The Power of Thanksgiving

2020-11-26T20:39:54+00:00November 22nd, 2020|Categories: Devotions, Invitation, Meditation, Sharings|Tags: , , |

When I was a young sister, I read a small book entitled: The Miracle of Thanksgiving. I could not remember the author's name, but this little book taught me a lesson that I carry with me up to this present time: that gratitude works wonders. And especially when the "thank you" is directed to our [...]

Happy Birthday, Mama!

Birthday of who's Mama? And who is the Mama? Today, September 8, the Catholic Church celebrates the feast of Mary's Birth. We, Catholics, indeed celebrate our Blessed Mother's birthday and we give her gifts of love and sing songs of gratitude and joy. It is just fitting and right that we call her "Mama." Our [...]

God Protects His House

I read from the Feast Magazine, June 2020 issue an article by Bo Sanchez entitled: God Protects His House. I know I am the "house" of God, the "temple of the Holy Spirit," but I have never seen it the way Bo described it. His reflection is simple but profound. Read the article. I scanned [...]

What do you have?

A few days ago, I was meditating on the Gospel of Matthew about the multiplication of the loaves. (Mt.14:17-21) This Scripture passage gives me the confidence that Jesus will multiply what little I have. If I offer them to Him, He will bless many people through them. I have also learned to believe in others' [...]

Footprint

One of my fellow sisters gave me a small stone in the shape of a footstep. She said: "Remember to follow Jesus - always!" I was so fascinated by it. It looks like a footprint. But it's only one - where is the other pair? My sister said: "Remember to follow Jesus - always!" I [...]

Mary, my Mother – and yours, too!

I was not very devoted to Mary as I was growing up. Yes, I believed in her. I accepted her as our and Jesus' Mother. But only that. Why? Maybe because I was not particularly pious. I go to Holy Mass on Sundays only now and then. I did not pray the rosary unless it [...]

The Song of Songs

The Song of Songs or the Song of Solomon is a Book in the Old Testament that is quite difficult to understand. This Book is a love-poem that speaks of God's love for his people. But it also speaks of a soul's relationship with her Lord. Every time I read this, I feel invited to get [...]

Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

The ninth day from the Solemnity of Corpus Christi (i.e., if we celebrate it on a Thursday), we celebrate the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. It is like a continuation of the celebration of Corpus Christi. Has not His Body a Heart which pumps Blood throughout our body, supplying oxygen and nutrients to our cells and [...]

On June 7, we solemnly celebrated the central mystery of our faith, namely, the Most Blessed Trinity. Thursday after this, we celebrated the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ, or what is called Corpus Christi. (Some countries celebrate this on a Sunday after Trinity Sunday). What does this Feast mean? Why do we [...]

On June 7, the Church celebrated the Solemnity of the Most Blessed Trinity, the central mystery of our faith, which also is the principal feast of our congregation. Our contemplative-missionary calling takes its origin in the mystery of the Trinity (cf. C.411). "It is our constant endeavor to glorify the triune God by responding to [...]
