Jesus said to his disciples: If you love me, you will keep my commandments..... Whoever has my commandments and observes them is the one who loves me. And whoever loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and reveal myself to him.

Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious of itself. Let the day's own trouble be sufficient for the day. Matthew 6:34

"Learn from the way the wild flowers grow..." Matthew 6:24-34 #worrynomore #gospelfortoday

BE THE LIGHT.
"...it is set on a lampstand,
where it gives light to all in the house. Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father."
-Mt.5:16

We should always choose to love even when it hurts and even when it is difficult. That hurting back is not the only way but loving them like Christ's way.
"But I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you." Matthew 5:44

Thirty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time: For the past couple of years, we have been concerned with “The Big One”—a powerful earthquake that can be triggered by the Marikina River Valley Fault System, which traverses the eastern part of Metro Manila as well as parts of Bulacan, Rizal, Laguna, and Cavite provinces. The exact date and time of a potential earthquake cannot be predicted at this time, but our government agencies have nonetheless advised residents of the affected areas to prepare for “The Big One” through participation in nationwide earthquake drills and taking other precautionary measures.
.
In the same way, Jesus exhorts all of us in today’s Gospel to remain ready and vigilant for another unexpected and unpredictable event: the Day of Judgment. To illustrate his point, he told a parable wherein ten maidens wielding oil lamps went out and meet the bridegroom at a wedding feast. Seeing that the bridgroom was delayed, the ten virgins fell asleep until they woke up to the cry that announces the arrival of the bridegroom. Of the ten, five wise ones were allowed to come in, while the rest who came unprepared were denied admission.
.
Dear friends, the Eucharistic Liturgy is a foretaste of the wedding feast mentioned by Christ in his parables and envisioned by John in the book of Revelation. Time and again, we are told to “call to mind our sins and so prepare ourselves to celebrate these sacred mysteries”. Let us therefore take our preparation seriously, not only during the Mass, but also every day of our earthly journey.
.
Almighty and merciful God, graciously keep from us all adversity, so that, unhindered in mind and body alike, we may pursue in freedom of heart the things that are yours. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. #catholic #instacatholic #gospelfortoday

Thirty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time: This Sunday's Gospel contains one of the most common verses used by detractors to attack our manner of addressing our ordained ministers: “And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven” (Matthew 23:9). If our detractors take this verse literally, then it follows that it is also forbidden to address people using the titles “teacher”, “doctor” (which, by the way, is the Latin word meaning teacher), or even “Venerable Master”. But then again, this is not what Jesus meant.
.
Taken within context, Jesus used this as a hyperbole in his criticism of the hypocrisy of the Pharisees and the Scribes, particularly their tendency to enjoy titles, positions, and places of honor but fail to undertake their duties: they “sit on Moses’ seat; so practice and observe whatever they tell you; for they preach, but do not practice . . . and they love the place of honor at feasts and the best seats in the synagogues, and salutations in the market places, and being called rabbi by men” (vv. 2-3, 6-7).
.
Indeed, as Uncle Ben may have said throughout the Spider-Man series: “with great power comes great responsibility”. Likewise, Jesus reminds us: “He who is greatest among you shall be your servant” (v. 11); in other words, one should work in the service of his fellow people. Come to think about it: Aren’t we all disappointed if a person—especially those in public office and positions of authority—has not done anything good? How can one be worthy to be called father, teacher, or any title if one cannot perform the duties and responsibilities expected of such a position?
.
Almighty and merciful God, by whose gift your faithful offer you right and praiseworthy service: grant, we pray, that we may hasten without stumbling to receive the things you have promised. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. #catholic #instacatholic #gospelfortoday

Have a blessed Sunday to everyone!
Anyone who raises himself up will be humbled, and anyone who humbles himself will be raised up.

Solemnity of All Saints: “Today, through this feast, the Saints give us a message. They tell us: trust in the Lord because the Lord does not disappoint! He never disappoints, he is a good friend always at our side. Through their witness the Saints encourage us to not be afraid of going against the tide or of being misunderstood and mocked when we speak about him and the Gospel; by their life they show us that he who stays faithful to God and to his Word experiences the comfort of his love on this earth and then a ‘hundredfold’ in eternity. This is what we hope for and ask of the Lord, for our deceased brothers and sisters. With her wisdom the Church has placed the Feast of All Saints and All Souls’ Day near each other. May our prayer of praise to God and veneration of the blessed spirits join with the prayer of suffrage for the souls of those who have preceded us in the passage from this world to eternal life.” (Pope Francis, Angelus address, November 1, 2013)
.
Almighty ever-living God, by whose gift we venerate in one celebration the merits of all the Saints: bestow on us, we pray, through the prayers of so many intercessors, an abundance of the reconciliation with you for which we earnestly long. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. #catholic #instacatholic #gospelfortoday

Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time: “The Word of the Lord, which was proclaimed just a moment ago in the Gospel Reading, reminds us that the whole of the Divine Law can be summed up in love. The Evangelist Matthew recounts that the Pharisees, after Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, met to put him to the test (cf. 22:34-35). One of these interlocutors, a doctor of law, asked him: ‘Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?’ (v. 36). Jesus answered the deliberately tricky question, saying quite simply: ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment’ (vv. 37-38). In fact, the main requirement for each one of us is that God be present in our lives. He should, as the Scripture says, penetrate all levels of our being and fill them completely. The heart should know him and let itself be touched by him, and thus also the soul, the energies of our will and determination, as well as intelligence and thought. One could say, as St Paul did, ‘It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me’ (Galatians 2:20).
.
Jesus immediately adds something that the doctor of law did not actually ask: ‘And a second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself’ (Matthew 22:39). By declaring that the second commandment is similar to the first, Jesus implies that loving your neighbor is as important as loving God. In fact, a visible sign that the Christian can show the world in order to witness to God’s love is love for our brothers and sisters.” (Homily of Pope Benedict XVI, October 23, 2011)
.
Almighty ever-living God, increase our faith, hope and charity, and make us love what you command, so that we may merit what you promise. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. #catholic #instacatholic #gospelfortoday

Twenty-ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time: “Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's (Matthew 22:21). The answer Jesus gave to some Jews who were putting him to the test, as on other occasions, stands out in today's Gospel passage. Jesus avoids the trap, showing himself a Master of great wisdom, who teaches the way of God faithfully, without giving in to compromises.
.
Render to God the things that are God's! It is clear that what counts most is the kingdom of God. Christ's words illuminate the lines of conduct for Christians in the world. Faith does not require of them detachment from temporal realities; indeed, it becomes a greater incentive for them to be committed with lively generosity to transforming themselves from within, thus contributing to establishing the kingdom of heaven.
.
The first reading, from the Book of the Prophet Isaiah, also clearly accentuates this truth. For believers there is only one God, who with his Providence guides humanity's journey through history (cf. Isaiah 45:5-6). For this very reason they undertake to build the earthly city, in order to make it more just and human. They are upheld in this effort by the hope that they will one day participate in the communion of the heavenly city where God will be everything to everyone.” (Homily of Pope St. John Paul II, October 17, 1999)
.
Almighty ever-living God, grant that we may always conform our will to yours and serve your majesty in sincerity of heart. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. #catholic #instacatholic #gospelfortoday

LORD here heard the cry of Egypt. And it's not new testament. HE heard them in old testament. The might LORD who showered HIS amazingly abundant mercies upon Egypt can save you and me also. HE wants us to cry out to HIM first in the day of trouble. Today I have separated myself from the world and stood before the LORD. HE hears my cry. I praise HIM for every sweet blessing HE is going to give me. How about you? HE is always listening to you. Are you ready to call upon HIS name and walk with HIM?

Twenty-eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time: “Quant je puis”—All that I can, as much as I can. Such is the motto of an international school in Batangas City, where three of my college friends finished high school. Every morning, we are given an opportunity to better ourselves as well as the lives of those around us. As we thank God for a new day, we also ask Him for the strength and the courage to do more and to be the best that we can be. Many of us Christians have adopted the words of today’s Second Reading, from the letter of Saint Paul to the Philippians, as a motivation to carry out our work to the best of our ability: “I can do all things in Christ who strengthens me”. Indeed, amidst the challenges that come our way, we look to Him as our refuge and guide.
.
In today's Gospel, we hear that the Kingdom of Heaven is like a wedding feast. The Eucharistic Liturgy is a foretaste—or should I say, a sneak peek—of this heavenly feast, and the priest, acting “in persona Christi”, is inviting us to partake in this feast: “Blessed are those called to the supper of the Lamb”! So, how do we respond to this invitation? As with special occasions like weddings, debuts, and family reunions, coming to Mass requires immense preparation. Not only should we come to church on time and in our Sunday’s best, but we also need to examine ourselves, to confess our sins, and to be at peace with one another in order to receive Communion worthily.
.
As we come to meet the Lord in worship today, let us do all that we can, as much as we can, to live a holy and faithful life with the help of God and of our neighbor, that we may one day be worthy to join the eternal feast of heaven.
.
May your grace, O Lord, we pray, at all times go before us and follow after and make us always determined to carry out good works. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. #catholic #instacatholic #gospelfortoday
