A Thought for the Day     by:   Sr. Leizle, SSS

May 10, Tuesday, 4th week of Easter – [‘My sheep hear my voice and I know them; they follow me and I give them eternal life. They shall never perish and no one will ever steal them from me.’’ John 10:22-30] As a baptized Christian, I became part of God’s family. I am marked by God as His own. Thus, no evil can snatch me out from God’s hands.

May 9, Monday, 4th week of Easter – [‘’I am the Good Shepherd… I lay down my life in order to take it up again. No one takes is up for me, I lay it down freely… John 10:11-18] Jesus' love for us is beyond our thoughts and imaginations. In a very concrete way, He died for us, redeeming us back to the Father. Whenever I meditated and contemplated God's love, I couldn't help but move to tears because only in Him that I can find such great love… Thank you Lord for loving me!

The Good Shepherd     by:   Sr. Leizle SSS

May 8, The Good Shepherd Sunday [“Jesus said, “My sheep hear my voice; I know them and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish.’ John 10:27-30 (C)] I ponder on Jesus, the Good Shepherd who loves his flock dearly. Looking at the crucifix, there I find the concrete way of Jesus’ expression of love- He suffered and died on the cross. His shepherding love led Him to suffer greatly and to lay His life down so that we could be saved. Jesus was not afraid to die for us, because His love was perfect. As a follower of Jesus Christ, I am also called to imitate His sacrificial love for others in my daily life. To do this, I am challenged to overcome my selfish tendency, to practice charity by putting others before me. Afterall, love is not only experiencing heartwarming moments with others but first and foremost, love is about being sacrificial.

'Lord, to whom shall I go?'     by:   Sr. Leizle, SSS

May 7, Saturday, 3rd week of Easter – [‘’Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of everlasting life. We now believe and know that you are the Holy One of God.’’ John 6:60-69] In my early years of formation in religious life, there were several times that I was tempted to give up and leave the formation. But whenever I bring it to prayer and talk sincerely and honestly to God, I always end up with this words, ‘Lord, to whom shall I go, you have the words of everlasting life, and in you I found the meaning of my life…’’ And with that conviction, I’ve found the strength to continue moving forward to the path I have chosen.

May 6, Friday, 3rd week of Easter – [‘’those who eat my flesh and drink my blood, live in me, and I in them.’’ John 6:52-59] Thank you Lord for the gift of the Eucharist. As I receive You in the Holy Communion, may your Body and Blood transform me into your likeness, Amen.
