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 Saturday November 9, Dedication of the Lateran Basilica in Rome; John 2:13-22

+ + + + + + +
My Reflection:
What is the message of Jesus for us in our gospel? It’s respect for His church, the same church that you visit everyday if you’re a daily Mass goer.  And the same church that you visit every Sunday if you are a regular Sunday Mass goer.

This is a very strong reminder for all of us because nowadays the church is not anymore used solely for worship and prayer. Some parish churches sometimes are used for rumor mongering, for business opportunities and sometimes it’s used as a trysting place for lovers.

And who are they? Sad to say but some of them are the  people who are directly involve in the church. They are not the ordinary Mass goer but those who spend time and do volunteer work for the church.   

Another temple that Jesus wants to speak about is our very own bodies which is the temple of the Holy Spirit. What have we done to our bodies? What are the values that we feed and conjure in our minds?

Perhaps, Jesus wants to remind you and me about the real purpose of the church.  It's always  a temple of worship and a safe refuge for the poor, for those who are lost and losing hope.

The word of God is always relevant and timely it directly speaks to us and when it speaks to us we must listen. …
