HEAVEN OR HELL.
Marahil lahat kayo ay gustong makarating sa langit.
Walang gustong pumunta sa impiyerno. Lahat kayo ay gustong makarating sa langit.
Alam ninyo madaling sabihin na gusto natin makarating sa langit. Pero bago tayong makarating sa langit at para matupad ang minimithi natin na makapasok sa langit ay may mga requirements na hinihingi sa atin ang panginoon.
ANO ANG MGA REQUIREMENTS NA HINIHINGI SA ATIN NG PANGINOON?
ANO BA ANG MGA KINAKAILANGAN PARA TAYO AY MAKAPASOK SA LANGIT?
Una at higit sa lahat, sundin natin ang utos ng diyos, makinig tayo sa mga pangaral ni hesus, isabuhay natin ang salita ng diyos, gumawa tayo ng kabutihan sa kapwa. Kapag nagawa natin ang mga bagay na ito, 100 % ay makakapasok tayo sa langit. Meron iba diyan, nagsasabing gustong makarating sa langit pero WALA NAMAN SIYANG GINAGAWA!
HINDI NAMAN SIYA NAGSISIKAP NA GUMAWA NG MABUTI!
HINDI SIYA NAGSISIKAP NA SUMUNOD SA UTOS NG DIYOS AT ISABUHAY ANG SALITA NG DIYOS!
PAANO KA MAKAKARATING SA LANGIT KUNG GANYAN ANG LIFESTYLE MO?!
HUWAG MONG SASABIHIN SA AKIN NA NAGSISIMBA KA ARAW-ARAW!
KAHIT GAWIN MO ANG MGA BAGAY NA IYAN KUNG GUMAGAWA KA PA RIN NG MASAMA AY WALA RIN KWENTA IYAN!
HINDI KA PA RIN PUPUNTA SA LANGIT AT DERETSO KA PA RIN SA IMPIYERNO!
Kaya nga sa mga pangangaral ni Hesus ay gumagamit siya ng mga parables. Kung kayo ay nagsisimba every sunday lalo na itong buwan ng July, dalawang linggo na ang ebanghelyong pinagnilayan natin ay tungkol sa parables.
Ngayong araw na ito ng 17th Sunday in Ordinary time, July 24, 2011, ang Ebanghelyo (Matthew 13:44-52) natin ngayon ay tungkol sa parable. Actually tatlong parable ang pinag-uusapan ngayon dito, the parable of the hidden treasure, the parable of the pearl and the parable of the net.
Kung titignan natin ang ating sarili, ALIN BA SA TATLONG PARABLE NA ITO ANG MAAARING MAKA-RELATE SA BUHAY NATIN?
The Parable of the Net.
Ang sabi ni Hesus dito,
Tayong lahat ay tinawag ng panginoon, tinipon niya tayo sa isang komunidad upang tayo ay makibahagi sa kaluwalhatian ng diyos. Kaya tayo nasa simbahan, naging miyembro tayo ng iba’t-ibang organisasyon, nasa religious order tayo gaya ng DOMINICAN ORDER ay sapagkat may plano ang diyos para sa atin. Kaya niya tayo tinawag na maging kabahagi sa kanyang simbahan ay sapagkat gusto ng diyos na MABAGO ANG BUHAY NATIN.
Pero alam niyo ba kahit nasa community tayo, kahit nasa simbahan na tayo, hindi lahat ng taong simbahan ay mga mabubuti,
MAY MGA TAONG SIMBAHAN DIYAN NA CHISMOSA! WALANG HIYA! SINUNGALING! PALAMURA! PLASTIK! MAGNANAKAW! MALDITO AT MALDITA!!
MAY MGA TAONG SIMBAHAN DIYAN NA HANGGANG NGAYON AY HINDI PA RIN NAGBABAGO ANG UGALI!
Ang Sabi nga ni Hesus dito,
EH KAHIT NASA COMMUNITY NA KAYO, KUNG WALA NAMAN PAGBABAGO SA BUHAY NINYO!
KUNG HINDI NAMAN KAYO NAMUMUNGA EH MABUTI PANG ITIWALAG NA LANG KAYO!
KATULAD NA LANG NG MGA CONGRESSMAN AT SENADOR DIYAN NA PABOR SA RH BILL AT DIVORCE BILL!!!!

Kaya ito ang sinasabi ni Hesus sa atin ngayon,

KUNG HINDI KA NAMAN NAGPAPAKATINO DERETSO KA PA RIN SA IMPIYERNO!
ALIN BA ANG PIPILIIN NATIN?

WHO ARE THE LAY DOMINICANS?
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)
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”.
