    The twenty-fourth Sunday

    Twenty-fourth Sunday First Reading: traditionally we understand these words to apply to Jesus and His passion.  But we can also take them as applying to individual Christian disciples who suffer and to suffering Christian communities (such as those suffering severe persecution in many parts of the Middle East today; visit www.acnuk.org for the latest news)….

    The Twenty-third Sunday

    Twenty-third Sunday    First Reading: Isaiah portrays the glorious fulfilment of God’s saving purpose at the end of time.  This end-time – we believe – begins with Jesus (see the Gospel reading).

    The Twelfth Sunday

    Twelfth Sunday First Reading: this is an extract (from chapter 38 of Job, not chapter 3 as it says in the Lectionary) from God’s explanation to Job for his suffering.  In describing his role in creating the waters, God uses the words of parental discipline: he is like a father who sets boundaries for his…
