THE THREE R’S

“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all!” —2 Corinthians 13:13 When God revealed to Moses that His name was “Lord” and that He was “a merciful and gracious God, slow to anger and rich in kindness and fidelity” (Ex 34:6), “Moses at once bowed down to the ground in worship” (Ex 34:8). Moses immediately knew that when God gives greater revelation of Who He is, this is an event of great significance. There are 3 R’s in life: revelation, relationship, and responsibility. When the...

MIGHTY MITE

“He called His disciples over and told them: ‘I want you to observe that this poor widow contributed more than all the others who donated to the treasury.’ ” —Mark 12:43 Jesus accused the scribes of devouring the savings of widows and making a show of religion (Mk 12:40). Then He commended a widow for putting “all that she had to live on” into the collection box (Mk 12:44). Why did Jesus commend a widow for helping finance the scribes’ misuse of religion to advance themselves? In this Scripture passage, Jesus does not seem to focus on how the Temple...

THE WORD AT WORK WITHIN YOU (1 THES 2:13)

“My heart stands in awe of Your word.” —Psalm 119:161 Presentation Ministries publishes One Bread, One Body for the purpose of opening up the Church’s daily Eucharistic Scripture readings to as many people as possible.

The real power in any of these teachings comes...

A FAITHFUL GOD

“If we are unfaithful He will still remain faithful, for He cannot deny Himself.” –2 Timothy 2:13 Which of us can honestly claim that we have been perfectly faithful to all the Lord’s commands? We all fall short; we are all sinners in some way (see Rm 3:23). The Good News is that God remains faithful to us, despite our sins and failings. Faithfulness is at the core of God’s very self. God loves us unconditionally, even if we have completely turned our back on Him. “God is Love” (1 Jn 4:8, 16). Even should a mother forget her child...

LIGHT MY FIRE

“I remind you to stir into flame the gift of God…” –2 Timothy 1:6 In today’s Gospel passage, Jesus speaks of flame when He references the burning bush (Mk 12:26). Moses saw an angel of the Lord appear to him “in fire flaming out of a bush” (Ex 3:2). That experience stirred into flame a blazing fire for God in Moses’ heart. In our Baptism and Confirmation, we have been given gifts of the Spirit (Rm 12:6; Eph 4:8). Hundreds of millions of people on this earth have received incredible gifts from the Holy Spirit. Why then is the world...
