Reflection: Matthew 23:13-22 THE DOME BLOG - August 22, 2016 Monday of the 21st Week in Ordinary Time - Matthew 23:13-22 Today's Gospel is really a downer! It is the passage in which Jesus berates the scribes and the Pharisees and accuses them of being hypocrites. They act holy, but they often take advantage of the individuals who have much less than they do. Their actions do not always exemplify what they preach. All of us have a Pharisee within us. It would be wonderful if we always practiced what we preached. ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/08/reflection-matthew-2313-22.html

God Seems Far Away REFLECTIONS OF AN RSCJ - August 20, 2016 My reflection today is triggered by Karl Rahner who talks about how our hearts can be so inert, tired, worn out with everyday things. God may seem far away; we can feel incapable of loving as Jesus asks us to love - "Love one another as I have loved you"! Well, we cannot love as Jesus asks unless we seek this love from Him. We must pray for this love and God will answer our prayer by pouring out this love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit. God must ...http://reflectionsofanrscj.blogspot.com/2016/08/god-seems-far-away.html

Peter is not shy! He asks Jesus how many times he needs to forgive, how many times he should forgive. Only Peter would have the courage to ask Jesus this question!

Reflection for the 18th Week of Ordinary Time, Part 1 THE CATHOLIC SCHOLAR - July 31, 2016 ... understand. It's a love that stands outside time and space yet reaches in to interact with the beloved.
