Reflection for the 18th Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

In the gospel today, the people fail to realize that Jesus is the sign of God’s presence, in their midst.  All around us there is a preoccupation with hunger for material goods.  But in this gospel Jesus’ words help us to realize that food is but basic fodder and that if we are really to […]

Reflection for the 17th Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

In the gospel today, through the power and prayer of the Lord, the impossible becomes possible.  What is given to Jesus as a sacrifice is given back by him totally transformed.  One message to be taken to heart from the miraculous feeding of the crowd is the importance of sharing what we have with those […]

Reflection for 16th Sunday of Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

Throughout the Gospel, in in today’s passage in particular, we can all draw a lesson from the open-hearted behavior of Christ in placing the needs of others before his own.  And if we identify ourselves as one of his followers, by virtue of our baptismal calling, all of us have Christian responsibilities and a certain […]

Reflection for 15th Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

The sending out of the twelve apostles was but the beginning of the Church’s mission to the world.   If the word of God is to reach all people then everyone who hears it must make it known.  The Good News of salvation is not intended to be guarded jealousy but to be spread around and […]

Reflection for the 14th Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

Although we might think that the people of Nazareth were pretty inconsiderate when they turned their back on Jesus.  But in thinking like that we fail to see that every day we can be guilty of this type of behaviour. We fail to acknowledge the presence of God among the people we interact with on a […]

Reflection for the 13th Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

The gospel today portrays an example of the healing power of Christ in an uncommonly moving scene, with Jairus, the synagogue official pleading for Jesus to heal his little daughter.  Jesus responds without hesitation and does not allow anything to deter his journey to their home, where he restores the child to full health. The […]

Reflection for the 12th Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

The power of a stormy sea is overwhelming and can become a frightening ordeal.  We all have experienced fear, so we can appreciate the plight of the apostles in the storm-tossed boat.  We can thoroughly connect with this story today, when we look at our own lives and the troubles, disappointments and misfortunes that come […]

Reflection for the 11th Sunday in Ordinary Time

By St. Pius X | News

The readings today are concerned with spiritual growth.  They speak of the importance of us coming to God in prayer and good works in order to grow in God’s favour and friendship.  God is at work in every age and in each of our lives.  The seed of his word was first planted in our […]

Reflection for the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ

By St. Pius X | News

The gospel reading tells us of the simple beginnings of the Mass, how Jesus, on the night he was to be betrayed, celebrated the Eucharist, his final meal, with his disciples.  He took time to eat this meal with them so that they could share in and be part of his work.  From that time […]

Reflection for the Feast of the Most Holy Trinity

By St. Pius X | News

Today’s feast of the most Holy Trinity celebrates the mystery of three persons in the one God, all bonded together by love.  It fills us with awe and open-eyed reverence, for we do not have a God whose limits we can define.  In the Trinity our minds are brought into loving contact with the complexity […]
