What obstacles keep you from seeing Jesus at every moment of every day? - Daily Bible Reflections December 29,2014


MORE FUN IN THE
PHILIPPINES!
 
It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. – Luke 2:26
 
In 2012, the tourism slogan, “It’s more fun in the Philippines!” caught on. Tourist arrivals increased as targeted. The slogan reflected what was unique in our country.
       There is never a time that this tagline is more true than the Christmas season. Ours is the longest celebration and probably the most festive. Simbang gabi. Puto-bumbong and bibingka. The fireworks. The endless family reunions. The gift giving. Our malls dressed up for the season. The caroling. The list goes on and on...
       No people in Asia — even in the world — appreciates the Christmas season like we do.
       But as I write about this “love affair” of the Filipinos with this season, I wonder if we have the same (or much more) love for its Reason — Jesus.
       In today’s Gospel, Simeon was given a message that he would see the Messiah before his life ends. Today as I reflect on this, I pray that I may see the Lord Jesus before this season ends.
       Before this day ends. Before every moment ends. Ariel Driz (adriz77@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: What obstacles keep you from seeing Jesus at every moment of every day?
 
Lord Jesus, You are the Reason for the season, You are the Reason for my life. May I live each moment for You! Amen.
 
St. Thomas Becket, bishop and martyr, pray for us.
