BABY STEPS

Like newborn infants, long for pure spiritual milk, so that through it
you may grow into salvation. – 1 Peter 2:2

When my son Lance was born, I got so excited to see him grow that I
had to remind myself to take it one step at a time. Newborns are not
yet fully developed and their diet should depend on their
developmental stage. No iron in their milk for the first six months.
Begin feeding solids at six months but only with pureed foods. No
honey, egg whites or spinach at least for the first year. So much to
consider! But now, when I see Lance so healthy, I know that my
diligence paid off.
When I first became a Christian, my relationship with God filled me
with so much joy that I wanted to give up everything. But because I
was not ready, when I received His calling I thought the task was too
much and I quit even before I began.
I learned from my mistake. I got back to basics and took baby steps.
First by getting to know Him again through readings and prayer, then
by looking deep into myself and discovering who I am. After I had done
these, God gave me opportunities to serve and this time, I said yes.

REFLECTION:
No matter what stage of spiritual growth you’re in, enjoy God’s
pampering and give yourself a chance to learn more.

Lord, let Your words nourish me and help me grow.

COMPANION

1st READING

St. Peter outlines to us the basis of our human dignity as seen
through the prism of the death and resurrection of Jesus. It is a very
high ideal to live up to, but possible. Let us accept the dignity God
offers us and witness to the world what it means to live a fully human
life.

1 Peter 2:2-5, 9-12
2 Beloved: Like newborn infants, long for pure spiritual milk so that
through it you may grow into salvation, 3 for you have tasted that the
Lord is good. 4 Come to him, a living stone, rejected by human beings
but chosen and precious in the sight of God, 5 and, like living
stones, let yourselves be built into a spiritual house to be a holy
priesthood to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through
Jesus Christ. 9 But you are “a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy
nation, a people of his own, so that you may announce the praises” of
him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 10 Once
you were “no people” but now you are God’s people; you “had not
received mercy” but now you have received mercy. 11 Beloved, I urge
you as aliens and sojourners to keep away from worldly desires that
wage war against the soul. 12 Maintain good conduct among the
Gentiles, so that if they speak of you as evildoers, they may observe
your good works and glorify God on the day of visitation.

P S A L M

Psalm 100:2, 3, 4, 5
R: Come with joy into the presence of the Lord.
2 Sing joyfully to the LORD, all you lands; serve the LORD with
gladness; come before him with joyful song. (R) 3 Know that the LORD
is God; he made us, his we are; his people, the flock he tends. (R) 4
Enter his gates with thanksgiving, his courts with praise; give thanks
to him; bless his name. (R) 5 The LORD is good: his kindness endures
forever, and his faithfulness, to all generations. (R)

G O S P E L

Jesus calls the blind man to come so that He can heal him. He also
calls us to send us out on mission. Today is the Feast of Augustine of
Canterbury, a monk sent by the Pope to establish the Church in
England. Augustine left the comfort of his monastery in obedience to
the Pope to carry out the task assigned to him. In the same way we
need to listen to the voice of God in our own lives and embrace the
call of the Church, God’s voice on earth, as we seek to bring the
Gospel to the ends of the earth.

Mark 10:46-52
46 As Jesus was leaving Jericho with his disciples and a sizable
crowd, Bartimaeus, a blind man, the son of Timaeus, sat by the
roadside begging. 47 On hearing that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he
began to cry out and say, “Jesus, son of David, have pity on me.” 48
And many rebuked him, telling him to be silent. But he kept calling
out all the more, “Son of David, have pity on me.” 49 Jesus stopped
and said, “Call him.” So they called the blind man, saying to him,
“Take courage; get up, he is calling you.” 50 He threw aside his
cloak, sprang up, and came to Jesus. 51 Jesus said to him in reply,
“What do you want me to do for you?” The blind man replied to him,
“Master, I want to see.” 52 Jesus told him, “Go your way; your faith
has saved you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed him on
the way.

my reflections
t h i n k : Let us accept the dignity that God offers us and witness
to the world what it means to live a fully human life.

SABBATH

BLESSING OR CURSE

We love to bless and be blessed. We believe in blessings.
Some curse and are cursed. Some believe in curses.
Do you believe in curses? If you do not, then why do you believe in
blessings? Is it our belief that makes either blessings or curses
work?
Curses are as real as blessings. If we have faith when we curse, that
which we curse is accursed indeed. If we have faith when we bless,
that which we bless is truly blessed. Be generous so as to bless. Be
careful so as not to curse. Be loving so as to be a blessing. Why
curse anyway? But Jesus cursed the barren fig tree. He did! It was
because, being barren, the fig tree already ceased to be a blessing
long before it was cursed. By cursing the fig tree, Jesus brought to
consciousness what the fig tree really had already become: a curse.
Be fruitful and be a blessing. Do not be a curse. But we are not fig
trees. When we are barren, there is still hope for us to heal and bear
fruit in due time. And this is Good News!
Be healed and bear fruit. Bear fruit and bless. To be healed, we need
to be cleansed as Jesus cleansed the temple with its maladies for it
to be truly what it should be — a house of blessing, never a den of
thieves. Be cleansed and be what you should really be. Be what you are
truly meant to be and bless others.
To be cleansed, we must pray. Prayer purifies us with the presence of
God. This is grace. Pray and be purified. Be in the presence of God
and bless others.
To bless, we must love. Love makes us the presence of God in the
world. This is virtue. Love and be a blessing. Be the presence of God
and bless others.
Are you a blessing or a curse?Fr. Bobby Titco

Reflection Question:
Am I a blessing or a curse? Am I fruitful or barren?

Beginning today, Lord Jesus, I will pray not only for You to bless me
but for You to transform and use me to be Your blessing to others. Be
it far from me that I become a curse to
anyone. Amen.

St. Wiliam of Gellone, pray for us.
