HOW MUCH DO YOU SPEND ON CLOTHES?

3/5/2022
IN THIS PODCAST: Are we living by the standards of God or the standards of the world? In this podcast, Fr. Charles Vijay helps us to reflect on this question by reflecting on the contrast between our dress code and the ascetical attire of John the Baptist. He emphasizes that by our baptism, we have put on the garments of Christ, to live by God’s standards and not the standards of the world.

HUMILITY TO PROCLAIM THE GOSPEL

3/5/2022
IN THIS PODCAST: During the Season of Advent 2021, Fr.

NO HUMAN AUTHORITY IS ABSOLUTE

2/26/2022
IN THIS PODCAST: Today, Fr Sandeep reflects on the gospel from Mt 21:23-27. He explains that all forms of earthly leadership and authority are gifts given by God to human beings. Thus, no human authority is absolute. Thinking it so leads to all forms of abuse of authority. All of us who hold positions of authority, in the Church or in society, are accountable to God. This calls for exercising our roles with responsibility and love for people entrusted to us. This homily was preached by...

ADVENT: AN INCONVENIENT GOSPEL

2/26/2022

FAITH AND UNBELIEF

2/19/2022
IN THIS PODCAST: Contrasting attitudes are seen in the Gospel today. On one hand, we have the friends of the paralytic whose faith helped to heal him; and on the other, we have the Pharisees whose unbelief kept them trapped within hard-heartedness. In this podcast, Fr Geo contrasts Faith and unbelief and draws an important conclusion for our relationships with others too. This homily was preached on the gospel from Lk 5:17-26 by Rev. Fr.

UNSHAKEABLE FAITH

2/19/2022
IN THIS PODCAST: In today's gospel, which is taken from Mt 7:21,24-27 we asked to choose whether to be wise or to be foolish; whether to build our faith on rock or on sand. In this reflection, Fr.

INTRODUCING CHRIST

2/12/2022
