Daily Gospel Commentary
The text of the Gospel and a brief commentary to help us pray about Jesus's life and words. This link is updated daily. "When you open the Holy Gospel, think that what is written there — the words and deeds of Christ — is something that you should not only know, but live. Everything, every point that is told there, has been gathered, detail by detail, for you to make it come alive in the individual circumstances of your life... Take up the Gospel every day, then, and read it and live it as a definite rule. This is what the saints have done" (The Forge, no. 754).
