DOMINICANS IN MISSION TOGETHER.

A Gospel Reflection on the 19th Sunday in Ordinary time, August 7, 2011.

THAT WE MAY BE ONE. (DOMNET Themesong)

Ang  salitang MISYON, ibig sabihin ay SUGO o LAYUNIN. Ang Salitang MISYONERO naman ibig sabihin ay ALAGAD NG SIMBAHAN NA GUMAGANAP NG MISYON.  Si Santo Domingo de Guzman ay sugo ng diyos. Isinugo siya ng diyos para ipangaral sa atin ang salita ng diyos at ipakilala sa atin si Kristo. Ang Pangangaral ng salita ng diyos ay ipinagkatiwala kay Santo Domingo at sa lahat ng mga taga-sunod ni Santo Domingo De Guzman na tinatawag na Dominican Order. Ang DOMINICAN ORDER o ORDER OF PREACHERS ay itinatag ni Santo Domingo De Guzman. Itinatag niya ito ay para labanan at wakasan ang kasamaan dito sa mundo sa pamamagitan ng pangangaral ng salita ng diyos. Mula sa panahon ni Santo Domingo hanggang sa panahon natin ngayon ay patuloy pa rin  ang pangangaral ng salita ng diyos, lahat ng mga nasimulan ni Santo Domingo, lahat ng mga ginawa ni Santo Domingo ay ipinagpapatuloy ngayon ng mga Dominikano. Kaya kahit nasa langit na si Santo Domingo ay buhay pa rin dito sa lupa ang kanyang mga alaala, buhay pa rin ang kanyang mga ginawa dito sa lupa. Buhat nung namatay si Santo Domingo De Guzman ay mas dumami pa ang pumasok sa Dominican Order, mas lumaki pa ang pamilya ng Dominican Order.

Sa panahon natin ngayon ang Dominican Order ay binubuo ng Dominican Priest, Dominican Brother, Dominican Nun, Dominican Sister, Dominican Tertiary at Secular Dominican. Sila ay nagsasama-sama sa iisang misyon – ang IPANGARAL ANG SALITA NG DIYOS. Ang mga Dominikano ay nagsasama-sama at nagkakaisa para sa kaluwalhatian ng diyos. Sa panahon natin ngayon ay marami sa inyo ang naliligaw ng landas, hindi pa nakakakilala kay kristo, hindi pa naririnig ang salita ng diyos, uhaw sa katotohanan ng salita ng diyos. Kaya ang panginoon ay patuloy na tumatawag sa atin para tayo ay maging Dominikano. Sapagkat kung tayo ay maging Dominikano, tayo ngayon ang magpapalaganap at magpapahayag ng salita ng diyos.

Ito ngayon ang sinasabi ni Hesus dito sa ating Ebanghelyo (Matthew 14:22-23) ngayong araw na ito ng 19th Sunday in Ordinary time, August 7, 2011,

“HUWAG KAYONG MATAKOT!”

HUWAG TAYONG MATAKOT NA SUMUNOD KAY HESUS,

HUWAG TAYONG MATAKOT NA PUMUNTA SA APAT NA SULOK NG DAIGDIG PARA IPALAGANAP ANG EBANGHELYO,

HUWAG TAYONG MATAKOT NA MAGSABI NG KATOTOHANAN AT ISIGAW SA BUONG MUNDO ANG PANGALAN NI HESUS!

KAYA MARAMI SA INYO AY HINDI TUMUTUGON SA TAWAG NG DIYOS AY SAPAGKAT NANGINGIBABAW SA INYO ANG TAKOT!!!!!!!!!

ANO ANG KINATATAKUTAN NINYO SA PAGSUNOD KAY KRISTO?!!!!!!!

ANO ANG KINATATAKUTAN NINYO SA PAKIKIISA SA MISYON NG SIMBAHAN?!!!!!!!

HUWAG MONG ISIPIN NA HINDI MO KAYA IYAN!

HUWAG MONG SABIHIN NA HINDI MO MAGAGAWA ANG BAGAY NA IYAN!

HINDI KA TATAWAGIN NG DIYOS KUNG HINDI MO KAYA ANG BAGAY NA IYAN!

ALAM MO SA SARILI MO NA KAYA MO IYAN!

KAYA SINASABI MO NA HINDI MO KAYA IYAN AY SAPAGKAT NATATAKOT KA!

HUWAG KA NANG MATAKOT KAPATID!

KUNG ANO MAN ANG INAALALA MO SA BUHAY MO,

ANO MAN ANG KINATATAKUTAN MO SA BUHAY,

SI LORD ANG BAHALA SA IYO,

TATANGGALIN NG PANGINOON ANG MGA AGAM-AGAM AT TAKOT SA IYONG BUHAY!

KUNG ANO MAN ANG KAHINAAN MO AY TUTULUNGAN KA NG PANGINOON,

KUNG ANO MAN ANG PAGKUKULANG MO AY PUPUNUIN IYAN NG PANGINOON.

Tayong lahat ay tinatawag ng Panginoon. Kung tinatawag niya tayo at kung tayo ay karapat-dapat sa misyong ibibigay niya sa atin ay tutulungan niya tayo. Hindi niya tayo pababayaan ay sapagkat yun ang plano ng diyos para sa atin. Ang Mahalaga ay TUMUGON TAYO SA TAWAG NG DIYOS.

Ang Buwan ng Agosto ay buwan ng DOMINICAN MISSION. Sa pagkakataong ito ay pinalalakas ang Dominican Vocation at hinihikayat ang mga kabataan na maging Dominikano gaya ng Pagpapari, pagiging Brother, pagiging Mongha, Pagmamadre, pagiging Tertiary at Consecrated Life.

ANO BA ANG GINAGAWA NG DOMINICAN ORDER?

Gaya ng paulit-ulit na sinasabi ko sa inyo, ang tungkulin ng Dominican Order ay tumulong sa pagliligtas ng mga kaluluwa sa pamamagitan ng pangangaral ng salita ng diyos. At isa sa pinakamagandang katangian ng Dominican Order ay ang pagiging mapagmahal at malapit sa Mahal na Birheng Maria. Kaya ang mga Dominikano doon sa Santo Domingo Church ay patuloy na binabantayan, inaalagaan at pine-preserved ang imahen ng Our Lady of the Rosary of La Naval. Kaya nga ako pumasok sa Dominican Order doon sa Santo Domingo Church, kaya ako naging Dominican Tertiary ay dahil sa pagmamahal ko sa Birhen ng Santo Rosaryo ng La Naval doon sa Santo Domingo Church. Ang Birhen ng La Naval ay siyang nagbibigay sa akin ng inspirasyon para ipangaral ang salita ng diyos at mapalakas ang aking Dominican Vocation doon sa Santo Domingo Church. Kaya ang pagdedebosyon ko sa Birhen ng Santo Rosaryo ng La naval ay siyang ugat at pundasyon ng aking Dominican Vocation.

Kung ikaw ay tinatawag na maging Dominikano at nakikita mo ang iyong sarili sa pagiging Dominikano, TARA NA, SUMAMA KA NA at IKAW AY MAPABILANG SA PAMILYA NG DOMINICAN ORDER DOON SA SANTO DOMINGO CHURCH SA QUEZON CITY.

THAT WE MAY BE ONE. (DOMNET Themesong)

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”.
