SURRENDER EVERYTHING TO GOD.

A  Gospel Reflection on the 14th Sunday in Ordinary time, July 3, 2011.

MR JOHN REGINALD BAUTISTA OP

Santo Domingo Church, Quezon City.

Nitong nakaraang Biyernes, July 1, 2011 ay ipinagdiwang natin ang Kapistahan ng Sacred Heart of Jesus. Ang Kapistahang ito ay nagpapakita sa atin na tayong lahat ay mahal ng diyos. Ibinuhos ng Panginoon ang kanyang pagmamahal sa atin kaya tiniis niya ang hirap at sakit. Marami sa inyo ay may debosyon sa Sacred Heart of Jesus.

BAKIT NGA BA TAYO NAGDEDEBOSYON SA SACRED HEART OF JESUS?

Marahil ang ilan sa inyo ay nagpapasalamat sa diyos, ang ilan naman sa inyo ay humihingi ng biyaya sa diyos, ang ilan din naman sa inyo ay may mga problema at pasanin sa buhay. Kaya ang ilan sa inyo ay nagdedebosyon sa Sacred Heart of Jesus ay sapagkat marami sa inyo ay nahihirapan na sa mga problema sa inyong buhay. Kapag tayo ay nahihirapan na sa buhay, iniisip natin lagi kung paano masosolusyonan ang mga problema na iyan, iniisip natin lagi kung paano natin malalampasan ang mga problemang dumating sa buhay natin.

Ang ilan sa inyo kapag hindi nakayanan ang mga problema,

ANO ANG GINAGAWA NINYO?

Meron diyan NAGPAPAKAMATAY!

meron diyan NAGPAPAKALASING!

IDINADAAN NA LANG SA PAG-INOM NG ALAK!

MERON DIYAN NALULULONG SA DROGA!

O ANG IBA NAMAN DIYAN AY NAGSUSUGAL AT IDINADAAN NA LANG SA PANINIGARILYO!

SA PALAGAY NIYO BA YANG GINAGAWA NINYONG IYAN AY MAKAKALUTAS SA INYONG MGA PROBLEMA?

HINDI!

HINDI IYAN ANG SOLUSYON SA PROBLEMA NINYO!!!!

YANG MGA GINAGAWA NINYONG IYAN AY LALO PANG NADADAGDAGAN ANG MGA PROBLEMA NINYO SA INYONG BUHAY!!!

ANG TANGING SOLUSYON SA MGA PROBLEMA NATIN AY ANG DIYOS!

TUTULUNGAN TAYO NG PANGINOON!

TUTULUNGAN NIYA TAYO NA MALAMPASAN ANG MGA PROBLEMANG PINAGDADAANAN NATIN SA ATING BUHAY!

ANO ANG DAPAT NATING GAWIN PARA TAYO AY TULUNGAN NG DIYOS SA ATING MGA PROBLEMA?

LUMAPIT TAYO SA KANYA.

Kaya sa mga parokya ay meron Adoration Chapel ay sapagkat yun ang lugar na inilaan para tayo ay makalapit sa panginoon. Yun ang lugar para makausap natin ang panginoon at sabihin sa kanya ang lahat ng mga pinagdadaanan natin sa buhay. Ito ang paanyaya ng Panginoon para sa ating lahat na mga nahihirapan sa buhay.

Ang Sabi ni Hesus,

“COME TO ME ALL YOU WHO LABOR AND ARE BURDENED AND I WILL GIVE YOU REST.”

Iyan ang ating Ebanghelyo (Matthew 11:25-30) sa araw na ito ng 14th Sunday in Ordinary time, July 3, 2011. Patuloy tayong inaanyayahan ng Panginoon na lumapit tayo sa kanya at tutulungan niya tayo. Sa ating paglapit sa kanya, ang panginoon mismo ay nakikipag-usap sa atin at meron siyang itinuturo sa atin para tayong lahat ay guminhawa sa buhay.

Alam ninyo kapag tayo ay lumapit sa panginoon, kahit gaano man kabigat ang mga problemang pinagdadaanan natin sa buhay, kapag nasabi na natin sa panginoon ang lahat ng mga pinagdadaanan natin sa buhay ay gumagaan ang ating pakiramdam. Ang Mahalaga po dito kapag tayo ay nasa Adoration Chapel ay nakikinig tayo mismo sa panginoon.

HINDI YUNG TAYO LANG ANG DAKDAK NANG DAKDAK SA PANGINOON!

GUSTO NATIN LAGI AY TAYO LANG ANG PAKIKINGGAN NG PANGINOON!

EH PAANO NAMAN ANG PANGINOON?!

NAKIKIPAG-USAP SIYA SA ATIN PERO TAYO NAMAN AY HINDI NAKIKINIG SA KANYA!

Kaya importante na TAYO RIN AY MAKINIG SA KANYA AT MATUTO TAYO SA KANYANG MGA SINASABI AT ITINUTURO SA ATIN.

Sa paglapit natin sa panginoon sa Blessed Sacrament sa loob ng Adoration Chapel nawa’y isuko natin ang ating sarili sa Panginoon.

SURRENDER EVERYTHING TO GOD,

at tayo ay kanyang bibigyan ng kapahingahan.

Proud to be  DOMINICAN!WANTED: LAY DOMINICANS.

WHO ARE THE LAY DOMINICANS?

Being a lay dominican does not simply to be considered as a “Lay Person affiliated with the Dominican Order”. a Lay Dominican is a full member and part of the Dominican Order. he/she is a Dominican

The lay Dominicans or Secular Dominicans, as they are called today, (and who in the past have been known as Dominican Tertiaries, members of the Third Orders of St. Dominic, or members of the Order of Penance of St. Dominic) are ‘an Association of the faithful living in the world, who participate in the religious and apostolic life of the Order of Friars Preachers under the guidance of the Dominican Brethren and according to the Rule approved by the Holy See and thus strive for Christian Perfection.’ Although the word profession is often used, they do not take vows and, therefore, cannot be strictly called religious; yet, in a wide sense, they may be called religious living in the world. (R.Vahey, OP,Information)

‘Their vocation is superior to membership in a sodality or confraternity because it includes canonical status in a major religious Order and embraces a more universal objective’ (J.Rubba OP, Third Order of St. Dominic)

It is composed of Lay people, men and women, single and married, who live in and are a sign to the World.

(Excerpts from: Lay Dominicans Manual by:Eladio Neira, OP p29)
Brief History

From the very beginning of the Order of Preachers, there are already groups of Lay people that participates in the apostolic works and associates themselves with the dominican friars. accordingly, “it has its origin in one of the twelfht century penitential movements which centered around St. Dominic, the founder of the Order of Preachers gathered around himself groups of Lay People for the spiritual and material defense of the Church and, ultimately for the participation in the Apostolate. (E.Neira, O.P.) “Thus, it is not surprising that the “history” of the Third Order does not begin in 1285, when the Master General Munio de Zamora officially promulgated its Rule, nor back to the early years of the 13th century, when St. Dominic lived and worked. The “history” of the Third Order goes back many decades before that. To understand what the Third Order is and whence it came, we have to look at the Church of the Middle Ages and the society in which it lived.” (Richard Weber)

it was known then to be the Order of Penitents of St. Dominic, Third Order of St. Dominic, and now as “Lay Dominican Fraternities”.
