:“Consider this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.” (2 Corinthians 9:6) - Daily Bible Reflections June 21, 2017


BLESSED ARE THE
NAMELESS
 
“And your Father who sees what is hidden will repay you.” – Matthew 6:18
 
       I am a silent worker in our office. Even after two years in my current job, I’m still not used to our office culture of everyday meetings and detailing the things I do and have worked on. For me, as long as my supervisor knows what I am doing, I’m OK with it.
    I also happened to meet someone who is planning to enter the seminary. During a search-in session which I attended, he shared that he always brings a piece of bread or biscuit in his bag. Not for him, but to give to a beggar who enters the jeepney or bus he is riding in. And even if I had not seen him since then, I fondly remember him for such a kind act. I knew there and then that he would be a good fit for priesthood.
      I also greatly admire those who donate church pews without revealing their names. They’re the ones who believe that their reward is not in this earth, but in heaven. Indeed, blessed are those who are humble and do not boast for they will receive God’s greatest blessing. Gracious B. Romero (graciousromero@gmail.com)

Lord, help us to be cheerful givers. Amen.

Are you comfortable jumping into the unknown, with only God’s love to catch you? It’s easier said than done - Daily Bible Reflections June 2, 2017


EVERYDAY
MARTYRDOM
 
“But when you grow old... someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go.” – John 21:18
 
       Nanay Remy was my foster mother when I spent two weeks in the mountains of Batangas on an immersion camp in college. She was a spirited elderly woman, with hair grayed by age, legs toughened by walking, hands calloused by labor, and face wrinkled by smiles. Each day, I accompanied her as she went around to do chores. Among many tasks, I would carry the buckets of water, collect the wood for cooking, and occasionally pound some corn for chicken feed. She was a busy woman, wrapped in the poverty of life.
       I couldn’t forget how she spoke with much dignity and wisdom. “I’m a native of Pampanga,” she said. “I grew up in a well-off family, and I had a future ahead of me. But then I met Banoy, who was a farmer here in Batangas. We fell in love. He uprooted me from that life and brought me here. Many times, I regretted that decision. I wasn’t ready for this poor life. I would complain, but I still held on. Now I have no regrets. My family is here, and so my heart is here.”
       That’s martyrdom. It’s dying to yourself every day because you know what is really important. Migs Ramirez (migsramirez.seminars@gmail.com)
 
Reflection:Are you comfortable jumping into the unknown, with only God’s love to catch you? It’s easier said than done.
 
Mama Mary, saying yes to God wasn’t easy but you did it. Teach me to say yes and follow Jesus closer even during my trials.
 
Sts. Marcellinus and Peter, martyrs, pray for us.

There are five languages of love – words, touch, gifts, presence and service. How do you express your love to your significant other? How do you show your love to God? - Daily Bible Reflections May 31, 2017


Feast of the Visitation of the
Blessed Virgin Mary
 
TRUE LOVE
 
Let love be sincere. – Romans 12:9
 
       “I married her soul, her character, and she’s the only woman who will continue to fulfill my dreams.” This was the declaration of a gentleman when asked if he ever thought of leaving his girlfriend.
       In 2015, the social network carried the love story of a beautiful ex-model and her handsome boyfriend. The woman figured in a fire accident. Sixty-five percent of her body, including her face, was burned and she lost the fingers and thumb on her right hand. Instead of leaving, her boyfriend quit his job and took care of her. They remained a strong couple in love in spite of her disfigured appearance.
       Men naturally choose the beautiful, sexy and intelligent woman. When her body becomes fat and saggy, her facial lines appear, and her character flaws surface, men find a reason to find a new partner.
       How much do we love God? Is it only up to the point where His commandments are easy to follow and everything seems to be going our way? We may be fickle with our love for God, but His love for us is unconditional. He will remain with us forever in spite of our disfigured character. Marie Franco (mariefranco_pie@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: There are five languages of love – words, touch, gifts, presence and service. How do you express your love to your significant other? How do you show your love to God?
 
Lord, I am not worthy of Your unconditional love. But the promise of it fills my heart and makes me confident to face life.
 
St. Mechtildis, pray for us.

How can you be a good example to children around you? - Daily Bible Reflections March 22, 2017


 
CHILDREN SEE,
CHILDREN DO
 
“But teach them to your children and to your children’s children...” – Deuteronomy 4:9
 
      When I meet parents for coaching, I share with them a life lesson I learned from my sister, a preschool teacher: “Our kids pick up from our actions more than we realize.”
       There’s a video of five-year-old toddlers following every move of their adult companion.
       When mom litters, daughter litters.
       Dad curses clerk, son curses clerk.
       Driving mom gives a dirty finger, son gives a dirty finger.
       Dad raises hand at mom, son raises hand at baby.
       Children see, children do.
       The good side of this is that children learn good things the same way. They learn kindness, respect, forgiveness, humility, caring, love, happiness, celebration, confidence, persistence, aspiration when they see you do it.
       Whatever we know to be good, to be true, to be kind, to be loving, let’s do it even in the simplest way. Smile. Greet good morning. Say thank you. Clean as you go. Let others pass through before you.
  Because what people see, people do. Edwin S. Soriano (edwin@winningcoaching.net)
 
Reflection:How can you be a good example to children around you?
 
Lord, as Your child, let me show Your love through my actions.
 
St. Nicholas Owen, pray for us.
