The choice of faith

21st Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B: Aug. 26, 2012
Josh 24:1-2, 15-17, 18; Ps 34; Eph 5:2, 25-32; John 6:51-58

This is our fifth and final week in Chapter 6 of the Gospel of John, and we have come to the time of decision. Our Lord Jesus has done much and said much; and now it is time for his disciples to respond, to choose. Just as we heard in the first reading that Joshua had said to the People of Israel some 1400 years earlier, “Choose you this day whom you will serve”—so our Lord’s disciples had a choice to make.

The chapter began the day before, when our Lord Jesus miraculously fed the crowd of 5000 with just five loaves and two fish. And then, the next day, the crowd came looking for him. (more…)

2nd Sunday of Easter, Year B: April 15, 2012
Acts 4:32-35; Ps 118; 1 John 5:1-6; John 20:19-31

“These are written that you may come to believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that, believing, you may have life in his name.

On Easter Sunday, and throughout the 50 days of the Easter Season, we celebrate the truth that our Lord Jesus Christ rose from the dead. The tomb could not hold him. His love conquered death itself, and he rose triumphant, his body transformed and glorified. And he opens the way to us to share in this Resurrection life: partially now, in our souls, through baptism; fully, on the last day, when he raises us up in a resurrection like his. (more…)

Lowering the barriers to Life

5th Sunday of Lent, Year A: March 25, 2012
Ezek 37:12-14; Ps 130; Rom 8:8-11; John 11:1-45

Today is the third of three Sunday Masses in which those who are preparing for baptism at the Easter Vigil have been receiving the “Scrutinies.” And so, by design, the Gospel readings at these three Masses are stories in which our Lord Jesus has three key encounters with different persons. In these encounters, he reveals to them something about who they are—especially what has limited them, weighed them down, held them back; and about their unmet needs. And he reveals something about himself: who he is, what he can do, what he wants to do for them and for us. And so our Lord Jesus himself, though his Gospel, scrutinizes the hearts of these elect preparing for baptism; and, indeed, the hearts of each of us. (more…)
