Weeekly Bible Reflection
Sunday 22nd June, 2008
‘So have no fear of them; for nothing is covered up that will not be uncovered, and nothing secret that will not become known. What I say to you in the dark, tell in the light; and what you hear whispered, proclaim from the housetops. Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground unperceived by your Father. And even the hairs of your head are all counted. So do not be afraid; you are of more value than many sparrows.
‘Everyone therefore who acknowledges me before others, I also will acknowledge before my Father in heaven; but whoever denies me before others, I also will deny before my Father in heaven.
Reflection ( source: http://churchresources.info/pray/gospel.php)
How sharp the razor’s edge when it pierces the skin, yet how much sharper the Word of the Lord when we allow it to pierce our heart.
To skim over the text of today’s gospel as mere words escapes the challenge. Is it possible that we have disowned you, Jesus, in the presence of others?

GUELPH, Ont. - Including the land in a celebration of the Eucharist isn’t a difficult concept. Humans are made of this stuff.
