The Little Ones

If we were to go over again our readings for the 14th Sunday in Ordinary Time, we might find them requesting us to do a lot of inner violence to our way of reasoning and to our conduct. This is particularly true if we accept the fact that God’s Word...

Enduring Our Suffering

No one likes complainers. We all try to avoid them. As they approach us we begin to wonder what they might have to complain about, this time, and how long the conversation will take. Well, the prophet Jeremiah complained a lot; I mean a lot but, as...

Building Up Our Spirit-Given Gifts

Pentecost is the birthday of the Church! Its conception had been very quiet: from the side of the first Adam asleep, Eve, the mother of humanity, came forth. From the opened side of Jesus, asleep in death, on mount Calvary, mother Church was...

To Soar Above

It might be hard to soar above what seems a rather prosaic description of the Ascension of Jesus Christ (cf. Acts 1:9) so as to benefit spiritually as much as possible from this solemnity lest we forget what is the hope that belongs to God’s...

Following Divine Invitations

Today we should be in for a treat. Not candy, but a treat of the rarest, most precious commodities: LOVE And do we ever need it! Even on Christmas morning, even on Easter Sunday, even on Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, we can run out of it...

Mr. Fixit?

On the 5th Sunday of Easter, as a Community of Faith, today we go over Jesus’ farewell speech, the words he spoke the night before his death (John 14: 1-12). They are words of comfort, among the best ever spoken by a friend to his friends. But they...
