Luke 16:19-31 In the Gospel Reading Jesus accentuates the stark polarity between the carousing life of the rich man and the misery of the poor man. In the next life, this gap will become a final and unbridgeable abyss between repose in Abraham’s bosom and torment in the fiery underworld.

Luke 16:1-13 In the Gospel Reading our Blessed Lord Jesus praises real determined effort. The fact that we always must count on God’s grace does not in any way exempt us from exhibiting strenuous effort and heroic sacrifice in daily living. We are to put forth the same zeal into the affairs of our souls... Read More

Mary is born and the world fails to notice. Even in the Gospels, nary a word is spoken about her birth. All too often humanity fails to notice what is most important for God. This happens even though what is important for God is essential for us. All Israel eagerly awaits the arrival of the... Read More

Luke 14:1, 7-14 In the Gospel Reading Jesus teaches that humility is necessary for salvation. It is not our own efforts that save us and give us life. Rather, it always God’s grace doing great things through our lowliness.

Every page of Sacred Scripture makes know God’s care for us and how He relentlessly seeks to lead us ever closer to Him. In the Old Testament the Lord God is revealed as the true light of Israel. Without the Lord God, the chosen people stumble and lose their way. Time and again prophets herald the... Read More

To celebrate Our Lord’s calling to follow Him, Saint Matthew throws a party for friends (Matthew 9:10). For sure, it is quite an impressive gathering of sinners! Jesus, too, is there. Our Lord is eager to meet the friends of Saint Matthew – so much so that He gladly comes to Saint Matthew’s home. To... Read More

Time and again the Gospel evangelists describe the reaction of the people to Jesus’ words and actions as amazing. In today’s Gospel reading, however, it is Jesus who expresses astonishment. Upon meeting and hearing a centurion – that is, a Roman official and Gentile – Jesus exclaims: “I tell you, not even in Israel have I... Read More

Like a king making ready for battle or a contractor about to build a tower, our Lord Jesus instructs us with these examples to pursue Him deliberately and thoughtfully (Luke 14:28-33). Genuine discipleship never is haphazard or whimsical. Taking the call of Christ to heart and sincerely seeking to follow Him entails real sacrifice. Jesus must... Read More

Ask the Holy Spirit today to help us to respond obediently and joyfully to His prompting. Before making decisions, always consider the matter in the presence of God. Avoid hastiness. Remain humble. Be prayerful, with special fervor when we are facing important decisions. Only seek counsel from trustworthy people, those who are themselves earnestly seeking... Read More

If we really are going to progress as followers of Jesus Christ we must cultivate interior recollection. For sure, this is not an easy feat in our hyper-active restless day and age. Live each day with the end in mind. For genuine Christians, the end always is the same: heaven. This proper perspective makes our... Read More

“The community of believers was of one heart and mind” (Acts 4:32). According the testimony provided by the Acts of the Apostles, an unmistakable unity and genuine care for everyone is a distinguishing feature of the earliest followers of Jesus. This is precisely what fascinated their neighbors and colleagues and gave them pause to ponder.... Read More
