Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture
readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith
Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the
Sunday parish bulletins people take home.
From today’s Gospel reading:
Some Greeks who had come to worship at the
Came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in
And asked him, "Sir, we would like to see
Jesus and his disciples hadn’t preached to these
Greeks. They didn’t proselytize them, they came
of their own free will. What was the attraction?
They and we are attracted by the One who, in his
hour, is a completely faithful servant to God;
who shows total generosity, willing to give up
everything for us, without holding back anything
So, we ask ourselves:
How have we benefited from the sacrifices
others have made on our behalf?
What sacrifices are we being asked to make
for the wellbeing of others?
How have we experienced the fruits of these
sacrifices in our own lives?
