My Reflection for Thursday May 2, Saint Athanasius, Bishop and Doctor of the Church: John 15:9-11


My Reflection:
What will separate us from the love of Jesus? It’s none other than sin! Every time we sin we create a space between us and Jesus. How about Jesus? Does He distance Himself from us whenever we sin? Jesus is always on the move towards us always offering us His unconditional love, regardless if we sin or not.

Such is the love of Jesus for all of us. Always forbearing and patient it stretches until eternity always ready to embrace us once again. But we must not also try to test the endurance of Jesus love for us. For example, we continue to sin because at the back of our minds we know that we can go to Jesus anytime. And ask for His forgiveness through the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

What if in the process of committing sin we meet a tragic accident? Where will we end-up? Of course it’s no brainer that we will be in the fiery furnace of hell. That’s why it’s very important for all of us to take advantage of this offer of Jesus to remain in His love by repenting from all of our sins while we still have time. …

My Reflection for Wednesday May 1, St. Joseph the Worker: Matthew 13:54-58


My Reflection:
What if Saint Joseph was a doctor? Perhaps Jesus townmates would have accepted His wisdom and mighty deeds. But Saint Joseph was a carpenter so they’ve belittled Jesus as a mere carpenter’s son.

We are celebrating today the Feast day of Saint Joseph the Worker. Should we be like Jesus townmates who took offense at Him because He came from a poor family? Of course not! We must give respect to every worker in this world! It doesn’t matter what kind or how lowly their work. What is important is they are working very hard to earn an honest wage.

Saint Joseph is a very simple, quite and humble man. He is very hardworking, Jesus saw his industry and how much he valued his work. That’s why Jesus also decided to become like His earthly father, a carpenter.

Let us pray for the working class, the carpenters, masons and all those who are involved with the very hard daily labor. Let us pray for their safety, let us pray that Saint Joseph will always pray for them. Let us pray to Jesus that He continues to bless the daily laborers with good health and guidance.

My Reflection for Monday April 29, Saint Catherine of Siena, Virgin and Doctor of the Church John 14:21-26

My Reflection:
A retired man was often present at daily Mass. He looked pious and devoted to the faith but when he’s home he unravels himself. He shouts at his wife, He deprives her of some of her rights, he yells at her and he always subjects her to verbal abuse.

Does he truly love God? I don’t think so; his love for God is superficial and is limited inside the four walls of his church. In the gospel Jesus says: “Whoever loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and reveal myself to him.”

Certainly Jesus and our Father the first two persons of the trinity have not revealed themselves to this man. Jesus further states: “Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our dwelling with him.”

Sometimes it’s very hard for us to understand the mysteries of our faith for the reason that we are not true to our faith. Yes, we worship Jesus at Holy Mass but we don’t allow the grace of the Holy Mass to change us.

We continue to overpower Jesus with our arrogance, pride, self-righteousness and our many undesirable attitudes. …
