ANG TUNAY NA KALIGAYAHAN AY ANG PAGSUNOD SA KALOOBAN NG DIYOS.

A Gospel Reflection on the 26th Sunday in Ordinary time, September 25, 2011.

Marami sa atin ngayon ay naghahanap ng kaligayahan sa buhay.

ANONG KLASENG KALIGAYAHAN ANG HINAHANAP NINYO?

Manalo sa lotto, magkaroon ng trabaho at mataas na sahod, magkaroon ng sariling bahay at lupa at iba pa. Iyan ang mga klaseng kaligayahan na hinahanap ng tao ngayon.

Ang tunay na kaligayahan ay makikita natin dito sa Ebanghelyo (Matthew 21: 28-32)  ngayong araw na ito ng 26th Sunday in Ordinary time, September 25, 2011. Ang Ebanghelyo natin ngayon ay tungkol sa dalawang anak. Ang Panganay na anak nung una ay tumanggi sa alok ng ama na magtrabaho sa kanyang ubasan pero sa bandang huli ay nagbago ang kanyang isip at nagtrabaho sa ubasan ng kanyang ama. Ang Pangalawang anak naman ay tumugon sa alok ng ama na magtrabaho sa kanyang ubasan ngunit hindi naman siya nagpunta roon. Nakita natin dito yung panganay na anak ay sumunod sa kagustuhan ng ama.

Alam ninyo kung tayo ay susunod ay gaganda ang buhay natin.

KAYA HINDI MAGANDA ANG TAKBO NG BUHAY NATIN AY SAPAGKAT HINDI TAYO SUMUSUNOD SA KAGUSTUHAN NG DIYOS!!!!!!!!!

Aminin ko sa inyo, hindi rin naging maganda ang takbo ng buhay ko dahil pinairal ko rin ang katigasan ng aking ulo. Dahil sa katigasan ng aking ulo at sariling kagustuhan ko ang masunod ay WALANG NANGYARI SA BUHAY KO. Marami na akong pinagdaanan na mga pagsubok sa buhay ko.

Sa totoo lang ay PAGUUUUUUD NA PAGOD NA AKO!!!!!!

PAGUD NA PAGOD NA AKO SA GANITONG BUHAY!

Kaya ngayon ay tinatanggap ko na ang kalooban ng diyos para sa akin. Sa mga panahong ito ay pinaghahandaan ko na ang kalooban ng diyos para sa akin. Sa ilang taon na akong naging

Lay Dominican doon sa Santo Domingo Church

ay nadiskubre ko na may mas magandang plano ang diyos para sa akin. Tinatawag ako ng diyos na mas mataas pa sa pagiging

Dominican Tertiary. Kaya ito na ngayon ang dinidiscern ko sa aking buhay. Dahil tinanggap ko na ang plano ng diyos para sa akin ay naging maluwag ang aking kalooban, naramdaman ko ang saya sa aking buhay.

Anumang oras ay handa na akong sumunod sa kalooban ng diyos at handa ko

nang tuparin ang kanyang plano para sa akin.

KAYO, KAILAN PA BA KAYONG SUSUNOD SA KAGUSTUHAN NG DIYOS?

HABANG BATA PA KAYO AY SUMUNOD NA KAYO KUNG ANO ANG NAIS IPAGAWA NG DIYOS PARA SA IYO,

KINAKAILANGAN MAGKAROON KA NG DISCERNMENT SA IYONG BUHAY.

MARAMI NA NGANG BIYAYA ANG LUMALAPIT SA IYO PERO IKAW MISMO AY AYAW MO PANG TUMUGON!

LAGI MO DINADAHILAN NA BUSY KA KUNO SA IYONG PAROKYA!

KESO BUSY KA SA IYONG TEATRO!

OH!

TAPOS SASABIHIN MO AT THE AGE OF 25 SAKA KA PA LANG SASALI SA LECTORS AND COMMENTATORS GROUP SA IYONG PAROKYA!

BAKIT KINAKAILANGAN MO PANG HINTAYIN ANG 25 YEARS OLD BAGO KA TULUYANG MAGLINGKOD SA SIMBAHAN?!

ANG DAMI MO NANG SINAYANG NA PAGKAKATAON AT PANAHON!

KAILAN KA PA MAGLILINGKOD SA DIYOS?!

KAPAG MAYSAKIT KA NA AT HINDI KA NA MAKALAKAD!

DAPAT NGAYON KA NA TUMUGON SA TAWAG NG DIYOS,

DAPAT NGAYON KA NA MAGLINGKOD SA DIYOS AT SA SIMBAHAN,

HABANG NABUBUHAY KA PA SA MUNDONG ITO AY SAMANTALAHIN MO NA ANG PAGKAKATAON NA SUMUNOD SA KALOOBAN NG DIYOS.

Alam ninyo may isa kaming Dominican Priest doon sa Santo Domingo Church at the age of 76 ay naordinahan siyang pari kamakailan lang dun sa Santo Domingo Church. Siya ay isang Canadian Citizen. Bago siya pumasok sa Dominican Order siya ay nagtrabaho muna bilang Canadian Ambassador sa Vatican. Just imagine sa ganyang edad ay pumasok siya sa pagpapari at pinili niyang maglingkod sa diyos kahit sa huling sandali ng kanyang buhay.

Sana tayo din habang malakas pa tayo, habang may pagkakataon pa sa buhay natin ay sumunod na tayo sa kagustuhan ng diyos at gawin natin kung ano ang ninanais ng diyos para sa atin. HUWAG NATIN SAYANGIN ANG BUHAY NATIN SA MGA WALANG KWENTANG BAGAY.

ANG TUNAY NA KALIGAYAHAN AY ANG PAGSUNOD SA KALOOBAN NG DIYOS AT PAGTUGON NATIN SA KANYANG TAWAG.

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”.
