Chaplain's Message

Mark 3: 20-35

Jesus explains that the kingdom of God or happiness is like a house

and cannot be built on evil or what is divided & opposed to God.
 

Dear Friends,

In the first reading today’s Mass from the Book of Genesis, we have a fascinating story of Adam and Eve trying to excuse themselves of their sin of eating the forbidden fruit because they were tempted by the serpent. Adam blames Eve (“Not my fault!”) and Eve blames the serpent (“Not my fault!”). The snake or serpent is the symbol of the evil spirit opposed to God and true happiness, and the fruit of the sin leads to unhappiness and eventually death.

Jesus explains in the Gospel that the kingdom of God or happiness is like a house and cannot be built on evil or what is divided & opposed to God. Only when they stop blaming others and admit their sin and say “sorry!” could our first parents and their children, the whole human community, begin to enter this new house of the Kingdom of God that Jesus came to build with us and for us.

This is our last bulletin until September. Wishing you all blessings of Summer fruitfulness, rest and relaxation
