The Transfiguration

02-25-2024Weekly ReflectionFr. Aruldoss

Dear People of God,

God morning to you all. I wish and pray that our mighty God may bless you and your family members with His forgiveness, peace, joy, good heath and prosperity in this graceful season of Lent. Today we celebrate the second Sunday of Lent. The running theme of today’s readings is the transfiguration of our Jesus. In the first reading, we see Abraham’s willingness to offer his beloved son, Isaac, as a sacrifice in an extraordinary test of faith. Abraham’s obedience, although seemingly extreme, demonstrates the transformative nature of faith.


Ask God for forgiveness during Lent

02-18-2024Weekly ReflectionFr. Aruldoss

Dear People of God.

Good morning to you all. Today is already first Sunday of Lent. The readings of this Sunday are inviting us to renew our covenant with God. Here I would like write a little about the season of Lent.

As we all know, the season of Lent has been begun already. Lent is a time of conversion and penance that the Catholic Church offers to believers to prepare for and live the Easter triduum — the mystery of the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus. During the 40 days (this year Feb. 14–March 28), Catholics can set goals to grow in holiness and help others do the same.

Dear people of God,

Good morning to you all! May the peace of God be with you!!

On this fifth Sunday in Ordinary time, the readings call us to reflect on Jesus’ power to heal us, both physically and spiritually. In the first reading, Job laments that he is experiencing so much misery and despair. Job's lament in the first reading highlights the profound struggle of human suffering and the search for meaning amidst life's trials. It resonates with anyone grappling with pain, loss, or hardship. Contrasting with human suffering, the Responsorial Psalm and the Gospel emphasize God's compassion and healing power.
