About

These reflections are a labour of love by Jessie Rogers, a biblical scholar originally from South Africa and now living in Ireland. I believe that Scripture can be engaged with in a live-giving and transformative way, and hope that I can share some of that here. In these reflections, I try to listen to ALL the readings, not just the Gospel. I’m working with the hunch that there is real wisdom in the way the readings are anthologised.

Each week I post the reflection on the readings for the following Sunday. The readings can be found online at http://www.usccb.org/bible/

    Great to see you take this on, Jessie. It is a big task to produce these reflections EVERY week, but I know from my years of sermon prep that a resource that offers an integrated perspective on all the readings is rare and invaluable! I will be a regular visitor.

    In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. John 1:1- 5. I am a christian with a catholic background and its awesome to see that that the Lord Jesus Christ talks to everyone no matter religion, language, race,,, His Word was inspired by the Holy Spirit and and it was made for us to live it. I am going to recommended your reflections to my catholic friends. I believe the Lord will continue using you and more to open eyes and bring revelation to others. May the Lord Jesus Christ continue giving you revelation.
    Blessings
