THE HERO.

A Gospel Reflection on the  Solemnity of the Lord’s Resurrection, Easter Sunday, April 8, 2012.

Dominican Province of the Philippines

Kung babalikan natin ang kasaysayan ng ating bansa ay marami tayong kinikilalang mga bayani. Halimbawa na lang po, ang ating Pambansang Bayani na si Jose Rizal. Nandiyan din sina Andres Sonifacio, Apolinario Mabini at iba pang mga bayani.

BAKIT SILA TINAWAG NA MGA BAYANI?

Sapagkat sila ay nagbuwis ng buhay para sa ating bayan. At sa panahong ito ay marami tayong kinikilalang mga bayani gaya ng mga OFW. Kapag oras ng kalamidad gaya ng pagbaha ay maraming naglalabasan na mga matatawag din nating bayani.

Naalala ko tuloy noong typhoon Ondoy halos nalubog sa tubig baha ang buong Metro Manila, ultimong mga artista ay nagsilbi rin na bayani sapagkat iniligtas nila ang kanilang kapitbahay. At sa kasaysayan din ng ating simbahan ay marami rin mga bayani na nagbuwis ng kanilang buhay dahil sa pangangaral ng ebanghelyo at pagtatanggol sa ating simbahan gaya nina San Juan Bautista, San Pedro at San Pablo at iba pang mga Apostoles, sina San Lorenzo Ruiz at mga kasamahan niyang martir, San Pedro Verona at iba pang mga Santo at Santa.

Sa araw na ito ng Linggo ng Pagkabuhay, April 8, 2012 ay may isang bayani na ating ipinagdiriwang sa araw na ito, ang bayaning ito ay nag-alay ng kanyang buhayhttps://i2.wp.com/a1.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/s320x320/421499_2615681482877_1580283005_31795233_845485299_n.jpg para sa ikatutubos ng ating mga kasalanan at sa pagliligtas ng mundo, ang bayaning ito ay namatay noong Biyernes Santo sa pamamagitan ng pagpapako sa krus at sa araw na itohttps://i1.wp.com/photos-d.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/320811_1981173620577_1580283005_31539332_1896586123_a.jpg siya ay muling nabuhay. Ang Bayani na ating bida sa araw na ito ay walang iba kundi si Hesus.

NASUSULAT SA BANAL NA KASULATAN NA SI HESUShttps://i0.wp.com/photos-a.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/390574_2052894213547_1580283005_31590184_1751051238_a.jpg AY MAMAMATAY AT SA IKATLONG ARAW SIYA AY MABUBUHAY NA MAGULI.

Dito sa Ebanghelyo (John 20:1-9) natin ngayon, ang bida dito ay si https://i0.wp.com/photos-g.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/166945_2389193300814_1580283005_31719185_2002531100_a.jpgMaria Magdalena.

BAKIT?

Sapagkat siya ang unang nagbalita sa mga alagad na WALA NA SI HESUS SA LIBINGAN.

Ang pagkasabi pa ni Maria Magdalena dito,

“MAY KUMUHA SA PANGINOON MULA SA LIBINGAN AT HINDI NAMIN ALAM KUNG SAAN SIYA INILAGAY.”

NAKAKALUNGKOT SAPAGKAT HINDI NILA NAUNAWAAN ANG BANAL NA KASULATAN NA SI HESUS AY MULING MABUBUHAY MALIBAN KAY JUAN.

ILANG TAON NILANG NAKASAMA SI HESUS SA PANGANGARAL NG MABUTING BALITA PERO HINDI PA RIN NILA NAUNAWAAN KUNG ANO ANG NAKASULAT SA BANAL NA KASULATAN!

Mga Kaibigan,

JESUS CHRIST IS A HERO BECAUSE HE IS OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR.

Ito ang malaking pasasalamat natin sa Diyos ay sapagkat ipinagkaloob niya ang kanyang bugtong na anak na si Hesus para iligtas ang ating mundo.

Ito ngayon ang hamon para sa ating lahat na TAYO RIN AY PWEDENG MAGING BAYANI,

MAGING BAYANI TAYOhttps://i1.wp.com/a7.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/263745_233464663336308_100000183277856_1125553_858226_n.jpg SA PANGANGARAL NG EBANGHELYO NA SI HESUS AY MULING NABUHAY.

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”.
