Reflections


To Grieve     by:   Sr. Leizle SSS

May 26, Thursday 6th week of Easter – [“Amen, amen, I say to you, you will weep and mourn, while the world rejoices; you will grieve, but your grief will become joy.” John 16:20] To grieve over our loved ones who passed away is a natural reaction because we love. When grieving, finding comfort and consolation is seemingly difficult to grasp. When my father passed away, no words and actions could console me. I just felt tremendous sorrow and pain deep within… for some reasons it took me years to mourn and grieve for my father. It is only when I turn to God for help that I slowly begin to find peace and consolation amidst my grieving process.

the Holy Spirit     by:   Sr. Leizle, SSS

May 25, Wednesday 6th week of Easter – [Jesus said to his disciples: “I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now. But when he comes, the Spirit of truth, he will guide you to all truth.” John 16:12-15] - Jesus is the absolute Truth, His teachings, His deeds, His whole being. The truth is ‘like a solid food’ that is hard to swallow, very real and simple as it is… Am I open to what is true even if it brings discomfort? How do I welcome the truth in my life? - Jesus sends us the Holy Spirit to strengthen us as we try to witness Christ-life in our lives. Lord, grant me the docility to Your Spirit so that I may be able to do your will. Amen.

Letting Go     by:   Sr. Leizle, SSS

May 23, Tuesday 6th Week of Easter – [“But I tell you the truth, it is better for you that I go. For if I do not go, the Advocate will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you.” John 16:5-11] At one point in my life, my own personal experience of ‘letting go’ was painful. It took me a lot of courage to let go and to move on. Looking back at that experience, my act of letting go had actually paved the way for the better things to enter in my life. The practice of letting go challenges my faith and trust in God. Lord, grant me the grace of courage to let go and let You work for me. Amen.

The Advocate - Holy Spirit     by:   Sr. Leizle, SSS

May 23, Monday 6th Week of Easter – [Jesus said to his disciples: “When the Advocate comes whom I will send you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, he will testify to me. And you also testify, because you have been with me from the beginning.” John 15:26–16:4a] Almighty God I pray to increase my hope, strengthen my faith, and openness to the Spirit. Amen.

"My peace I give to you."     by:   Sr. Leizle SSS
