What determines who will inherit the eternal life of the Kingdom are the wor ...Continue Reading

Celebrating at Home: Growing the Kingdom 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time* Continuing the theme of last week’s parable about the wise and the foolish women, this parable also concentrates on wisdom. The wise servants fulfil the bond of trust placed in them by the master by are being productive with an enormous amount of money entrusted to them. Like last Sunday, today’s Gospel is another ‘meantime’ parable - how do we live as disciples of Christ in the meantime as we wait for his return? Read more ... [*]Cel ...Continue Reading

Celebrating at Home: Ready and Waiting 32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time* Wisdom is at the heart of the first reading and Gospel. In the Bible, wisdom is not separate from God but a feminine personification of various attributes of God. The first reading presents wisdom as like a light which never fails. The parable in the Gospel continues the theme of wisdom. The ten virgins (representing the disciples) are waiting for the coming of the bridegroom (the return of Christ). The wise ones brought both their lamps and extra ...Continue Reading

Celebrating at Home: Sincere and Grounded Faith 31st Sunday in Ordinary Time* The warnings against the leaders conclude this week. This is the final part of this series of readings in which Jesus strongly criticises various groups of leaders who have failed to grasp what religion and faith in God are really about. The problem centers around the belief that religious practice is all that is necessary to be justified in God’s eyes. According to Jesus, however, it is really about conversion, the con ...Continue Reading

Celebrating at Home: Loving God and Each Other30th Sunday in Ordinary Time*Another attempt to trap Jesus is contained in the Gospel this Sunday. Opinions and arguments about which was the greatest commandment were common among the Pharisees and questions about it were frequently asked of rabbis. Clearly, those who asked this question of Jesus were trying to disconcert or ‘wrong foot’ Jesus in an attempt to discredit him with his reply.Once again, Jesus does not cleverly sidestep the question; he goes right t ...Continue Reading

Celebrating at Home: The Image of God 29th Sunday in Ordinary Time* What is on display in this story from Matthew’s Gospel is not Jesus’ clever reply, but the image of God he presents.
