Laborers of the Lord of the Harvest

God’s Anointed and Sent One is here.  And with him comes great harvest.  That is why there is need for not a few laborers. God hears those who pray and ask, “May there be plenty of grain in the land.  May it sway on the peaks of the mountains.”  But, of course, to...

Strong Resolve to Walk with Jesus

Jesus is strong in his resolve to go to Jerusalem to live his Paschal Mystery.  To be his disciple means to walk with him to the end. Jesus sets out for Jerusalem.  He has sent messengers ahead of him to prepare his way, as  John did.  On the way, the Teacher shows...

Bless, Break, Share, and Serve

Christ shares his blood with us as we bless with him the cup of thanksgiving.  And he shares his body as we break the bread. Nowadays, we voice out not so noble feelings; we rant.  We are more ready to curse than to bless, to tell others to their faces their faults,...

Pour out God’s Love into Hearts

Jesus loves us to the end, to giving his life for us.  To follow him means to give up our bodies and pour out our blood for others. Jesus does not speak expressly of the Most Holy Trinity.  He only shares with us and shows us his experience of God as a good and loving...

Gifts of Christ Who Has Gone up to Heaven

Jesus Christ goes up to heaven and gives gifts to men and women.  He wants them to grow up fully and be wholly human as he. We ask our Father in heaven many things.  And the good things we ask for are summed up in his gift of the Holy Spirit (Lk 11, 13).  Hence, this...

Wait for Jesus Christ to Come Back

Jesus, who came to the world from the Father, now leaves the world to go back to the Father.  True Christians cannot but wait for him to come back and take them with him. In Mt 28,16-20, Jesus gives to the eleven apostles the task to make disciples of all nations.  He...

Upset, Dismay, Annoy, Distress

Jesus is the peace between natives and foreigners, whites and blacks, men and women.  One, then, need not be upset by the other. Jesus says good-bye at length to his disciples.  For he wants them to keep their faith in him; he does not want trials to upset them. No,...

Distinctive Mark of Christ’s Disciples

Jesus is the proof that God loves us.  Sent by God, he teaches us to love.  He makes love the Christians’ distinctive mark and the means of salvation. Judas leaves so as to carry out fully the betrayal.  And this treasonous leave is a distinctive sign that Jesus’ hour...

Mind and Heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ

Jesus and the Father are one and of one mind and heart.  And to be a Christian means to have Christ’s mind and heart. Jesus walks about in the temple area on Solomon’s Porch or Colonnade.  It is a place many people go to, especially in winter.  For there, due to a...

Burden and Sorrow of Our Lord Jesus Christ

Jesus is God-with-us.  He stays with us all along the way that we travel.  He finds bearable the burden that we turn out to be. The disciples cannot haul in the net due to the huge number of fish caught in it.  But surely, it is a burden that makes the fishermen...
