The story in our Gospel sees a mixture of religion and politics, a potentially explosive combination. Jesus does not ask us to avoid politics, but that our involvement in the affairs of the world be informed by the perspective of the Reign of God.
Pharisees and Herodians were not natural allies but a shared dislike of Jesus brought them together in an attempt to discredit him. Jesus did not get into an argument with them but simply professed his belief in the priority of God in his life.



The Eucharistic Congress Bell is a symbol of the Eucharistic Congress being held in Dublin in June 2012.
