Disaster and Destruction of Temples

loon churchAs if intended for the Gospel reading on the 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time, today’s Gospel talks about the destruction of the temple and the signs of the times which were the events that unfolded in the past weeks. Shown in the picture is the centuries-old church in Loon, Bohol before and after the recent earthquake that hit the province.

The Lord assured us, “Not a hair of your head shall perish. By your endurance you will gain your lives.”

Jesus I Trust in You.

On Resurrection and Marriage

7 husbands

 

 

It’s 32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time and the Gospel of St. Luke (20:27-38) talks about the woman who married 7 times, and died. Only those who are fit shall be resurrected, and the souls shall not be married again, thus picturing a different order in the next life.

Day 9, Novena to St. Faustina

st faustinaDaily Prayer:

O Jesus, who filled Blessed Faustina with profound veneration for Your boundless Mercy, deign, if it be Your Holy will, to grant me, through her intercession, the grace for which I fervently pray… (Mention your intention here.)

My sins render me unworthy of Your Mercy, but be mindful of Sister Faustina’s spirit of sacrifice and self-denial, and reward her virtue by granting the petition which, with childlike trust, I present to You through her intercession. Amen

Day 9 Prayer:

O St. Faustina, thanks to your work, Divine Mercy Sunday is now an important celebration in the Church calendar. We owe you a deep gratitude for having worked so hard that Jesus’ message of mercy may cover this world. We thank you dear Saint, for having sacrificed your life for such an important message because we easily forget that we live and exist and can enter heaven because of God’s mercy. We often live in an illusion that we are self-sufficient. We thank you for reminding us of our total dependency on God. Amen.

(3) Jesus, Divine Mercy, have mercy on us and the poor world.

(3) St. Faustina, pray for us.

Day 8 Prayer:

O St. Faustina, like Jesus, you rejoiced over sinners who returned to Him. This was the only thing that made you happy in your brief sojourn in our planet. Your only dream was to engulf the world with the fire of Divine Mercy. May we in turn work hard so that sinners may return ti the fold of Jesus! May our apostolate touch he hearts of the hardened sinners and seek the forgiving hands of Jesus. Amen.

(3) Jesus, Divine Mercy, have mercy on us and the poor world.

(3) St. Faustina, pray for us.
