What if I told you the Mass is Scriptural?

What if I told you the Mass is Scriptural?
To answer this question we must first look at the Old Covenant (Old Testament) as a foreshadowing of what was fulfilled in the New Covenant (New Testament) in Jesus.Our first glimpse of a priest is found when Abraham met Melchizedek, the King of Salem (Jerusalem) who was a priest of God of the highest heaven, who brought him bread and wine. (Gen. 1...

2nd SUNDAY OF LENT YEAR B - TRANSFIGURED
The disciples were in a turmoil! Their leader, Simon Peter, had just professed his belief that Jesus was the Christ, the Son of the Living God. To their horror Jesus began to tell them that He would be put to death. At the time, it meant nothing to them that He also added that after three days He would rise from the dead.Simon Peter, out of sheer l...

Chosen By Christ: A Reflection On The Gospel For 3rd Sunday In Ordinary Time (Cycle B), By Fr. Michael Barrow, SJ

Chosen By Christ: A Reflection On The Gospel For 3rd Sunday In Ordinary Time (Cycle B), By Fr. Michael Barrow, SJ
​CHOSEN BY CHRISTI don't think Jesus would have taken to Twitter, where the aim seems to be to get as many "likes" as you can. Jesus made it clear to his disciples, "You did not choose me – I chose you." That explains why people found that, unlike others, Jesus spoke with authority. The rabbis and other religious leaders did not choose their discip...

COME AND SEE: A Reflection By Fr. Michael Barrow

COME AND SEE: A Reflection By Fr. Michael Barrow
​To say that you are called can have two quite different meanings. If someone says "What are you going to call the baby?" obviously, they mean what name you are going to give the child, but if they say, "Quick, call the children", the calling then is asking them to come. When I say that Christ is calling me, it has both meanings; he calls me person...

Epiphany! Revelation! Celebration!: A Reflection By Fr. Peter Clarke, OP

Epiphany! Revelation! Celebration!: A Reflection                          
By Fr. Peter Clarke, OP
​Coming! Coming! Coming!......Come!.....Gone! This describes the huge, even extravagant, build-up to Christmas, it's brief but joyful celebration, and then it's all over. This closure is eloquently stated by the return to school at the end of the vacation. To some it may seem that the Church wraps up Christmas neatly by celebrating the So...

The Coming Of The Magi:A Reflection On The Epiphany Of The Lord By Fr. Michael Barrow, SJ

The Coming Of The Magi:A Reflection On The Epiphany Of      
The Lord By Fr. Michael Barrow, SJ
THE COMING OF THE MAGIWhat a strange story St Matthew tells us in his gospel: Magi (magicians or wise men?) following a star. How on earth do you follow a star? And how can a star stop over a particular house? If a star or meteor stopped right over Barbados, everyone in the island would say "it was just above my house". St Luke's account of Bethleh...

The Holy Family: A Reflection By Fr. Michael Barrow, SJ

The Holy Family: A Reflection By Fr. Michael Barrow, SJ
​The trouble with pictures of the Holy Family is that they always look so holy. Even when they had the terrible experience of rushing off to Egypt as refugees, most illustrations give the impression that they're going off on holiday with Mary sitting side-saddle, sedately holding the baby.This first Sunday after Christmas, is celebrated as the feas...

Jesus Or Emmanuel? What's In A Name: A Reflection                
By Fr. Michael Barrow, SJ
​"And his name shall be called Emmanuel."But it wasn't! He was called Jesus. In his gospel​ St Matthew quotes the prophecy of Isaiah about the name Emmanuel within a few lines of saying that he would be called Jesus. Both names are very important. In the Bible it is the meaning of a name that is usually very significant. The name Emmanuel (sometime...
