I have combined two elements for this week’s bulletin, since the one should be along with the other; the Fall which refers to our ‘breaking’ with God through our sins and, the Redemption, which is the effort of Christ’s “restoring” back this broken relationship through his death on the cross.

One of my favorite story in the Gospel is the Parable of the Prodigal Son, it may have a particular contextual background yet it can relate to all, and I am able to relate my own experience.  It came to a point where I cannot understand my parents how they wanted me to be; I want to do things which they disagree while insisting on what I do not want. As a sign of resistance, I left home and that hurt my parents so much, especially my mom. My parents never stop looking for me from the day I went out of our house until they were able to find where I was. I was so sorry, I’ve been a very stubborn kid, I was only thinking of myself and have been inconsiderate with the goodness my parents’ thinking for me. From the moment I entered our house after that ‘running away from home’, I felt that love all the more from my parents. I remain being their son and everything have been forgotten.

 

We may hurt God again and again but nothing will change, we will still be His child, we just need to regret our failures. Every time God accepts us once again, we will always experience that difference He is making in our lives.

 

Fr. Francis, m.f.

 


The Mass: A slice at a Time - The Liturgical Year

 Symbols are used in telling story. The Holy Mass is a big story with many small stories in it. Now that we are soon to celebrate the Thanksgiving dinner, let’s take a look at these two celebrations and see the similarity between them. 

Maybe many of us may think of Thanksgiving dinner just as a meal itself. Nope, there is more to it than just eating. We can think of Thanksgiving as having four parts. Everyone gathers at Grandma’s house; as we gather, we chat with each other, tell stories, and catch up on family news; then we eat; and finally, we all return home, reunited as a family. Similarly, the Sunday Mass has four parts: Introduction: A) God gathers the people; B) God speaks to the people; C) The people thank God; D) The people go out to do God’s work.
