God’s mercy and compassion is central to Pope Francis’ message
One of the early messages of Pope Francis was that the Church must become more pastoral and less dogmatic. God’s mercy and compassion continue to be central to Pope Francis’ message.
The importance of context
Our Gospel for this Second Sunday of Advent opens with the setting of historical markers, to establish the context of the ministry of John the Baptist, who in turn was to establish the coming of the Messiah.
Chuck Feeney, soon to be 88 years old, is known as the secret billionaire.
‘Do good to those who hate you’
C.S. Lewis’ book, “The Four Loves,” gives us a good springboard for our reflections. Lewis discusses the four loves: storge, the love of affection and empathy; philia, the love between friends; eros, the love of a man for a woman; and agape, the unconditional love of God, benevolent love towards all.
The call of Christ is a return to the essentials
My spiritual director in the seminary once told me that sin is forgetfulness. Adam giving in to the temptation of eating the forbidden fruit was forgetting the rest of creation that God had given him to use for his needs, forgetting the generosity of a gracious God. Peter denying Christ forgets their three years of friendship and journeying together in mission.
The Good Shepherd as mentor
Every year during Easter, we celebrate Good Shepherd Sunday. The Good Shepherd is one of the earliest images of Christianity, often associated with servant leadership. Let us reflect on this from the perspective of mentoring.
A time for renewal in the Church
Recently, an advice of Pope Francis to priests to keep our homilies to 10 minutes made the rounds of the internet. (Fr. Joe Galdon, SJ, used to tell us in the seminary, “There are no souls saved after seven minutes,” while Fr. Jim Donelan, SJ, trained us, or at least tried to, on the one-point homily.)

The deal of God’s mercy
Many people long for a safe place where they can reveal themselves without fear of being judged. Today’s Gospel on the woman caught committing adultery dramatically lays out the safest of all places, the mercy and forgiveness of God.
Grace is given to the humble
Last Monday, the Gospel reading was about the centurion (Luke 7:1-10) who interceded for his slave. It is interesting to note that this centurion was an outsider among the Jewish community. A perfect candidate to be hated, being the Roman conqueror and an officer at that. As the story unravels, though, he defies all expectations or stereotypes. He is the kindest person you could meet. He helps the Jewish community and goes out of his way to plead for the healing of his slave. Talking about genuine kindness and humility, this centurion is worth emulating.
