Offer no resistance to one who is evil     by:   Sr. Leizle J. Pangngay, SSS

June 14, Monday 11th week Ordinary Time – [“But I say to you, offer no resistance to one who is evil. When someone strikes you on your right cheek, turn the other one to him as well.” Matthew 5:39] When we are hurt by someone, human as we are, our initial reaction is to retaliate.

The Kingdom of God     by:   Sr. Leizle J. Pangngay, SSS

June 13, 11th Sunday in Ordinary Time – [Jesus said to the crowds: “This is how it is with the kingdom of God; it is as if a man were to scatter seed on the land and would sleep and rise night and day and through it all the seed would sprout and grow, he knows not how.” Mark 4:26–34] Almighty Father, help my heart to be a fertile soil for Your Kingdom.

June 12, Obligatory Memorial of the Immaculate Heart of Mary – (Saturday following day of the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus) [‘’…His mother kept all these things in her heart.’’ Luke 2:51b] A mother’s love is a gift from God. Mother’s love is completely invested, nurturing, sacrificial and total. This is the love our Blessed Mother has for us… Have I allowed her to love me with this perfect motherly love? Have I consecrated myself to her, choosing her as your queen and mother?

Be reconciled with your opponent     by:   Sr. Leizle J. Pangngay, SSS

June 10, Thursday 10th week Ordinary Time – [‘’…Be reconciled with your opponent quickly when you are together on the way to court…’’ Matthew 5:20-26] Jesus is encouraging me to be reconciled with my opponents. I ask myself, do I have someone whom I can not forgive? Am I holding some ill-feelings towards other people?
