We Are Privileged

Today’s Readings: Ex 16:1-5, 9-15 / Mt 13:1-9

REFLECTION
Jesus declares; the waiting is over. Blessed are your eyes for you are witnessing what prophets through the ages anticipated and the righteous of every generation longed to see. The disciples along with the poor and the lowly witness deeds fulfilling the promises of God to their predecessors.

In today’s Gospel, Jesus tells us that we are blessed with the faith to perceive what these deeds mean. Unlike the crowds who listen but do not understand and look but do not perceive, we are given the eyes that really see and ears that really hear. In contrast, the learned exemplified by the scribes and Pharisees remain indifferent to the deeds that they see Jesus performs their eyes and their hearts are closed to in breaking of God’s presence in the world.

Jesus challenges us to follow God’s lead and cooperate with God’s plan.

PRAYER
Loving Father, we praise and thank you for giving us the grace to hear your word and the wisdom to understand what you reveal.

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.
