“In this world you will have trouble. But take courage! I have conquered the world.” – John 16:33 - Daily Bible Reflections May 18,2015


KRISTINE AND
YOLANDA
 
“In this world you will have trouble. But take courage! I have conquered the world.” – John 16:33
 
       As head of the coverage team of our media ministry for the Kerygma Conference 2013, the big inspirational event founded by Bo Sanchez, Kristine Mutuc was supposed to attend the Servants’ Empowerment Gathering, the teambuilding event of the conference, scheduled on November 9, 2013.
       Kristine could not attend the gathering because she had a previous engagement she could not cancel.
       Then, on November 8, Super Typhoon Yolanda hit the country, so the servants’ gathering was moved to November 16.
        No, I don’t think the calamity happened to enable Kristine to attend to her duty as manager of our coverage team.
       We did learn a lesson from the incident — which is the same teaching Jesus gives in today’s Gospel: We will have trouble in this world, but we must take heart because He has overcome the world.
       Yes, because He has triumphed over the cross, Jesus can help us triumph over any trial — be it as bothersome as Kristine’s conflict of schedules or as horrendous as super typhoon Yolanda. Cynthia U. Santiago (cusantiago@gmail.com)
 
Reflection: We shall overcome.
 
Lord, spare me from calamities. But should the storms come, let me not forget You are beside me.
 
St. John I, pope and martyr, pray for us.
