Thirty-First Sunday – 31 October 2010

Gospel: : Luke 19: 1-10. Year C There was a man named Zaccheus…. He is a small man … he will have to climb a tree to see Jesus! Zaccheus: his name means ”God remembers”. Rightly, You will remember him, Jesus, all the more so because Your preferences are for the small people … and also for sinners, as in the case of Zaccheus. His profession cast him in the category of sinner, because there was the permanent temptation to make money at the expense of others, and it put him in contact with pagans, the Roman occupiers. For You, Lord, he is a lost sheep who must be brought back to the fold… he is a son of Abraham whose dignity must be restored. Grant us this same insight, Your insight, for seeing others, and not to “categorise”...

Thirtieth Sunday – 24 October 2010

Gospel : Luke 18 : 9 – 14 Year C Certain people prided themselves on being virtuous… The Evangelist does not specify who these people are, Lord… It’s easy to rush to thinking about the Pharisees of Your day …. and to forget that Your words are addressed to every one of us to-day! Could I not also be one of these people? My God, I thank You…. It is a good thing to know how to give thanks … and it is important to do so, provided we remain in truth and humility. The Pharisee of the parable gives thanks because he is not like the others …. He contemplates himself in the deforming mirror of his pride; it is not a prayer that this man has come to say at the Temple. Faced with God, he looks...

Twenty-Ninth Sunday – 17 October 2010

Gospel : Luke 18 : 1 – 18 Year C You need to pray continually …. You remind us to-day of an important message, Jesus. Prayer is the breath of our spiritual life; it is the dialogue between a child and his father. In prayer, anything goes, everything is food for this dialogue : love, praise, thanksgiving, requests also… You have given us the example of this throughout Your life, and You continue now through the Mystery of the Eucharist. There, You invite us to be united with You, to praise You and to intercede with You. Pray without becoming discouraged …. The motif of this prayer is the fatherly goodness of God. If a judge without either faith or law ends up by doing justice for a poor woman … in order to get rid of her, how...

Twenty-Eighth Sunday – 10 October 2010

Gospel: Luke 17: 11-19 Year C Jesus was crossing Samaria and Galilee You go up to Jerusalem, You go towards death and resurrection…. to bring the whole world with You into the Father’s house. Samaria and Galilee which You cross are the image of the world. Samaritans are the foreigners; in Galilee, Jews and pagans are mingled. You have come to free us all from leprosy of sin and offer divine life to everyone. Jesus, Master, have pity on us! The lepers express their distress; they don’t ask for either healing, nor alms …. They put their trust in You, Lord…. In this alone they are already a model of prayer. In my hardships, in my difficulties, do I know how to look to You? Do I know how to submit myself to You… completely? Go and show yourselves...

Twenty Seventh Sunday – 3 October 2010

Gospel: Luke 17: 5-10 Year C Increase our faith! Lord, You have just recalled for the Apostles the requirements of fraternal love; You invite them to pardon seven times a day, a brother who repents. (Lk. 17:4). But is this above their capacity? They sense the need for a stronger faith to accept such efforts, hence their prayer: increase our faith! How the understand it! We encounter the same difficulties …. Also, we address the same prayer to You. If you had faith the size of a mustard seed! You don’t respond directly to their request. In accordance with Your custom, by drawing in images which seem impossible, (here, a tree to be planted in the sea), You draw our attention to what is essential, to the mysterious power which is faith. The question is not to know the...
