4th Sunday of Advent, Year B

Published on December 18, 2020.

Although Mary was chosen at her conception to be the mother of Jesus, she still had to say yes to the Lord.  God would not force her if she refused to cooperate with his grace.  Lucifer, (Satan), was the Angel of light but he rebelled against God.  Our fore parents, (Adam and Eve), were created in the state of grace and yet they disobeyed God.  Jesus, the Son of God, had to overcome varied temptations during his ministry.  Thus, Mary underwent many trials, but she remained steadfast to God’s plan for her.

33rd Sunday in Ordinary time, Year A

Published on November 13, 2020.

Central to the message of today’s Gospel is not the successful business acumen of the first two servants, or the lack of it in the third servant, but our willingness to allow the grace of God in us to be fruitful as St Paul said, “the grace of God in me has not been fruitless”, (1Cor 15:10). It is our willingness to give God a chance in our lives; to ensure that one’s life is motivated by faith and not by fear.
