Commentary on the Gospel of



The church remembers Saint Anthony Mary Claret, a great missionary who founded the Claretian Congregation (CMF). All throughout his ministry, he was guided by what he considered to be “timely, urgent and effective.” Faced with the poor situation of the crippled woman who was bent over for the eighteen years, what was more timely, urgent and effective than to restore the health of this woman and bring back her dignity? There is always urgency in compassion will lead Jesus to go against any authority that binds people to a miserable life. There are so many people who are still in the bondage of an oppressing society. What blinds us from taking action? Do we sense what is timely, urgent and effective?”
