Daily Bible Reflections - March 25,2013


Holy Monday
 
OPPORTUNIST
 
“Why was this oil not sold for three hundred days’ wages and given to the poor?” He (Judas) said this not because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief and held the moneybag and used to steal the contributions. – John 12:5-6
 
Typhoon Sendong wreaked havoc in southern Philippines days before Christmas 2011. Filipinos and the international community immediately put together efforts to give aid to its victims.
A friend posted on his Facebook wall, asking people to recommend to him a reliable organization through which he could course his donations in kind. That’s a good question, I thought. Because there were reported instances in the past wherein relief goods never reached the donees in calamity-stricken areas. What happened? The goods were most likely intercepted by the Judases of today.
It is disquieting to know that there are people who take advantage of dire situations for their own benefit. Thank God that there are those who keep watch, securing the interest of those in need.
This Holy Monday, as we begin reflecting on the passion and death of our Lord Jesus Christ, may we also share in His compassion for the needy without wanting anything in return. Nova Arias-Sevilla (nova.svp@gmail.com)
 
Reflection: Do you share your resources with the needy wholeheartedly?
 
Lord Jesus, teach me to extend my arms to our less fortunate brothers and sisters. Amen.
 
St. Dismas, pray for us.
