ANIBERSARYO NG DIOCESE OF PASIG: CARDINAL TAGLE

Pagninilay ng kanyang Kabunyian Luis Antonio G. Cardinal Tagle sa ika - 10 Anibersaryo ng pagkakatatag ng Diyosesis ng Pasig

Isang  tatak ng sambayanang kristiyano ang pasasalamant at  laging mulat sa sambayanan ng  Diyos tulad ni Maria. Hamon ang kasamang panawagan na maging totoo sa kanyang panawagan kaya magkakaroon tayo ng conversion at pagnanais na maging dalisay.

 Minsan humihina ang pagpapanibago kahit panay ang pasasalamat. Huwag magsasawa. Manalig dahil ang simbahan ay nasa kamay ng Panginoon.  Ang tao ay laging may lilinisin, dadalisayin at patuloy na umasa sa Panginoon.

Ang mga key concepts na pasasalamat, pagpapanibago at pananalig kay Kristo ay magkakaugnay, hinango ko ang aking pagninilay sa sulat pastoral ni Bp. Mylo.  Tayo ay kinasihan ng biyaya na maging diyosesis at nagkakaroon ng pagpapanibago at pananalig  ang ating diyosesis kay Kristo.

Ano ba ang pagiging Diyosesis?  Why be thankful? What do we need to be thankful for? 

      Vat. II. , in its Christus Dominus document (meaning Lord Jesus) talks about the bishops.  It says  that  a diocese is that portion of God's people which is entrusted to a bishop.  Ito ay tunay na simbahan kung saan ating nararanasan ang pagiging isang katolika at banal.

    There are 4 components of a diocese which are our object of pasasalamat, pananalig at pagpapanibago.

    1. Simbahan na tinipon ng Holy Spirit - implications ng pagkilos na ito. . . hindi lahat ng pagtitipon ay diocesan gathering.  How do we know if the Holy Spirit is the reason for the gathering?  Kapag may pananampalataya.  A diocese is a community of faith. Faith is the reason for the gathering and this is what we have to be thankful for at nabubuklod tayo bilang isang bayan. If not for the Holy Spirit hindi tayo magkakatipon dito.  iba - iba tayo pero nagkakaisa tayo dahil sa biyaya ng Holy Spirtit.  This is a miracle. kahit iba iba tayo nagiging iisa sa pananampalataya.

Ano ba ang mga kilos ng Holy Spirit?  Marami. Halimabawa natuturuan tayong manalangin nang samasama,  -isang komunidad na nananalangin sa Diyos.

    Ang Holy Spirit ay nagbibigay ng iba't  ibang gifts na tanda rin ng pagkilos nito.

If we have the gift to teach, share talents and be a catechist and use this to promote God's teachings for the common good and faith;  You can also use your gift of cooking not only for your family but for the prisoners, feeding program, kung magaling kang kumanta puede ka sa choir, etc. gamitin natin ang ating mga alento o galing sa paglilingkod sa simbahan at sa Diyos.

 

    Think about pagpapanibago because there are many gifts of the Holy Spirit which we do not develop and use.  Sometimes nagseselos tayo sa gifts ng iba.  That is why we need repentance. Nasasayang pag hindi nagagamit sa common good.

    2.  From Christus Dominus- paano kumikilos ang Holy Spirit.  Ang sabi ay sa pamamagitan ng obispo at mga kaparian.  This is a ministry of communion. Lahat ng ordained ay servants, tagapaglingkod para kay Kristo. Thank the Holy Spirit sa kanyang tiwala para ang bayan ay matipon. At sa pasasalamat, magpanibago rin tayo.  Baguhin ang isip, style which do not purify at hindi nagkakaisa ang tao.

Manalig sa Panginoon.  Lahat tayo ay makasalanan.  We need to repeatedly renew kung ano ba talaga ang mission ng mga kaparian sa bayan ng Diyos.. . tagapangasiwa, tagabuklod ng bayan ng Diyos hindi ng pera o building but the gifts of the Holy Spirit in the diocese and the best assests of the church, the faithful.  Pray for them to be good, remind them with true concern. Love them in all sincerity. Pray that they be obedient to the Holy Spirit.

3.  The Word of God makes the diocese a true diocese.  Faith comes from hearing from the preacher ng Salita ng  Diyos na siya nating pamantayan sa buhay.  Paulit ulit para hindi malimutan.

 At ang Salita ay hindi kinukuha kung saan saan but sa Salita na nagbibigay ng buhay sa atin, ang Salita ng Diyos. Through these, individually and as a community,  nagkakaisa tayong lahat. Pag-ibayuhin ang catechetical ministry kahit na nasaang ministry tayo.  Use and give away bibles para maikalat ang Salita ng Diyos. His Word should always be the motivation for our action.

 Check on our knowledge of faith through the bible and the teachings of the church.

    4. Ang Holy Spirit ang nag-iipon sa mga tao through the Sacraments na siyang simbolo ng biyaya ng Diyos sa atin thru rituals, symbols, tubig, langis. .Ang mga sakramento ay  pagtitipon sa pananampalataya at pagdiriwang sa pananampalataya.

Maraming salamat po at maligayang anibersaryo.

Gateway to Life

 

Readings:
Isaiah 66:18-21
Psalm 117:1, 2
Hebrews 12:5-7, 11-13
Luke 13:22-30

Jesus doesn’t answer the question put to Him in this Sunday’s Gospel. It profits us nothing to speculate on how many will be saved. What we need to know is what He tells us today - how to enter into salvation and how urgent it is to strive now, before the Master closes the door.

Jesus is “the narrow gate,” the only way of salvation, the path by which all must travel to enter the kingdom of the Father (see John 14:6).

In Jesus, God has come - as He promises in this week’s First Reading - to gather nations of every language, to reveal to them His glory.

Eating and drinking with them, teaching in their streets, Jesus in the Gospel is slowly making His way to Jerusalem. There, Isaiah’s vision will be fulfilled: On the holy mountain He will be lifted up (see John 3:14), will draw to Himself bretheren from among all the nations - to worship in the heavenly Jerusalem, to glorify Him for His kindness, as we sing in Sunday’s Psalm.

In God’s plan, the kingdom was proclaimed first to the Israelites and last to the Gentiles (see Romans 1:16; Acts 3:25-26), who in the Church have come from the earth’s four corners to make up the new people of God (see Isaiah 43:5-6; Psalm 107:2-3).

Many however will lose their place at the heavenly table, Jesus warns. Refusing to accept His narrow way they will weaken, render themselves unknown to the Father (see Isaiah 63:15-16).

We don’t want to be numbered among those of drooping hands and weak knees (see Isaiah 35:3). So we must strive for that narrow gate, a way of hardship and suffering - the way of the beloved Son.

As this week’s Epistle reminds us, by our trials we know we are truly God’s sons and daughters. We are being disciplined by our afflictions, strengthened to walk that straight and narrow path - that we may enter the gate, take our place at the banquet of the righteous.

 

 Yours in Christ,

sa gitna ng bagyo

Dear parishioners,

 

Hindi ko kayo marating nang personal sa gitna ng malakas at walang tigil na ulan pero gusto ko malaman ninyo na laman kayo na aking mga panalangin.

 

Alam ko sa tulong ni Sto Tomas de Villanueva, iingatan kayo ng Panginoong Hesus.

 

Ingatan din po ninyo ang inyong kalusugan at kaligtasan sa gitna ng malakas na bagyong ito. Matatapos din ito. May awa ang Diyos!

 

God bless you!

 

Ang inyong Kura Paroko,

 

Fr. Ramil,

20th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Consuming Fire

18
Hebrews 12:1–4
Luke 12:49–53

 

Our God is a consuming fire, the Scriptures tell us (see Hebrews 12:29; Deuteronomy 4:24).

And in this week’s Gospel, Jesus uses the image of fire to describe the demands of discipleship.

The fire he has come to cast on the earth is the fire that he wants to blaze in each of our hearts. He made us from the dust of the earth (see Genesis 2:7), and filled us with the fire of the Holy Spirit in baptism (see Luke 3:16).

We were baptized into his death (see Romans 6:3). This is the baptism our Lord speaks of in the Gospel this week. The baptism with which He must be baptized is His passion and death, by which He accomplished our redemption and sent forth the fire of the Spirit on the earth (see Acts 2:3).

The fire has been set, but it is not yet blazing. We are called to enter deeper into the consuming love of God. We must examine our consciences and our actions, submitting ourselves to the revaling fire of God’s Word (see 1 Corinthians 3:13).

In our struggle against sin, we have not yet resisted to the point of shedding our own blood, Paul tells us in this week’s Epistle. We have not undergone the suffering that Jeremiah suffers in the First Reading this week. 

But this is what true discipleship requires. To be a disciple is to be inflamed with the love of the God. It is to have an unquenchable desire for holiness and zeal for the salvation of our brothers and sisters.

Being His disciple does not bring peace in the false way that the world proclaims peace (see Jeremiah 8:11). It means division and hardship. It may bring us to conflict with our own flesh and blood.

But Christ is our peace (see Ephesians 2:14). By his cross, he has lifted us up from the mire of sin and death—as he will rescue the prophet Jeremiah (see Jeremiah 38:10).

And as we sing in the Psalm this week, we trust in our deliverer.

 

Yours in Christ,

 

Scott Hahn, Ph.D.
