SHOWBIZ: I-TSISMIS SI KRISTO.
A Gospel Reflection on the 6th Sunday in Ordinary time, February 12, 2012.
Dominican Province of the Philippines
Sa panahon natin ngayon ay maraming mga tsismoso at tsismosa. Kahit saan ka magpunta ay maraming mga tsismosa at tsismoso, pinag-uusapan ang buhay ng ibang tao. Kahit sa Telebisyon sa iba’t-ibang mga channels at programa ay naroon ang mga tsismosa at tsismoso, ang mga intriguero at intriguera, pinag-uusapan nila ang buhay ng mga artista,
Ultimong pribadong buhay ng mga artista ay sinisilip pa nila.
BAKIT KELANGAN IBUNYAG NINYO PA ANG PRIBADONG BUHAY NG MGA ARTISTA?
SA TOTOO LANG AKO,
KAPAG MAY NAE-ENCOUNTER AKONG MGA TSISMOSA AY NABUBUWISIT AKO,
MAS NABUBUWISIT AKO KAPAG TINATANONG ANG TUNGKOL SA BUHAY KO, YUNG PRIVATE LIFE KO, YUNG SOCIAL LIFE KO.
ANO ANG PAKIALAM NINYO SA BUHAY KO?!
BUHAY NANG MAY BUHAY AY PINAKIKIALAMAN NINYO!
HINDI KUMPLETO ANG ARAW NINYO KAPAG HINDI NINYO PINAG-UUSAPAN ANG BUHAY NG IBANG TAO!
NAKAKAINIS YUNG GANUNG TAONG MGA TSISMOSA AT WALANG MAGAWA SA BUHAY!
KAYA AKO AY INIIWASAN KO ANG MGA GANITONG KLASENG TAO.
Tulad ng isang ketongin dito sa Ebanghelyo (Mark 1:40-45) natin ngayong araw na ito ng 6th Sunday in Ordinary time, February 12, 2012, lumapit siya kay Hesus ay para humingi ng kagalingan at mawala ang ketong sa kanyang katawan. Alam nating lahat na ang ketong ay nakakadiri at pinandidirihan natin ang taong may ketong.
Kaya nung gumaling ang ketongin na ito ay mahigpit siyang binilinan ni Hesus na huwag sabihin kaninuman na siya ay pinagaling ni Hesus. Dahil hindi makontrol ang dila ng taong ito dahil sa siya ay pinagaling ni Hesus ay lalo pa niyang ipinagkalat at tsinismis sa mga tao ang tungkol sa ginawa ni Hesus.
Ito ang misyon natin sa mundong ito na ITSISMIS NATIN SI KRISTO, IPAGKALAT NATIN SA MGA TAO NA SI HESUS AY MAPAGMAHAL NA DIYOS AT NAGPAPAGALING SA MGA MAYSAKIT. Kaya kung patuloy natin itsitsismis si Hesus ay tiyak na maraming tao ang MAGBABALIK-LOOB SA DIYOS.

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”.
