JN 10:31-42 In this gospel, Jesus is being accused of blasphemy. Yet, it is this impossible position for him. He cannot deny who he is and that He must do His Father’s works…and this simple truth results in accusations of lying and blasphemy. Have you ever been caught between a rock and a hard place? You want to tell the truth, but it might result in rejection or persecution? In that moment,... Read More

Lk 1:26- 38 Today’s Gospel is about the angel Gabriel’s annunciation to Mary that she is pregnant with the Son of God, whom she is to name Jesus. Even though Mary has no relations with a man, through the incredible power of God, she conceives a child. Mary’s faith in God has won her favor with Him, as the angel tells her. We too, should reflect on this idea that God will reward us... Read More

John 8: 21-30 Jesus’ speaking to the Pharisees in today’s Gospel initiates their belief in Him, as He emphasizes that He is of greater power and origin. Jesus emphasizes that unless we come to fully believe in Him and turn away from our transgressions, we cannot live with Him after our deaths, for we will die with sin in our hearts. The most prominent words He speaks in this gospel read: “When... Read More

According to Jesus in this reading, only through death will the wheat bear... Read More

JN 7:40-53 This Gospel passage starts with fighting among a crowd after they heard Jesus speak. Because he spoke so well, some of the members of the crowd believed that he was Christ. Others disagreed because of a small discrepancy in the Bible over where he was born, and due to this, infighting began. The chief priests and Pharisees went to the guards and asked them why they hadn’t arrested... Read More

Gospel – Matthew 9:14 In this gospel, the Pharisees ask Jesus why his disciples are not fasting. As Jesus points out, the real question should be why are the Pharisees fasting. By practicing fasting, you are to become closer to God. The Pharisees have no reason to do so, being that they could just get closer to God directly. During the season of Lent, giving up something dear to us may seem tedious.... Read More
