PREFERENCE


What do you prefer, money or spouse? A question posed to a group of friends and the answer came from someone who said that money is more preferred because as time passes by, it gains interest if invested, while a spouse, as time goes by loses interest.

When in his discourse, Jesus offered his own Body and Blood as food and drink for eternal life, his words were too hard for his listeners to bear which resulted in their walking away from him including his own disciples who returned to their former way of life. He then turned to Peter and said; “ Do you also want to leave? Peter answered; “ Lord, where shall we go? You have the words of eternal life”.

Jesus firmly stood his ground about the truth of his message. He was offering them a good measure and preference for a better life, in fact eternal life, but their minds were too preoccupied with their agenda of fulfilling their physical and personal satisfaction. On one hand, we cannot deny the fact that our merciful Lord has given us and continues to give us many blessings and opportunities for a better life. He guided us through tough times and lifted our spirits when we were down, stressed and distressed. He is always there for us because he loves and cares for us. On the other hand he also sends crosses to carry as a test of our faith and trust in his mercy. Some avoid, evade and complain, while others carry them to atone for their sins. Truly, good things come to those who believe, better things come to those who are patient and the best ones come to those who don’t give up.

It is a very sad scene to imagine the Jesus being deserted by his own disciples despite his good intentions to improve their lives. Perhaps we too can recall a time when we were abandoned by friends in our time of need, betrayed by someone we trust or cheated behind our back. There are “fair weather” friends who come to us when we are in sunshine of our life but they disappear when we are going downhill in our life. As it has been said many times and in many ways that; “ In prosperity friends know you, but in adversity you know your friends”.  Loyalty cannot be bought, it is earned and the process is not instant but takes time. True love and faithfulness are twins. Life is delicate and love is an unconditional commitment to an imperfect person. To love somebody isn’t just a strong feeling but a decision, a judgement and a promise.

On the flip side, there are also true and faithful friends who stand by us in times of need and in moments of crises. True friends come in when everyone else has gone out. I’d rather prefer to face life’s big challenges with the Lord beside me than to have serenity without Him. Recall the occurrence in the Sea of Galilee when the boat of the Apostles with Jesus aboard was being tossed about by strong winds but it did not sink. Keep Jesus in your heart and you don’t have to look far when you need Him We must believe that everything we asked God will be answered for He has His own preferred way to answer our prayer. As it has been said that preferring Jesus’ way will lead us somewhere, but preferring our own way will lead us to nowhere. Amen on that folks!!

In her Diary entry no. 1541, St. Faustina wrote Jesus’ words; “ Write that when they say this chaplet in the presence of the dying, I will stand between My Father and the dying person, not as the just Judge but as the merciful Savior.”

Pray the Divine Mercy every 3 p.m. Daily recite the chaplet of mercy for peace and conversion of sinners.

Many thanks to those who attended the Divine Mercy Symposium last Saturday august 22, 2015 at Sta. Barbara Church lower parish hall. May the good Lord bless you and your families with abundance of His grace and mercy.
