Gospel Reflection.

The door is closed against the bridemaids who did not keep vigil nor trim their lamps. The concern of the Christian

 should be readiness for the call of the Lord, to seek the light of Christ in daily living, and to keep burning brightly

 the light received at baptism. It is true wisdom to be always eagerly longing for the Lord.

Lord God,

whose days are without end

                 and whose mercies beyond counting,

keep us mindful

     that life is short and the hour of death unknown.

Let your Spirit guide our days on earth

In the ways of holiness and justice,

That we may serve you

In union with the whole Church

sure in faith, strong in hope, perfect in love,

                  And when our earthly journey is ended, lead us rejoicing into your kingdom,

where you live forever and ever,

Amen.

Mission Sunday

Through the mission of the Church, Jesus Christ himself continues to evangelize and act: her mission thus makes

 present in history the kairos, the favourable time of salvation. Through the proclamation of the Gospel, the risen

 Jesus becomes our contemporary, so that those who welcome him with faith and love can experience the

 transforming power  of his Spirit, who makes humanity and creation fruitful, even as the rain does with the earth.

“His resurrection is not an event of the past; it contains a vital power which has permeated this world. Where all

 seems to be dead, signs of the reeurrection suddenly spring up. It is an irrestible force” ( Evangelii Gaudium, 276).

The Call to Joy by Pope Francis.

‘The joy of the Gospel fills the hearts and lives of all who encounter Jesus.’ So begins Pope Francis apostolic

exhortation Evangelii Gaudium on the proclamation of the Gospel in today’s world. The Pope is encouraging every

 Christian to embark on a new chapter of evangelization that is marked by joy. He is suggesting this as an antidote to

 the desolation and anguish born of complacency, the pursuit of pleasure and a blunted conscience.

Todays Readings

Listening to the word of God enables us to acquire true wisdom. By it we learn where our true good lies, that it

 means more than silver and gold. This wisdom helps us to make the right choices in our search for the real treasure.

 We ought to pray for the ability to make the positive, radical decision for the Kingdom. Jesus asks us all.

 “Have you understood all this?”

Today’s Readings

You  have given us the good hope that after sin you will grant repentance. That God allows evil to flourish along with

 the good has always been a problem to those who know of God. In this the patience of God constrasts with the

 impatience of humans. The kingdom grows like the yeast spreading through the dough. The day of the Lord will

 reveal all. Meanwhile we wait in hope, and pray to remain faithful.

Baptism-----Belonging to God’s family.

Through baptism men and women are incorporated into Christ. They are formed into God’s people and they obtain

 forgiveness of all their sins. They are raised from their natural condition to the dignity of adopted children. They

 become a new creation through water and the Holy Spirit. Hence they are called, and are indeed, the children of

 God. Baptism is the door to life and to the kingdom of God. Christ offered this first sacrament of the new law to all

people that we might have eternal life. Further; baptism is the sacrament by which men and women are incorporated

 into the Church, built into a house where God lives, in the Spirit, into a holy nation and a royal priesthood. It is

 regrettable that the sacrament of Baptism is being described by some in media and political organizations as a

“barrier”. This contradicts the very meaning of Baptism. How just or fair, is a suggestion that discrimination against

Catholic children is a solution to the problem of insufficient supply of places in primary schools in certain parts of

the country?                                                 Taken from Mullingar Parish Bulletin.

Today’s Gospel

Today’s Gospel contains some of the most comforting and consoling words ever spoken. But who could speak them

 except God-Jesus of Nazareth, God made man? They reveal that through him, with him and in him, in the unity of

 the Blessed Trinity, we can enjoy God’s rest and peace. No matter who we are, life, let’s face it, can be hard, difficult

and burdensome. However, in the quiet of prayer, in the oasis of praying before the Blessed Sacrament, in the retreat

from the world, when we read God’s Word, we create the opportunity for God to comfort and console us. Truly,

 only in prayer can we be comforted and consoled by the Holy Spirit and experience Jesus, gentle and humble in

heart, who leads us rest by the spring of God’s grace. Blessed Mother Teresa of Kolkata said: Prayer is the test of

everything, prayer is also the source of everything, prayer is the driving force of everything, prayer is the director of

 everything. If our prayer is right everything else is right. For in prayer we find peace and rest for our souls. Finding

 time for prayer is the challenge we face. However, this much is true: the more we pray, the easier it is to pray. The

less we pray, the harder it is. And the easier it becomes, the more we will pray.             Taken from Bible Alive.

Corpus Christi

We prostrate ourselves before a God who first bent over man like the Good Samaritan to assist him and restore his

 life, and who knelt before us to wash our dirty feet. Adoring the Body of Christ means believing that there, in that

 piece of Bread, Christ is really there, and gives true sense to life, to the immense universe as to the smallest

creature, to the whole of human history as to the most brief existence. Adoration is prayer that prolongs the

celebration and Eucharistic Communion and in which the soul continues to be nourished: it is nourished with love,

 truth, peace, it is nourished with hope, because the One before whom we prostrate ourselves does not judge us, does

not crush us, but liberates and transforms us.                                         Pope Benedict XV1.

Trinity Sunday

Christians do not worship three different Gods, but one single Being that is threefold and yet remains one. We know

 that God is triune from Jesus Christ: He, the Son, speaks about his Father in heaven ( “I and the Father are one”. Jn

 10:30)  He prays to him and sends us the Holy Spirit, who is the love of the Father and the Son. That is why we are

 baptized “in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit”. ( Mt 28:19)

Pentecost Sunday.

This Sunday we celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit on the Feast of Pentecost. The account of the coming of the

 Holy Spirit in the Acts of the Apostles begin with these words: ‘When the day of Pentecost had come, they were

 altogether in one place’. These words tell us that Pentecost existed before. In other words there was already a

 Pentecost feast in Judaism, and it was during this feast that the Holy Spirit descended. ‘The law of the  Spirit

 which gives life in Jesus Christ has set me free from the law of sin and death’. Here the ‘law of the Spirit means, in

fact, ‘the law which is the Spirit’. But how does this new law of the Spirit work in practice and in what way can it be

called a ‘law’?. It works through love! The new law is nothing other than what Jesus called the ‘new commandment’.

The Holy Spirit has written the new law on our hearts by pouring his love into them. ‘God’s love has been poured

 into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us’. This love is the love with which God loves us and

 through which, at the same time he makes us love him and our neighbour. It is a new capacity to love.

                                                                          Reflection on Pentecost written by Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa.

Hope

How can we strengthen our hope/?The liturgy of this night offers some guidance. It teaches us to remember the

words Of God. The readings describe God’s faithfulness, the history of his love towards us. The living word of God is

able to invoke us in the history of love, nourishing our hope and renewing our joy. The Gospel also reminds us of

this: in order to kindle hope in the hearts of the women, the angel tells them; “Remember what (Jesus) told you”

(v.6). Remember the words of Jesus, remember all that he has done in our lives. Let us not forget his words and his

works, otherwise we will lose hope and become ”hopeless” Christians. Let us instead remember the Lord, his

goodness and his life-giving words which have touched us. Let us remember them and make them ours, to be

sentinels of the morning who know how to help others see the signs of the Risen Lord.     Pope Francis.

For this reason, on the occasion of the annualWorld Day of Migrants and Refugees. I feel compelled to draw

 the young who, in a threefold way, are defenceless: they are children, they are foreigners, and they have no means to

 protect themselves. I ask everyone to help those who, for various reasons, are forced to live far from their

 homeland and are separated from their families.                           Message from Pope Francis.

Christmas

On this night, like a burst of brilliant light, there rings out the proclamation of the Apostle. “Gods grace has been

 revealed, and it has made salvation possible for the whole human race”. The grace which was revealed in our world

 is Jesus, born of the Virgin Mary, true man and true God. He has entered our history; he has shared our journey.

He came to free us from darkness and to grant us light. In him was revealed the grace. the mercy, and the tender

 love of the Father. Jesus is Love incarnate.                                     Pope Francis.

The Coming of Jesus.

In fact, the Lord comes twice. His first coming is what we are about to commemorate, his physical birth. Then, he

 will come at the end of time, at the close of history. However, St. Bernard tells us that there is a third coming

 of the Lord: his coming o us each day: each day, the Lord visits his Church. He visits each one of us. And our soul

 also enters into his likeness: our soul comes to resemble the Church: our soul comes to resemble Mary. Therefore,

our souls are waiting in anticipation for the coming of the Lord, open souls calling out: Come, Lord! Over the course

 of these days the Holy Spirit moves in the heart of each one of us, forming this prayer within us: come, come.

                                                                                                                          Pope Francis.
