Third Sunday of Advent: My Juan and only

Naging abala ang pamahalaan ng Pilipinas noong nakakaraang ganapin ang ASEAN sa Pilipinas. Kung anu-anong paghahanda ang ginawa.  Isang kapansin-pansin ay ang pag- kakansela ng pasok ng mga kawani ng gobyerno, mag-aaral, at mga manggagawa sa Kamaynilahan at mga karatig na lungsod.

Third Sunday of Advent: Joy of waiting for the dawn

At the end of the first century AD when John wrote his gospel, there were still many people who called themselves disciples of John the Baptist. So, the evangelist clarifies the position of the precursor vis-a-vis Christ.
 
The Baptist was not the light of the world. He was just the first to recognise “the true light that enlightens everyone” (John 1:9). He was not deceived by the flattery of being called the messiah. He kept himself faithful to his mission.

Hesus ikaw ang aming pag-asa!

Sa ating panahon ngayon maraming mga pangyayari na nakakasira ng loob. Mga problema ng ating lipunan, dito man sa Hongkong, sa Pilipinas at sa ibang bansa. 

Pag-ika’y nagbabasa ng pahayagan, o nanonood ng telebisyon ang mga balita ay nakakadismaya. Parang lahat ng balita ay “bad news”, walang “good news.”

Invited to conversion

Educated by the prophets, Israel had been waiting for the saviour for centuries. But when he came, even the more spiritually prepared and well-disposed struggled to recognise and to welcome him. The Baptist also remained indecisive.

In the first part of today’s gospel we see that John is imprisoned. Not getting news about exciting interventions from Jesus, the Baptist’s faith begins to waver.
