Doctrines & Morals

The kingdom as a gift
By FR JULIUS OLAITAN              Sun, 24 Sep 2017
25th Sunday A   GOD’S WAYS ARE HIGHER   My dear friends in Christ, when you

My Life is a seed
By Archdiocesan Priest              Sat, 23 Sep 2017
We can talk about today’s parable in two stages. The first is with emphasis on the sower sowing. He scatters the seed all over – as Jesus is now doing with the people. Some of it falls

Being a part of the Kingdom
By Archdiocesan Priest              Fri, 22 Sep 2017
Today’s Gospel reading is one of those summary passages describing in general terms the work of Jesus. He is accompanied by the chosen Twelve, his co-operators in the preaching of the word and the e

Stand up and Go there
By Archdiocesan Priest              Thu, 21 Sep 2017
Tax collectors have a very poor reputation in the Gospel. They are numbered among the groups of outcasts with whom no decent person would have any contact. Yet, in today’s Gospel, we see Jesu

Wisdom is YOU
By Archdiocesan Priest              Wed, 20 Sep 2017
Jesus, in the Gospel of today, criticizes the self-contradictory attitudes of those who reject both him and John. They have simply closed their ears and want to hear nothing and learn nothing. We o

Raise a person up
By Archdiocesan Priest              Tue, 19 Sep 2017
Today’s Gospel presents a pathetic situation – a woman, who has already lost her husband, has now lost her only son and the only means of her support. Jesus meets her on her way to bury

I am not worthy
By Archdiocesan Priest              Mon, 18 Sep 2017
Jesus on arrival at Capernaum is met with a request for healing. The slave of the Centurion, who was very dear to him, had fallen seriously ill. Undoubtedly, he had heard the stories of what Jesus had

10 Our Lady of Sorrows
By Archdiocesan Priest              Fri, 15 Sep 2017
Today’s feast is clearly linked with yesterday’s feast – the Exaltation of the Cross. One can hardly imagine the pain and grief that Mary must have undergone to see her only Son d

11 The Exaltation of the Cross
By Archdiocesan Priest              Thu, 14 Sep 2017
Today, the Church celebrates the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross – the symbol of God’s love for us expressed by the self-sacrificing death of Jesus, his Incarnate Son. In the

12 The Reverse Case
By Archdiocesan Priest              Wed, 13 Sep 2017
It is obvious the Gospel reading of today is the Lukan version of the Matthean beatitudes. Something the Lord Jesus wants us to understand is found in the way the blessings (beatitudes) stand oppos

13 Prayer First
By Archdiocesan Priest              Tue, 12 Sep 2017
Jesus, we are told, went up into the mountains to pray and spent the whole night there in prayer to God. Some might wonder what Jesus would have to pray about. Such a question may reveal a limited

14 Choose to do Good
By Archdiocesan Priest              Mon, 11 Sep 2017
There seems to be no end to the confrontation between Jesus and the Pharisees. Jesus had gone into the local synagogue, as was his practice on the Sabbath, and began to teach. Right in front of him

15 If he listens
By FR JULIUS OLAITAN              Sun, 10 Sep 2017
23rd Sunday A   IF HE LISTENS My dear brothers and sisters, the Lord reminds us to

16 The Spirit of the Law
By Archdiocesan Priest              Sat, 09 Sep 2017
We have yet another confrontation between Jesus and some Pharisees. They asked the disciples, “Why are you doing something that is forbidden on the sabbath day?” Jesus answers very quic

17 The Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary
By Archdiocesan Priest              Fri, 08 Sep 2017
The Gospel reading is the genealogy of Jesus as given by Matthew. It represents the very diverse history of loyalty and infidelity which was the story of God’s people. Jesus,

18 Answering the Call to Discipleship
By Archdiocesan Priest              Thu, 07 Sep 2017
We are told that Jesus was standing by the shore of Lake Gennesaret and because of the large crowds pressing in on him to hear the word of God; he was forced to borrow one of two boats moored near

19 Let us Embody Christ to Others
By Archdiocesan Priest              Wed, 06 Sep 2017
From the synagogue in yesterday’s Gospel, Jesus in today’s Gospel goes straight to Peter’s house. Peter’s mother-in-law was in the grip of a fever and the disciples begged J

20 Sharing in the Authority of Christ
By Archdiocesan Priest              Tue, 05 Sep 2017
After the event of yesterday’s Gospel, Jesus moves on to Capernaum. As in Nazareth, he taught the people in the synagogue on the Sabbath and showed his authority. It was not the authority of

21 Get behind me
By FR JULIUS OLAITAN              Sun, 03 Sep 2017
22nd SUNDAY A   Get behind me   My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, today as we celeb

By Archdiocesan Priest              Thu, 31 Aug 2017
Staying awake as a mental activity does not mean idleness. The motto of Boy's Scout says a similar thing when it says; "Be prepared always". Christian life is a way of life and not a title or cloth

By Archdiocesan Priest              Wed, 30 Aug 2017
The phenomenon of Identity crisis is something that has gripped many Christians of our time. We appear religious, but our hearts are rotten with unthinkable iniquities. It is either we are cold or

By Archdiocesan Priest              Tue, 29 Aug 2017
Do you court favour with the rich and the famous?  Scripture warns us of such danger (see Proverbs 23:1-2).  King Herod had respected and feared John the Baptist as a great prophet and se

By Archdiocesan Priest              Mon, 28 Aug 2017
Paul as well as Jesus were forthright in correcting the Christians at Thessalonica and scribes and Pharisees respectively. Unfortunately, we still find logs of hypocrisy among us Christians. People

26 On this rock
By FR JULIUS OLAITAN              Sun, 27 Aug 2017
21st Sunday A   ON THIS ROCK  

By Archdiocesan Priest              Fri, 25 Aug 2017
As Gods love has no boundaries, so our love for one another should be without boundaries {race, religion, gender}. With this disposition, we can unite ourselves with our fellow human beings who are

By Archdiocesan Priest              Thu, 24 Aug 2017
From the response of Jesus, we understand that we cannot hide from God's presence. God's choices are divinely arranged, not for what we are at the moment, but for what we will become under his guid

By Archdiocesan Priest              Tue, 22 Aug 2017
In the Gospel, we see the fulfillment of the prophecy of Isaiah. Also, we have the story of the Annunciation, wherein half of the 'Hail Mary' is extracted. Mary's body did not decay in the grave as

By Archdiocesan Priest              Mon, 21 Aug 2017
We can liken our lives to those of the Israelites. Our love for God should translate into obedience to God's laws, not to avert punishment but for the sake of our unmerited adoption. The man in the
