  • Reflecting On The Word Of God Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Oct 8, 2011

    To respond to Christ's command, we must take time to reflect on the Word of God and the words of God, so that we can spread that word to a world in desperate need.

    Monday of 28th Week in Course 10 October 2011 Verbum Domini The gospel of God was promised long ago through the prophets of God in the holy scriptures. Some, like Jonah, Elijah and Michaeh ben Imlah, were verbal prophets whose words and deeds were later interpreted and written down by their more

  • The Word Of God--Constant Reminder Of Our Need To Repent Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Oct 22, 2011

    This homily is largely identical to the previous week's, which I did not get to deliver. The relationship between the spiritual gifts and the deposit of faith in Scripture

    Monday of 30th Week in Course St. Anthony Mary Claret Verbum Domini The early Church, built on the immediate remembrance of Pentecost, was “charismatic” in the best sense. That is, the spiritual gifts, interior and exterior, characterized the relationships between the Christian, more

  • Sayings Of The Word Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Sep 22, 2012

    We need to understand the reason why some sayings of Jesus are put together as they are, sometimes logically, sometimes phonetically.

    Monday of 25th Week in Course Verbum Domini “Jesus is the Wisdom of God incarnate, he is his eternal Word who became a mortal man.” These words of our Holy Father end the prologue to his letter, Verbum Domini, and give depth to our readings today. The logia, or sayings of Jesus, more

  • Defender Of Religious Liberty Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Sep 15, 2012

    St Robert Bellarmine would be an excellent candidate for the patron of the Church in defense of religious liberty, as we face a determined political system who would destroy us.

    17 September 2012 St. Robert Bellarmine Verbum Domini Today’s saint is one who is not quoted in Verbum Domini by our Holy Father. Perhaps the reason is that Robert Bellarmine, who lived in the sixteenth and seventeenth century, was a controversial theologian in his time. We might say more

  • The Abbreviated Word Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Nov 26, 2011
    based on 3 ratings

    It is to our benefit that God condescended to become human. In the words of the Church Fathers, he "abbreviated" Himself.

    Monday of the First Week of Advent 2011 Verbum Domini What a providential, or shrewd, juxtaposition we have this year on this first Monday of Advent. The word of God today brings together the expectation of Advent, our reflections on Verbum Domini, and the reintroduction of truly Scriptural more

  • The Word Of God, Secular Society And The Natural Law Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Nov 12, 2011
    based on 1 rating

    By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, and the natural moral law.

    Monday of 33rd Week in Course Verbum Domini “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” This is one of what the Egyptian hermits used to call “javelin prayers” that the Church has held dear from the beginning. The story we hear in today’s Gospel, which originated in more

  • The Meanings Of The Word Of God Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Nov 5, 2011
    based on 1 rating

    The Wisdom of God is another word for the Word of God, which itself has many meanings, primarily the Logos, the Second person of the Trinity

    Monday of 32nd Week in Course Verbum Domini God’s word to us today is strong and admonitory. Seek wisdom–which means seek the will of God–and follow after it. Don’t think you can hide from God. The spirit of God is everywhere, and knows everything we think or say. more

  • The Word Of God, Politics, And Protection For Preborn Children Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Jan 21, 2012

    The Word of God teaches us the value of every human life, and our responsibility to pray and work politically to share the Gospel of Life.

    Monday of 3rd Week in Ordinary Time Day of Prayer for Legal Protection for the Preborn Verbum Domini Today is the Church’s day of prayer for legal protection for those not yet born. As a human being conceived in what was certainly a great family scandal, whose mother was sent nearly two more

  • Don't Chase Private Revelations Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Jan 7, 2012

    Jesus Christ is the definitive revelation of God to humanity. Any private revelations that may come after Him must point to Him and do not have the authority of public revelation.

    January 9, 2012 The Baptism of the Lord Verbum Domini Today’s feast, which usually occurs on a Sunday, commemorates one of the three great Epiphanies of Jesus. Jesus’s birth was obscure, his cradle a feed-box, with cows and sheep and a few shepherds to announce Him. The great more

  • The Word Was Made Flesh Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Mar 24, 2012

    What do the first two principles of biblical interpretation teach us about the Annunciation story?

    Solemnity of the Annunciation 2012 Verbum Domini When we pray together our profession of faith in a moment, the Missal instructs us to kneel for a moment (if we can) when we say that of the Son, “and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man.” John’s more

  • Bring Us Together By Thy Word Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Aug 25, 2012

    The existence of the Word of God makes it necessary to have a living and authoritative interpretator "of last resort," in the Church.

    Monday of 21st Week in Course St. Monica/St. Augustine Verbum Domini St. Monica could easily be called the patron saint of frustrated prayer. A Catholic herself, she found herself married to a pagan, with a son who, unbaptized as a child, turned into a kind of semi-pagan hellion during his more

  • How To Hear A Parable Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Jul 28, 2012

    The parables of Jeremiah and Jesus are in a special form that we need to understand if we are to get all the benefits they can provide.

    Monday of 17th Week in Course 2012 St. Peter Chrysologus Verbum Domini As we continue our reflections on the letter of Pope Benedict, Verbum Domini, we have a happy intersection of the celebration of St. Peter Chrysologus and these two parabolic readings. No, I’m not teaching a more

  • Transfigured Through Obedience And Suffering Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Aug 4, 2012

    The transfiguration event offers us an opportunity to learn how we might achieve union with God in the pattern of Jesus on Tabor.

    Monday of 18th Week in Course 2012 Transfiguration Verbum Domini “The word of God has bestowed upon us the divine life which transfigures the face of the earth, making all things new (cf. Rev 21:5).” These words of Pope Benedict’s letter, Verbum Domini, should frame our more

  • Reflecting On The Dark Passages Of Scripture Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on May 12, 2012

    As in the story of Judas, there are dark passages in the Bible, but they can help us if we use an interpretation which enables their meaning to emerge in the light of the mystery of Christ.

    Feast of St. Matthias 14 May 2012 Verbum Domini Today’s feast gives us an opportunity to reflect on one of the darkest moments in our salvation history. The crucifixion of Jesus was set up by a traitor, Judas “the Iscariot.” It also helps us to consider what the Holy Father more

  • Both Faith And Reason Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Apr 21, 2012

    Both our faith and our reason must inform our study and preaching of Scripture.

    Monday of the 3rd Week of Easter Verbum Domini The breaking in of the Word of God into the closed-in Jewish culture of the first century was heavily resisted by the Jews. In fact, by one estimate, only a small minority of Palestinian Jews turned to Jesus as the Messiah and became members of more
