Tuesday of the 7th Week of Easter

John 17:1-11a

The Prayer of Jesus

OTHER HOMILY SOURCES from Marino J. Dasmarinas

2015 Reflection for May 19, Tuesday of the Seventh Week of Easter; John 17:1-11a Reflection: What is the usual method of our prayers? Is it spontaneous prayer or we follow a certain pattern when we pray? Whichever it is, what is important is we put our hearts in our prayers before God. For a prayer that connects to the heart of God is a prayer that originates from our hearts.

We read in our gospel for this Tuesday that Jesus is praying to His God His Father. It is a personal prayer for Himself and at the same time a prayer also for His disciples and the people that He dearly loved.

If Jesus prayed to God, we too ought to pray also to both of them. We pray for our personal petitions before them, for example prayers for strength to face our daily challenges. Prayers to lighten the loads that we carry, prayers for us not to store any form of hatred in our hearts and so forth.

When we pray we also unknowingly allow God to heal us because through our prayers we allow God to dwell in us. Notice that after we pray from our hearts where we don’t say a word yet we develop a connection with God. We feel light, we feel better and refreshed. Why? Because this is the miraculous effect of our prayers before God.

Let us beseech Jesus to heal us of anything that ails us. And let us beseech God to give us the gift of connection with Him and His Father whenever we pray. – Marino J. Dasmarinas

Reflection for May 10, Tuesday of the Seventh Week of Easter; John 17:1-11a

Reflection: There is a story of a man who worked hard to amass wealth. But on the course of his obsession to be wealthy he also noticed that whatever wealth that he amassed  immediately fly away from his hands.

It became a vicious cycle for him, he works hard then he ends up with nothing. Why? Because he worked with the wrong motivation, he worked for this world alone. Thus he was slowly being eaten by the materialistic and evil culture of this world.

What is your life’s motivation? Is it to live a comfortable life by way of amassing anything that is of this world? If this is your motivation that would be catastrophic, for anything of this world is of this world. Anyone that loves the things of this world is already imprisoned to the curse of this world.

Jesus lived in this world not to become a citizen of this world. He lived in this world only to fulfill the will of God for HIM and that is to give His very own life for our sake. Jesus knew that He would gain nothing if HE favors this world over HIS fidelity to HIS mission of salvation.

What are you living for in this world? Do you live in this world for you to become a citizen of this world alone? – Marino J. Dasmarinas

Reflection for Tuesday May 30, Seventh Week of Easter: John 17:1-11a

What is the usual method of our prayers? Is it spontaneous prayer or we follow a certain pattern when we pray? Whichever it is, what is important is we put our hearts in our prayers before God. For a prayer that connects with God is a prayer that originates from our hearts.

We read in our gospel for this Tuesday that Jesus is praying before God. It is a personal prayer for Himself and at the same time a prayer also for His disciples and the people that He dearly loved.

If Jesus prayed to God, we too ought to pray also to God. We pray for our personal petitions before Him. For example prayers for strength to face our daily challenges. Prayers for enlightenment, prayers for us not to store any form of hatred in our hearts and so forth.

When we pray we also allow God to heal us with our sickness most especially emotional and spiritual sickness. This is for the reason that through our prayers we allow God to dwell and move within us. Notice that after you pray you feel light and you feel better.

Let us beseech God to heal us of anything that ails us. And let us beseech God to give us the grace of connection with Him whenever we pray. – Marino J. Dasmarinas
