Welcome to the Unofficial Catholic Exegesis. This show is Monday through Friday sometime between 8PM and 10PM. I am a member of the laity whose only desire is to provide a Catholic Perspective on Blog Talk Radio. While I hope for my interpretation to be unique, I also hope for my interpretation to be within the Catholic Catechism.

In Today's reading the question is asked: What is required of us?

The Gospel of Luke in today's reading makes it very clear to us, Catholics, there is a degree of responsibility to which each of us is held. This responsibility varies by our understanding and our position in the church. From the Pope to the humble member, there is a varying degree of responsibility.


The Letter of Paul to the Romans, further reinforces what is particularly expected of the masses. That expectation comes in the respect towards our body. Each one, no matter how humble, must act with grace and must reject sin. Sin comes not from within, but either brought in or rejected from our bodies.
