I realized that I was making a mistake in my Advent-ing.
The Church is reminding us that there is much more to Advent than just anticipating the birthday of Jesus.
We live in a "time between" the comings of Jesus, who, Scripture tells us, could come at any moment.
Sunday's Gospel is an invitation to practice what we preach.
Not only did he ace the Pharisees' test, he started his own "School of Love."
Jesus’ interlocutors were not asking a sincere question, but his answer aids us who are sincerely discerning today.
It's true that everyone is welcome in Jesus' house. But just showing up won't cut it.
This Sunday's Gospel has some harsh words for Church leaders, but what about me?
Obedience is an unpopular word in our contemporary culture, but it is one of the non-negotiables of Christian life.
Life often seems unfair to us, but in the economy of God's justice, the sheet is always balanced.
