TAYO ANG SIMBAHAN.
Kapag narinig ninyo ang salitang SIMBAHAN, ANO ANG PUMAPASOK SA ISIP NINYO?
KAYA TAYO TINAWAG NA SIMBAHAN AY SAPAGKAT TAYONG LAHAT AY MGA BINYAGANG KATOLIKO.
DAHIL TAYO AY BININYAGAN, KABILANG TAYO NGAYON SA PAMILYA NG DIYOS SA PAMAMAGITAN NG SIMBAHAN.
AND WE ARE THE MEMBERS OF THE MYSTICAL BODY OF CHRIST, WHICH IS THE CHURCH.
Dito sa Ebanghelyong (Matthew 16:13-20) binasa natin ngayong araw na ito ng 21st Sunday in Ordinary time, August 21, 2011, itinatag ni Hesus ang Simbahan. Itinatag ni Hesus ang simbahan sa pamamagitan ni Pedro. Si Pedro ay pinili ni Hesus upang maging pinuno ng ating simbahan at siya ang kauna-unahang Santo Papa ng Simbahang Katoliko.
The significant of KEY is the AUTHORITY.
In our Gospel reading, Jesus said to Peter,
Ipinagkaloob ni Hesus ang kapangyarihan kay Pedro para mamuno sa ating simbahan. Bilang isang pinuno ng simbahan ay may karapatan at kapangyarihan ang papa na magsalita at ituro ang tama sa mga tao. Sa isyu ng moral, ang simbahan ay kinakailangan magsalita at gabayan ang mga tao patungo sa tamang landas.
ANO NGAYON ANG MAGIGING TUGON NATIN DITO?
Bilang isang katoliko at mananampalataya kay Kristo ay kinakailangan nating makinig at sumunod sa mga church authority gaya ng Papa, Cardinal, Obispo, Pari at iba pa. Remember ang Papa ay siyang kinatawan ni Kristo dito sa lupa. Kapag nagsalita ang papa ay HINDI SIYA MAAARING MAGKAMALI. Kaya ito ang dapat nating gawin, ang makinig at sumunod.
ANG SIMBAHAN NATIN SA PANAHON NGAYON AY NAHAHARAP SA MATINDING PAGSUBOK.
NANDIYAN ANG PAGBABATIKOS SA SANTO PAPA AT SA ILANG MGA LIDER NG ATING SIMBAHAN.

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”.
