Jul 23-28 Weekday Reflections


From Fr. Tony Kadavil's Reflections:

July 23-28: July 23 Monday (St. Bridget, Religious): Mt 12:38-42: 38
Then some of the scribes and Pharisees said to him, “Teacher, we wish to see a sign from you.” 39 But he answered them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign; but no sign shall be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. 40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the whale, so will the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.  41 The men of Nineveh will arise at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and behold, something greater than Jonah is here. 42 The queen of the South will arise at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the Wisdom of Solomon, and behold, something greater than Solomon is here.

16th Week Monday - Reflections


16th Week, Ordinary Time, Monday, 23-07-18
Micah 6:1-4, 6-8 / Matthew 12:38-42

Whenever we look at a religion, we look at its spiritual founder and what he taught. But more importantly than the teachings are the fruits of the religion.

What effects does that religion have on people?

Indian authorities have been cooperating in this case by arresting many people and shutting down call centers found involved. One of the main conspirators is Sagar “Shaggy” Thakkar, who was arrested by Mumbai police in April 2017. He was allegedly in touch with Hardik Patel, co-owner of one of the call centers and a key player who has been sentenced to over 15 years.
