First Reading
NM 24:2-7, 15-17A

When Balaam raised his eyes and saw Israel encamped, tribe by tribe,
the spirit of God came upon him,
and he gave voice to his oracle:

The utterance of Balaam, son of Beor,
the utterance of a man whose eye is true,
The utterance of one who hears what God says,
and knows what the Most High knows,
Of one who sees what the Almighty sees,
enraptured, and with eyes unveiled:
How goodly are your tents, O Jacob;
your encampments, O Israel!
They are like gardens beside a stream,
like the cedars planted by the LORD.
His wells shall yield free-flowing waters,
he shall have the sea within reach;
His king shall rise higher,
and his royalty shall be exalted.

Then Balaam gave voice to his oracle:

The utterance of Balaam, son of Beor,
the utterance of the man whose eye is true,
The utterance of one who hears what God says,
and knows what the Most High knows,
Of one who sees what the Almighty sees,
enraptured, and with eyes unveiled.
I see him, though not now;
I behold him, though not near:
A star shall advance from Jacob,
and a staff shall rise from Israel.

Responsorial Psalm
PS 25:4-5AB, 6 AND 7BC, 8-9
R. (4) Teach me your ways, O Lord.

Your ways, O LORD, make known to me;
teach me your paths,
Guide me in your truth and teach me,
for you are God my savior.
R. Teach me your ways, O Lord.
Remember that your compassion, O LORD,
and your kindness are from of old.
In your kindness remember me,
because of your goodness, O LORD.
R. Teach me your ways, O Lord.
Good and upright is the LORD;
thus he shows sinners the way.
He guides the humble to justice,
he teaches the humble his way.
R. Teach me your ways, O Lord.

Gospel
MT 21:23-27

When Jesus had come into the temple area,
the chief priests and the elders of the people approached him
as he was teaching and said,
“By what authority are you doing these things?
And who gave you this authority?”
Jesus said to them in reply,
“I shall ask you one question, and if you answer it for me,
then I shall tell you by what authority I do these things.
Where was John’s baptism from?
Was it of heavenly or of human origin?”
They discussed this among themselves and said,
“If we say ‘Of heavenly origin,’ he will say to us,
‘Then why did you not believe him?’
But if we say, ‘Of human origin,’ we fear the crowd,
for they all regard John as a prophet.”
So they said to Jesus in reply, “We do not know.”
He himself said to them,
“Neither shall I tell you by what authority I do these things.”

“I see him, though not now…” (Numbers 24:17)

REFLECTION
The end of 2015 is fast-approaching and looking back, this year has been a year of breakthroughs. This year has also been a test of faith for me.

I left my dream university with no certainty of getting into a new one to pursue the program I really want only to find out that the program I want is not offered for transferees in the universities of my choice. It was truly heartbreaking for I had no school anymore to go back to. I had no choice but to hold on to the Lord’s plan for my life. I planned to take a different program first then just shift to the program I want and so I applied for two universities. Two weeks into my application, one university said that the slots left for transferees were already full so I only had one university left, one chance. I took the exam on the other university and it was the most terrifying 10 days of my life as I waited for the results. If I don’t pass this, I will have to stop for a term because I have no school. Imagine the horror I felt! Regrets came over me as well as fear and doubts. I had no choice but to surrender and trust in the Lord and his plans for me. Nearing to the day the results will come out, I was more relaxed and was ready to accept whatever the results was. Even though I don’t see the road ahead or the things that will happen during that time, I chose to stay calm in the presence of the Lord.

By God’s grace, I passed and am currently studying in that university. The fear of having no friends and having a hard time adjusting academically also went away for the Lord blessed me and surrounded me with new friends and with wisdom and strength to conquer the challenges in my academic life on my new school. Although I am still not in the program I want, I am now more confident and relaxed in Jesus’ name, continuously praying and working hard to get there.

The prophets in the Bible believed that a Savior will come even though they didn’t see Him. True enough, our Messiah, our Savior; Jesus Christ did come to save them and us all. Today, we are reminded that even though we don’t see the end of the road we are in, we must be patient and believe that all things will work together for our own good for our Savior will never abandon us and bring us to a place to harm us. Even though some things in our lives are scary and uncertain, we must have faith that our Savior put us there for a reason and that reason is to give us a happier and better life.

Prayer
Jesus, even though sometimes I get scared because I don’t see the plans You have for me, may I never lose faith in You and that may my faith grow stronger every single day.

ROM 15:14-21

I myself am convinced about you, my brothers and sisters,
that you yourselves are full of goodness,
filled with all knowledge, and able to admonish one another.
But I have written to you rather boldly in some respects to remind you,
because of the grace given me by God
to be a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles
in performing the priestly service of the Gospel of God,
so that the offering up of the Gentiles may be acceptable,
sanctified by the Holy Spirit.
In Christ Jesus, then, I have reason to boast in what pertains to God.
For I will not dare to speak of anything
except what Christ has accomplished through me
to lead the Gentiles to obedience by word and deed,
by the power of signs and wonders,
by the power of the Spirit of God,
so that from Jerusalem all the way around to Illyricum
I have finished preaching the Gospel of Christ.
Thus I aspire to proclaim the Gospel
not where Christ has already been named,
so that I do not build on another’s foundation,
but as it is written:

Those who have never been told of him shall see,
and those who have never heard of him shall understand.

Responsorial Psalm
PS 98:1, 2-3AB, 3CD-4

R. (see 2b) The Lord has revealed to the nations his saving power.
Sing to the LORD a new song,
for he has done wondrous deeds;
His right hand has won victory for him,
his holy arm.
R. The Lord has revealed to the nations his saving power.
The LORD has made his salvation known:
in the sight of the nations he has revealed his justice.
He has remembered his kindness and his faithfulness
toward the house of Israel.
R. The Lord has revealed to the nations his saving power.
All the ends of the earth have seen
the salvation by our God.
Sing joyfully to the LORD, all you lands;
break into song; sing praise.
R. The Lord has revealed to the nations his saving power.

Gospel
LK 16:1-8

Jesus said to his disciples, “A rich man had a steward
who was reported to him for squandering his property.
He summoned him and said,
‘What is this I hear about you?
Prepare a full account of your stewardship,
because you can no longer be my steward.’
The steward said to himself, ‘What shall I do,
now that my master is taking the position of steward away from me?
I am not strong enough to dig and I am ashamed to beg.
I know what I shall do so that,
when I am removed from the stewardship,
they may welcome me into their homes.’
He called in his master’s debtors one by one.
To the first he said, ‘How much do you owe my master?’
He replied, ‘One hundred measures of olive oil.’
He said to him, ‘Here is your promissory note.
Sit down and quickly write one for fifty.’
Then to another he said, ‘And you, how much do you owe?’
He replied, ‘One hundred measures of wheat.’
He said to him, ‘Here is your promissory note;
write one for eighty.’
And the master commended that dishonest steward for acting prudently.
For the children of this world
are more prudent in dealing with their own generation
than the children of light.”


peanutbutter

“The Lord has revealed to the nations his saving power.” (Psalm 98:2b)

REFLECTION
Back then, I really loved peanut butter. I got so addicted to it that I put it on everything I eat. I put peanut butter on hotdogs even if I eat it with rice. That’s how much I loved peanut butter. Like everything else in the world, any thing that is too much is bad and so when my parents noticed that I was eating too much peanut butter, they told me to stop. They explained to me the bad effects of having it too much. As the naughty kid I was back then, I always sneak in the kitchen at night and eat at least two spoonfuls of peanut butter. As a consequence, I got tonsillitis and was on meds for a week.

If only I listened and followed what my parents told me, I wouldn’t have suffered from tonsillitis. If only I saw past them reprimanding me and saw their concern and love for me instead, I wouldn’t have had to be on medicine for a week. Brothers and sisters, in the same way, we often take the word of God for granted. We go to mass every Sunday, listen to the word of God, read and reflect on it but usually it stops there. We sometimes forget that to truly appreciate and accept the word of God, we must act it out and live it. We must have the courage to live the word of God on our daily lives despite the worldly things surrounding us. When we listen to His word and how we must live our lives according to His teachings, it will do us no harm but rather we would feel His love for us more each day.

Prayer
Father, I pray for courage that I may live each day according to your teachings.

Jonah 3:1-10 
The word of the Lord was addressed a second time to Jonah: ‘Up!’
he said ‘Go to Nineveh, the great city, and preach to them as I told you to.’
Jonah set out and went to Nineveh in obedience to the word of the Lord.
Now Nineveh was a city great beyond compare: it took three days to cross it.
Jonah went on into the city, making a day’s journey.
He preached in these words, ‘Only forty days more and Nineveh is going to be destroyed.’
And the people of Nineveh believed in God; they proclaimed a fast and put on sackcloth,
from the greatest to the least.
The news reached the king of Nineveh, who rose from his throne, took off his robe,
put on sackcloth and sat down in ashes.
A proclamation was then promulgated throughout Nineveh, by decree of the king and his ministers, as follows:
‘Men and beasts, herds and flocks, are to taste nothing; they must not eat, they must not drink water.
All are to put on sackcloth and call on God with all their might;
and let everyone renounce his evil behaviour and the wicked things he has done.
Who knows if God will not change his mind and relent, if he will not renounce his burning wrath, so that we do not perish?’
God saw their efforts to renounce their evil behaviour, and God relented: he did not inflict on them the disaster which he had threatened.

Responsorial Psalm
Psalm 129:1-4,7-8

If you, O Lord, should mark our guilt: Lord, who would survive?
Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord,
Lord, hear my voice!
O let your ears be attentive
to the voice of my pleading.
If you, O Lord, should mark our guilt: Lord, who would survive?
If you, O Lord, should mark our guilt,
Lord, who would survive?
But with you is found forgiveness:
for this we revere you.
If you, O Lord, should mark our guilt: Lord, who would survive?
Because with the Lord there is mercy
and fullness of redemption,
Israel indeed he will redeem
from all its iniquity.
If you, O Lord, should mark our guilt: Lord, who would survive?

Gospel
Luke 10:38-42

Jesus came to a village,
and a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house.
She had a sister called Mary, who sat down at the Lord’s feet
and listened to him speaking.
Now Martha who was distracted with all the serving said,
‘Lord, do you not care that my sister is leaving me to do the serving all by myself?
Please tell her to help me.’
But the Lord answered: ‘Martha, Martha,’
he said,
‘you worry and fret about so many things, and yet few are needed, indeed only one. It is Mary who has chosen the better part; it is not to be taken from her.’


procrastinate

“When God saw by their actions how they turned from their evil way, he repented of the evil that he had threatened to do to them; he did not carry it out.” (Jonah 3:10)

REFLECTION
One thing I loved to do back when I was in grade school (and until now): procrastinating. I never
studied for an upcoming exam unless it was the day before the exam. One reason for my laziness would be my addiction to playing Playstation and Gameboy. Playing with those game consoles takes up so much of my time and energy that literally nothing is left for studying.

My parents noticed my bad habits and told me that if I wasn’t going to change and know my priorities, they would take away my Playstation and Gameboy. I didn’t listen and one day I went home from school and found out that my parents really did hide my game consoles. I was mad at first but I realized that I was the one committing a mistake. From this, I learned to prioritize my studies and not to procrastinate. I changed my ways and after a while, my parents gave me back my Playstation and Gameboy!

Every day is a new day given to us by God for us to contemplate our wrong ways and change them; every day is a new day for us to ask for forgiveness for our mistakes and be forgiven. Today, the Lord is knocking on our hearts to be humble enough to admit our wrong doings, bad habits and wrong ways and ask forgiveness for them. Today is a chance for us to start fresh away from the negatives and to start anew!

Prayer
Lord, thank You for reminding me today that I can always start changing for the better. May I
break away from all my negative habits and ways little by little. Thank You for Your gift of forgiveness.

The Lord addressed Job out of the storm and said:
Who shut within doors the sea,
when it burst forth from the womb;
when I made the clouds its garment

When I set limits for it
and fastened the bar of its door,
and said: Thus far shall you come but no farther,
and here shall your proud waves be stilled!

2 COR 5:14-17

Brothers and sisters:
The love of Christ impels us,
once we have come to the conviction that one died for all;
therefore, all have died.
He indeed died for all,
so that those who live might no longer live for themselves
but for him who for their sake died and was raised.

Consequently, from now on we regard no one according to the flesh;
even if we once knew Christ according to the flesh,
yet now we know him so no longer.
So whoever is in Christ is a new creation:
the old things have passed away;
behold, new things have come.

Gospel
MK 4:35-41

On that day, as evening drew on, Jesus said to his disciples:
“Let us cross to the other side.”
Leaving the crowd, they took Jesus with them in the boat just as he was.
And other boats were with him.
A violent squall came up and waves were breaking over the boat,
so that it was already filling up.
Jesus was in the stern, asleep on a cushion.
They woke him and said to him,
“Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?”
He woke up,
rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Quiet! Be still!”
The wind ceased and there was great calm.
Then he asked them, “Why are you terrified?
Do you not yet have faith?”
They were filled with great awe and said to one another,
“Who then is this whom even wind and sea obey?”

I have always admired my mother. She is one of the kindest, most generous, thoughtful and religious persons I know in my life. She is the one who brought us to BLD which really changed my relationship with Christ.

It was in late December 2011 that we learned that she has a brain tumor and hydrocephalus. We were in a mall when my sister told me about it; she told me “Kunin mo yung mga bags na dala ni Mommy, bawal daw siya mag buhat ng mabigat o mapagod.” I thought that this was the worst thing that can happen but I was wrong. My mother went to different doctors for 2nd opinion on what to do with her condition. All of them said that she must have an open-surgery to remove the tumor.

My mother’s doctors discussed the procedure and effects with my dad then my dad told us about it. Pain, hurt, fear and confusion started to bottle up in my heart. I started questioning God: “Out of all the bad people in the world, why does this have to happen to my mother who is a committed servant of Christ?” But, most especially, I feared what might and can happen to my mother if the operation wouldn’t be successful. It was a situation where I had nothing to do but to believe in my mother’s doctors and trust in God, the mighty Healer. We were blessed with loving and comforting relatives and friends who stood by our side and prayed like warriors with us.

With God’s grace, the operation was successful and my mother is given a second life. She is now healthy and continuing to live a life for Christ.

Friends, with God in our lives, there is nothing to fear. Although it is normal to find ourselves in a situation where fear and anxiety eat us alive, let us not forget that that God that is bigger than all our problems. He stands by us so that we may feel strong and secure, blessed and at peace. God will grant the desires of our hearts, clarify our doubts, solve our toughest problems, and heal all our hurts. God will calm the raging seas in our lives.

To my Dad, thank you for being our pillar of strength. Happy Father’s Day! – Kae Geneciran

Heavenly Father, I will be still and know You are God of my life. I trust that You are in control of everything. Amen.

Crossroad

First Reading
Acts 16:1-10
Paul reached also Derbe and Lystra
where there was a disciple named Timothy,
the son of a Jewish woman who was a believer,
but his father was a Greek.
The brothers in Lystra and Iconium spoke highly of him,
and Paul wanted him to come along with him.
On account of the Jews of that region, Paul had him circumcised,
for they all knew that his father was a Greek.
As they traveled from city to city,
they handed on to the people for observance the decisions
reached by the Apostles and presbyters in Jerusalem.
Day after day the churches grew stronger in faith
and increased in number.They traveled through the Phrygian and Galatian territory
because they had been prevented by the Holy Spirit
from preaching the message in the province of Asia.
When they came to Mysia, they tried to go on into Bithynia,
but the Spirit of Jesus did not allow them,
so they crossed through Mysia and came down to Troas.
During the night Paul had a vision.
A Macedonian stood before him and implored him with these words,
“Come over to Macedonia and help us.”
When he had seen the vision,
we sought passage to Macedonia at once,
concluding that God had called us to proclaim the Good News to them.

John 15:18-21
Jesus said to his disciples:
“If the world hates you, realize that it hated me first.
If you belonged to the world, the world would love its own;
but because you do not belong to the world,
and I have chosen you out of the world,
the world hates you.
Remember the word I spoke to you,
‘No slave is greater than his master.’
If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you.
If they kept my word, they will also keep yours.
And they will do all these things to you on account of my name,
because they do not know the one who sent me.”


“During the night Paul had a vision. A Macedonian stood before him and implored him with these words, ‘Come over to Macedonia and help us.’ When he had seen the vision, we sought passage to Macedonia at once, concluding that God had called us to proclaim the good news to them.” (Acts 16:9-10)

REFLECTION

I have always wanted to become a doctor. I want to help people and save lives in the future. I was around 9 years old yet I already had a plan – take up BS Psychology in my dream university and study Medicine in the same university.

Junior year in high school came, and it was the time we all had to decide what program to apply to and which university to go to. I thought it was going to be an easy decision for me since I already had a plan but since the school I went to understands how big of a decision we had to make, we had plenty of seminars about choosing the right program and the right school for our future and also had one-on-one sessions with our guidance counselor and I heard a lot of comments and suggestions about my plan. People advised me to take up Nursing instead as a pre-med because it competitively prepares the students who will take up medicine. After weighing the advantages and disadvantages of my choices, I decided to take up Nursing.

Currently, my first year as a nursing student in my dream school is about to end and I am unhappy and uncertain if I took the right path. I am faced with a tough decision I have to make: stay as a nursing student or shift to BS Psychology? It really is hard to decide, there was even a point where I would just cry because I literally have no idea what to do and where to go. A friend told me to just read the Bible every day and I would see God’s message for me. Since then, I never fail to find comfort and assurance in the word of the Lord when I started to just surrender to Him everything.

Often times, when we are in a crossroad we decide for ourselves that we forget to pray for all our decisions in life and ask guidance from our God of dreams. We forget to surrender ourselves to the plan He had for us before we are even born. Today, I may still not know exactly what path to take but God is reminding us to trust in His plans for us and to surrender to His will. The Lord reminds us to be still and listen to His whispers in our hearts as He leads us to the right path to fulfill His perfect plan for each of us. – Kae Geneciran (kaegeneciran@yahoo.com)

Prayer

Lord God, bless me with wisdom and patience as I continue to seek your plan for my life. Help me, so that I may listen well to your whispers in my heart. Amen.

Lv 25:1, 8-17

The LORD said to Moses on Mount Sinai,
“Seven weeks of years shall you count–seven times seven years–
so that the seven cycles amount to forty-nine years.
Then, on the tenth day of the seventh month, let the trumpet resound;
on this, the Day of Atonement, the trumpet blast shall re-echo
throughout your land.
This fiftieth year you shall make sacred
by proclaiming liberty in the land for all its inhabitants.
It shall be a jubilee for you,
when every one of you shall return to his own property,
every one to his own family estate.
In this fiftieth year, your year of jubilee,
you shall not sow, nor shall you reap the aftergrowth
or pick the grapes from the untrimmed vines.
Since this is the jubilee, which shall be sacred for you,
you may not eat of its produce,
except as taken directly from the field.

“In this year of jubilee, then,
every one of you shall return to his own property.
Therefore, when you sell any land to your neighbor
or buy any from him, do not deal unfairly.
On the basis of the number of years since the last jubilee
shall you purchase the land from your neighbor;
and so also, on the basis of the number of years for crops,
shall he sell it to you.
When the years are many, the price shall be so much the more;
when the years are few, the price shall be so much the less.
For it is really the number of crops that he sells you.
Do not deal unfairly, then; but stand in fear of your God.
I, the LORD, am your God.”

Gospel
Mt 14:1-12

Herod the tetrarch heard of the reputation of Jesus
and said to his servants, “This man is John the Baptist.
He has been raised from the dead;
that is why mighty powers are at work in him.”

Now Herod had arrested John, bound him, and put him in prison
on account of Herodias, the wife of his brother Philip,
for John had said to him,
“It is not lawful for you to have her.”
Although he wanted to kill him, he feared the people,
for they regarded him as a prophet.
But at a birthday celebration for Herod,
the daughter of Herodias performed a dance before the guests
and delighted Herod so much
that he swore to give her whatever she might ask for.
Prompted by her mother, she said,
“Give me here on a platter the head of John the Baptist.”
The king was distressed,
but because of his oaths and the guests who were present,
he ordered that it be given, and he had John beheaded in the prison.
His head was brought in on a platter and given to the girl,
who took it to her mother.
His disciples came and took away the corpse
and buried him; and they went and told Jesus.

REFLECTION
“But stand in fear of your God. I, the LORD, am your God.” -Lv 25:17

Growing up, I have always been afraid of making mistakes, for my Dad has a bad temper. My sister and I usually refer to him as “Hulk” because of how he is when he gets mad. He would usually warn us and tell us “You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry.”

Whenever my Dad gets mad at me, I would always go to my Mom, cry and ask for help, then my Mom would always tell me “Hindi naman siya galit sa’yo, galit siya sa mali mong ginawa. Lilipas din galit niyan.” True enough, at the end of the day he would be the one who would go to me say sorry for getting mad, hug me and tell me that he forgives me. He ends by telling me that he loves me no matter what, despite all my mistakes. He would always remind me, wanting me to understand that he just wants the best for me, and that he wants me to grow up with good morals.

Friends, the Lord tells us to fear Him not because He wants power, but because He only wants the best for us. He is reminding us as well that He is a forgiving Father. Having fear in Him will always lead us to the proper path. He has given us His commandments to follow and live by everyday so that we may be the person He wants us to be. -Kae Geneciran (kaegeneciran@yahoo.com)

Lord, may You bless me with humility, that I may ask forgiveness from You and to the people I have hurt. May You remind me today of where you want me to go and who you want me to be, Amen.
