My Reflection for Tuesday November 12, Saint Josaphat, Bishop and Martyr, Luke 17:7-10

+ + + + + + +
My Reflection:
Once in a while there are vicious calamities like this brutal typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan that will force us to question if there is really God. I for one has been reflecting on this thought, is there really God? And because we were taught that there is a God we will say, yes there is God. But then again at the backs of our minds we will ask again and again and again. If there’s a God, why these destructions and why this extreme sufferings and deaths?

We don’t know the answers to these very valid questions because there are times that God seems to be deaf to our longing for Him. But who are we to question the majesty of God? We are but a speck in this world, finite humans that easily gives up on God whenever we are faced with this massive kind of disaster.

In our lowliness before this infinite and all powerful God, I think it’s also valid for us to ask Him questions. It’s also valid for us to beg for answers, why? Why all these sufferings and chaos? Why this innocent loss of lives? Let us ask God to answer these valid questions of ours for the reason that even servants have rights too.

In spite all of these bleak and heart wrenching incidents we who remain alive must not lose faith. No matter how depressing the situation, we must not lose faith! We must continue to hold on to this God who gave us life and faith. Otherwise if we will lose faith, to where will we go? We embrace atheism? We do evil and allow the Devil to take control of our lives? That would be more catastrophic than the destruction of typhoon Yolanda. 

Let us therefore cling to our faith with all our might. Even if we are mere servants in the vineyard of the majestic Lord for even servants are entitled to have faith in Him. …
