I am with you always until the end of this world - Jesus (Matthew 28:20).

Preach the Word in season and out of season reproving, rebuking or advising always with patience and providing instructions (2 Timothy 4:2).

Do not fear, Mary, for God has looked kindly on you (Luke 1:30).

Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly. - G. K. Chesterton

My Reflection for Wednesday July 3, Feast of Saint Thomas, Apostle: John 20:24-29

My Reflection:
What impels us to go to Mass? It’s our deep faith in Jesus, we allocate time and we prepare ourselves for this union with Jesus. But there are times that we get disappointed with the homily of the priest. So instead of going back to Mass some of us would purposely miss it and we will just be content on watching tv Mass.

But is this correct? No it’s not! Whenever we purposely fail to voluntarily submit ourselves to the celebration of the Holy Mass. We also deny ourselves deeper intimacy with Jesus and as a result of this we miss the opportunity to further deepen our faith in Him.

Thomas was nowhere to be found when Jesus made himself visible once again to His apostles. Where was he around that time? Perhaps he was just around the vicinity pondering about his faith and the role of Jesus in his life.     

Maybe we are also thinking about our faith and the role of Jesus in our lives. Continue doing it for it will lead us to a personal encounter with the risen Christ. …
