TURNING AROUND What is metanoia? It means to turn around, which is what repentance is all about. It is to turn around to receive the Good News. Repentance is not a negative term. In fact, it is a positive term because it invites a person to turn away from sin and turn towards the new reality of joy, freedom and peace. How can we help people to turn around?

CLEARING THE DOUBTS ABOUT THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS Christian Faith stands or falls with faith in the resurrection of Jesus. If Jesus were not raised, then the death of Jesus would have no meaning because it is not salvific. Without the resurrection, there is no way to verify the claims of Jesus about His Father, the Kingdom of God and His identity as the Son of God. That is why, right from the onset of Christianity, there were those who felt the need to suppress the truth about His resurrection, or to ridicule the fact of His resurrection. What proofs do we have that Jesus is truly risen? What does it mean for Jesus and for us?

Best Practices for Using the Daily Scripture Reflections
  • Encounter God through the spirit of prayer and the scripture by reflecting and praying the Word of God daily. The purpose is to bring you to prayer and to a deeper union with the Lord on the level of the heart.
  • Daily reflections when archived will lead many to accumulate all the reflections of the week and pray in one sitting. This will compromise your capacity to enter deeply into the Word of God, as the tendency is to read for knowledge rather than a prayerful reading of the Word for the purpose of developing a personal and affective relationship with the Lord.
  • It is more important to pray deeply, not read widely. The current reflections of the day would be more than sufficient for anyone who wants to pray deeply and be led into an intimacy with the Lord.

Note: You may share this reflection with someone. However, please note that reflections are not archived online, nor will they be available via email request.
