What Are We to Do? Scott Hahn Reflects on the Fourth Sunday of Easter

Posted by Dr. Scott Hahn on 05.09.14 |

Good Shepherd

Readings:
Acts 2:14, 36-41
Psalm 23:1-6
1 Peter 2:20-25
John 10:1-10

Easter’s empty tomb is a call to conversion.

By this tomb, we should know for certain that God has made Jesus both Lord and Messiah, as Peter preaches in today’s First Reading.

He is the “Lord,” the divine Son that David foresaw at God’s right hand (see Psalms 110:1,3; 132:10-11; Acts 2:34). And He is the Messiah that God had promised…  [Continue Reading]

Emmaus and Us: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Third Sunday of Easter

Posted by Dr. Scott Hahn on 05.02.14 |

Emmaus

Readings:
Acts 2:14,22-28
Psalm 16:1-2, 5, 7-11
1 Peter 1:17-21
Luke 24:13-35

We should put ourselves in the shoes of the disciples in today’s Gospel. Downcast and confused they’re making their way down the road, unable to understand all the things that have occurred.

They know what they’ve seen - a prophet mighty in word and deed. They know what they were hoping for - that He would be the redeemer…  [Continue Reading]

Star Light, Star Bright by Scott Hahn

Mary - Maria Fecioara

Pope Benedict and Pope Francis have called her the “Star of the New Evangelization.” And the Blessed Virgin Mary is a star — not in the Hollywood sense. But, like a bright light in the night sky, she shows us the way.

Mary is, without rival, the most influential woman in human history. She has no rival. Who has influenced culture, painting, sculpture, architecture, poetry, music as much as she has?…  [Continue Reading]

They Saw and Believed: Scott Hahn reflects on Easter Sunday

Resurrection 2



Readings:

Acts 10:34, 37-43

Psalm 118:1-2, 16-17, 22-23

Colossians 3:1-4

John 20:1-9

Jesus is nowhere visible. Yet today’s Gospel tells us that Peter and John “saw and believed.”



What did they see? Burial shrouds lying on the floor of an empty tomb. Maybe that convinced them that He hadn’t been carted off by grave robbers, who usually stole the expensive burial linens and left the corpses…  [Continue Reading]

Mercy’s Month by Scott Hahn

Posted by Dr. Scott Hahn on 04.09.14 |

Divine Mercy

I can think of no better month to serve as a summary of Christian life. Lent runs late this year, so it feels like God’s taking a little bit longer to work with me. The Prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah saw God as a patient potter, purposeful as he molds his creations.

Yet, O LORD, you are our Father;
we are the clay, and are our potter;
we are all the work of your hand. (Isaiah 64:8)

Lent is the time…  [Continue Reading]

At Lazarus’ Tomb: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Fifth Sunday of Lent

Posted by Dr. Scott Hahn on 04.04.14 |

Lazarus Tomb

Readings:
Ezekiel 37:12-14
Psalm 130:1-8
Romans 8:8-11
John 11:1-45

As we draw near to the end of Lent, today’s Gospel clearly has Jesus’ passion and death in view.

That’s why John gives us the detail about Lazarus’ sister, Mary - that she is the one who anointed the Lord for burial (see John 12:3,7). His disciples warn against returning to Judea; Thomas even predicts they will “die with Him” if they…  [Continue Reading]

Eyesight to the Blind: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Fourth Sunday of Lent

Posted by Dr. Scott Hahn on 03.28.14 |

Blind Man 2

Readings:
1 Samuel 16:1, 6-7, 10-13
Psalm 23:1-6
Ephesians 5:8-14
John 9:1-41

God’s ways of seeing are not our ways, we hear in today’s First Reading. Jesus illustrates this in the Gospel - as the blind man comes to see and the Pharisees are made blind.

The blind man stands for all humanity. “Born totally in sin” he is made a new creation by the saving power of Christ.

As God fashioned the first man…  [Continue Reading]
