My brothers and sisters in Christ,
We are approaching the third Sunday of Easter as time flies so fast. Hopefully, you still hear the echo of the Easter message that we are called to be witnesses of the Risen Lord. Alleluia is a great song to sing during this Easter season. I pray that you keep singing Alleluia in your daily activity.
Here in our Sacred Heart parish, we walked with Jesus during his passion and death and now, we rejoice with the Risen Lord, His Resurrection. His resurrection makes us the people of hope and Jesus, himself invites us to be his witnesses. Are you willing to give testimony of the truth of our Lord Jesus? The Acts of the Apostles really tells us how hard it is to be followers of Jesus. The first Christian community experienced many hardships and trials before the evil force. However, they were not afraid to profess their faith in the Resurrection of Jesus. They challenged the persecutors and the enemies of the Church with their eloquent preaching and strong faith.
More than ever, I believe we are living in the world which needs many witnesses like you and me. Be not afraid when you feel unworthy, or your faith is not strong enough. Look at St. Thomas (the doubter), St. Peter (coward), St. Paul (persecutor) and many others, but Jesus always used them to teach the wise and not so wise. When I ponder on this fact, I am so grateful to God for His Divine Mercy. God is indeed a life-creating God. He is not only making us the instrument to bring his Peace but also enables us so we may be more effective and creative. Please listen to what God is saying to you today.
