If you have experienced or witnessed hate, and…

Jesus and Nicodemus In Chapter 3 of John’s Gospel, Nicodemus came to see Jesus under the cover of night. Nicodemus was a Pharisee, a member of the Sanhedrin, but unlike other Pharisees, he knew and secretly admitted that Jesus came from God. Unlike many people, Nicodemus did not come to see Jesus to ask for a miracle; neither did he come to spy on Jesus either; rather, he came to talk with Jesus. There is something about Jesus which compelled…

The Old Law Made Perfect Peter, James and John witnessed the Transfiguration of Jesus, where His face shone like the sun and His clothes became dazzling white as light. But that was not all. A voice from a bright cloud said: “This is my beloved Son.  Listen to him. (Mk 9:2-8; Mt 17:1-8; Lk 9:28-36)” The light emanating from Jesus and the voice coming from the cloud revealed the divine glory and beauty of Jesus Christ. The sequence of events…

When we pray the Lord’s Prayer and say “lead us not into…

Looking for Jesus The disciples looked for Jesus and when they found Him, they said, “Everyone is looking for you.” Indeed, everyone was looking for Jesus because even after Jesus had cured many who were ill and drove out many demons, there were still many more who were sick with various diseases and possessed by demons. In this day and age, where and how should we look for Jesus? A number of the faithful have a tendency to be drawn…
