Christ is King

11-25-2018Weekly Reflection

On the final Sunday of the liturgical year we celebrate the feast of Christ the King. It’s easy to understand today’s scriptures as events that happened long ago and far away, or predictions that will come true somewhere, some day.

This Sunday’s Gospel is our final selection from Mark for this liturgical year. It is taken from the end of Jesus’ teaching in Jerusalem immediatelypreceding the account of his arrest and passion. In it Jesus gives his disciples hope to sustain them through his passion and death and any persecutionor suffering that they would encounter after his resurrection.

God's Laws

11-04-2018Weekly Reflection

God’s laws are not intended to burden or torment us. Instead, they are guideposts that point us in the direction of good living. Accordingly, good living requires loving God and loving one another. We should not follow God’s laws out of fear of what might happen if we don’t, but rather view them as a foundation for building relationships and trust with one another and with God.
