What the Lord is saying at the beginning of 2012

February 18, 2012

I remember one day I met a person from Jesus Youth and I asked him, what he did and what was his job. And until today I still remember what he said to me, “Oh, I am a chemical engineer, but that is my part time job.” Then I continued to ask him, so what was his full time job, and his replied still rings in my ear today, “Evangelization”.

Currently, I am teaching and I really do enjoyed my job. It was taxing, and demanding, and consumes my energy, but I really do love it. In fact, I enjoyed it too much that I became engrossed in it. Most of the time, my mind kept on coming to my work, my career, and what I wanted to do. But for the past few weeks, the Lord has been speaking to me, softly and gently. And what surprises me is that he spoke mostly through my patron saint, St. Paul. Week by week, he said something to me through the second readings in Sunday masses. And these are what he said:

  1. Second Sunday of Ordinary time (15th January): “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?”
  2. Third Sunday of Ordinary time (22nd January): “and those who are involved with the world as though they were people not engrossed in it. Because this world as we know it is passing away.”
  3. Fourth Sunday of Ordinary time(29th January): “I am saying this only to help you, not to put a bridle on you, but so that everything is as it should be, and you are able to give your undivided attention to the Lord.”
  4. Fifth Sunday of Ordinary time (5th February): “woe to me if I do not preach it”
  5. Sixth Sunday of Ordinary time (12th February): “Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ”
  6. Seventh Sunday of Ordinary time (19th February): “therefore it is ‘through him’ that we answer ‘Amen’ to give praise to God.”

So let me say it , “Amen, Amen” 🙂
