First Sunday of Lent: Truly classic, ever new

Scripture for Life: Noah saw creation receive a fresh start and a promise. Eons later, Jesus proclaimed that something utterly new was happening, something that was about to change everything.


Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time: Among the first to witness

Scripture for Life: If ever Jesus had wanted to demonstrate that popularity was not his goal, touching a leper did the trick. We hear this story and remember unusual saints like Francis of Assisi and Mother Teresa who performed similar actions in their day.


Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time: Faith transformed in crisis

Scripture for Life: In today's readings, Job and Peter's mother-in-law — we'll call her Penny — offer us vital perspectives for dealing with the crises of our time. 


Third Sunday in Ordinary Time: Mind-blowing metanoia

Scripture for Life: Metanoia springs from a vision of how God's future is breaking into the present. It is a faith-filled certainty that communion with God and all of creation is the ultimate storyline and meaning of history.
