SUNDAY REFLECTION : Preaching of John and Baptism of Jesus (February 24 , 2019)

Mark the Evangelist starts the gospel of Jesus Christ affirming from the very beginning that Jesus came as the Son of God. He proves the divinity of Jesus starting with the extraordinary experience and witnessing of John the Baptist. Isaiah and Malachi had prophesied on the coming of John as the messenger of the Lord to prepare the way for the Messiah. He prepared many people from Judea and Jerusalem to receive the Savior by renewing their lives. They confessed their sins and received baptism from John as sign of their spiritual renewal. John had the privilege to baptize Jesus when John experienced the divine intervention of the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove and the confirmation from God the Father.

Sunday Reflection: The Healing of a Centurion’s Servant (February 17,2019)

The centurion’s interaction with Jesus mediating for the healing of his servant gives us great lessons of Christianity. The Gentile military officer was a man of love in action, a model of faith in Jesus, and an icon of humility. Jesus praised him and set him as an example for people who were around Jesus at that time. While practicing our religion as Christians, let us also be loving, caring, believing, and humbling like the centurion.
