Reflection - 29th Sunday in Ordinary Time (19/10/2014)

God is one and there is no other. Therefore, we must give to God, what is God's.

In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus says to return to Ceaser what is Ceaser's, and to God what is God's. The Denarius had Ceaser's image, hence it had to be returned to Ceaser. However, as humans, we are imprinted in the image of God. Hence, we must give ourselves to God by working out God's plans and mission in this world.

Reflection - 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time (28/9/2014)

The scriptures of this Sunday tell us that we are valued and judged by what we actually do rather than what we say we will do.
Through the parable of the two sons, we are taught that deeds are what matter and not just the words.

Reflection - 23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time (7/9/2014)

The scriptures of the 23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time tell us that we should act out of love for others. Our love for others would not let us bring harm to them. However, not harming them alone is not enough. We should also correct our brothers and sisters who have done wrong.

We may not tell our neighbor that they have done wrong in fear of conflict and thinking that we may not be accepted by others for trying to correct them. But, we are called to stand for what we believe in and should help others see the path of right.
