29th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B: Oct. 18, 2015
Isa 53:10-11; Ps 33; Heb 4:14-16; Mark 10:35-45

What do you truly need? And what does the world really need? These questions seem to be implicit in Jesus’ question to James and John—“What do you wish me to do for you?”—and in their response, their belief about what they and the world really need. Which is: for them to be in charge.

St. Mark relates to us that this conversation takes place as Jesus and his disciples are making a journey to Jerusalem and getting close to their destination. (more…)

24th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B: Sept. 13, 2015
Isa 50:5-9; Ps 116; James 2:14-18; Mark 8:27-35

Our Lord Jesus, in today’s Gospel reading, poses a question to his disciples that is very important: “Who do you say that I am?” “I, Jesus of Nazareth, who you have been following—who am I?” And when we find the true answer to that question, we find that, in a way, it is the central question we have to answer, because so much else follows from who he is.

3rd Sunday of Advent, Year A: Dec. 15, 2013
Isa 35:1-6, 10; Ps 146; James 5:7-10; Matt 11:2-11

We have reached the Third Sunday of Advent, and our excitement is building for the Second Coming of our Lord Jesus! Or at least it is if we are letting the Scripture readings each week sink into our hearts.

  • For back on the First Sunday, we heard our Lord Jesus promise that he would come again, and warn us that when he would come would be unexpected. And so he urged us: Stay awake! Be prepared!
  • And then, last week, we were reminded by the prophet Isaiah and John the Baptist about why we should look forward to this Second Coming with anticipation. (more…)

XII Domingo Ordinario, Año C: 23 Junio 2013
Za 12, 10-11; 13, 1; Sal 62; Gal 3, 26-29; Lc 9, 18-24

Inmediatamente antes de la lectura del Evangelio de hoy leemos la historia de la alimentación de los 5000 que oímos hace tres semanas en la fiesta del Corpus Christi—cuando nuestro Señor Jesús estaba rodeado por una multitud grande y hambrienta de 5000 hombres, además de mujeres y niños, en un lugar remoto, y alimentó milagrosamente a todos ellos a partir de tan sólo cinco panes y dos peces.

Y después de esto, guio a sus discípulos aparte solos para orar. Porque tiene una pregunta muy importante para preguntar a ellos, y quiere que sean capaces de escuchar, no el ruido del mundo, sino la voz tranquila de su Padre, y del Espíritu Santo. (more…)
