Reflection for May 9, Monday of the Seventh Week of Easter; John 16:29-33

Gospel: John 16:29-33
The disciples said to Jesus, “Now you are talking plainly, and not in any figure of speech. Now we realize that you know everything and that you do not need to have anyone question you. Because of this we believe that you came from God.” Jesus answered them, “Do you believe now? Behold, the hour is coming and has arrived when each of you will be scattered to his own home and you will leave me alone. But I am not alone, because the Father is with me. I have told you this so that you might have peace in me. In the world you will have trouble, but take courage, I have conquered the world.”

Reflection:
A man aspired to become rich and by his hard work he indeed became rich. But because of the pressure he had no peace of mind.

Perhaps many of us are like this man, we have no peace of mind. For the simple reason that we put forward in this world our personal ambition and we treat Jesus like a spare tire. We only pray to Him when we need Him. 

There are even times that we compeletely forget Him until sickness and troubles catch up with us. If this world gives us nothing but troubles and sickness Jesus is always there to counter this troublesome world with His promise of peace.

But how many of us have experienced this peace of Jesus? Not many perhaps and the obvious reason is we only remember Jesus when we are in dire need of Him. Or yes we remember HIM but when temptation comes we easily betray Him for the pleasures of this world.

Why not change this cycle? Why not make Jesus our first priority so that we could finally feel His peaceful presence in our lives? And once we feel the peaceful presence of Jesus in our life we already are complete and we lack nothing. – Marino J. Dasmarinas
