Early Morn of Maundy Thursday

I suddenly feel ashamed. I realized that the first few days of Holy Week has passed me by. And I've got to stop myself and concentrate on the coming days. It's a good thing I caught myself before I went downhill.

After my resignation, I said I was going to give God more time, but I realized that I have not really given so much time for him. I feel ashamed that I chose not to connect with Him more deeply but instead, spent my time and energy in facebook, pet society, etc. I don't judge others who did and this is coming from a promise to give Him more time and not have given it, and when it turned 12 midnight, indicating that this is Maundy Thursday, I caught myself and started to reflect. And thus, to repeat my first sentence - I feel quite ashamed.

And I suddenly asked myself. What did I really give up this Lent? I feel I have not really given up so much compared to the other years when I was still more "deep" in my relationship with Him. And that is also why I feel so ashamed.

But I'm stopping myself. Tomorrow until Sunday - it will be about HIM. I will reflect and deeply involve myself in the happenings especially day by day as we walk with Christ. After all, isn't Holy Week meant in remembrance of what our Lord has gone through?

Today, Maundy Thursday - we remember the Last Supper. We also remember Jesus suffering in the garden of Gethsemane and the feeling of abandonment that his chosen companions could not even keep watch for one hour. We remember his pain and struggle in accepting His Father's will - and finally to acceptance and bravely obeying His Father's will. We remember how Judas' betrayed our Lord for thirty silver coins. And how everything will change from that hour on. Our Lord would suffer humiliation, human suffering that I can never imagine subjecting myself into, and ultimately, His passion and death on the cross.

And while we focus on the remaining days on his suffering, it will still be a story of love and hope as we await Jesus' rising up again on Easter Sunday.

In the mean time - I shall be still and know He is God.

LP: Paboritong Litrato

Mejo matagal-tagal akong di nakapag-LP. Nagpunta ako ng Tsina nung isang linggo at nagresign naman ako sa trabaho ko. Ngayong araw lang ako nakapahinga talaga kaya buti na lang nadelay ng isang araw ang LP. :)

Ang paksa sa linggong ito’y paboritong litrato. Naku, sa dami, hindi ako makapili. Kaya pagbigyan nyo na ako at marami ang aking ipopost ngayong linggong ito.

Kuha sa Nokia 6300, ito ay kinunan ko habang kami’y nasa columbary garden kung saan namamahinga ang aking papa. Kulay brown dapat ang snail na ito, ngunit dahil pagabi na nung kinuha ko ito, mejo naging violet sya.

Ito naman ang una kong kuha macro style sa aking digicam na casio exilim. Ang saya ko nung nakuha ko ito kasi hindi sya DLSR, but it has the DLSR trademark :)

Nung ako’y nasa Tsina, ang pinakamagandang lugar na aking nakita (sa limited cities na napuntahan ko), ay ang Hangzhou. Ito naman ay kuha nung Enero (winter nila). Gusto ko bumalik dito dahil napakadaming pwedeng lugar na kumuha ng litrato!

Ito naman ang kuha kong mga “jumping” shots. :) proud ako kasi ang galing kong kumuha nito sa casio exilim ko :) ang sumunod sa makulay na “jump” shot ay aksidente lamang. natuwa kami nung nakita naming parang sinuntok nya yung kasama namin. kaya ayun, nagmala-street fighter kami. :)

At syempre, di kumpleto ang paboritong litrato kung walang scenic na litrato. ito naman ay kuha din ng casio exilim habang nasa boracay kami nuong 2008.

Happy LP everyone! :) Excited na ako s aT-shirt! :) hehehe

From Kerygma

Playing SAFE

Life is, first and foremost, life “with” someone, a life relation to the other, in relation to God, to those whom we love, and to those who love us. In our day-to-day living, it is inevitable that we find ourselves judging others and even condemning them as if we’re perfect, incapable of committing any mistakes. Why is it that people have the tendency to gawk at others’ imperfections, a transference wherein he exactly acts as a faultfinder just to justify and cover up his limitations? Over and over again, unconsciously, we fix our eyes on others’ face dirt. It is really a sad commentary that we indulge ourselves in doing things that we should not, such as gossiping and judging others, and hastily get away when the things get rough. On the other hand, we have a propensity to get infuriated when someone does the same thing to us. We tend to be self-righteous and notice the other’s speck and forget to look at ourselves first.

We also seek out for forgiveness, right? At some stage in our personal prayer, we beg for God’s forgiveness for the wrongs we have done, am I right again? Yes, it is easy to say sorry and beg for forgiveness every time we do something wrong but we become stone-hearted to accept another’s shortcomings. With that conduct, we are like the unforgiving servant in the parable. Now, I challenge you to take a look at your life: do you have an admirable relationship with others — with your family, friends, coworkers, neighbors? You may come to realize that you’re miles apart from them even though they’re just around. Learn from the parable of the unforgiving servant whom the Master has forgiven and punished later for he did not forgive his fellow servant. Let us be guided by the biblical maxim, “The measure you give will be the measure you receive back.”Fr. Joel O. Jason

Reflection Question:

The practice of abstinence in Lent is far from mere dieting or refraining from certain types of food. Why not make this Lenten season an occasion to practice spiritual abstinence from righteousness and harsh judgment?

Lord, incline my heart to forgive. Teach me to love others rather than condemn them. Amen.

St. Frances of Rome, Religious, pray for us.
