​OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN, OUR FATHER ON EARTH: A REFLECTION BY FR. MICHAEL BARROW, SJ

​OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN, OUR FATHER ON EARTH: A REFLECTION BY FR. MICHAEL BARROW, SJ
A puzzling expression Jesus once used "You must call no-one on earth your father since you have only one Father and he is in heaven." (Matt 22.6) We know from other parts of the gospel how much Jesus taught and maintained the importance of honouring father and mother.So obviously he is not asking us to cancel Fathers Day or not to acknowledge how m...

But after saying that Jesus added the second commandment, "You must lo...

Giving Back To Caesar: A Reflection On The Gospel Matthew 22. 15-21 By Fr. Michael Barrow, SJ
The two greatest commandments are loving God and our neighbour, but the one Jesus insists on most is love of our neighbour because it is through that that I grow in the love of God, "since a person who does not love the brother that he can see cannot love God, whom he has never seen." (1 John 4.20) It is by love and generosity towards other people ...

"Where Did God Touch Me Today?" A Reflection by Fr. Michael Barrow, SJ

​God is in every part of our lives, but I wonder how many of us are restricted to a religious God, in other words, finding God only in the churchy part of our lives. God is not more present in church than at a cricket match or in my home or at work. God is present in every part of my life; the difference is not in God's presence, but in my awarenes...
