A Gospel Reflection on the 20th Sunday in Ordinary time, August 14, 2011.

Alam ninyo sa Charismatic group ay meron iba’t-ibang ministry gaya ng Worship, Education, Service, Youth at Healing Ministry. Ang Pinaka-highlight sa mga gatherings ng Charismatic ay Healing. Hindi natatapos ang pagtitipon ng mga miyembro ng  Charismatic group kung wala ang healing. Sa panahon natin ngayon ay marami ang nangangailangan ng kagalingan. Kaya tayo pumupunta sa mga healing sessions, nagtiyatiyagang pumila para mahipo tayo ng mga healing priest ay sapagkat kailangan natin ang kagalingan.

Dito sa Ebanghelyo (Matthew 15:21-28) na ating binasa ngayong araw na ito ng 20th Sunday in Ordinary time, August 14, 2011, ay nakita natin ang isang babae na sumisigaw at nagmamakaawa sa panginoon. Nagmamakaawa siya ay sapagkat gustong gumaling ang kanyang anak. Kaya dahil sa pagtiyatiyagang pagsusumamo ng babaeng ito kay Hesus ay dininig ni Hesus ang sigaw ng babaeng ito.

ANO ANG SINABI NI HESUS?

“NAPAKALAKI NG IYONG PANANAMPALATAYA! MANGYAYARI ANG HINIHILING MO.”

Sa ating pagdalo sa Misa ay patuloy tayong tumatawag sa panginoon upang humingi ng kagalingan. Everytime na tayo ay nagsisimba at dumadalo sa misa, tayong lahat ay pinagagaling ng panginoon. When we received the body and blood of christ in the Eucharist, we received the sacrament of healing. Ang importante po sa pagtawag natin sa panginoon ay meron tayong pagtiyatiyaga. Kapag tayo ay matiyaga sa ating panalangin, kapag narindi ang tenga ng panginoon sa kahihingi natin sa kanya ay dun na niya ibibigay ang ating mga kahilingan.

Nung ako ay nag-aral sa catholic Renewal Institute that was in the year 2007. Kumuha ako ng kursong Lay Evangelization ng isang taon. Nung ako ay nag-enroll na nakiusap ako sa Dean ng eskwelahan kung pwedeng study now pay later or magbabayad ako ng installment. Eh ang sagot sa akin ng Dean ng eskwelahan na iyon ay pwede naman akong magbayad ng installment. Nung nag-uumpisa na ang aming klase ay nagdasal ako ng rosaryo sa Birhen ng La Naval dun sa Santo Domingo Church at paulit-ulit kong itinataas sa Birhen ng La naval ang aking kahilingan na sana ay may sumagot sa aking tuition fee. Ilang buwan matapos magsimula ang aming klase noon, minsan nagkaroon ng Mariology Congress doon sa Angelicum College sa likod ng Santo Domingo Church, dun sa pagtitipon na iyon ay nagkita kami ng mga dati kong kaklase, nagkamustahan, nagkuwentuhan. Nung matapos ang buong araw na iyon ng Mariology Congress ay naghiwahiwalay na kami ng mga dati kong kaklase, sila ay palabas na ng Santo Domingo Church at ako naman ay naiwan sa loob ng santo Domingo Church. Hindi pa sila nakakalabas sa pinto ng santo Domingo Church nang bigla nila akong binalikan at tinanong nila ako,

“MAGKANO PA BA ANG KULANG SA TUITION FEE MO?”

Nagulat ako sa tanong nila, ang sabi ko P6,000 pa po. Sa madaling salita ay sila na ang sumagot sa tuition fee ko, inabot nila sa akin ang pera at yun ang pinambayad ko sa aking tuition fee sa eskwelahang pinasukan ko. Just imagine hindi ako nagsasalita sa kanila tungkol sa problema ko sa pera at sa pambayad ko sa tuition fee, pero mismo ang Birhen ng La Naval doon sa Santo Domingo Church ay siyang kumilos para ibigay ang kahilingan ko. Ginamit ng Birhen ng La Naval ang aking mga kaklase para maging instrumento ng kanyang biyaya. Kaya kapag ako ay nagdarasal ng rosaryo sa birhen ng La Naval, hindi lamang sa personal kong kahilingan kundi maging sa mga kahilingan ng mga kaibigan ko na humihingi sa akin ng prayer request, lagi ko kayong inaalala sa aking pagdarasal ng Rosaryo sa harapan ng Imahen ng Our Lady of the Rosary of La Naval doon sa Santo Domingo Church. Sa totoo lang, ang Birhen ng La Naval doon sa Santo Domingo Church ay naririndi na ang kanyang tenga sa kakukulit ko sa kanya kaya ibinibigay niya ang aking mga kahilingan at ang mga kahilingan ninyo. Ngayon ako ay nangungulit na naman sa Birhen ng La Naval doon sa Santo Domingo Church sapagkat sa mga panahong ito ako ay naghahanda para sa pagkuha ko ng exam sa October 23, 2011 para mag-aral ng college at nag-apply ng scholarship kay congresswoman Trisha Bonoan ng Sampaloc, Manila. Ipagdasal niyo rin ako na sana ako ay makapasa sa exam na ito.

ANO ANG MAGIGING TUGON NATIN SA EBANGHELYO NGAYON?

Magkaroon tayo ng pagtiyatiyaga

sa panalangin at ituon ang ating pananalig sa diyos. Kailangan palakasin ang ating pananampalataya at patuloy tayong kumapit sa diyos at sa BIRHEN NG SANTO ROSARYO NG LA NAVAL DE MANILA doon sa SANTO DOMINGO CHURCH SA QUEZON CITY.

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”.
