5th Sunday in Lent

St. Pius X | News

We hear the words from today’s Gospel: “The person who loves their life loses it, and the person who sacrifices their life in this world will keep it for eternal life.”  What a poor world it would be if everyone put their own personal safety, security and selfish advancement first rather than last.  It is […]

We can get angry over the simplest things in life.  I am sure people even get angry at the ATM machine if you’re not satisfied with your request.  Well, in ancient times, the money changers were the equivalent of ATM machines.  Jesus was upset with the money changers’ gouging, the exorbitant rates, the fleecing of […]

When we look at our communication with God, it isn’t hard to see the many times when we are constantly checking to see if God is listening in hopes that he will respond to our needs.  In reality he hears us, but he asks us to listen to him as well. Twice in the Gospels […]

Each of us is involved in a constant struggle against temptation.  We see from the Gospel that Jesus too was tempted.  Hence, he understands our weakness in the face of temptation.  And because He understands us, he can help us. Hence, we can approach him with confidence, knowing that we will have mercy from him […]

6th Sunday in Ordinary Time

St. Pius X | News

In biblical times lepers were treated as pariahs. Leprosy was believed to be highly contagious.   Because of this they were forced to live outside the community.   Leprosy was the ultimate uncleanness.  It made the victim an outcast not only socially, but also in the religious sphere.  Jesus broke through all the religious and social taboos […]

St. Pius X | News

The Book of Job confronts the problem of suffering.  The common explanation was that suffering was a punishment for sin.  But, though Job is a good man, he suffers greatly.  His suffering causes him to take a gloomy view of life.  This sets the scene for the Gospel.  However, what we see in the Gospel […]

In our second reading today, St. Paul says to the people in Corinth: “I want you to be free from anxieties.”  You might say to him, right, but have you met my boss, spouse, my child or my parents?  Have you seen the problems I am dealing with at work, at home, in school?  No […]
