BUILD YOUR LIVES ON LOVE AND TRUTH

Liturgical Colour: 

2 Jn. 4-9 & Lk.17:26-37

There are two key words in today's First Reading - love and truth. The word ‘love’ sums up the life of Saint John; he earned ‘the beloved disciple’ title. Once again he tells us, “Let us love one another,” and “to live a life of love” according to the commandments. His message is simple, yet so profound. Our source of love comes from God. No love is more desirable than His. If only we could appreciate fully how much He loves us, our whole outlook on life would be transformed. All we would want to do is to return that love and to love one another.

A BRIDGE OF LOVE

Liturgical Colour: 

Sooner or later, each one of us will experience the death of someone we love - a husband, a wife, a parent, a child, a friend. At first, we feel nothing but numbness and disbelief. Someone who was so much a part of our daily life has suddenly been taken away from us.

THE WISDOM AND THE GOODNESS OF GOD IN OUR LIVES

Liturgical Colour: 

Job 38:1, 12-21; 40:3-5 & Lk. 10:13-16

Modern experts advise parents always to give their children explanations for the rules and regulations they make at home. Children should be given, so far as they can understand them, the reasons why they are to do something or not. But the fact is that the adult world is often so complicated that it is impossible for children to understand all that their parents require of them. And if they use their favourite word and ask 'Why?' there can be only one answer in many instances 'Because daddy or mummy knows best.'

DO NOT BE AFRAID - I AM WITH YOU

Liturgical Colour: 

There is an appointed time for everything, as today's First Reading tells us. It describes the events in every life and their place in every life. This is the way God has planned it. Each of these is a moment of grace and opportunity that can draw us closer to God, shape our mission in life and enable us to strengthen the community of the Church.

RECOGNISING OUR SPIRITUAL POVERTY

Liturgical Colour: 

The Corinthian Christians believed in Christ's Resurrection but not in the resurrection of the body. Greek philosophy saw the body as a prison for the soul. At death, the soul was set free and therefore immortality was an endowment only of the soul.

Saint Paul teaches that the truth of Christ's Resurrection is the promise of the resurrection of the soul and the body. If the only kind of resurrection is immortality of the soul, then Christ was not truly raised from the dead. But the truth of our faith is that Christ was fully raised from the dead and therefore so will we be.

ARE WE IN TRAINING TO PROCLAIM THE GOOD NEWS?

Liturgical Colour: 

1 Cor. 9:16-19, 22-27 & Lk. 6:39-42

Saint Paul’s conversion to Christianity was, as we know, sudden and dramatic. From that moment he found the Gospel so exciting that he felt impelled to spend the rest of his life sharing it with others. It was so important to him that he gave his preaching freely, supporting himself by working as a tentmaker.
