BREAD OF LIFE: JESUS’ CONTENTMENT DARE

Ex 16:2-4.12-15; Ps 78;Eph 4:17. 20-24; Jn 6:24-35

A FABLE ON CONTENTMENT

I would like to share with you a popular Hindu parable which I learned when I was still new in the seminary. This parable is about a stone-cutter who was working on a piece of stone in the fields and he was sweating it out, trying to get a piece of stone from a big boulder.  And then a king passed by. The stone cutter thought to himself, “Oh how I wish I were a King!” The Lord answered His prayers. And from being a stone­cutter this man was transformed into a King!

He was soon dressed like a King. And as he was moving around his kingdom, it was very warm because the sun was scorching hot. He realized that even if he was already a powerful king, he could not do anything about the sun! So he told God, “Lord, I don’t want to be King anymore! It seems the sun is more powerful than a King, I want to be a sun!” So he became the sun. Very Hot! And he was making everybody perspire! Until one day, clouds passed by and overpowered the heat of the sun.

              So this man said, “Lord, I don’t want to be a sun anymore; make me into clouds, because it seems that the clouds are more powerful than the sun!” So the clouds were sailing theskies very gracefully, and beautifully; until they became very heavy. The clouds became water; and the clouds became rain! So he thought that he was still very powerful because there was a big flood on earth. Until he saw that there was still something that was left unmoved in spite of the great floods he has caused! And it was a piece of stone.

              Then he said, “It seems that the stone is more powerful than the rain, the water, and the flood! Lord, I want to be a big stone.” And after he became a big stone, he saw that there was a stone cutter who was more powerful than the stone. So he said, “Lord, I don’t want to be a stone anymore, I just want to be a stone-cutter.”

We can have plenty of reasons to be discontented. We can have plenty of reasons to complain. We will not run out of reasons to complain. But let me tell you, if we have ten ‘ reasons to complain, there are certainly more than a hundred reasons to be grateful. And yet we are people who love to complain. And yet we are a people who always tend to neglect appreciating the good in each other.

The Jews were not very far from that. The Jews were fed, five thousand men of them, by the Lord. And they admired the Lord for performing such a wonderful miracle. And then, they were starting to recognize that there was something special about this Jesus! Their typical Jewish rabbis, teachers and preachers were not doing the things Jesus was doing. And so they told Jesus, “You know, if you are really the Messiah, Moses gave us mannah in the desert. If you are the Messiah, you should give us mannah also; because that is the sign of the messiah!”

The Lord said, “I am the bread come down from heaven. I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never be hungry; he who believes in me shall not thirst.” But what did the Jews say, “NO! We know your family; we know where you come from. You cannot be the messiah! We don’t believe in you!”

The Jews chose to be discontented rather than see the wonderful signs the Lord has done for them. Would it not be true that we complain too much. We see faults in each other too much. We see faults in our friends too much, that we forget that we have been blessed that, we forget that we have more reasons to be grateful, to be thankful to God for.

Have you ever seen a carabao? In the Philippines, many of our farmers still use carabaos for their farming. Of course we don’t see carabaos in the city. I grew up in a city so I don’t know much about carabaos. But a priest friend who has spent his childhood in the rural fields, his father being a farmer, told me something special about their carabaos. They  had two carabaos which they kept at the back of their farm­house. To keep their carabaos within the limits of their property, his father set up barbed-wire fences around. The carabaos had more than enough green grasses to eat within their back yard. This friend of mine told me that every morning he would always see these two carabaos sticking their head out between the barbed-wire fences. Trying to eat the grass outside the yard. The grass looks always greener at the other side of the fence.

There is always a temptation even for us human beings to think that “others are better than I am;” “others are more fortunate than I am;” that “God loves them more than He loves me;” “they have all the blessings in the world while I have all the reasons to complain.”

We have a strong message from St. Paul in his letter to the Ephesians in the second reading. He says: “I want to urge you in the name of the Lord, not to go on living the aimless kind of life that the pagans live. You must give up your old way of life; you must put aside your old self which gets corrupted by following illusory desires.” What St. Paul is trying to tell us is that: it is our illusory desires that make us want to complain. And again, all these illusions are but caused by our short-sightedness. The closer we are to being blind, the greater is our desire for visual, material, physical signs.

And the good news is that God recognizes this short-sigh­tedness. You want a more visible sign? You want a more physical sign? I give you my son, in flesh and blood! BUT like the Jews in the time of Jesus, all our illusory desires have kept us blind to the very person of Jesus Himself!

Jesus repeats the good news for us in the gospel this Sunday: “Do not work for food that perishes but for food that endures.” And what Jesus is saying can be summed up in a single sentence: The human heart has a hunger and thirst that nothing on earth can satisfy.

It’s a lesson that we must learn, if we are ever to find true happiness. Fame and fortune, all the wealth in this material world, promise to fill the void, the hole, the emptiness in the human heart.  But in the end they leave the heart more hungry, more thirsty, more short-sighted, and ever more complaining, than it was before!

Let us pray for the grace to overcome our persistence in complaining, in fault-finding, in being unhappy with our situation. At the same time let us ask the Lord for the grace to think positively, for the grace to see the reasons why we should be happy and why we should be grateful, let us ask God to open our eyes to the blessings we have received and to the blessings we still fail to see because we are a people who love to grumble, we are a people who love to complain.

Jesus dares us to live in contentment –  content with the fact the we have Him, the Bread of Life. He alone suffices!

GOD BLESS YOU WITH CONTENTMENT!

17th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year B 25 July 2021

Lunch Box Spirituality: The Heart of the Missions

Spirituality is that which animates a person’s life of faith; that which moves a person’s faith to greater depths and perfection. In today’s story of Jesus’ miraculous feeding of the multitude, we briefly encounter an anonymous boy who generously volunteered his lunch box.

    He gave all that he had to Jesus and that was the beginning of one of the greatest miracles man has ever known. Let us draw inspiration from this lunch box giving. This, after all, is the very heart of our mission.

              In computer science there was the so-called GIGO principle: Garbage In, Garbage Out – the integrity of the output is dependent on the integrity of the input. The computer can only work with the information I feed into it. If I feed it junk, I’ll get back junk. Your lunchbox is your responsibility!

              Let us go to another science, electricity. On September 11, 2003, The Guardian, reported “Britain’s biggest blackout for 25 years, which plunged large parts of London into darkness, was the result of a one amp fuse being fitted in place of a 5,000 amp fuse at a substation.” The fuse, described as shoebox-sized or about the size of a child’s lunch box, naturally blew up! All the electrical power of that entire region passed through that single fuse! Without that fuse box, no power could reach any point in that vast region! Without that fuse box, an entire city can be in darkness, total darkness! Isn’t that amazing? How a fuse box, the size of a child’s lunch box, can be so important as to affect the life of thousands of people!

              Now let us go to the science of theology. It is not very difficult to see the connections here. The so-called golden rule, which applies to practically all the religions in the world, says: “Do unto others what you would like them to do unto you.” That is to say, the measure you give is the measure you receive. You sow the seeds of hatred in your family, you sow anger in your community, you reap the fruits of anger, hatred and hostility just the same, well-shaken and flowing over. On the hand, if you sow the seeds of respect for life, respect for human dignity, if you sow the seeds of right attitude toward everybody regardless ofrace, color, creed and physical well-being,you reap a harvest of peace, joy and harmony. And as we said, most religions apply this golden rule one way or the other.

              Confucianism speaks of the principles of “Li” and “Jen.” It says that if one acts in a way that is externally proper, one reaps the internal virtue called “Ren” or “Jen” which will develop with one’s external behavior.

The golden (also silver) rule of Confucius is called the Shu [reciprocity] principle: Never impose on others what you would not choose for yourself.”

Taoism on the other hand insists on interiority and harmony with nature; it believes that what you sow internally, you will reap externally. This principle is called Wu wei (simplified Chinese: 无为; traditional Chinese: 無爲; pinyin: wúwéi) which literally means “without action,” often expressed by the paradox wei wu wei, meaning “action through inaction”. Taoist philosophy proposes that the universe works

harmoniously according to its own ways. So, when someone exerts his will against the world, he disrupts that harmony (the yin-yang principle). Man must therefore place his will in harmony with the natural universe.

              Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism have the Karmic principle which states that when you do something good there is an inevitable call for a reward. But if you do something bad there is an inescapable call for punishment.

              But what about Christianity? What do we have? This is where we are totally different. Why? Because Christianity is not only a philosophy. Jesus was not only a thinker; in fact we neither call him a philosopher nor a theologian. He is God made man in whom there is no such thing as a destructive principle. Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. He is the Door, the Gate, and indeed, the only LINK, the one fuse box as it were, between God and Humanity. And without Him we are in total darkness.

              And Jesus said something more than the Golden Rule. He did not only say that what you give is what you get! Rather, the totality of His teaching is: Give all you’ve got to give out of love, and God will take care of the rest! Give without counting the cost! Give without expecting anything in return! And He taught this not by writing a book, but by living it and giving it without measure so that we may have life to the full!

              In today’s gospel, Jesus tested Philip with a question: “Where can we buy some bread for these people to eat?” Philip failed the test when He answered: “Two hundred days’ wages worth of food would not be enough for each of them to have a little.” Inside Philip’s “lunchbox” was the material concern of what money can buy.

              Andrew almost hit the right answer by volunteering a boy’s lunchbox. Almost. That was a good enough answer from an apostle – an enabling, encouraging agent. But, again, almost right. Later he added, “but what good are these for so many?” That was the failure! He doubted the power of the boy’s “little gift” of love. Andrew carried “doubts” in his “lunchbox.”

Who passed the test? The silent little boy. The little boy offered all he had and that was enough for God to feed the entire flock that followed him.

What Jesus did for the hungry crowd, He also wants to do for people today. He wants to feed the hungry millions of our world. But Jesus needs a little child of God in each of us to give Him a few loaves and fish to start the miracle. He needs you and me to give Him our lunch boxes. But the question is: In our years of being Christians, being Catholics, what have we been keeping in our lunch boxes? Material concerns? Reliance on what our money can buy? Ambitions of making more money? What have we been keeping in your lunch boxes all these years? Doubts about God’s power in our lives? Complaints about God’sgenerosity?Whathas been our Daily Bread all these years?

              After reading today’s gospel, the Pope said to the young people of Scotland in 1982: “The boy gave all he had and Jesus miraculously fed 5,000 people… It is exactly the same with your lives…Place your lives in the hands of Jesus. He will accept you and bless you…beyond your greatest expectations.”

God Bless You!

16th Sunday OT-B – July 18, 2021

Jer 23:1-6; Ps 23; Eph 2:13-18; Mk 6:30-34

“Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.”- Mk 6:31

COME AND REST A WHILE

Part 1: A Second Look at Prayer

How do you spend your day of rest and recreation? Surely the images of the beach, the pool, the games, the movies, the malls, and the bed, among other things come up immediately. Okay, that is the first look. Valid naman yang mga yan e. But let me offer you a side-b to r&r. Indeed, our r&r’s deserve a “second look.” Jesus invited His apostles to take r&r time. Not very clear whether He was with them or not, just by reading the one-liner invitation. You’d realize soon if you continue reading the passage that He went with them to rest and re-create hoping to leave behind temporarily the missionary activities. Rest and Recreation with God is prayer. K.J. ba ‘yon? If you are a Christian, it should not be. It’s a must.

Five Moments & Elements of Prayerful Rest

Re-Flection [Identity] (to reflect is to humble oneself and give a careful consideration of one’s identity; flectereto bend; to humble oneself)

“An un-reflected life is a life not worth living.”

 – Socrates (Classical Greek philosopher, c. 469 BC–399 BC)

Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action.”

– Peter F. Drucker (American Educator and Writer, 1909-2005)

“By three methods we may learn wisdom: first, by reflection, which is noblest; second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.”

 – Confucius (Chinese thinker and social philosopher, 551 – 479 BC)

Make sure that in yourSunday’s rest and recreation considerable time is dedicated to reflection. Review your past week’s experiences, describe, analyse, evaluate and inform your learning to prepare you for more effective action in the following week.

Re-Habitation [Vision and Purpose] (to come home again; habitareto dwell) Rehabitation is not in the dictionary. I made it up to convey a prayerful desire to come home to God to be renewed and re-created into a being fully human and live, at peace with one’s own humanity. It is coming home to one’s vision and purpose in life. No single word seems to capture it.  I think a beautiful coming home prayer is

The Serenity Prayer

by Reinhold Niebuhr (American theologian, 1892-1971)

God, give us grace to accept with serenity the things that cannot be changed; Courage to change the things  which should be changed, and the Wisdom to distinguish the one from the other.

Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace; Taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is,

Not as I would have it; trusting that You will make all things right if I surrender to Your will;

So that I may be reasonably happy in this life,

and supremely happy with You forever in the next.   Amen.

♥ Indeed, a coming home desire is expressed by our Psalm 23 today: Only goodness and kindness follow me all the days of my life; and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord for years to come.

Re-Habilitation [Empowerment] (to be enabled again, to be reaffirmed; habilitareto enable)

♥ If it were to re-create our being, R&R should empower, envigorate, re-build our spirits too!

Remember, God created the world by affirming it, giving it His good powerful words: Let there be…!

“Belief consists in accepting the affirmations of the soul; unbelief, in denying them.”-  Ralph Waldo Emerson (American essayist, philosopher and poet, 1803–1882)

“A joyful heart is the health of the body, but a depressed spirit dries up the bones.” (Prov 17:22, NAB)

 “For as he thinks within himself, so he is.” (Prov 23:7, New American Standard Bible)

♥ What we think, we’ll eventually say and what we say is very powerful. We can speak words of life and we can speak words of cursing. The Bible tells us to guard our thoughts and mouths.

♥ Your Sunday’s day of R&R with your family and loved ones should not pass without you being re-affirmed by God: “You are mine!” and without you giving out affirmations to those around you. Then make it your daily re-hab program: empowering and enabling others thru affirmation. 

Re-Conciliation [Relationships] (to establish close relationships again; conciliareto call together; Gk kalein [variant klē-], to call; its suffix form kal-e is found in the word ecclesia, church.)

♥ Our 1st reading this Sunday refers to this gathering aspect of re-conciliation:

I myself will gather the remnant of my flock from all the lands to which I have driven them and bring them back to their meadow; there they shall increase and multiply. (Jer 23:3)

♥ While our 2nd reading points out the relationship aspect of re-conciliation:

In Christ Jesus you, who once were far off, have become near by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace… (Eph 2:13-14a)

♥ Sunday or any given day for R&R should be a day of reconciliation- a day of re-establishing connection with God and others. After all, life is nothing but relationships. Especially on a Sunday, coming to church is not just to fulfil an obligation. It is to renew relationships with God and one another. And this renewal calls for a celebration.

Re-Think and Re-Thank [Mission] Two different words: To think (in this context of rest) is to call to mind or remember. To thank is to express gratitude to. However, both verbs have the same root word! According to The American Heritage Dictionary they both come from the Old English thanc, meaning: thought, good will; and thancian, to thank, from Germanic thankaz, thought, gratitude, and thankōn, to think of, thank.

♥ What is this last moment and element of Prayerful Rest telling us? Two things: First, that the Eucharist (thanksgiving) is an active engagement of the mind (memory). The first thing we carry with us to the Eucharistic celebration, therefore, is a memory – a memory of your graces & blessings (including those that are disguised). Second, that in all our prayers (the Eucharist being the highest form of prayer), our thoughts, good will and gratitude are a must. Don’t pray without them. Whether these thoughts or memories are not “good” enough, or they may even be “hurting” ones, it doesn’t matter. Lift them all up unto the hands of God, Siya na ang bahala! Just don’t “pray” mindlessly, thoughtlessly! Do not babble as pagans do. Sayang ang opportunity mo.

Part 2: “Hook” on Prayer

     Hook is a 1991 family fantasy film directed by Steven Spielberg. It acts as a sequel to Peter Pan’s adventures, focusing on a grown-up Peter Pan who has forgotten his childhood. Peter Banning is a successful corporate lawyer with a wife and two children. Captain Hook kidnaps his two children, thus Peter Banning must return to Neverland and reclaim his youthful spirit as Peter Pan in order to challenge his old enemy.

     Clearly, the movie is not about prayer. It is not even religious nor spiritual. But years ago, when I saw it while on a plane coming back home to the Philippines, it made me reflect on ‘my own coming home’ – incidentally, I was literally flying home! I saw in Hook bits and pieces of my life, and maybe yours too, dramatized by Peter Pan Banning: of our struggles with growing up, with owning our shadows and with prayer in general. The clip highlights some of these moments.

Sólo Dios basta

“Let nothing disturb you, let nothing cause you fear. All things pass. God is unchanging. Patience obtains all: Whoever has God needs nothing else.  God alone suffices.”

This poem, found as a bookmark in St. Teresa’s prayer book, tells of her complete trust in God. Read this “bookmark” several times as a way of readying your head, heart and hands to receive and send the happiest of thoughts: God Alone Suffices! ♥

15th Sunday – OT- B – July 11, 2021

Am 7:12-15; Ps 85; Eph 1:3-14; Mk 6:7-13

TRAVELLING LIGHT

He instructed them to take nothing for the journey but a walking stick – no food, no sack, no money in their belts. Mk 6: 8

HOW TO TRAVEL LIGHT

1º  Look Into your Issues.

List the problems and conflicts that have surfaced in your life.

     √ Prioritize the issues that bother you most. Issues that eat up your time and energies leaving you emotionally and mentally drained and spiritually weak. How has your emotional and spiritual health been affected by the weight of these issues? How about your physical health?   

     √Nagkakasakit ka na ba dahil sa mga ito? O kaya, ikaw ba ay nakapag-dudulot ng sakit sa iba dahil sa mga ito?

     √ The issues may be long buried in the many years of pretences, denials and rejection, so you may spend some time going through them – sometimes, painfully.

     √ Do this, then, in prayer.

2º  Lift Up Your Baggage to God

       ♥ In Prayer

It is my wish, then, that in every place the men should pray, lifting up holy hands, without anger or argument. – 1 Tm 2:8

In his letter to Timothy, Paul stresses that the prayer of the community should be unmarred by internal dissension. In this second step, we are invited to lift up our all our crippling and heavy baggage to God in praying hands.

Take your list with you at prayer time. Pray for each person concerned, for each situation or issue. Not just mouthing them without thought, but intending each one by using your imagination and memory. This is an important note especially when we are used to pray vocally or even pray with mental words without the engagement of our memories and imagination. If remembering makes our thanksgiving effective, so does memory makes healing efficacious too, coupled with God’s grace!

If you find praying at this “burdened time” difficult, which is normal, ask someone, a friend, a counsellor, a priest, who can assist you in your initial prayers. Better still, approach the Sacrament of Reconciliation and ask for the priest’s guidance. It may help too to choose your priest, if a bit of counselling will be sought.

♥ In Love

         There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear… 1 Jn 4:18

         √  What fears surface when you think about giving up control of those situations? Why is it tempting to hang on to them? It can happen that the only satan (stumbling block) for your letting go is your fear. Conquer this fear! How? By love, God’s love.

         √  As you lift up the baggage to God, let your head, heart and hands remain open as you receive God’s gift of faith, hope and love (they can only come from Him, that’s why they are called theological virtues.) Kapag empty handed ka, dangerous! The devil can fill in your emptiness right away! Love will make sure that the fear will be driven out and protect your soul.

 3º  Listen to the Instructions of God

         √  Release. Release those situations to God’s control, one at a time while humbly asking the Lord to fill you with His truth and wisdom.

         √   Wait. Instead of rushing ahead to your own solutions for each situation, practice the skill of waiting for Him to give you direction.

  Consult your counsellor or spiritual director or confessor with regards to the fruits of your prayer discernment. Be open and honest. A good guide will not offer you solutions but will only open doors and windows and avenues, in fact, new horizons for you to see, touch, feel, taste and explore. 

4º Humble Your Self.

Grace of God: God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.- Jms 4:6b

Obedience: Jesus humbled himself, becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross. – Phil 2:8

Rest: Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for your selves. Mt 11:29

Greatness: Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.Mt 18:4

Exaltation in due time:

      Whoever exalts himself will be humbled; but whoever humbles himself will be exalted.- Mt 23:12.

     So humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time. -1Pt 5:6

 Notice the Greek word for “exalted”=  ὑψωθήσεται (upsōthēsetai =will be exalted). This is from hupsos (hoop-so’-os), meaning “to elevate (literally or figuratively), to exalt, lift up.

Humility is therefore a key element if we want to travel light! God’s hands elevate us, lift us up to His very bosom!

5º Throw off Excess Baggage

Throw off every burden and sin that clings to us and persevere in running the race that lies before us. – Hebrews 12:1

Jesus defends the woman caught in adultery from her persecutors and commands her: “Go, and from now on do not sin any more.” – Jn 8:11

Let us do the same. God bless you in your journey!
