Fifth Sunday of Easter: Manatili kay Kristo

Marami sa atin ang dumalo o nakaranas na magdiwang ng anibersaryo ng kasal.  Mayroong Silver Anniversary o yung dalawamput limang taon na pagsasama, yung iba naman ay Golden o yung limampung taon, mayroon pang binibiyayaan ng mahabang buhay at nakahihigit pa sa huling nabanggit.  Sila ay larawan ng pananatiling nagmamahalan sa isat-isa, mga mag-asawang nanumpa na magsasama sa hirap at ginhawa, sa gitna ng sakit at kalusugan, ganon din sa karangyaan o kahirapan ng buhay.

Fifth Sunday of Easter: A vinedresser who prunes

In today’s Gospel, Jesus begins with the solemn affirmation “I am the true vine” (v.1).
 
Israel was the vineyard of the Lord, sung by the prophets. She was a vine that had produced abundant fruits of faithfulness, when she was “like wild grapes in the desert” (Hosea 9:10) and Yahweh took loving care of it (Isaiah 27:2-5).

Si Kristo: ang daan, ang katotohanan at ang buhay

Napakahirap ang mabalisa at maguluhan ng isip.  Di nalalayo ang panghihina ng pananampalataya, ng loob at kalusugan.  Kaya naman nakakatuwa at nakagiginhawa ng kalooban ang pahayag ni Jesus sa ebanghelyo: “Huwag ninyong hayaang maguluhan ang inyong puso.  Manalig kayo sa Diyos, manalig din kayo sa akin.”  Saang mga bagay tayo dapat manalig kay Kristo?

One life many things to do

In my Father’s house there are many rooms... Yet you know the way where I am going (vv.2-4). Jesus is implying that he must walk down a difficult path. He adds that his disciples should know the way extremely well, because he had often spoken about it.
 
Thomas replies on behalf of all: we do not know this way and we cannot guess where you want to go. Jesus explains that he himself will be the first to run the way once his mission is accomplished, then he will come back and will take the disciples with him.
