4th Sunday of Lent

St. Pius X | News

Today’s gospel is for all time and every day. At a deeper level it reminds us that we were all born blind and were groping in spiritual darkness until at baptism we began our journey of faith in the likeness of Christ. The life we receive at baptism gives us the power to bring Christ […]

3rd Sunday in Lent

St. Pius X | News

A very human picture is painted of the encounter between Jesus and the Samaritan woman at the well. The readings today focus on water and thirst, but what exactly do water and thirst mean in the context of this gospel? It’s not just water as we know it that Jesus is talking about, but the […]

2nd Sunday in Lent

St. Pius X | News

The story of the transfiguration is a good example of the strength and assurance we can derive from prayer while facing the difficulties of life. The purpose of Christ’s ascent was to seek divine guidance in quiet prayer. If we are to get away from living the half-life, under cover of darkness, and discover what […]

1st Sunday in Lent

St. Pius X | News

To begin Lent with the story of the fall of our first parents who disobeyed the word of God by eating the forbidden fruit, should make us aware of our own sinfulness.  There is sin in our lives and will be until the end of our days.  However, all is not lost because out of […]

8th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

In today’s gospel, Jesus speaks in a very challenging and uncompromising manner when he states that we cannot serve two masters.  In a wealth of poetic imagery, he points out the danger of seeking security in material possessions rather than putting our trust in God who can be relied upon to provide everything we need.  […]

7th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

One of the greatest challenges in Christ’s teaching is to love those who hate and harm us. This passage of scripture about forgiving wrongdoers and loving our enemies must rank among the most demanding ever preached by Jesus.  Forgiving our enemies is not easy.  Not to retaliate goes against the human grain and requires great […]

6th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

One of the main criticisms levelled at church-goers is that their Sunday worship has little influence on their weekday lives.  Jesus is telling us in this gospel that getting by within the letter of the law is not what he has in mind for his followers and spells out clearly what he expects of all […]

5th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

Christ has placed his gospel into our hands and it depends on us whether or not it is proclaimed. His message is seen for what it is when we put it into practice in our lives. Truly good people who take their religion seriously may be quite unaware of the effect they have on others, […]

4th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

It may come as a disappointment to ambitious-minded people that God does not look for success gauged and measured in human terms.  The Beatitudes give us cause for reflection as they turn our normal value system upside down, forcing us to confront whether we are guided by the gospel or by the pattern set by […]
