Families need to be aware and prepare themselves to render the best care they can give to the elderly. The following three episodes are going to do just that, talking about the care for the caregivers. The speakers highlight some very real and important pastoral and medical situations and conditions that caregivers face, and what kind of support they need as they take care of those ageing.

WOE TO YOU?
IN THIS PODCAST: In the gospel passage today Jesus denounces the cities Corazon, Betsaida and Capernaum because of the hard heartedness of the people there despite the many wonders and miracles performed by Him. In the same way Jesus questions our way of life. Are we able to accept Jesus and change our lifestyle to live one like the Lord wants us to? He invites us not to be indifferent and hard hearted but to repent and return to the Lord.  This homily was preached on the passage from Mt 11:20-24 by Rev. Fr. Siluvai Muthu, CSsR, on 12 July 2022. Let us reflect and pray to the Lord

AN EXAMPLE OF CHRISTIAN VIRTUE 
IN THIS PODCAST: In the gospel passage today we are reminded that God comes first in our priorities and the rest follows. Our faith needs to be rooted in Jesus and not in the false sense of security and material possessions. God leaves us with hard choices between Him and our Families and wealth. He assures that everything will fall into place as long as we surrender to Him even if we have to face rejection and persecution on His account. This homily was preached on the passage from Mt 10:34-11:1 by Rev. Fr. Gerard Solomon, CSsR, on 11 July 2022. Let us reflect and pray to the Lord  
04:46 10/28/23
ALL KNOWING & ALL SEEING
IN THIS PODCAST: The passage for today is in continuation of Jesus sending out the apostles on their missions. Jesus chose unworthy people and gave them an awareness that they are priceless in the eyes of God. He says that they will encounter hardships and persecution on His account but assures them to fear not as He will be with them in their journeys. In this context, Fr. Gerard quotes St Francis de Sales saying ‘to fear God out of love and not love Him out of fear.’ This homily was preached on the passage from Mt 10:24-33 by Rev. Fr. Gerard Solomon, CSsR, on 09 July 2022. Let us reflect and pray to the Lord
