We Are Channels Of God’s Love

16 July 2011

Today’s Readings: Ex 12:37-42 / Mt 12:14-21

REFLECTION
Jesus does not disapprove of Mary’s passionate feelings and actions. He understands her human emotions but her familiar gesture of taking possession of her beloved Master is no longer appropriate. Jesus is the Risen One and though he lets himself be seen by his disciples for a few days, he is in the glory of the Father.

In today’s Gospel, Jesus greatest desire is revealed to us. He came from God and must return to God. He loves the world and gives his life for us as proof of this love. This too is the manifestation of his love for the Father who sent his only Son to save all of us.

By sending the Spirit they continue to guide us. Jesus challenges us to be channels for God’s love to our brothers and sisters in need.

PRAYER
Loving Father, make us channels of your love to our brothers and sisters- whenever and wherever they are – in response to your call.

In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

Who We Are

Communication Foundation for Asia is a pioneer in development communication. It was established in 1968 as a non-stock, non-profit organization, but its origins go way back to 1960, when the Social Communications Center was born with the publication of the Philippine Catholic Digest. Both organizations were founded by the Dutch missionary, Fr Cornelio Lagerwey, MSC, in collaboration with his mission partner Genaro V. Ong.
