Doing The Will Of The Father

19 July 2011

Today’s Readings: Ex 14:21-15:1 / Mt 12:46-50

REFLECTION
Whoever does the will of the Father in heaven is my brother, sister, mother. By putting together the different aspects of his teachings, we can come to some understanding of his multifaceted reality which is growing secretly among us all throughout history.

In today’s Gospel, Jesus spoke by means of comparisons. This mode of teaching is very appropriate for presenting moral teachings and the religious teachers of that time made great use of comparisons.

Jesus calls us to do the will of the Father; that which is doing exactly what pleases him. Whatever pleases the Father, whatever is good for others and for ourselves- that’s doing the will of the Father. Doing the will of the Father is loving our brothers, sisters and mothers. God our Father will judge each one of us according to the measure we judge our brothers, sisters, mothers.

PRAYER
Loving Father we praise and thank you for teaching us how to do your will. Send us your Spirit that we may be steadfast and loyal to you – as we do everything that pleases you.

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.
