5th Sunday In Ordinary Time

How would you feel if you stop your car at a traffic light, and  suddenly a stranger hopped in?  He gives you orders — “Turn left… slow down… that way..”   You would naturally feel confused and perhaps frightened.  That is probably was how St. Peter felt when Jesus suddenly hopped into his boat and began giving him orders.  Fortunately, St. Peter chose to obey Jesus’ orders and enjoyed the blessings he received for following him.  Based on the readings of Isaiah 6: 1-8; 1 Corinthians 15: 1-11; & Luke 5: 1-11.

4th Sunday In Ordinary Time

The gospel today talks about how Jesus experienced rejection from people, even in his hometown.  Most, if not all of us have also experienced rejection and it is often a painful experience.  Jesus understands our pain and He gives a  good example of what we should do.  Based on the readings of Jeremiah 1: 4-19; 1 Corinthians 12: 31-13:13; & Luke 4: 21-30

3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Why did the people weep as narrated in the 1st reading?  They felt sad because they realized they had been ignorant of God’s laws.  But then they chose to rejoice because they were no longer in the darkness of ignorance.  Likewise, Jesus wants to deliver us from the darkness of sin, indifference, and ignorance.  Based on the readings of Nehemiah 8: 2-10; 1 Corinthians 12: 12-30; & Luke 1: 1-21.

2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

For the vlog today, Fr. MD chose to focus on the second reading.  We all have different gifts from God to help us serve Him and other people.  With all these different gifts put together, we can make a difference in the world.  Based on the readings of Isaiah 62: 1-5; 1 Corinthians 12: 4-11; & John 2: 1-11.

Baptism of the Lord

Fr. MD, in this vlog, shares his reflection on God’s words to Jesus: “You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.”  If we truly believe that God loves us and that He is happy with us, we will feel more motivated to serve Him and other people.  Let’s watch the vlog to find out more.  Based on the readings of Isaiah 42: 1-7; Acts 10: 34-38; & Luke 3: 15-22
