March 31 : Easter Sunday - We are an Easter people

March 27th, 2013

Easter means experiencing the power of Jesus changing a great tragedy in our lives into a glorious new beginning. Therefore let us experience Easter in our lives each time we fall and fail, each time we want to give up, each time we want to cry and give into frustration. Jesus Can change us, he can bring us new life again. Therefore can we dare to start afresh from Christ? That's the challenge of Easter.

March 29 : Good Friday - In the Cross is our Salvation

March 26th, 2013

As we look up to the cross today and contemplate Jesus dying to make the full payment for our sins, let us thank him, and let us promise him that our whole lives will be one unbroken song of thanksgiving to him who gave his life to make full payment for the immeasurable debt we owe to God. This will give us strength to carry our little crosses with love and faith

March 28 : Maunday Thursday: Jesus Our Bread

March 25th, 2013

Today is the day of the "Maundy," the mandatum, "the new commandment" of love. It is the special day of friendship, and the traditional ceremonies of the day - the washing of feet, the blessing of oils for the sick, and so on - all reinforce that thought. Above all, it is the day of the banquet, the celebration of friends, in which our divine friend gives himself in the Eucharist, that we may dwell in him, and he in us. It is the moment of friends rejoicing together before the pain of tomorrow. Today is also the day where Jesus established the priesthood. Let us thank God for all these gifts for His Church.

March 24 : Passion Sunday: Marching with Jesus

March 20th, 2013

Indeed, we have reached the climax of the liturgical year, the highest peak of salvation history, when all that has been anticipated and promised is to be fulfilled. By the close of today’s long Gospel, the work of our redemption will have been accomplished, the new covenant will be written in the blood of His broken body hanging on the cross at the place called the Skull. The palms that we use today should be sings that we are willing to follow and march with Jesus not only in moments of glory but also in times of fall and agony.

March 17: Fifth Sunday of Lent : Start afresh from Christ

March 14th, 2013

Jesus shows a God who is rich in mercy (dives in misericordia). The completeness of his forgiveness is most incredible in the words:“neither I condemn you”. Jesus forgives the sinner without condoning the sin. Jesus takes away the weeping from this woman’s heart and fills her with hope and new life which God alone can bring. Isaiah’s new deal is confirmed by Jesus. He takes a wasted soul to urn it fruitful in grace. We can catch her sentiments in the words of Isaiah as presented in the 1st Reading: it must have been like water been found suddenly in the desert and rivers started flowing suddenly in the wasteland. Jesus gave a second chance to the sinful woman. He knew that she had made a mess of her life, but life was not all over for her. She could rebuild her life back again. We are called upon to lay aside our past (sinful past), our brokenness, our failures, the mistakes we have done at the feet of Jesus and to start a fresh from him and so to experience the difference.

March 10: 4th Sunday of Lent - Reconciliation

March 6th, 2013

 

In Baptism, we’re given a divine birthright, made “a new creation,” as Paul puts it in today’s Epistle. But when we sin, we’re like the prodigal, quitting our Father’s house, squandering our inheritance in trying to live without Him.

Lost in sin, we cut ourselves off from the grace of sonship lavished upon us in Baptism. It is still possible for us to come to our senses, make our way back to the Father, as the prodigal does. And Lent is the acceptable time to do just that.

March 3rd : Thired Sunday of Lent: Repentance

March 1st, 2013

The patience of God super abounds the Judgement of God. The longer a barren tree is left to grow, the greater the mischief it would perpetuate. Therefore it needs to be cut off. But God is so generous to give us a second chance so that we might not only bear fruits of good works but also rend our hearts and come back to God with repentance.
