Readings for today

Today's gospel appears to state the obvious.  A lamp is not good if it is unseen.  If it gives off no light, it is no good. This seems more than obvious.  Of course.  But when we think about the light of faith, do we share that, or hide it? Do we want others to leave darkness behind? Or do we want to leave them in darkness?

Readings for Today

I am one of those who was a little sceptical of the sanctity of Saint Padre Pio.  There seemed to be a lot of questions for me, and for the Church, around the authenticity of his holiness.  But what could not be denied was the way in which Padre Pio led people to God.  And is not that the definition of a saint? One who is so holy the witness of life leads people to God?

Readings for Today

Today's first reading could easily describe the current climate in our country.  How many feel envy, rivalry, insults, evil suspicions, and mutual friction? How often do we hear insulting words about positions that we do not share? It is much easier to shame than it is to argue convincingly for the truth.

Readings for Today

There are some people who are very clever.  They speak eloquently. We might even admire what they say.  But we can never confuse this with faith.  Faith is not always about the right words, smart thought, or philosophy. Faith is faith.  It is about believing and trusting in God.

Readings for Today

Saint John Chrysostom.  The Golden Tongue.  But not such an easy person to live with.  For preachers, today reminds us that it is rarely, if ever, about us.  It is about the Holy Spirit.  And the temptation is to think, as preachers, that if we can just be a little more clever, a little more clear, we too will have great success with the people of God.
