First Monday of Advent - Getting our house in order

Monday, November 30, 2015

One of the gifts of the 2010 Revised Translation of the Missal was that it made many of the scriptural references and quotations in the Mass much clearer. In the Gospel for the First Monday of Advent, we have one of the best examples of this: we cannot now fail to see the parallel between the centurion’s words to Jesus and those we say after the priest invites us to Communion: ‘Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof . . . just give the word and my servant will cured / but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.’ Read more

Gospel Reading of the Day Reflection

Wednesday, November 25, 2015

What is it that Jesus preaches that would turn family, friend and neighbour against his followers? Christians are being taken to civil and religious courts all because of following the name of Jesus, who preached truth, love, freedom, peace and justice. As we approach the end of the Church’s liturgical year, the warnings of Jesus in Luke 21 are as relevant today as they were in the earliest days of Christianity.  Read more

Questions for... Fr David Sanders OP

Saturday, November 21, 2015

As I settle into the comfy chair in the Student Master’s bedroom, with the buses rumbling outside along St Giles, it occurs to me that for the next half hour the roles will be reversed: I will be the one asking him about how he’s getting on in the Dominican life. He is the first to be interviewed in our new Godzdogz series on the life and work of the brethren today. Read more

Great Dominicans: Albertus Magnus

Tuesday, November 17, 2015

St Albert is said to have been one of the last people to have known everything that was known in his day. That might be an exaggeration, but it’s certain that his interests and publications spanned every discipline of his time: from a best-selling work on rocks (de mineralibus), through to geometry, astronomy, friendship, law, love, language, not to mention extensive commentaries on the scriptures, it’s certainly fair to say Albert was universally learned.  Read more
