“The most eloquent prayer is the prayer through hands that heal and bless.” (Billy Graham) - Daily Bible Reflections July 28,2014

“The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed with three measures of wheat flour until the whole batch was leavened.” – Matthew 13:33
I love bread. Mostly I love bread with raisins. The raisin bread of Baguio Country Club. The wheat raisin bread of Gardenia. The Raisin Braid of BreadTalk. These are just some of my favourites.
       I also love “eating” the host during Communion, even if it has no raisins. (Insider info: When I serve as Mass commentator and there are extra consecrated hosts and no Tabernacle nearby, we consume the rest.)
       The difference between these two kinds of bread is that hosts have no yeast, that’s why they don’t rise.
       If I were to be bread, I should be so simple that I can be a host — used by God to nourish souls. But I should also become “leavened” — enriched — so that I can grow and nourish other lives.
       In the spiritual life, to be leavened or to be unleavened is not mutually exclusive. It is only important that you put yourself in the hand of the Breadmaker. For He is the One who will feed you to those who are hungry and need nourishment. Joy Sosoban-Roa (jsosoban@gmail.com)
Reflection: “The most eloquent prayer is the prayer through hands that heal and bless.” (Billy Graham)
Thank You, Lord, for causing growth. Thank You also for keeping us grounded. I put myself in Your hands. Use me as You will.
St. Leopold Mandic, pray for us.
