Nature of Forgiveness

It has never been easy for most us to easily forgive the people who mistreated us, betrayed us, sinned against us or in other possible way, hurt us- intentionally or unintentionally. We ask ourselves why someone can possibly do something which is against and...

Brokenness that needs healing first with our unconditional open heart in honest conversations with the one who hurts us.  Our hope must be for restoration to wholeness of the person who hurt and harmed us otherwise their wound remains both in them and us.  Truth and...

Be one with Him ~ 22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

It is a struggle to be what God wants us to be nor follow what He commands when we can also be our own Satan in some ways. In the scriptures, Peter expresses His disagreement of God’s plan when Jesus tells them that He, the Son of the living God, must go to Jerusalem...

AFTER THOUGHT ~ September 3, 2017 ~ 22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

“If you want to follow me, deny yourself, take up your cross and follow me.” Life is full of boundless possibilities, but in order to transform a possibility into a reality we have to choose – sacrificing the many in order to attain the one. Nothing is gain without...

Jesus: The Son of the Living God

As Catholics, we value everything that has to do with our faith in God. We go to church and attend masses to honour our Saviour Jesus Christ. We know that we owe Him our salvation and so He therefore has a lot of significance in our lives. But is that all that we know about Him? How well and deep do we know our Jesus?

Seek, Knock and Keep Knocking ~ 20th Sunday in Ordinary Time

There is something special about how a woman cares for a child whether that child is natural born, adopted or just someone that the woman has become a mother to. The heart of the mother is to love. We are always amazed when we hear sacrificial love of a mother for her child. It reminds us the amazing compassion and love that God has for each and every one of us. Love motivates men and women to attempt difficult things. When we love someone, we are willing to do anything to help and pray for them with persistence, humility and determination.

Faith in God and His Church

Deep Within

Today, our Gospel passage is helping us to look inside us, to find something hidden in there.  The kingdom of Heaven is like a hidden treasure…, is like a merchant searching out pearls with a great price…., is like a net full of fish.  What is the greatest treasure in...

Let them grow together until harvest

When I think about the bad things that happen to good people, it is very easy to wish ill against those responsible. and when there is loss of life involved, how I wish the bad people would just disappear! This, to me, is a typical human response. On the other hand,...

Binhi ~ Matthew 13:1-23

Karamihan sa atin ay may mga taniman o “garden”. Lahat tayo, maalam man sa pagtatanim o hindi ay may ideya sa pagpupunla ng mga binhi. Alam nating lahat na hindi lahat ng naipupunla ay uusbong bilang isang mabungang pananim. Ang ibang binhi ay maaaring hindi na nga...
