TALENTADONG PINOY.

A Gospel Reflection on the 33rd Sunday in Ordinary time, November 13, 2011.

Dominican Province of the Philippines

SINO SA INYO ANG NANONOOD SA TELEBISYON NA ANG PALABAS AY TALENTADONG PINOY AT PILIPINO GOT TALENT?

Correct me if i am wrong.

Anyway, ang ilan sa inyo ay nanonood nito. Dun sa palabas na iyon ay nakita natin na ang mga contestant ay may kanya-kanyang talento. Meron sa kanila ay magaling kumanta, magaling sumayaw, magaling umarte. Nadiskubre natin na sila ay mga talentado at may kakayahan sa ganitong bagay. Bawat tao ay iba’t-ibang talento na ipinagkaloob ng diyos. Meron sa atin ay marunong at masarap magluto ng pagkain. Meron sa atin ay magaling magpahayag at magpaliwanag tungkol sa bibliya. Meron sa atin ay magaling mag-alaga at mag-aruga sa mga maysakit. Ang mga Doktor at Nurses ay sila ang nanggagamot at nag-aalaga sa mga maysakit at sila ay nagbibigay ng kagalingan sa mga maysakit. Meron din sa atin ay marunong kumanta at sumayaw.

ABA EH KUNG MARUNONG KA PALANG SUMAYAW AT KUMANTA AT UMARTE AY SUMALI KA SA TALENTADONG PINOY O KAYA MAG-AUDITION KA SA ABS-CBN PARA SUMALI KA SA PINOY BIG BROTHER,

MALAY NINYO DIYAN PA KAYO MA-DISKUBRE AT MAGING ARTISTA PA KAYO BALANG ARAW,

HEHEHE!!!

Kaya alam ninyo yang mga talento ninyong iyan ay hindi iyan galing sa sarili ninyong kakayahan, yang mga talento ninyong iyan ay galing sa diyos.

Dito sa Ebanghelyong (Matthew 25:14-15,19-21) binasa natin ngayong araw na ito ng 33rd Sunday in Ordinary time, November 13, 2011, nakita natin dito yung mga alipin na ipinagkatiwala sa kanila ng panginoon ang limanlibong piso, ang isa nama’y dalawanlibong piso, at ang isa’y sanlibong piso. Itong mga alipin na ito ay magaling magpatubo ng pera. Sa larangan ng negosyo, ang mga negosyante ay kailangan may tutubuin, kinakailangan ay marunong magpatakbo ng negosyo, magaling humawak ng pera. Kaya alam ninyo mahirap maging cashier, accountant, treasurer at auditor. Kapag pera ang pinag-uusapan ay diyan sumasakit ang ulo nila. Pero in-fairness kahit ganyan kahirap ang trabaho nila ay nagagampanan nila ang kanilang tungkulin at nagiging tapat sila sa kanilang trabaho.

Alam ninyo nung ako ay nagtatrabaho pa diyan sa Combat Zone Computer Rental sa tapat ng Metropolitan Hospital, pinagdaanan ko rin ang ganyang klaseng trabaho, ang maging cashier. Siyempre alam ninyo naman sa isang Computer Shop ay around ako doon, nagbabantay, encoder at the same time, cashier. Kaya alam ninyo pagkatapos ng buong araw ng pagtatrabaho ay aayusin ko ang mga sales nung araw na iyon, kung magkano ba ang kita ng shop nung araw na iyon, kung tugma ba ang total sales sa perang hawak ko. Minsan nakaka-encounter din ako ng mga problema, pero itong mga problemang ito ay nalulusutan din at nagagawa ng paraan.

KUNG MA-ABILIDAD KA AT KAYA MONG PANGALAGAAN ANG NEGOSYONG PINAPATAKBO MO AY MALALAMPASAN MO ANG MGA PROBLEMANG IYAN AT KAYA MONG PATAKBUHIN AT PALAKASIN ANG IYONG NEGOSYO AT KAYA MONG ILIGTAS ITO SA KAHIHIYAN.

Ako kahit hindi ako marunong sa math ay marunong akong humawak at mag-ingat ng pera lalo na kung ito ay pera ng kumpanya o pera ng anumang samahan. Kahit hindi ako marunong sa math ay may tiwala pa rin sa akin ang aking boss na mamahala ng isang computer shop at maging tagapag-ingat ng pera ng kumpanya.

Ang Panginoon ay patuloy na nagtitiwala sa atin. Anumang bagay ay ibinibigay niya sa atin ay sapagkat alam ng diyos na KAYA NATIN ITO, MAGAGAMPANAN NATIN ANG TUNGKULING ITO.

HUWAG MONG SASABIHIN NA HINDI MO KAYA IYAN!

HINDI MO MAGAGAWA IYAN!

MAGAGAWA MO IYAN KAPATID,

HUMINGI KA NG TULONG SA DIYOS AT TUTULUNGAN KA NIYANG MAGAGAWA MO ANG MGA BAGAY NA IYAN.

Binibigyan tayo ng Panginoon ng kakayahan at karunungan.

WALA SA ATIN ANG INUTIL AT WALANG SILBI.

Kaya habang nandito pa tayo sa mundong ito ay magkaroon tayo ng silbi at maging kapaki-pakinabang tayo sa lipunan. Kapag tayo ay namatay na at humarap sa panginoon, tatanungin ng panginoon sa atin,

“IKAW SAAN MO GINAMIT ANG TALENTONG IPINAGKALOOB KO SA IYO?”

Anuman ang talentong ipinagkaloob sa atin ng panginoon ay pagyamanin at palaguin natin ito dahil ito ang isasagot natin sa panginoon.

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”.
