DG BookGospel: Mt 1:16, 18–21, 24a (or Lk 2:41–51a)
Jacob was the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary, and from her came Jesus who is called the Christ—the Messiah.
This is how Jesus Christ was born: Mary his mother had been given to Joseph in marriage, but before they lived together,
she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit. Then Joseph, her husband, made plans to divorce her in all secrecy. He
was an upright man, and in no way did he want to disgrace her. While he was pondering over this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a
dream and said, “Joseph, descendant of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife. She has conceived by the Holy Spirit,
and now she will bear a son. You shall call him ‘Jesus’ for he will save his people from their sins.” When Joseph awoke up, he did what the
angel of the Lord had told him to do, and he took his wife to his home.

 

Reflection:

The role of Joseph in the plan of salvation is very important. It was
prophesied that the Messiah would be from the stock of David. Mary
belongs to the clan of Levites. Hence she could not provide the Davidic
lineage to Jesus. Joseph comes from the House of David. That is why he
returned to Bethlehem, the town of David, because he belonged to the house
and line of David during the census ordered by Quirinius, the governor
of Syria. The plan of God would have been jeopardized had he not
consented to be the foster father of the Lord when He became Man. Joseph is a
man of few words. Yet he has done much for the plan of God to succeed. May we
be like him who silently work for the kingdom to be realized here on earth soon.

DG BookGospel: Jn 5:31-47
If I bore witness to myself, my testimony would be worthless. But Another One is bearing witness to me, and I know
that his testimony is true when he bears witness to me. John also bore witness to the truth when you sent messengers to him, but
I do not seek such human testimony; I recall this for you, so that you may be saved. (...) You search in the Scriptures, thinking

DG BookGospel: Jn 5:17-30*
Jesus replied, “My Father goes on working and so do I.” And the Jews tried all the harder to kill him, for Jesus not only
broke the Sabbath observance, but also made himself equal with God, calling God his own Father.
Jesus said to them, “Truly, I assure you, the Son cannot do anything by himself, but only what he sees the Father do. And whatever

DG BookGospel: Jn 5:1-16*
After this, there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. Now, by the Sheep Gate in Jerusalem, there is a pool (called Bethzatha
in Hebrew) surrounded by five galleries. In these galleries lay a multitude of sick people: blind, lame and paralyzed. (…) There was a man who had
been sick for thirty-eight years. Jesus saw him, and because he knew how long this man had been lying there, he said to him, “Do you want to be
healed?” And the sick man answered, “Sir, I have no one to put me into the pool when the water is disturbed; so while I am still on my way, another

DG BookGospel: Jn 4:43–54
When the two days were over, Jesus left for Galilee. Jesus himself said that no prophet is recognized in his own country. Yet the
Galileans welcomed him when he arrived, because of all the things which he had done in Jerusalem during the Festival, and which
they had seen. For they, too, had gone to the feast. Jesus went back to Cana of Galilee, where he had changed the water into wine. At

DG BookGospel: John 3:14-21
As Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, so that whoever believes in him may have eternal life. Yes, God so loved
the world that he gave his only Son that whoever believes in him may not be lost, but may have eternal life. God did not send the Son into the world to condemn
the world; instead, through him the world is to be saved. Whoever believes in him will not be condemned. He who does not believe is already condemned, because

DG BookGospel: Lk 18:9-14
Jesus told another parable to some people, fully convinced of their own righteousness, who looked down on
others: “Two men went up to the temple to pray; one was a Pharisee, and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood by
himself, and said, ‘I thank you, God, that I am not like other people, grasping, crooked, adulterous, or even like this tax

DG BookGospel: Mk 12:28-34
A teacher of the Law had been listening
to this discussion and admired how Jesus
answered them. So he came up and asked
him, “Which commandment is the first of all?”
Jesus answered, “The first is: Hear, Israel! The
Lord, our God, is One Lord; and you shall love
the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with
all your soul, with all your mind and with all
your strength. And after this comes a second
commandment: You shall love your neighbor
as yourself. There is no commandment
greater than these two.”
The teacher of the Law said to him, “Well
spoken, Master; you are right when you say
that he is one, and there is no other besides
him. To love him with all our heart, with all
our understanding and with all our strength,
and to love our neighbor as ourselves is
more important than any burnt offering or
sacrifice.”
Jesus approved this answer and said, “You
are not far from the kingdom of God.” And
after that, no one dared to ask him any more
questions.

 

Reflection:

There is no question that the commandment to worship and honor God is
the foremost command of all. The uniqueness of Jesus’ answer to the question of the
teacher of the Law is that, He linked worship of God to love of God. It is not borne
out of fear. It is powered by the person’s love to his or her creator who loves him
or her in return. Love begets love. But this is not a private and exclusive love between
creator and creature. This love must radiate to the love of neighbor on the
part of the creature. But God loves not only us but our fellow human beings
as well. If we love God, we love those whom God loves. So neighbor is not spatial
neighbors but the whole of humanity that is loved by God.

DG BookGospel: Lk 11:14-23
One day Jesus was driving out a demon, which was mute. When the demon had been driven out, the mute person could
speak, and the people were amazed. Yet some of them said, “He drives out demons by the power of Beelzebul, the chief of the
demons.” Others wanted to put him to the test, by asking him for a heavenly sign. But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to

DG BookGospel: Mt 5:17-19
Do not think that I have come to annul the Law and the Prophets. I have not come to annul them but to fulfill them. I tell you
this: as long as heaven and earth last, not the smallest letter or dot in the Law will change until all is fulfilled.
So then, whoever breaks the least important of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, will be the
