What kind of bread are you?
Brothers and sisters in Christ, let us ask for the grace to become a bread that nourishes, energizes, and satisfies the needs of others, especially the most abandoned. We pray that like Philip, we may help others to understand the will of God in this trying times; that you and I will give the same…
Come and be filled today
Today, we are called by the Lord to humbly recognize our own hunger and thirst that keep us away for others and from God. What are those that keep me selfish and self-serving? When we are able to recognize them, Jesus invites us “to come to him.” WHAT JESUS SAID TO THE JEWS, HE IS…
What profit will I gain in believing in you, God?
Many times, we have also this kind of attitude. This is an attitude similar to a “linta” a blood sucking insect. We relate and make friends with others for the sake of getting something from them. Indeed, there might be many of us who would use other people, friends and even family members, to get…
Friendship with Jesus leads to commitment
This is now the invitation for us today – we are called to build a closer relationship with Jesus, a friendship with Jesus, because faith is basically a relationship founded in a commitment. We do not believe in God just because we want to be treated like babies, feeding us and pampering our egos. This…
RECOGNIZING JESUS IN THE MANY BREAKING OF THE BREAD TODAY

Go and Share Jesus today
This joy of being with Jesus is what made Mark and his community to write down their memory of Jesus so that others will also be able to experience the joy that they have tasted.
When a small act of generosity makes a difference
The Lord invites us today to be generous with what we have, no matter how small or inadequate it may be in our eyes and for others. Just like in the Gospel, the Lord needs our participation, our small contribution so that he too can work wonders through us and through our small acts of…
Waiting for your RATION? Let the Spirit fill you up
We might be waiting for our food ration to arrive, but there is this vital gift that is waiting to be received by us. The gift of Easter, this gift of the Spirit that the Gospel tells us is abundantly gifted to us. God does not ration the gift of the Spirit. God gives the…
Am I being imprisoned too?
Let us be more reflective and discerning of these things and ask the grace from the Risen Christ to enlighten us. Pray, that we may be able to see and recognize the areas of our life where we are being imprisoned. Pray, that we may be free and become the person and community that we…
