My Reflection for Thursday August 8, Memorial of Saint Dominic, Matthew 16:13-23

My Reflection:
Just like Peter many of us are averse with sufferings; we want to avoid it as much as possible. Perhaps this is our human nature; we don’t want to suffer for the simple reason that it’s difficult. But sufferings are part and parcel of our lives. No matter how we deftly avoid it, it will eventually catch us along our journey in this world.

How about Jesus? Was HE averse with sufferings? No, HE was not, in fact HE told HIS disciples that HE would be suffering greatly from the hands of elders, chief priest and scribes then eventually be killed by them.

Jesus embraced HIS sufferings for the reason that HE knew that it was part of HIS mission of salvation. HE let go of HIS life and HE entrusted it to the almighty God.

Life is not always how we like it to be, there will come a time that we will encounter hardships and sufferings. Let us not lose sleep about this, let us simply trust our all knowing and all loving almighty God. …
