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...

'Proclaim the Good News. .. I shall be with you...' It is Jesus who has said this... and he has said it to you. (The Way, 904)
Et regni ejus non erit finis. His kingdom will have no end. Doesn't it fill you with joy to work …
