EVERYDAY MASS, EVERYDAY SUCCESS

Be eager to present yourself acceptable to God, a workman who causes
no disgrace. – 2 Timothy 2:15

“Do I hear right that you go to church every day?” quipped my boss
during a get-together. “Yes, I do.” I answered hesitantly, wondering
how he got the information. I told him that I need it for my work;
it’s where I get my strength, my wisdom, my guidance and my
protection.
As an IT manager overseas, there are lots of challenges that try my
patience, wisdom and focus. It can be wearisome without the Lord in my
life.
But more than my need for Him, it’s my deep longing for God and my
love for Him that drives me to seek Him each day. The Gospel reading
today says, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and
with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength”
(Mark 12:30).
As I present myself to Him daily at Mass, I receive His guidance that
brings me success in my workplace.Danny Tariman (danny@dtariman.com)

REFLECTION:
Do you have a difficult task in your workplace? Try seeking the Lord
in the Eucharist.

Thank You, Lord, for Your guidance. You are my Wisdom. You are my Strength.

COMPANION

1st READING

God has demonstrated His faithfulness to His people over the past
millennia; it is now our turn to demonstrate our faithfulness and
perseverance in doing His will. Surely God will always be with us —
but will we always stay close to God? Faithfulness does not just
happen. It is a result of the decisions we make. We need to choose God
over and above what the world offers us over and over again.

2 Timothy 2:8-15
8 Beloved: Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, a descendant
of David: such is my Gospel, 9 for which I am suffering, even to the
point of chains, like a criminal. But the word of God is not chained.
10 Therefore, I bear with everything for the sake of those who are
chosen, so that they too may obtain the salvation that is in Christ
Jesus, together with eternal glory. 11 This saying is trustworthy: If
we have died with him we shall also live with him; 12 if we persevere
we shall also reign with him. But if we deny him he will deny us. 13
If we are unfaithful he remains faithful, for he cannot deny himself.
14 Remind people of these things and charge them before God to stop
disputing about words. This serves no useful purpose since it harms
those who listen. 15 Be eager to present yourself as acceptable to
God, a workman who causes no disgrace, imparting the word of truth
without deviation.

P S A L M

Psalm 25:4-5ab, 8-9, 10, 14
R: Teach me your ways, O Lord.
4 Your ways, O LORD, make known to me; teach me your paths, 5 guide me
in your truth and teach me, for you are God my savior. (R) 8 Good and
upright is the LORD; thus he shows sinners the way. 9 He guides the
humble to justice, he teaches the humble his way. (R) 10 All the paths
of the LORD are kindness and constancy toward those who keep his
covenant and his decrees. 14 The friendship of the LORD is with those
who fear him, and his covenant, for their instruction. (R)

G O S P E L

The first three commandments tell us how to love God. The latter seven
instruct us how to deal with our neighbor. Perhaps this distribution
tells us that we are going to struggle more with loving our neighbor
than God. Makes sense to me as I have a lot more neighbors than gods
in my life.

Mark 12:28-34
28 One of the scribes came to Jesus and asked him, “Which is the first
of all the commandments?” 29 Jesus replied, “The first is this: ‘Hear,
O Israel! The Lord our God is Lord alone! 30 You shall love the Lord
your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind,
and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this: ‘You shall love
your neighbour as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater
than these.” 32 The scribe said to him, “Well said, teacher. You are
right in saying, ‘He is One and there is no other than he.’ 33 And ‘to
love him with all your heart, with all your understanding, with all
your strength, and to love your neighbour as yourself’ is worth more
than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.” 34 And when Jesus saw that
he answered with understanding, he said to him, “You are not far from
the kingdom of God.” And no one dared to ask him any more questions.

my reflections
think: Faithfulness does not just happen; it is a result of the
decisions we make.

SABBATH

A REMINDER TO LOVE

I had an aunt who badgered us with endless reminders all the time. In
the few times I visited her in Canada many years ago, she would pepper
me with repetitive reminders days before I set back for home. Though I
resented her then, I must admit that those reminders eventually
worked. Indeed, as the scholastics used to say, “repetitio mater
studiorum” (repetition is the mother of learning).
The readings today smack of repetition, reminders and rejoinders. In
the same “farewell” letter of Paul to Timothy that we started
reflecting on yesterday, the opening line starts with — you guessed it
right — “remember…” And the solicitous Paul, seemingly unsatisfied
with a simple reminder, insists that Timothy do the same: “Keep
reminding people of these things and charge them before God to stop
disputing about mere words.”  The response after the first reading
actually offers a rejoinder to the solicitous reminder from Paul — a
prayer that “reminds” God, as it were, to keep on “teaching us, His
ways.”
The Gospel speaks of something not altogether unrelated to the same
motif. Echoing what the people of Israel were told in the Old
Testament, the Lord reminds us now about exactly how He can teach us
His ways. “Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is Lord alone!” It is for
no other reason than this that the Jews traditionally recite this
prayer, called the Shema, several times in the course of a day.
We are a people with such short memories. We forget events all too
easily. Thank God, we have, as a community of believers, a privileged
moment to bask in glorious memory. We call it liturgy, the official
worship that the Church offers to God. In the liturgy, however, we do
more than just hone our memory skills. We don’t just remember — we do
and celebrate a memorial. And biblical memorial is something that
actualizes, makes present and real —albeit in a sacramental way — what
we celebrate. And what do we celebrate? God’s love and the reminder
for us to love Him in return. Fr. Chito Dimaranan,
SDB
Reflection Question:
How do I remind myself of God’s love for me and His presence in my
life every day?

May I always remember, Lord Jesus, that You died on the Cross because
of Your great love for me. Help me to remember to love You in return
by living a life that’s pleasing to You.

St. Kevin, pray for us.
