of this, the way we communicate will depend on the kind of people that we encounter, However, most of the time, the words that we use fall broadly into two categories i.e., those that build up a relationship or words t
