Holy Thursday - Feast Day of the Lord’s Supper
Last edited 22nd April 2014

Except for the resurrection on Easter, Holy Thursday is possibly one of the most important, complex, and profound days of celebration in the Catholic Church. Holy Thursday celebrates the institution of the Eucharist as the true body and blood of Jesus Christ and the institution of the sacrament of the priesthood.

A Reflection on Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane for Holy Week
Last edited 15th April 2014

The narrative of Our Lord's Passion begins in the Garden of Gethsemane and presents a very good stance for Holy Week, indeed for the whole of our life. Jesus was at prayer, and returning to his disciples found them asleep. He says to Peter and the others (and to us), "Watch and pray so that you may not undergo the test. The spirit is indeed willing but the flesh is weak." (Matt 26:41)

Are you ready to accompany Jesus in these final days before His Crucifixion? Will you follow Him in good times, as well as times of suffering?

I’ll Take Back what the Devil Stole from Me. A Homily for the 5th Sunday of Lent
Last edited 6th April 2014

In the Gospel for Sunday 6 April, we hear the story of the raising of Lazarus from the dead. The story is a significant turning point in the ministry of Jesus, for as we shall see, it is because of this incident that the Temple leadership in Jerusalem resolves to have Jesus killed.


Ten Ways to Deepen Our Relationship with God
Last edited 4th April 2014

Over the years I've heard from many good people who want a closer relationship with God. But they're stymied by what they perceive as God's silence. What they often mean, without knowing it, is that they'd like God to do something dramatic in their lives; something with a hint of Mt. Sinai that proves his credentials.
