If we are to be followers of Jesus, he will call us to give up the things which are hindering us and stopping us from being totally free to follow our calling. The rich man went away sad because his wealth was preventing him from following Jesus. (Eight Week in Ordinary Time Read more →

Jesus calls the rich man to follow him
I do have faith. Help the little faith I have!
The father in the Gospel is in desperate need of getting help from Jesus to cure his son of the ‘spirit of dumbness.” (Mark 9:14-29. Monday, Seventh Week in Ordinary Time Year II) He is not ashamed of seeking help or concerned about what others may think. His only concern is his Read more →
We need to be free
It is a wonderful thing to be free to practise one’s Catholic faith; free to love, free to be generous and also free not to hate. “Eye for eye and tooth for tooth.” (Matthew 5:38-48, Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time) Men who are discerning their vocation need to be totally free to Read more →
Challenges come and challenges go.
One of the lessons that the feast of St Cyril and St Methodius teaches us is that sometimes we are called to do things which many may not necessarily agree with. Cyril invented an alphabet, translated parts of the Bible and composed a Slavonic Liturgy. There was opposition from German Clergy and Bishops Read more →
You are the Light of the World
An essential part of the vocation of every Christian is to be the salt of the earth and light of the world. (Matthew 5:13-16) Just as we need salt to give flavour to our food so it becomes tasty and pleasant to eat, our actions, our faith and efforts to live a virtuous Read more →

I will make you fishers of men.
We begin Ordinary Time listening to the call of two sets of brothers, Simon and Andrew, and James and John. Both were fishermen. (Monday First Week of Ordinary time, Year II, Mark 1:14-20) It reminds us that those who are called to follow Our Lord did it without any excuse. From this Read more →
We are all favourites
The feast of the Baptism of Jesus (Matthew 3:13-17) teaches us that through our baptism we become Sons and Daughters of God, the beloved and God’s favour rests on us. We may not feel like favourites, but baptism gives us a special dignity of becoming Sons and Daughters and of becoming the Read more →
A little of the wise men
One of the lessons the feast of the Epiphany teaches us is that the wise men were open and searched for the Christ Child. They left their home lands. They knew the Scriptures and the prophecies about the birth of the Messiah. They experienced the wonder of God in the star and in Jesus and Mary. They were touched and Read more →
