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

Saints Simon and Jude, ApostlesFirst readingEphesians 2:19-22In Christ you are no longer aliens, but citizens like us
You are no longer aliens or foreign visitors: you are citizens like all the saints, and part of God’s household. You are part of a building that has the apostles and prophets for its foundations, and Christ Jesus himself for its main cornerstone. As every structure is aligned on him, all grow into one holy temple in the Lord; and you too, in him, are being built into a house where God lives, in the Spirit.Read More
