My Gospel Reflections for Monday October 31: Luke 14:12-14

My Reflections:
Jesus’ contradicts us on how we normally invite people to dine in our house. Isn’t that we have not yet invited a poor stranger to dine for lunch or dinner? Yes, we have given food to the poor but we haven’t invited someone yet.

Who are those that we normally invite? Of course our friends & relatives for this is our normal human nature and there’s nothing wrong with this. But Jesus points us to something that we often neglect, something that we often times purposely forget. And they’re the poor and unwanted; Jesus is pointing us to them for that is where He dwells.

In the story of the last judgment the King said: Whenever you did this to one of the least, you did this to me. (Matthew 25:40)

Have we given help to a poor stranger?

My Gospel Reflections for Friday October 28: Luke 6:12-16


My Reflections:
What do we do before making important decisions in our lives? Do we first pray over it and ask the guidance of the Lord? Or we just make important decisions without  asking the blessings of the Lord.

Before deciding to choose the twelve apostles Jesus went up first to the mountain to pray He spent the whole night in prayer to God. This is the attitude of Jesus, He withdraws to a solitary place to commune with God and He asks for God’s guidance and blessings.  With the blessing from God the apostles (except for Judas Iscariot) became His partner in advancing the faith. 

Let us not make Jesus irrelevant in our lives by not praying to Him let us make time for Him. 

In our secularist world today Jesus still matters. …

My Gospel Reflections for Monday October 24: Luke 13:10-17

My Reflections:
With Jesus there is no Sabbath or holy days, what is important for Him is to give help. That’s why He cured the woman who had been under the influence of Satan for eighteen long years.

This must also be our attitude in giving help we must not allow ourselves to be restricted by anyone and we must not choose those whom we will help. For as long as there is someone who needs help let us help. Let us not mind what others may say against us what is important is we are able to give help.

After giving help Jesus faced His detractors who were criticizing Him for healing the woman during the Sabbath day and they were humiliated. ...
