“REJOICE IN THE LORD”

Holy starter for this new week.  Let me share to you a very beautiful and inspiring message that I read while browsing at my facebook: “Without God, our week would be---Sinday, Mournday, Tearsday, Wasteday, Thirstday, Fightday, Shatterday.  Seven days without God makes one weak.  May we have a Grace-filled and God-centered week.
------------------Today is the 3rd Sunday of Advent, also known as GAUDETE SUNDAY.  “Gaudete” is a Latin word which means “rejoice”.  We are therefore challenged to rejoice always in the Lord.  To rejoice is not just a suggestion but a command for us Christians.  St. Paul tells us that we can only find true joy by praying without ceasing, giving thanks in all circumstances and refraining from every kind of evil.  What makes us unique as Christians is our joyful disposition even amidst sufferings.
------------------We just celebrated last December 8 the Solemnity of our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, our patroness here in the United States of America.  May our love and devotion to our Blessed Mother increase our appreciation to what is true and pure in the eyes of God.  Through her motherly guidance, may we become a force of hope to our troubled world… and a force of good to change the world.
------------------Let us heed the clarion call of the Advent Season---to rediscover God’s plan for us, that is, to become the best-version of ourselves.  Life is not about having and doing, it is about becoming.  Many times we have the feeling that we are not enough, not smart enough, not loved enough and not good enough.   These feelings are usually born from comparing ourselves with others.  But God does not compare us to anybody else.  Comparisons are worthless in a world of individuals.  God simply wants us to become the persons He created us to be.
-------------------I will be celebrating my 24th priestly anniversary this coming December 17.  Please join me in thanking the Lord for the gift of priesthood.  I am
far from perfect, yet special because the Lord has chosen me in spite of my unworthiness.  It’s pure grace that I have reached this far in my ministry.  I feel amazingly graced by the Lord.  I am greatly blessed to be here in Aloha State…the
new locus of my priestly ministry.
-------------------One of the treasured Catholic Filipino traditions is the Misa Aguinaldo.  The Misa-Aguinaldo or Gift Mass is a 9-day novena masses offered in preparation for Christmas.  Filipinos have this belief that if you complete the 9-day novena masses, your prayers and wishes will be granted by the Lord.  Let us make a commitment to attend all the novena masses not only for our prayers to be granted…but also to offer our due praise and honor to the Lord.  Coming to these masses in the evening and after a tiring day of work is indeed a sacrifice…offered as gift to the One who is to come, Our Lord Jesus Christ.
