5th Sunday of Easter, May 2, 2021 – Bread of Life Bible Study 

In the Passover meal,  the fruit of the vine was a symbol of God’s goodness to his people. Love and forgiveness are decisions we can make by accepting the cross of Christ. Until we accept the love and forgiveness of our God through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus, we cannot forgive truly from the heart.

Jesus appears to His disciples and tells them to look at his hands and feet and to touch Him. He is not a ghost; He is alive and well. He is alive in Eucharist and His Word.

His body was immortal like the kind we will be given at the resurrection of the dead.

Pondering Christ’s Crucifixion by Jackie France

Pondering on the Crucifixion of Our Lord – Jackie France

Jesus enters His last hours. He goes like a lamb to the slaughter. He completes the work the Father has given Him to do. How am I to respond?

Luke 2:19 tells us “And Mary kept all these things, reflecting on them in her heart.”  Some Bible versions say, “She pondered.” The original Greek word for ponder is sumballo which means to “throw together.” Think of these meditations as a throwing together of thoughts, ideas, and reflections related to a particular topic.  They are not meant to be teachings, but rather invitations and perhaps helps to reflecting more deeply in your own heart.

4th Sunday of Ordinary Time Jan 31

Jesus was in full authority because he was in full obedience to His Father's will. Jesus was in full authority because he was in full obedience to His Father’s will. We can always have access to His authority as long as we are doing the will of His Father. We can cast out demons, heal the sick, or give sight to the blind in Jesus’ name. Jesus’ fourfold ministry was to teach, preach, cast out evil spirits and heal the sick.

“There is a famine today that is raging across this great land of ours. There is a deep hunger and thirst for the healing Word of God … With humility, boldness, and energy, we must personally hear the Word, pray the Word, study the Word, proclaim the Word, and live the Word of the Lord Jesus Christ.” (from Introduction for The Bread of Life Bible Study)

It is based on the Bread of Life Catholic Bible Study and presented by the coauthor, Marie Finn.Deacon Ken Finn said in a previous commentary regarding these readings that “Today’s gospel is about the joy, excitement and power of discovering the Messiah.” Marie Finn said, “I think that sums up this Second Sunday of Ordinary Time!”  When we discover Jesus and spend time with Him on a daily basis it becomes ordinary Kingdom Living. We are not of the world, we are in the world and knowing Jesus we just automatically want to tell people about him and especially how much he loves us.

“There is a famine today that is raging across this great land of ours. There is a deep hunger and thirst for the healing Word of God … With humility, boldness, and energy, we must personally hear the Word, pray the Word, study the Word, proclaim the Word, and live the Word of the Lord Jesus Christ.” (from Introduction for The Bread of Life Bible Study)

Evangelization – A 3 Minute Meditation

Today’s topic is “Evangelization”.Evangelization – 3 Minute Meditations

Today’s topic is “Evangelization”. The words and writings of recent Popes have made “evangelization” a more common word in the Church today. What does it really mean and how do we evangelize? You might be surprised to find you are already an evangelist. Do you know what you are evangelizing?

Luke 2:19 tells us “And Mary kept all these things, reflecting on them in her heart.”  Some Bible versions say, “She pondered.” The original Greek word for ponder is sumballo which means to “throw together.” Think of these 3-minute meditations as a throwing together of thoughts, ideas, and reflections related to a particular topic.  They are not meant to be teachings, but rather invitations and perhaps helps to reflecting more deeply in your own heart.
