He concludes: “In your minds you must be the same as Christ Jesus. ... This second son represents most of us who pay lip service to God: “These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me” (Mt 15:18).

This book is a very brief reflection on the readings of Sundays and solemnities of the churches' liturgical calendar, year A. In order not to make this just "a mere weekly homily", but a full book for all time, the thematical approach has been employed for each homily. However, these themes are not exhaustive. Rather, they are simply meant to help us have an idea of what could be the central message of each celebration. Brief stories and other biblical passages, quotes, popular sayings, and even personal life experiences have been employed in order to make the message clearer and more comprehensible to all. Above all, I have tried to keep it short and simple. However, great care has been taken in doing this by keeping in mind the rules of good biblical interpretation, without down playing the meaning and message of the individual readings. Hence, this book follows both the catechetical and exegetical approach.
