Sometimes when we are asked to do something, we offer all kinds of excuses why we shouldn’t do it, such as: we don’t have time, the necessary material, or the ability. To think of our limitations and shortcomings gives them life and force. August, 1979

The readings for today include Acts 2:22-33, in which we hear of Peter standing before many and sharing what he had experienced with Jesus. We also read the story of the Walk to Emmaus in Luke 24:13-35, in which after recognizing Jesus, the two disciples were [...]

The gospel reading for today is John 20:19-31. Near the end, we read Jesus’ words to Thomas: “Have you come to believe because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.” These words lead to questions for our consideration. You [...]

Hosanna! Today begins Holy Week in the Christian Church, a time of remembrance of the last week of Jesus life on earth. The stories tell us that this is a week when Jesus was betrayed by a friend, denied by another, and abandoned by others. It [...]

“And Jesus wept.”

The three words in today’s gospel that seem to be meaningful for so many people are: “And Jesus wept.” Jesus – knowing in a few moments he will call Lazarus out of the tomb, knowing the Lazarus will once again be alive – wept. Some may [...]

In today's Scripture reading from John, (John 9:1,6-9,13-17,34-38), we listen to the story of Jesus healing a blind man. As one of the participants in the CCOA Lectio Divina gathering noted, it was the formerly blind man who recognized Jesus, while the fully-sighted Pharisees did not. [...]

What a wonderful and scandalous story we find in today’s gospel reading! (John 4:5-42) Jesus is once again sharing the good news – and in fact says he is the Messiah. But wait! He tells a Samaritan …. and not any Samaritan, but a Samaritan woman. [...]

What must it have been like for Peter, James and his brother, John, to see Jesus transfigured (Matthew 17:1-9)? What must it have been like to suddenly see Moses and Elijah? The disciples were charged with telling no one, yet the others must have noticed a [...]

What’s your back-up?

In Matthew 4:1-11, we read the debate between Jesus and the devil. The devil uses scripture in an attempt to sway Jesus, and Jesus responses, also using scripture. What is your back-up? Perhaps you, too, respond to temptations by quoting scripture. Or, perhaps religious tradition, family [...]

These words may well be the most important of the scripture readings for today! “Brothers and Sisters: Do you not know that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?”  1Cor.3:16 Take this in; accept it. Believe it.
