Reflection: Mark 9:2-10 THE DOME BLOG - March 1, 2015 Second Sunday of Lent - Mark 9:2-10 This Gospel reading is the account of Jesus' transfiguration. It is quite a remarkable scene.

Reflection: Mark 1:12-14 THE DOME BLOG - February 22, 2015 First Sunday of Lent – Mark 1:12-15 Today's Gospel is only a few lines long. It is only 4 verses from the 1st Chapter of Mark's Gospel.

As I have mentioned in the past, I get an email from Daily Gospel Online that contains the daily mass readings and a short reflection tied to them. A number of times I have posted these reflections here. The problem, however, is that it is easy for me to get behind. Previously, I have fallen a few days, a week, or even two weeks behind. In those cases, by an act of will I was able ...http://vox-nova.com/2015/02/22/reading-advent-in-lent/

Reflection: Mark 8:14-21 THE DOME BLOG - February 17, 2015 Sunday of the Sixth Week in Ordinary Time – Mark 8:14-21 In today's Gospel, the apostles are a bit absent-minded: they forgot to bring any food along for the journey. Among them, they only had one loaf of bread. How was this going to feed all of them? These were men who had hearty appetites and they liked to be well fed.

Jesus however was not concerned about ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/02/reflection-mark-814-21.html

But there is so much more than ethnicity that we can construct to keep divisions alive. On this reflection and prayer for Christian unity, we should ask ourselves when it is that we are similar to the Samaritan woman's question of skepticism. When do we look and think that dealings are impossible with other Christians? When does the sin that we have committed and that has been committed against us lead us to not see the image of God in the people we encounter? We ...http://www.calledtocommunion.com/2015/01/week-of-prayer-for-christian-unity-2015-day-seven-give-me-to-drink/
