Luke 4:38-44

Are the eyes of our hearts open to see the presence of God in our midst? I think we, too, like the people in the gospel crowd at his door asking for help and in his own way Jesus helps us. But are we tuned in to his presence as he speaks through those around us who are willing to guide us? Pray for the gift of discernment so that we are never distracted into doing the will of the crowd.

Luke 4:31-37

Are we intimidated by the world’s standards being sure that we measure up to the world’s expectations? Or are we more concerned about what God expects of us? Do we beg pardon for disturbing peoples’ consciences? Are our choices and decisions based on Gospel values? Let us allow the Spirit of God to permeate our lives and give us the right direction. Then we will share that same authority and conviction which Jesus had.

The Passion of St. John the Baptist
Jeremiah 1:17-19

In baptism, we are called to be God’s prophets: to proclaim God’s word of justice, peace, and reconciliation to our broken world. Through the inspiration, dedication, and humility of John the Baptist, may we be faithful to that call and proclaim by the integrity of our lives, God’s reign of compassion, mercy, and righteousness in our midst.

Twenty-Second Sunday in Ordinary Time
Luke 14:1,7-14

We are not here to impress one another but to love one another. Pope Francis reminds us that the path of the Lord is a road of humility. In other words, imitate Jesus. Notice how he treated everyone with the same respect and love: the blind man at Jericho, the woman at the well, the woman caught in adultery, the poor woman with the two pennies. In the eyes of God, we are all significant and we do not have to prove it. Whether we sit at the head of the table or put on an apron and serve, we are all special in God’s eyes.

Matthew 25:1-13

This is a story about divine delay not only at the end of our life but all throughout our life. It is a reminder that God does not function according to our clocks and calendars. We cannot put the Almighty on a time schedule. Divine delays are an expression, not of rejection, but of love. If somehow, we can see that, our flame of faith will not go out. We will have the extra oil that enables us to rekindle it and keep it burning, during times when we need it most.

Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Matthew 23:13-22

Before we use this gospel to expose the hypocrisy and inconsistencies in the lives of others, we may miss how these words of Jesus speak to us. Dare we allow Jesus’ words to search the dark corners of our own life of faith? Might we hear Jesus saying woe over us? Are we going through the narrow gate? It is there that Jesus is challenging us to a deeper relationship with him.

Twenty-First Sunday in Ordinary Time
Luke 13:22-30

The narrow gate of which Jesus speaks is the way of limitless love, unconditional forgiveness, sacrificial selflessness; we can only enter by letting go of our control, our pride, our self-absorption, our cynicism. And Jesus promises that anyone willing to struggle through the narrow gate will be welcomed into the eternal dwelling place of our Father.

Matthew 22:1-14

The wedding garment expected of us is the life-long personal commitment to follow Jesus Christ. We are weaving our garments by the way we live each day. The proper wedding garment must include an attitude of kindness and love, of mutual respect and forgiveness, a life of generosity to the less fortunate, and a life of selflessness.

Matthew 20:1-16

Transform us, O God, into a people of gratitude. Help us to embrace a perspective that sees your hand at work in all things and realize the good things with which you have blessed our lives. In appreciating what we have received, may we begin to fill the emptiness and poverty of our lives.

Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Luke 1:39-56

The song of praise we hear in today’s Gospel, the Magnificat, is the result of a woman of deep prayer and recognition of God in creation. All throughout her song of praise, she sees the hand of God in places where we would not expect to find him. On this feast, we realize that what God has done for Mary is what God desires for us.
