REFLECTION FROM THE DESK OF THE PASTOR
Today’s Gospel passage talks about our attitude towards our faith and our active faith in God. What supposed to be are the attitudes of a Christian towards his/her faith in God? Does it mean going to Mass every Sunday? Does it mean praying or having statues of the Blessed Virgin Mary and other Saints in our house? Does it mean sharing one faith, one Baptism and one Lord? Yes, but more than these, a Christian should not be known only by his/her attitude towards his/her faith but most especially on how he/she acts upon this faith through loving. Sometimes, it is easy to be faithful and loving to God and to others when everything is going well for us just as it is easy to be loving and kind to pleasant and nice people. But we make so many excuses and we don’t want to perform our responsibilities as believing Christians. We are challenged to do our duties as Christians and live with them by nurturing and developing the gift of faith. God says do your best and I will do the rest. Faith in God presupposes faith in ourselves.
