Daily Bible Reflections - May 22, 2012


Preaching Fearlessly
 
“For I did not shrink from proclaiming to you the entire plan of God.” – Acts 20:27
 
I can’t help but admire our priests and bishops as they continue to fight against the passage of the RH Bill. Their teachings are not only opposed by a number of congressmen, senators and non-Catholics but even by fellow Catholics. I remember a priest’s homily wherein he said that many Catholics nowadays rebel against the Catholic Church because they don’t have the discipline to live out God’s teachings on sexuality and marriage. It would have been easier for our Church leaders to compromise their teachings and beliefs so as to please the government and other Christians who approve of the RH Bill. But they choose to follow Jesus’ footsteps and walk in obedience to the will of our heavenly Father.
Bombarded by persecution from all sides, like St. Paul, they do not shrink from proclaiming the truth and God’s perfect plan for the family.
It takes a lot of courage to stand up against powerful people and defy popular philosophy. I pray that more of us Catholics would follow their example and fearlessly preach the Gospel, not only with our words, but more importantly with our lives. Teresa Gumap-as Dumadag (teregmps@yahoo.com)

REFLECTION:
What is God’s teaching on marriage and sex? Am I faithful to His instructions?
 
Heavenly Father, illumine my mind that I may recognize Your perfect plan for the family. May You be enthroned in our hearts and in our homes. Reign as King over the Filipino nation.
 
St. Rita of Cascia, pray for us.
