JN 20:1-9 Perhaps the most important moment in Christianity is when the apostles and Mary of Magdala go to see Jesus in the tomb and discover that he is not there: he has risen from the dead? How can this be? He lay in silence for three days, his tomb guarded and the door blocked by a large stone. How could he possibly have disappeared? Mary can hardly believe her eyes, and rushes to tell the apostles.... Read More

Mt 28: 1-10 Today’s Gospel is Matthew’s account of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. As Mary and Mary Magdalane approach the tomb, an angel comes to them telling them Jesus has risen, He will meet them in Galilee, and to tell the other apostles. On their way, they see Jesus who tells them not to be afraid and to tell the apostles they will see Him in Galilee also. The cross on which Jesus died... Read More

John 18:1-19:42 The Gospel is about the suffering and death of Jesus, I believe it teaches us about deciding between good and evil, between making the decision of thinking of your needs before the needs of another. The Gospel also makes me think about why we would call this day “Good” Friday, and the question “how can Jesus’ sufferings, the betrayals of his brothers, the ghastly... Read More

John 13:1-15 This Gospel is about Jesus washing the feet of the disciples, and it teaches us about what love really is. The modern definition of love can be misconstrued and confused with infatuation. This reading helps us to learn that to understand love we must develop an intimate relationship with Jesus because “God is love.” What Jesus is trying to teach is that love is not self-centered,... Read More

IS 50:4-9A The phrase “turn the other cheek” has always been a part of the Catholic identity. In this reading Isaiah speaks of exactly that. He says that he “gave my back to those who beat me, my cheeks to those who plucked my beard.” Isaiah does so because he has the Lord for guidance and therefore will not hide from those who persecute him. Isaiah writes that he is not ashamed because... Read More

Gospel jn 13:21-33, 36-38 How can we learn to be more accepting of the trials that come our way? Oftentimes, when we are searching for guidance, we turn to the image of Christ himself. There is no better example of acceptance and quiet grace than Jesus at the Last Supper. Jesus knew he would be betrayed: first by Judas, who essentially sold his soul for thirty pieces of silver, and later by Peter,... Read More

JN 12:1-11 Jesus did an impossible thing. He raised Lazarus from the dead. After such an incredible miracle, Jesus and the disciples are enjoying a simple meal. After dinner, Mary used expensive oil and anointed the feet of Jesus with her hair. As a result, Judas questioned why she used such pricey oil on his feet. He made the point that the money would be better spent helping the poor. However Jesus... Read More

MT 17:1-9 Peter, James, and his brother John witnessed Jesus’ transfiguration on the top of a mountain. They were exposed to Moses and Elijah and stood in the white light that radiated like the sun from Jesus’ body. Then these three apostles heard the Lord say from above, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to him.” Peter, James, and John were fearful,... Read More

Gospel JN 11:45-56 The Gospel today begins with a common theme: fear. The Pharisees and the Sanhedrin of Jesus’ time feared the power Jesus had in their kingdoms. They feared what else he could do if he could preform such miracles and they feared losing everything that they claimed as theirs. Caiaphas, the high priest, then says that it is better for the Sanhedrin for one man, Jesus, to die,... Read More
