23-30 August: Peter Edmonds SJ introduces us to the early Christians to whom Paul was writing in the letter from which our first readings are taken.
26 January is the Feast of Ss Timothy and Titus, and our second reading is taken from the beginning of either Paul's Letter to Titus or Second Letter to Timothy.
The language of the second reading, which we also hear on Good Friday, puts us in mind of the Gethsemane scene in the gospels. It offers us a blunt reminder of the true humanity of Jesus.
The gospel readings for five of the Sundays during Lent in Year C come from Luke’s Gospel. Peter Edmonds SJ suggests that these readings, when taken together, form a short story of their own.
Weds 4 & Sat 7 Aug: What do we learn about 'faith' from Matthew's different uses of the word in our gospel readings about the Canaanite woman and the epileptic boy?
Peter has an experience of God in the great catch of fish, as we hear on 3 September; he objects, for he is a sinful man; but the Lord reassures him, promising that he will be a fisher of people.
