THE WORD OF THE LORD

Gospel    MT 5:1-12A

When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain, and after he had sat down, his disciples came to him. He began to teach them, saying: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the land.

Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the clean of heart, for they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.

Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you falsely because of me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven.”




Prayer for the Parish

Loving God, you gather us as a people of the new covenant sealed with the blood of your beloved

Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.

You formed us into a community of faith,
hope and love; a priestly, prophetic and kingly people. Humbly we ask you, make our parishes truly a communion of communities; a worshipping
community, a witnessing and an evangelizing
community, and a servant community.

Guide our pastors, the religious and lay leaders,
and all those who labor in the parish, with
your wisdom and love. Bless all the parishioners
who compose the parish and BEC’s, as they offer
their time, talents and treasures as stewards
of the graces you gifted us, for the building up
of your Church. May the Holy Spirit enlighten,
inspire and invigorate us to actively participate
in the mission you entrusted to us in the parish.

May we continue to be a discerning community,
reading the signs of the times and interpreting them in the light of the Gospel. May we truly become the leaven in society by penetrating all its strata with the Gospel and restoring its order according to the values of the Kingdom. And may the spirit of collaboration and co-responsibility bring us into a fuller and fruitful communion with you and with one another. We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

May we truly become the leaven in society by
penetrating all its strata with the Gospel and
restoring its order according to the values of the Kingdom. And may the spirit of collaboration and co-responsibility bring us into a fuller and fruitful communion with you and with one another.


We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

SURAT KI FATHER

Dear Father,

Tano ta kaipuhan po magin miyembro nin parokya?  Puede man po baga magpalipat-liwat nin parokya.

Minagalang, Stella

Dear Stella,

Totoo, dakul asin madali sana an magpalipat-liwat nin parokya.  Alagad kaipuhan romdomon na kita, dawa sa bagong tipan (new testament) inaapod na magin sarong banwaan, sarong simbahan, sarong comunidad. Liwat uliton niato an awit: ‘Daing siisay man ang nabubuhay para sa sadiri sana.’  Siring man yaon sa naturaleza nin tawo an makipag-kapwa (social nature). An lambang saro sato miyembro nin familia asin nin comunidad -arog kan sosyedad.

An obligasyon niato bako sana para sa sadiri, kundi para sa kapwa asin sa comunidad. Siring man, an Simbahan -sa paagi kan parokya igua nin katongdan na pangatamanan an salud kan mga kalag asin tawan nin magkakanigong atensyon an pagtalubo kan mga paratubod.

Kaya man an sarong teritoryo itinatalaga sa pangataman nin sarong obispo; dyocesis an apod kaini. An sarong dyocesis binibilog nin mga parokya, na pinapamayohan nin padi or cura parroco. An mga familia na yaon sa sarong particular na teritoryo iyo man an minabilog kan parokya.

Sa laog kan parokya inaako an mga sakramento. An sarong omboy o sarong persona nagigin miyembro kan parokya sa paagi kan bonyag -na iyo an enot na sakramento na inaako.

Sa parokya asin sa cura parroco itinatao an pangataman espiritwal kan mga parokyano. An bonyag iyo kutana an pag-rehistro kan sarong bagong miyembro sa parokya asin sa simbahan. Alagad aram ta man sana na puedeng magpabonyag sa ibang lugar, pati na man an pag-ako kan ibang sakramento.  

An pangataman yaon sa cura parroco, kun kaya minahagad nin permiso sa pag-ako nin ibang sakramento, arog baga kan kasal, sa sadiring parokya.  Siring man an tawag (marriage banns) sa pagkasal ginigibo sa sadiring parokya. Huli ta sa sadiring parokya midbid man an mga kakasalon.

Alagad sa ngonian, kaipuhan man niatong midbidon na dakul na mga parokyano an dai namamate na sinda miyembro kan parokya.  Nagsisimba man an iba alagad sagkod sa pagsimba sana an pagpartisipar sa buhay kan parokya.  Sarong dahelan kaini iyo na kun minsan kulang man an programa sa parokya tanganing makapagpartisipar an mga miyembro.

Alagad padagos na inaagyat an mga parokyano na maghiras kan saindang kakayahan, kayamanan asin panahon tanganing padagos pang magtalubo an parokya.

Digdi sa Arkidyocesis kan Caceres padagos an pagmukna nin mga bagong parokya, boot sabihon mga bagong comunidad nin mga Catolico.  Nagsasakit an sakop nin saro asin pinapadarhan nin padi tanganing orog na masimbagan an mga pangangaipo espiritwal kan mga tawo.

An pag bilang kan mga miyembro nin bagong parokya susog man sa mga residente nin sarong teritoryo.

An pagcelebrar niato kan Year of the Parish pangapodan man sato na padagos na magtrabaho para sa pagtalubo kan satong mga comunidad.  Salamat sa saimong hapot.

Minagalang, Father
