Spontaneous Love     by:   St. Peter Julian Eymard, SSS

March 29 - One who loves does not need lengthy discussions, which would be displeasing if they did occur. Of its very nature, love is spontaneous; the greater the spontaneity the greater the sign of affection. This is one of the most powerful signs of love... This rule of spontaneity is the only sign by which we can judge how great is our love for God. Again, this doesn’t mean that passions and self-love will not rebel; but if we love God, however, we will overcome all kinds of obstacles. It is very humiliating for us to be always hesitating, due to self-love, when he calls us. We weigh things, and check our pulse before committing ourselves. How human we still are! If we really loved, we would be happy to be called to his service. (SPJE Conference to the Servants, September 20, 1862)

My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?     by:   Sr. Leizle J. Pangngay, SSS

March 28 - Palm Sunday [‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’ Mark 14:1-15:47 (B)] My God, my God, why have you abandon us? In this time of pandemic, I guess this is the cry of many people especially those who have lost their loved ones, those who have lost their jobs, those who are experiencing difficulties- emotionally, psychologically, spiritually and financially. It’s been over a year (in the Philippines) since the country was put into a ‘lockdown’ mode. In the very depts of my heart, I also cry out to God… Lord, how long? How long will this pandemic end? My God, my God, have you forsaken us? Lord Jesus, you have accepted the will of the Father, you suffered much until your death, yet You never wavered in your faith and in your love to the Father. In this time of trials and suffering, increase our faith and our hope in You. Grant us the grace to see the hands of God in the midst of this pandemic. Amen.

Where Your Heart Is     by:   St. Peter Julian Eymard,

Jesus Christ wants to be loved, and he did all he could to attract our heart. Our heart lies between the promise of heaven on the one hand and the punishment of hell on the other if it does not love God. Our heart lies between Jesus Christ and the world. The choice is ours. (Conference to the Servants of the Blessed Sacrament, August 4, 1860)

The     by:   Catholic Reflection

March 27 (Saturday) - [So the chief priests and the Pharisees convened the Sanhedrin and said, “What are we going to do? This man is performing many signs. If we leave him alone, all will believe in him, and the Romans will come and take away both our land and our nation.” John 11:47–48] One beautiful truth to reflect upon within this context is that God uses all things for His glory and for the salvation of those who believe. With this meeting of the Sanhedrin, these men began to plot the death of Jesus. Eventually they used deceit, manipulation, intimidation and fear to accomplish their goal. But even though from a worldly perspective these misguided religious leaders “won,” from a divine perspective, God used their evil to bring about the greatest good the world had ever known. Through their malice, Jesus’ passion and death gave way to the new life of the Resurrection... (Excerpts form the catholic-daily- reflections.com)
