Light of Truth – 52

This week on the Light of Truth Fr. Philip Mulryne O.P. joins Fr. Luuk O.P. to reflect on the second half of the first chapter of the Gospel according to St. John. This is where John the Baptist points out Jesus to the first discples. They follow Jesus, and when Jesus turns to them they ask where He stays. These disciples follow Jesus and stayed with Him, and this changed their lives for ever. The encounter with Jesus always changes our lives!

Light of Truth – 51

This week on the Light of Truth Fr. Luuk Jansen O.P. looks at some of the people who feature in the Bible around the time of the Birth of Jesus. Sometimes there might be a temptation to say that it was easy for them to believe in Jesus as all these events happened before their eyes. However, if we ponder some of the stories and realise the faith that was needed it becomes clear that it was not plain sailing then either! Reflection on these events helps us to appreciate and deepen our own faith in return.

The music played in the live program on Radio Maria were:

  • The Cross has the Final Word – Newsboys.
  • O’Lord – Lauren Diagle
  • Your Love Defends Me – Matt Maher

Light of Truth – 50

This week on the Light of Truth Fr. Luuk Jansen O.P. looks at some ways in relation to the following of Jesus. In Matthew 19:16 – 19:22 a young man asks Jesus what he should do in addition to holding the commandments, and Jesus tells him to sell everything and follow him. Is this a particular vocation, or is it a general call. Fr. Luuk looks at some of the different aspects.
