Jesus knew his arrest and death were likely, yet he held fast to his decision to travel to Jerusalem. He knew it was likely that he would be arrested. He also suspected that he might even die.

Reflection: Luke 9:46-50 THE DOME BLOG - September 26, 2016 Monday of the 26th Week in Ordinary Time - Luke 9:46-50 Today's Gospel presents a scene that likely is familiar to us. The disciples were arguing about which of them was the greatest. Sound familiar? Jesus was listening to them. Luke writes: "Jesus realized the intention of their hearts."

Yet, here they were having ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/09/reflection-luke-946-50.html

Reflection: Luke 16:19-31 THE DOME BLOG - September 25, 2016 The 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time - Luke 16:19-31 Today's Gospel is the story of Lazarus and the rich man. This is another story we are very familiar with. Lazarus is a poor man whose body was covered with sores. Lazarus begged right outside the door of a rich man's house.

Reflection: Luke 9:43b-45 THE DOME BLOG - September 24, 2016 Saturday of the 25th Week in Ordinary Time - Luke 9:43b-45 The Gospel today is the continuation of the conversation that Jesus had with his disciples in yesterday's reading. Jesus tells the apostles to listen up. He knows that the road ahead of him is going to be very difficult and also troubling for them. They had been with Jesus on the journey for a long time so they had to be aware of the conflict between Jesus and the Sanhedrin. I wonder what the apostles' conversation ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/09/reflection-luke-943b-45.html

Reflection: Luke 9:7-9 THE DOME BLOG - September 22, 2016 Thursday of the 25th Week in Ordinary Time - Luke 9:7-9 The primary character in today's Gospel is Herod the Tetrarch. Herod had heard stories about Jesus' preaching throughout Judea. He also had heard of how Jesus healed people with a touch or a word.

Others said: "Elijah has appeared;" and others stated that ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/09/reflection-luke-97-9_22.html

Reflection: Matthew 9:9-13 THE DOME BLOG - September 21, 2016 Feast of Saint Matthew, Apostle and Evangelist - Matthew 9:9-13 Today we celebrate the feast of St. Matthew. The Gospel reading for today is about the call of Matthew. Jesus saw Matthew as he walked by Matthew's custom post.

Many tax collectors and sinners also were invited to the meal and sat in the midst ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/09/reflection-matthew-99-13.html

Reflection: Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus BIG C CATHOLICS - September 21, 2016 Here is a reflection on this Sunday's Gospel reading from the Gospel of Luke: SCRIPTURE: "There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every day. At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores and longing to eat what fell from the rich man's table. Even the dogs came and licked his sores. "The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham's side. The rich man also ...http://www.bigccatholics.com/2016/09/reflection-parable-of-rich-man-and.html

Saturday – A Hidden Meaning Yesterday we heard Jesus' prediction of His death and resurrection. Today we learn more about the disciples' lack of understanding. Luke tells us, "But they did not understand this saying; its meaning was hidden from them so that they should not understand it..." The Greek word for "hidden" here is parakaluptō . It is made up of a root word meaning "hide" and a prefix that indicates "from close-beside." So the word suggests something ...http://thecatholicscholar.blogspot.com/2016/09/reflection-for-25th-week-in-ordinary_21.html

Wednesday, September 21, 2016 FR. CARMEN MELE, O.P.: TODAY'S HOMILETTE - September 20, 2016 ... and evangelist (Ephesians 4:1-7.11-13; Matthew 9:9-13) Nothing can be said about St. Matthew with certainty besides that he composed a gospel. Today's gospel passage speaks of a tax-collector named Matthew being called by Jesus. Evidently this tax-collector is considered the evangelist because one tradition speaks of a certain Matthew as a compiler of sayings about Jesus. Whoever he (or perhaps she) was, the person is owed a great deal of ...http://cbmdominicanpreacher.blogspot.com/2016/09/wednesday-september-21-2016.html

After ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/09/reflection-luke-819-21.html

Reflection: Luke 8:16-18 THE DOME BLOG - September 19, 2016 Monday of the Twenty-fifth Week in Ordinary Time - Luke 8:16-18 Today's Gospel is very short; it is just a few verses.

St. Andrew Kim Taegon, St. Paul Chong and Companions, Korean Martyrs CATHOLIC FIRE - September 19, 2016 ... intellectually, but it remains underground in the North. "The Korean Church is unique because it was founded entirely by laypeople. This fledgling Church, so young and yet so strong in faith, withstood wave after wave of fierce persecution. Thus, in less than a century, it could boast of 10,000 martyrs. The death of these many martyrs became the leaven of the Church and led to today's splendid flowering of the Church in Korea. Even today their undying spirit sustains the ...http://catholicfire.blogspot.com/2016/09/st-andrew-kim-taegon-st-paul-chong-and.html

Reflection: Luke 16:10-13 THE DOME BLOG - September 18, 2016 The Twenty-Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time - Luke 16:10-13 Today's Gospel is a "woe to you" gospel. Jesus is berating the Pharisees for their lack of openness to him and to his message. Even before Jesus began to preach, the Pharisees had tried, judged, and condemned him. Most of us, if not all of us, have a "Pharisee" within us. Judging others seems to be part of our human condition. Often I am not even aware of the judgments I am making ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/09/reflection-luke-1610-13.html

Reflection for the 25th Week in Ordinary Time, Part 1 THE CATHOLIC SCHOLAR - September 18, 2016 Monday – Shine "Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father." Today's Gospel acclamation reminds us that we are called to shine in this often dark, dreary world. We are called to shine God's light into every place we go and upon every person we meet. To do this, we have to become transparent. We have to scrub away sin, wipe away worry, and polish up our virtues. We need to get rid of anything ...http://thecatholicscholar.blogspot.com/2016/09/reflection-for-25th-week-in-ordinary.html

Reflection: Luke 8:1-3 THE DOME BLOG - September 16, 2016 Friday of the Twenty-Fourth Week in Ordinary Time - Luke 8:1-3 Today's Gospel speaks of Jesus being on the road again. Luke chronicles Jesus's journey from one village to another. In each town Jesus went to, he preached and shared the good news of the kingdom.

Today may we ask ourselves: what is the good ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/09/reflection-luke-81-3.html

Reflection: John 19:25-27 THE DOME BLOG - September 15, 2016 Our Lady of Sorrows - John 19:25-27 Today is the memorial of "Our Lady of Sorrows." This devotion to Mary dates from the 14th century. The Gospel today depicts Mary standing at the foot of the cross watching her son die a horrible death.

Mary ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/09/reflection-john-1925-27.html
