BE WARY OF SCANDAL!

⏰Thursday of the Twenty-Third Week of Ordinary Time 2 (13 September 2018 – Memorial of St. John Chrysostom) 📖1 Cor 8:1b-7, 11-13; Ps 139:1-3, 13-14ab, 23-24 (R.v.24b); Luke 6:27-38 May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the communion of the Holy Spirit dwell and abide with you. Amen. Do you remember that saying that, “A clear conscience fears no accusation?” It is still very much valid.

⏰Monday of the Twenty-Third Week of Ordinary Time 2 (10 September 2018) 📖1 Cor 5:1-8; Ps 5:5-6, 7, 12 (R.v.9a); Luke 6:6-11 My dear, it is the beginning of a new working week.

In order words, will he find you worthy to follow him back into eternity? I think, and rightly so, that that was the mind of St Paul in 1 Cor 7:25-31. Every other interpretation from this must be seen as secondary. We must not forget that one major problem of the Church in Corinth is that they...

HAVE YOU TOLD GOD ABOUT IT?

⏰Tuesday of the Twenty-Third Week of Ordinary Time 2 (11 September 2018) 📕1 Cor 6:1-11; Ps 149:1b-2, 3-4 3-4, 5-6a and 9b (R.v.4a); Luke 6:12-19 May the peace of Christ in all its fullness dwell with you. Amen. The Psalmist says in Psalm 34:19, “Many are the troubles of the just, but the Lord delivers them from them all.” Jesus himself says, “Come to me, all of you who work hard and who carry heavy burdens, and I will refresh you” (Matt 11:28). One problem that we normally have, as St Paul hinted in his letter to the Corinthians (cf....
