100+ Years of Faith in Action

Holy Trinity Catholic Church

God is good all the time, and all the time God is good.

Dear Holy Trinity Family,

     “Hear me, all of you, and understand. Nothing that enters outside can defile that person; but the things that come out from within are what defile.” Jesus rebukes the Pharisees and scribes who is very much the focus of the tradition. The Pharisees and scribes were accusing Jesus' disciples of never washing their hands before eating. He called them hypocrites. Jesus does not hate them but dislike their attitudes. They are people who care about what people would say and always wanting to get praise and recognition for all they do. It is for show and not for real serving and loving people.
     Saint Teresa of Avila says, “Within you dwells your God. Enter within, look at him, talk to him, listen to him, and stay with him in your heart.” God wants us to present to him all our actions and our words spoken  from our hearts. He wants us to do things with the sincerity of our heart. Love should be the reason and our motivations for doing things. He doesn’t want people who is after their personal glory and honor. If we really love the Lord, be humble. Always point your finger not to your greatness but to God’s glory. As St. Therese says, "let us spend our heavens by doing good things on earth. This is the purpose of our life to give witness for the greater glory of God."

In Christ and Mary,

Fr. Rey Manahan

Today's Reading

Tue 7 December

Saint Ambrose, Bishop, DoctorFirst readingEphesians 3:8-12I, who am less than the least of all saints, have been entrusted with this special grace

I, Paul, who am less than the least of all the saints, have been entrusted with this special grace, not only of proclaiming to the pagans the infinite treasure of Christ but also of explaining how the mystery is to be dispensed. Through all the ages, this has been kept hidden in God, the creator of everything. Why? So that the Sovereignties and Powers should learn only now, through the Church, how comprehensive God’s wisdom really is, exactly according to the plan which he had had from all eternity in Christ Jesus our Lord. This is why we are bold enough to approach God in complete confidence, through our faith in him.
