Liturgical Reflection for 32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

In the first reading, we are reminded what great joy it is to receive God's abundant love and his faithful promises to us! If we are faithful to him in the Covenant, we never need to worry about hunger nor thirst or ever will our jars go empty, nor would our jugs run dry. The interesting point of note is [...]

Liturgical Reflection for 29th Sunday in Ordinary Time

The first reading speaks of our God who humbled himself to take on the role as a servant. No where in the religions of the world, do we see deities suffering together with humanity, but Jesus, the incarnate face of God, does precisely that because of his deep love for us. We are not alone in our suffering, but God [...]

Liturgical Reflection for 28th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Money and wealth were not condemned or frowned upon by Jesus. The view St. Timothy was trying to impress upon his community of believers echoes what Jesus emphasised all throughout his ministry. The love of money is the root of all evil. The love of money reveals that money has overtaken the person. Money is a thing and not a [...]
