Biblical Reflections by Fr. Vincent Stegman, CSSP

15th Sunday of Ordinary Time – July 10

The kingdom of God does not consist of obeying written laws. It involves personal inner converson of minds and hearts. The external evidence will be visible.

16th Sunday of Ordinary Time – July 17

Abraham in the desert. Mary in Bethany. I in my home setting. Am I living out the reception of God into my life?


17th Sunday of Ordinary Time – July 24

Only twenty innocent people. Only ten innocent people. God’s love will save them all. God’s love is without boundaries. Jew, Gentile, gay or straight: all receive God’s love and mercy. No exceptions.


18th Sunday of Ordinary Time – July 31

All is vanity.  All we have learned; all we have earned. All are worthless if we do not have faith and express that faith in love. These are our treasures, without vanity. Faith expressed in love to every person we meet or live with.
