The essence of our Christian faith is the love of God and the love of neighbour. The two commandments were linked together like two hinges on a door.

By saying “Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s,” Jesus is teaching us two things: our loyalty as citizens to our country and above all our obedience to God.

  • Gospel Reflection

In the gospel we find an allegory of God’s love for his people and his desire that they respond to this love. Let us be mindful of the God who continues to reach out to us. May we hear that invitation anew each day even when we may have been slow to respond at times.

We are tenants of the new vineyard of Christ called the “Church." To enliven our faith, we must live productive and meaningful lives, affirming that we are built upon the cornerstone of Jesus Christ.

26th Sunday in Ordinary Time

  • 26 September 2020
  • Gospel Reflection

What the gospel highlights is that our ‘yes’ is always an ongoing invitation that is being put before us. Our ‘yes’ is an ongoing ‘yes’ to the Lord. Our ‘yes’ is revealed in and through the small and the big choices and events of our lives.

  • Gospel Reflection

"God's thoughts and ways are not as ours." This is the time to find out the different ways God is active in our lives. God’s ways are like this, in that he brings back everyone together to cherish the memories of God’s love around us, amidst all the chaos and sufferings.

24th Sunday in Ordinary Time

  • 13 September 2020
  • Gospel Reflection

The scripture readings today reveal that God is forgiveness and to be a disciple of Jesus is to know the reality of this wonderful gift. At the same time, just as we have been forgiven for our failures, it is to embrace a way of life that reveals this to those who have offended us.

23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

  • 05 September 2020
  • Gospel Reflection

The readings this Sunday remind us of the responsibility we have been entrusted by God through Baptism. Like Ezekiel, we should be a "watchman" for others. Jesus also teaches us to not only assist in our neighbour's temporal and spiritual needs, but also to correct and provide counsel when needed.

  • Gospel Reflection

"If anyone wants to be a follower of mine, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me." We are called to accompany Jesus in his way, embracing suffering and even death. During this pandemic, we too are carrying the burden of suffering, yet it is not without meaning.

  • 21 August 2020
  • Gospel Reflection

When Jesus asked his disciples who people think He was, Peter responded"You are the son of the living God." Just as Peter was prompted by his inner self and given the key to the kingdom of heaven, we too have been given the key to unlock our inner self to know more about the strength of Jesus in us.

  • 14 August 2020
  • Gospel Reflection

At various times in our lives we face all kinds of difficulties and trials as we do at this particular time of the COVID 19 pandemic. Let us not be discouraged. Like the Canaanite woman in the Gospel, let us plead on our knees and pray with trusting faith to the Lord who is close to us.

19th Sunday in Ordinary Time

  • 08 August 2020
  • Gospel Reflection

During these uncertain and anxious times,  we are like Peter and the disciples. We can be strong and brave in the face of adversity, but we can also become fearful and feel our faith becoming weak. Jesus reassures us today, "Do not be afraid. It is I." He reaches out to us and holds us safe.

Jesus feeds the crowd with five loaves and two fish. While His disciples are more concerned about their fears and inadequacies, Jesus challenges them to open their hearts and recognise that with what little they have, they can make an enormous difference for those in need.

The actions we take in caring for our families and our communities may seem insignificant, but these little seeds of kindness and patience that are being sown are giving us all encouragement and hope in the midst of this COVID-19 pandemic.
