Luke 6:36-38 ​In today’s Gospel, Jesus, speaking to his Apostles, presents a familiar teaching to us: Do not judge others, but be merciful. This does not mean we should allow others to sin, but that we should correct them and bring them out of sin. We cannot judge or condemn others, but we also can’t condone their sin. We must show mercy and compassion without compromising to sin. Jesus goes... Read More

Mark 9:2-10 This gospel reading is the transfiguration. Jesus takes his disciples Peter, James and John atop a high mountain by themselves to pray. Jesus’ clothes became white, purer than any fuller on earth could possibly bleach them. Then, Elijah appeared along with Moses and was conversing with Jesus. The disciples were stunned and terrified. Then a cloud came over them and said “This is my... Read More

Matthew 5:43-48 In the Gospel, Jesus gives his disciples a challenge: to give love and kindness to all people without exception. The old order instructed the Jews to love their friends but hate their enemies. To combat this, Jesus parallels the Father’s love with the love we are all called to give. Jesus compares that love to the forces of nature. Sunshine does not discriminate against those... Read More

Reflection on Gospel Reading on 2/26 Matthew 7: 7-12 Sermon on the Mount: The beginning lines of this Gospel passage are incredibly optimistic. In fact, one may think these verses to be too positive. How many times have we heard of others hurting and suffering? They must have called out to God, but no relief has been given to them. The point of Jesus’ teaching is not that life is always good all... Read More

LK 11:29-32 In this Gospel reading of Luke, Jesus is speaking to the crowd of people about Jonah, the prophet to the Ninevites. He compares Jonah’s message to that of his own, saying that as Jonah was a sign to the Ninevites, the Son of Man will be that sign to the current generation. But, even so, Jesus says that something greater than Jonah is in their midst, meaning himself as the Son of God. We... Read More

Matthew 6:7 In todays Gospel we hear the institution of the Lord’s Prayer. Christ says to us that in praying we must not “babble” but instead God knows what we want and he knows of what we need. He gives us the Lord’s Prayer to say because we need to reflect on what we have done and see that God wants us and that we must let His will be done and not ours. Towards the end of... Read More
