GIVING TIME, TALENT AND TREASURE TO THE LORD.
A Gospel Reflection on the 29th Sunday in Ordinary time, October 16, 2011.
Dominican Province of the Philippines
Marahil ang ilan sa atin ay naglilingkod sa simbahan.
ANONG KLASENG PAGLILINGKOD ANG GINAGAWA NATIN?
Gaya ng pagsali ninyo sa Parish Mandated Organization o iba’t-ibang ministry ng inyong parokya, ang iba diyan ay nakikilahok sa mga Social Services ng parokya, ang iba rin diyan ay tumutulong o nagbibigay ng suporta sa mga proyekto ng simbahan. Halimbawa na lang po doon sa Santo Domingo Church sa Quezon City, kasalukuyang inaayos ang aming pipe organ doon, inaayos ito ay para mapaganda at maibalik ang sigla ng musical sounds or instruments, hindi lang iyan, kasalukuyang din inaayos ang ilang mga stained glass window doon sa Santo Domingo Church.
KUNG KAYO AY MGA DEBOTO NG MAHAL NA BIRHEN NG SANTO ROSARYO NG LA NAVAL DOON SA SANTO DOMINGO CHURCH,
KUNG KAYO AY TUNAY NA NAGMAMAHAL KAY MARIA – ANG REYNA NG SANTO ROSARYO NG LA NAVAL DOON SA SANTO DOMINGO CHURCH AY IPAKITA NINYO,
PATUNAYAN NINYO NA MAHAL NINYO ANG BIRHEN NG LA NAVAL SA PAMAMAGITAN NG PAGBIBIGAY NG SUPORTA SA ANUMANG PROYEKTO NG SANTO DOMINGO CHURCH UPANG MAPANATILING MAGANDA AT MAAYOS ANG TAHANAN NG BIRHEN NG LA NAVAL – ANG SANTO DOMINGO CHURCH DIYAN SA QUEZON CITY.
Ang Ebanghelyong binasa natin ngayon ay tungkol sa priority at obligasyon sa buhay. Tayong mga mamamayang pilipino ay obligasyon nating magbayad ng tamang buwis, obligasyon nating bayaran ang mga ahensya na nagbibigay sa atin ng serbisyo.
Ganun din sa panginoon,
ANG PANGINOON AY PATULOY NIYANG IBINUBUHOS ANG KANYANG PAGMAMAHAL SA ATIN,
SOBRA-SOBRANG PAGMAMAHAL AT BIYAYA NA IPINAGKAKALOOB NIYA SA ATIN.
SO ANO NGAYON ANG DAPAT NATING GAWIN BILANG ISANG KRISTYANO?
ANG IBALIK SA PANGINOON ANG MGA BIYAYANG TINANGGAP NATIN.
Sa madaling salita ay SUKLIAN NATIN ANG PANGINOON SA MGA BIYAYANG IPINAGKAKALOOB NIYA SA ATIN.
Nitong nakaraang Linggo, October 9, 2011 ay ipinagdiwang natin ang Dakilang Kapistahan ng MAHAL NA BIRHEN NG SANTO ROSARYO NG LA NAVAL DE MANILA doon sa SANTO DOMINGO CHURCH sa Quezon City. Alam ninyo kaming mga Dominikano doon sa Santo Domingo Church ay natakot kami nung mga oras na iyon dahil bago magsimula ang prusisyon ng La Naval ay bumuhos ng malakas na ulan at nagkaroon pa ng baha sa mga lugar na daraanan ng prusisyon at maging sa paligid ng Santo Domingo Church. Pero sa kabila ng malakas na ulan at pagbaha sa paligid ng Santo Domingo Church ay ipinakita pa rin ng mga tao ang pagmamahal sa Birhen ng Santo Rosaryo ng La Naval de Manila. At marami pa rin ang sumama sa prusisyon ng La Naval doon sa Santo Domingo Church.
UMULAN MAN O UMARAW AY TULOY PA RIN ANG PRUSISYON NG LA NAVAL DOON SA SANTO DOMINGO CHURCH,
TULOY PA RIN ANG PAGDAGSA NG MGA LIBU-LIBONG DEBOTO NG LA NAVAL UPANG MAKIISA SA PAGDIRIWANG NG LA NAVAL AT IPAKITA ANG PAGMAMAHAL KAY MARIA – ANG INA NG SANTO ROSARYO NG LA NAVAL DOON SA SANTO DOMINGO CHURCH SA QUEZON CITY.
Ang sabi nga ng aking kaibigan na miyembro ng Rosarian Youth Movement diyan sa Archdiocese of Manila na si Mr Art Reynold Drueco,
“RAIN OR SHINE, 100 % AY SIGURADONG SASAMA AKO SA PRUSISYON NG LA NAVAL.”
Taun-taon ay ipinagdiriwang natin ang Kapistahan ng La Naval every Second Sunday of October doon sa Santo Domingo Church,
UMULAN MAN O UMARAW AY TULOY PA RIN ANG PRUSISYON NG LA NAVAL.
HUWAG KAYONG MATAKOT NA SUMAMA SA PRUSISYON NG LA NAVAL DOON SA SANTO DOMINGO CHURCH KAHIT UMUULAN AT BUMABAHA.
ANG PROBLEMA KASI NG ILAN SA INYO AY MASYADO KAYONG MGA DUWAG!!!!!!!!!!!

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”.
