"A cloud came, overshadowing them, and out of the cloud a voice: 'This is My Son, My Beloved. Listen to Him.' " —Mark 9:7

"God is for us" (Rm 8:31). He "did not spare His own Son but handed Him over for the sake of us all" (Rm 8:32). After that, will He not "grant us all things besides?" (Rm 8:32) God couldn't love us more. He loves us unconditionally, ... More


LIVING LIFE'S COVENANT DIMENSION - One Bread, One Body, Feb 24, 2018
Deuteronomy 26:16-19 | Psalm 119:1-2, 4-5, 7-8 | Matthew 5:43-48

"The Lord is making this agreement with you: you are to be a people peculiarly His own, as He promised you; and provided you keep all His commandments..." —Deuteronomy 26:18

In the old covenant, God made us His people. Our responsibility in the covenant was "to walk in His ways and observe His statutes, commandments and decrees" (Dt 26:17). We were utterly incapable of the complete obedience called for in this ... More


REC ROOM - One Bread, One Body, Feb 23, 2018
St. Polycarp
Ezekiel 18:21-28 | Psalm 130:1-8 | Matthew 5:20-26

"Go first to be reconciled." —Matthew 5:24

In the Sermon on the Mount, the quintessence of the new covenant, Jesus expresses His divinity by superseding the old law in several ways. Jesus' first such statement is: "You have heard the commandment imposed on your forefathers, 'You shall ... More


"ROCK"-ING CHAIR - One Bread, One Body, Feb 22, 2018
Chair of St. Peter

"I for My part declare to you, you are 'Rock,' and on this rock I will build My Church." —Matthew 16:18

Jesus is the Carpenter (Mk 6:3). He probably built several chairs out of wood. Like any skilled carpenter, Jesus would have built His chairs to last. The chair would have a firm foundation to prevent toppling and give confidence to the one ... More


GREATER THAN JONAH - One Bread, One Body, Feb 21, 2018
St. Peter Damian
Jonah 3:1-10 | Psalm 51:3-4, 12-13, 18-19 | Luke 11:29-32

"You have a greater than Jonah here." —Luke 11:32

Jonah was a reluctant, begrudging prophet. He did not want to obey the Lord. Yet he didn't want to be in the belly of a whale either.

However, the wicked Ninevites did not repent with begrudging, complaining reluctance. Incredibly, ... More


THE SPIRIT TEACHES US THE "OUR FATHER" - One Bread, One Body, Feb 20, 2018

"Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You?" —Matthew 25:37

When Jesus comes in glory on Judgment Day, He will judge us on whether we fed Him by feeding the least of His and our brothers and sisters (Mt 25:35, 42). Jesus is so concerned with feeding us that, when Peter told Jesus that he loved Him, ... More
