• To the point
• First Two Readings


The Word Encountered

John Kavanaugh, S. J.

Life is slow and subtle. Love takes time to show and grow. In life, little acts count. In fact, that is what a life is all about, a long parade of moments deceptively inconsequential.


Historical Cultural Context

John J. Pilch

The reason why parables were and are difficult to interpret is because they point out how things are similar but also different.


Thoughts from the
Early Church

Edith Barnecut, O.S.B., ed.

Peter Chrysologus

A mustard seed! Is that the sum of believers' hopes? Is that what the faithful are longing for?


Preparing for Sunday

Gillick, S. J.

All gifts have a hole, an emptiness embedded in them which are also invitations.
