30th Sunday In Ordinary Time

We, in many ways, are like Bartimaeus, the blind man discussed in the gospel today.  Like him, we need Jesus to help us be able to see the many blessings around us.  May we have the same courage as this blind man to beg Jesus to help us ‘see’.  Based on the readings of Jeremiah 31: 7-9; Hebrews 5: 1-6; & Mark 10: 46-52.

28th Sunday In Ordinary Time

In this vlog, Fr. MD shares his reflection on how things on earth – including our lives – do not last forever.  However, God promises we can live with Him in eternity, in the next life,  after we die.  Living with Him forever depends on how we well do during our short lives here on the earth.   Based on the readings of Wisdom 7: 7-11; Hebrews 4: 12-13; & Mark 10: 17-30.

27th Sunday In Ordinary Time

Many priests probably feel uncomfortable preaching today.  Why?  The gospel talks about divorce and priests are very aware that some people in the congregation are divorced!!   Why did the Church include this reading?  Why not just skip this difficult teaching?  This vlog will discuss in depth about this and other sticky (difficult) teachings.  Based on the readings of Genesis 2: 18-24; Hebrews 2: 9-11; & Mark 10: 2-16.
