Fire of Love: Scott Hahn reflects on the 3rd Sunday of Easter

Posted by Dr. Scott Hahn on 04.12.13 |

Jesus Peter Apostles

Acts 5:27-32,40-41
Psalm 30:2,4-6,11-13
Revelation 5:11-14
John 21:1-19

There are two places in Scripture where the curious detail of a “charcoal fire” is mentioned.

One is in today’s Gospel, where the Apostles return from fishing to find bread and fish warming on the fire.

The other is in the scene in the High Priest’s courtyard on Holy Thursday, where Peter and some guards and slaves warm themselves…  [Continue Reading]

All Things New

St. Cyril of Jerusalem

“He who sat upon the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new” (Revelation 21:5).

And so He has!

We enter Easter season with new life won for us through the sacraments. The sacraments are as old as the Gospel, yet they are, like the Gospel, ever new.

We enter the season with a new pope. We celebrate now because we have witnessed, with our own eyes, how the Holy Spirit always renews the Church in…  [Continue Reading]

Breath of New Life: Scott Hahn Reflects on Divine Mercy Sunday

Posted by Dr. Scott Hahn on 04.05.13 |

Divine Mercy

Acts 5:12-16
Psalm 118:2-4,13-15, 22-24
Revelation 1:9-13,17-19
John 20:19-31

The prophet Daniel in a vision saw “One like the Son of Man” receive everlasting kingship (see Daniel 7:9-14). John is taken to heaven in today’s Second Reading where He sees Daniel’s prophecy fulfilled in Jesus, who appears as “One like a Son of Man.”

Jesus is clad in the robe of a High Priest (see Exodus 28:4; Wisdom…  [Continue Reading]

They Saw and Believed: Scott Hahn Reflects on Easter Sunday

Jesus Resurrection II

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 behind.

But notice…  [Continue Reading]

Isaiah 50:4-7
Psalm 22:8-9, 17-20, 23-24
Philippians 2:6-11
Luke 22:14-23:56

What is written about Me is coming to fulfillment,” Jesus says in today’s Gospel (see Luke 22:37).

Indeed, we have reached the climax of the liturgical year, the highest peak of salvation history, when all that has been anticipated and promised is to be fulfilled.

By the close of today’s long Gospel, the work of our redemption…  [Continue Reading]

Something New: Scott Hahn Reflects on the 5th Sunday of Lent

Posted by Dr. Scott Hahn on 03.15.13 |


Isaiah 43:16-21
Psalms 126:1-6
Philippians 3:8-14
John 8:1-11

The Liturgy this Lent has shown us the God of the Exodus. He is a mighty and gracious God, Who out of faithfulness to His covenant has done “great things” for His people, as today’s Psalm puts it.
But the “things of long ago,” Isaiah tells us in today’s First Reading, are nothing compared to the “something new” that He will do in the…  [Continue Reading]

Found Alive Again: Scott Hahn Reflects on the 4th Sunday of Lent

Prodigal Son close up

Joshua 5:9-12
Psalms 34:2-7
2 Corinthians 5:17-21
Luke 15:1-3, 11-32

In today’s First Reading, God forgives “the reproach” of the generations who grumbled against Him after the Exodus. On the threshold of the promised land, Israel can with a clean heart celebrate the Passover, the feast of God’s first-born son (see Joshua 5:6-7; Exodus 4:22; 12:12-13).

Reconciliation is also at the heart of the…  [Continue Reading]
