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

Saint Agnes, Virgin, MartyrFirst reading1 Corinthians 1:26-31God chose what is foolish by human reckoning, to shame the wise
Take yourselves for instance, brothers, at the time when you were called: how many of you were wise in the ordinary sense of the word, how many were influential people, or came from noble families? No, it was to shame the wise that God chose what is foolish by human reckoning, and to shame what is strong that he chose what is weak by human reckoning; those whom the world thinks common and contemptible are the ones that God has chosen – those who are nothing at all to show up those who are everything. The human race has nothing to boast about to God, but you, God has made members of Christ Jesus and by God’s doing he has become our wisdom, and our virtue, and our holiness, and our freedom. As scripture says: if anyone wants to boast, let him boast about the Lord.Read More
