Sunday Reflection - 13th Sunday of Ordinary Time (Year C)

Sunday Reflection - 13th Sunday of Ordinary Time (Year C)

Posted: Sat, 25 Jun 2022 10:03

Today we mark a return to ordinary time. We have been on an amazing journey since Ash Wednesday that took us to the lows and highs of our Christian faith. Weekdays reverted to ordinary time some weeks ago, but this is the first Sunday where you will see your priest and deacon wearing the green of this season. However, in the light of all we have gone through, can there be such a time as ordinary? In... Read More »

Sunday Reflection - Corpus Christi - Year C

I well remember our parish Catechists preparing our First Holy Communion children for their special day—the day they were admitted to full communion with their families and friends at the altar of Eucharist. All the children took part in dressing the altar, at the offertory, as they placed upon the table a 'gleaming cloth of white', followed by the bread and wine. Finally, they made the symbolic...

I still have many things to say to you
but they would be too much for you.
But when the Spirit of truth comes
he will lead you to the complete truth


Many of us know the beautiful icon of the Trinity painted by the Russian monk, Rublev. It presents the three sitting around a table with the chalice of blessing. The fourth space around this square table is left deliberately open for you. On this Trinity... Read More »

One of the amazing POSITIVE effects of being in lockdown due to Covid-19 was the sense of UNITY that it engendered. As a global family we are, literally, all in this together We have seen the very best of humanity in the most appalling of situations, as they continue to care on the frontline. We see the generosity of so many people as they offer the gift of compassion. In the pain and misery of the... Read More »

Sunday Reflection - 7th Sunday of Easter (Year C)

Today we finish our reflection on Jesus' priestly prayer as recorded in John's gospel. The prayer he utters is as relevant today as it ever was: 'Father, May they be one in us, as you are in me, and I am in you.' Jesus is fully aware of the love that he shares in the family of the Trinity—it is a love that also transforms his human life, a love that makes the ultimate sacrifice on Calvary.

We... Read More »

Sunday Reflection - Palm Sunday

'Hosanna' the crowds cry, as they lay down their palm leaves in the path of the mighty Messiah, as he enters Jerusalem—on a donkey! This simple act shows the true glory of Jesus: not for him a powerful chariot, or a mighty steed. He enters this week of glory on the humble, working farm animal. I suspect that he would have subscribed to the idea that if the donkey was good enough for the pregnant... Read More »

Sunday Reflection - Fourth Sunday of Lent

Today our gospel is perhaps the most popular and well-loved parables of Jesus: the story of the 'Prodigal Son'--or even the tale of the 'Loving Father.' In this great parable of reconciliation, the Prodigal Son (see: Lk 15:11-32), we see the loving father embrace and welcome home a son who has betrayed his trust and spent all his inheritance. The return of this wastrel is celebrated by a party, as... Read More »

At the start of this great journey towards Easter, on Ash Wednesday, we received ashes on our foreheads, as the minister prayed with us, 'repent and believe in the Gospel.' Today we are presented with the tragic figure of Moses: he had been brought up in the royal court of Pharaoh. He enjoyed luxury and privilege until he had to flee to the desert, after he had killed an Egyptian taskmaster. He recognised... Read More »

Today we have Luke's account of Transfiguration—that special time when Jesus took Peter, James and John to the top of Mount Tabor. For the people of the Covenant, the mountain has special significance, as it is here that they feel close to God. In our first reading from the Book of Genesis, God makes a solemn promise with Abraham, our own father in faith. As we continue our journey through Lent,... Read More »

On this first Sunday of Lent, Luke presents his version of the Temptation in the Desert. Like so many before him and since, Jesus makes the decision to go out into the desert: with no distraction, the Lord chose to spend forty days alone, in prayer and fasting. Last Wednesday we began our Lenten journey with a change of heart. It is good that we are faced with this picture of temptation so early on... Read More »
