Lack of Faith: In today’s Gospel, the Jews lacked faith in Jesus.  They rather believe in other prophets.  Likewise, when we profess that we have faith in Jesus, “Do we truly build our lives on His Love, Truth and Providence”?  Are we not distracted by the materialistic world, and Continue Reading

“Blindness” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus cured the beggar who was blind from birth.  While he was overjoyed at being cured, there was greater joy in being able to see Jesus, the Saviour.  The Pharisees continued to be “blind” in their faith.  Are we blind to living the Continue Reading

Humility-Truth: When we are genuinely God-centred, the Christ-like love within our hearts will be compassionate, forgiving and humble.  All our gifts, goodness of heart and faith will be used to bring peace, sow unity and serve the needs of others, especially their faith in God.  Our Self-centredness, cannot come Continue Reading

Forgiveness – Faith: When we forgive someone who has hurt us or shocked us in the wrongs he/she had done, Jesus in today’s Gospel is reminding us that we too are “hurting” God with our sins.  So, Jesus is inviting us to forgive all the time; with a compassionate Continue Reading

Familiarity – Faith: When we are close to someone in our relationship, there is a tendency to take the goodness of that person for granted.  Jesus in today’s Gospel points out this truth of His townsfolks in Nazara.  Their familiarity has blinded them from seeing Him as the Messiah.  Continue Reading

Lent 3rd Wk: Sunday 15th March, 2020

“Living Water” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus offers the Samaritan woman Himself, as the “Living Water” that quenches all our “thirsts”, and she accepted.  Do we “thirsts” for the many unnecessary things in life that do not truly “quench” our deepest thirst for God?  Do we take God’s Continue Reading
