Luke’s Telling of Jesus’ Passion

Today at Palm Sunday Mass we listen attentively to Luke’s telling of the story about Jesus’ suffering and death; what we more commonly call the “passion of Christ.” As we can well expect, Luke has his own way of narrating the plot to kill Jesus (Luke 22:14-23:56). From the start of the action, Judas  is...

The Holiest Week Begins Today

HOLY WEEK commences today, PALM SUNDAY. From the biblical perspective,  “holy” implies that which is “set apart” or “different”.

Jesus’ Agony in the Garden

As we approach the holiest of weeks and holiest of days, it is important to take time to consider Jesus’ words and actions. Jesus takes upon Himself all of our sins. He accepts our sins as if they are His very own. In doing so, Jesus offers to pay personally all the debts we incur...

Christian as Soul of Prayer

Jesus expects His followers to spend time with Him and to talk regularly and comfortably with Him. Prayer is our on-going conversation with God. Saint Therese of Lisieux, the Little Flower of Jesus, describes prayer more poetically: “For me, prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a...
