DIDACHE
 
THE SECRET
 
"... only say the word and my servant will be healed." – Matthew 8:8

Simply faith (not simple faith). That's all this gentile Roman official had. Being an officer, he knew what authority was all about. And he knew the kind of authority that Jesus had. He didn't demand any signs from heaven like the Pharisees did. Jesus knew who He was and this Roman official knew that.
This reminds me of a popular healing priest, Fr. Suarez. He heals so quietly without much fanfare just by touching and conversing casually at times with the people asking for healing. None of that demon whipping, casting out screams and mantras as if the demons inside the sick person were deaf. If that's the kind of healing session you're used to, you are in for a surprise when you watch Fr. Suarez at work. It's seemingly effortless but the number of healings speaks for the power at work.
When you know who you are and whose you are, life will suddenly cease to be complicated. Life only becomes hard when you are trying to live it out on your own. When you recognize the true source of life and power, everything becomes real simple. Ronna Ledesma (ronnaledesma@email.com)

REFLECTION:
"I came that they might have life and have it abundantly." (John 10:10)

Lord, give me a childlike faith.

1st READING

The People of God lament the destruction of the Temple and of their nation. Yet they only have themselves to blame. Does this story sound familiar? Well, it reminded me of my own life up until the time I decided enough was enough — the day I decided to be a disciple. Since that day things have been very different, not yet perfect, but definitely moving in the right direction.

Lamentation 2:2, 10-14, 18-19
2 The Lord has consumed without pity all the dwellings of Jacob; he has torn down in his anger the fortresses of daughter Judah; he has brought to the ground in dishonor her king and her princes. 10 On the ground in silence sit the old men of daughter Zion; they strew dust on their heads and gird themselves with sackcloth; the maidens of Jerusalem bow their heads to the ground. 11 Worn out from weeping are my eyes, within me all is in ferment; my gall is poured out on the ground because of the downfall of the daughter of my people, as child and infant faint away in the open spaces of the town. 12 They ask their mothers, "Where is the cereal?" — in vain, as they faint away like the wounded in the streets of the city, and breathe their last in their mothers' arms. 13 To what can I liken or compare you, O daughter Jerusalem? What example can I show you for your comfort, virgin daughter Zion? For great as the sea is your downfall; who can heal you?
14 Your prophets had for you false and specious visions; they did not lay bare your guilt, to avert your fate; they beheld for you in vision false and misleading portents. 18 Cry out to the Lord; moan, O daughter Zion! Let your tears flow like a torrent day and night; let there be no respite for you, no repose for your eyes. 19 Rise up, shrill in the night, at the beginning of every watch; pour out your heart like water in the presence of the Lord; lift up your hands to him for the lives of your little ones Who faint from hunger at the corner of every street.

P S A L M

Psalm 74:1b-2, 3-5, 6-7, 20-21
R: Lord, forget not the souls of your poor ones.
1 Why, O God, have you cast us off forever? Why does your anger smolder against the sheep of your pasture? 2 Remember your flock which you built up of old, the tribe you redeemed as your inheritance, Mount Zion, where you took up your abode. (R) 3 Turn your steps toward the utter ruins; toward all the damage the enemy has done in the sanctuary. 4 Your foes roar triumphantly in your shrine; they have set up their tokens of victory. 5 They are like men coming up with axes to a clump of trees. (R) 6 With chisel and hammer they hack at all its panelling of sanctuary. 7 They set your sanctuary on fire; the place where your name abides they have razed and profaned. (R) 20 Look to your covenant, for the hiding places in the land and the plains are full of violence. 21 May the humble not retire in confusion; may the afflicted and the poor praise your name. (R)
 
G O S P E L
 
Jesus heals many who are sick. What about the sick who are not healed when we pray for them? Perhaps God has some other plan for them? I do not know. We all have to die of something, so why not sickness? It is not as though some people never experience mortal death. The will of God will always retain a certain mysterious element beyond our understanding.

Matthew 8:5-17
5 When Jesus entered Capernaum, a centurion approached him and appealed to him, 6 saying, "Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, suffering dreadfully." 7 He said to him, "I will come and cure him." 8 The centurion said in reply, "Lord, I am not worthy to have you enter under my roof; only say the word and my servant will be healed. 9 For I too am a person subject to authority, with soldiers subject to me. And I say to one, 'Go,' and he goes; and to another, 'Come here,' and he comes; and to my slave, 'Do this,' and he does it." 10 When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and said to those following him, "Amen, I say to you, in no one in Israel have I found such faith. 11 I say to you, many will come from the east and the west, and will recline with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob at the banquet in the kingdom of heaven, 12 but the children of the kingdom will be driven out into the outer darkness, where there will be wailing and
grinding of teeth." 13 And Jesus said to the centurion, "You may go; as you have believed, let it be done for you." And at that very hour his servant was healed. 14 Jesus entered the house of Peter, and saw his mother-in-law lying in bed with a fever. 15 He touched her hand, the fever left her, and she rose and waited on him. 16 When it was evening, they brought him many who were possessed by demons, and he drove out the spirits by a word and cured all the sick, 17 to fulfill what had been said by Isaiah the prophet: "He took away our infirmities and bore our diseases."

words of life

All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for
refutation, for correction, and for training in righteousness. – 2
Timothy 3:16

You’ve seen them on TV.
Each one professes to be right. Both quote the Bible expertly, using
God’s Word for defense and offense.
Yet, what they seem to achieve is more divisiveness. Insults and
provocations are their primary weapons as they tear down each other on
different channels. It’s saddening to note that the Good News is used
for destructive debates and un-Christian misinformation. They seem to
just one-up each other.
Overuse, misuse and abuse of Scriptures will never lead to God.
My friend Rene sends me text messages that contain God’s Word of hope
regularly. Often, they will strike me at the heart. They are just the
right words at the right time. That’s what Scriptures should do:
become a source of inspiration and personal words of God to you. Jun
Asis mabuting.balita@gmail.com)

REFLECTION:
Have you quoted the Bible to uplift somebody today?

Lord, You alone have the words of eternal life. Grant that I may be
Your witness.

1st READING

Paul tells us that “all Scripture is useful for teaching, reproof,
correction and training in righteousness.” Scripture is the basic
manual of Christian survival and we are mad if we do not use it
accordingly. There is nothing magical about reading and understanding
the Scriptures; there is a multitude of books to help the beginner and
the expert. We have no excuse. Reading Scripture has to be the bedrock
of our life of faith.

2 Timothy 3:10-17
10 You have followed my teaching, way of life, purpose, faith,
patience, love, endurance, 11 persecutions, and sufferings, such as
happened to me in Antioch, Iconium, and Lystra, persecutions that I
endured. Yet from all these things the Lord delivered me. 12 In fact,
all who want to live religiously in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.
13 But wicked people and charlatans will go from bad to worse,
deceivers and deceived. 14 But you, remain faithful to what you have
learned and believed, because you know from whom you learned it, 15
and that from infancy you have known the sacred scriptures, which are
capable of giving you wisdom for salvation through faith in Christ
Jesus. 16 All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching,
for refutation, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17
so that one who belongs to God may be competent, equipped for every
good work.

P S A L M

Psalm 119:157, 160, 161, 165, 166, 168
R: O Lord, great peace have they who love your law.
157 Though my persecutors and my foes are many, I turn notaway from
your decrees. (R) 160 Permanence is your word’s chief trait; each of
your just ordinances is everlasting. (R) 161 Princes persecute me
without cause but my heart stands in awe of your word. (R) 165 Those
who love your law have great peace, and for them there is no stumbling
block. (R) 166 I wait for your salvation, O LORD, and your commands I
fulfill. (R) 168 I keep your precepts and your decrees, for all my
ways are before you. (R)

G O S P E L

This rhetorical question, I believe, reinforces the notion that the
Messiah is a descendant of David. The crowd is pleased with Jesus’
argument as they seem to slowly accept Him as the Messiah. If that is
the case, they would definitely be happy as they have been longing for
a Messiah for centuries now.

Mark 12:35-37
35 As Jesus was teaching in the temple area he said, “How do the
scribes claim that the Christ is the son of David? 36 David himself,
inspired by the Holy Spirit, said: “The Lord said to my lord, ‘Sit at
my right hand until I place your enemies under your feet.’ ” 37 David
himself calls him ‘lord’; so how is he his son?” The great crowd heard
this with delight.

my reflections
think: Reading Scripture has to be the bedrock of our life of faith.

SABBATH

INSPIRED OF GOD

I love poetry. I love songs, including pop, most especially if they
are poetic. I enjoy even the religious poems of Rumi, the classical
Muslim man of letters and mysticism. I love them, for they inspire me.
Oftentimes, they lift my sagging spirits. When I feel down, all I need
to do, besides prayer and even during prayer, is reach out for my
favourite lines from a favorite chanteur or chanteuse, poet or writer.
They inspire me, no doubt. But that is not to say that they are
inspired themselves. They console me alright, but in the same vein,
that does not mean that they lead me without fail to the God of
consolation, no matter if what they afford me appear to be divine and
heavenly consolations. The story of Paul, too, has always moved me in
many ways. Today’s first reading is one of those high points in Paul’s
life that do not fail to tug at my rather sensitive heart. Paul is
saying goodbye. He knew he is to die soon as he writes to his beloved
disciple, Timothy. His story of fidelity and love for the Lord is an
account that people could not easily gloss over. His story moves us,
inspires us and catapults us to higher levels of resolve and
resignation to the Divine Will.
But there is more to life than merely being lifted up emotionally. We
need more than just ephemeral emotional “highs” that come and go.
Today, Paul refers precisely to this God-given resource that serves
not merely as inspiration, but as solid basis for a life lived as God
would have us do. “All Scripture is inspired of God,” Paul avers, “and
is useful for teaching — for reproof, correction and training in
holiness so that the man of God may be fully competent and equipped
for every good work.”
It is definitely good to seek for inspiration from anywhere one can
get it. But it is best to seek for the God who inspires — the God who
is behind  book “inspired of God,” no less. Fr. Chito Dimaranan, SDB

Reflection Question:
Do I seek inspiration from Scriptures?

Lord Jesus, inflame my heart and mind with Your Word.

St. Breaca, pray for us.

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.

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.

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.
