The Word on Fire

The Word On Fire – Fr. Robert Barron’s internet site offers many interesting insights into all things Catholic. Fr. Barron has a full library of homilies that he has prepared and we will be featuring a link here to his 15 minute reflections on this week’s readings.

Fr. Scott Lewis

Fr. Scott Lewis is an associate professor of New Testament at Regis College in Toronto.  Each week Fr. Lewis writes a short reflection on the upcoming readings in the Catholic Register.

This Sunday: “Even in the first flush of enthusiasm the early Christian community had to struggle with competitiveness and disagreement.

Fr. Greg Friedman

Sunday Soundbites is a weekly, 90-second radio homily based on the Sunday readings, written and read by Fr. Greg Friedman, O.F.M. Sunday Soundbites is also heard on Catholic radio stations around the country.

This Sunday: “Do you ever long with nostalgia for the “good old days”?  Hello, I’m Franciscan Father Greg Friedman with the “Sunday Soundbite” for the Fifth Sunday of Easter.

I wonder if the early Christians, after the excitement of the first Pentecost had worn off,  longed for their own “good old days.” As they found themselves “in for the long haul,” trying to set up structures and institutions for the growing community, did they wish they were back when it was just Jesus and a little band of disciples?..”
