A Catholic Prayer Meeting of the LIGHT OF JESUS FAMILYAugust 26, 201
 H O W  T O  M A  K E  M O T H E R  N A  T U R E  H A  P P Y See  page 7
Today, I receive all of God’s love for me.Today, I open myself tothe unbounded, limitless,
overowing abundance of 
God’s universe.Today, I open myself to
God’s blessings, healing,
and miracles.Today, I open myself toGod’s Word
So I would become
More like Jesus every day.Today, I proclaim that Iam God’s beloved,I am God’s servant,
I am God’s powerful
champion.And because I am blessed,
I am blessing the world.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
PEOPLE ask me all the time, “Bo, how can Iknow God’s mission for my life?”First thing to check? Your Passion.These recent years, I’ve been coaching people in their small businesses. (I’m noexpert, but when I get stumped, I link upwith mentors better than me.) And one of themost powerful elements of business successis passion. If the entrepreneur works like he’snot working, but playing, enjoying everythinghe does, gets lost in what he does, will do whathe does even if he doesn’t get paid—even if he makes all sorts of mistakes at the start—  by the end of his journey, the likelihood of success is gigantic.When God calls us to do something,He would give us the passion to do it with all
our heart. We will nd ourselves happy doing
it in the long-term, even if we’ll have to go
through unhappy timesin the short-term.Second thing tocheck? Your Potential.Here’s my belief:God has given you aunique gift that willmake you a Superstar inyour world.
If you nd your 
unique gift, you’ll be Number One. Hey, I’mnot suggesting that you be superstar of the entireworld. Just the superstar of your niche.Let me give youan example. I’m not the best preacher in the world.Again, my mother will disagree, but please be quiet about it and don’t burst her bubble. She’s 87 years oldand I want her to live the rest of her remaining 23 years of her life on earth(yes, she’ll live until 110) with the belief that I’m the best preacher in theworld. So Shhhhhhh…But this I can accept. I think I’m one of the best when it comesto preachers who are (1) Lay, (2)Catholic, (3) Married (4) Practical,(5) Funny (in a corny way), (6)Story-Telling, (7) English Speaking-- because his Tagalog sounds queer (9)and has a mole on his left cheek thatif not shaven twice a week grows intoan ugly bush.In that tiny, tiny, tiny niche, I’mthe superstar.Hey, it’s your turn.How can you be a superstar inyour niche?
Dene yourself.
Mark your boundaries and callit your property. And bless the worldfrom that special place.Have an awesome Feast today!May your dreams come true,BO SANCHEZ

If God Calls You To Do Something,You’ll Love Doing It— 
And If You Do What You Love,
Blessings Will Follow
The Bread of Life BecomesThe Bread of Wisdom
FR. ERIC SANTOS,celebrating Holy Mass on theeve of his birthday, explainedthe Gospel according to John6:51-58 where Jesus says,
“I am the living bread whichhas come down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that 
 I shall give is my esh, for the
life of the world.”
Fr. Eric said the Lord tellsus to look for food that does notspoil. In saying that He is theBread of Life Jesus reveals thatHe is the Source of our spiritualnourishment, thus the way toeternal life. To have the Breadof Life, we partake of the Bodyand Blood of Christ duringHoly Communion. When wedo, we gain wisdom whichis more important than mereintelligence. Fr. Eric addedthat EQ Emotional Quotient(EQ) is more desirable thanIntelligence Quotient (IQ).Being wise means focusing onwhat matters in life which ismaintaining a close relationshipwith God and with one another.Fr. Eric said don’t beafraid to discover Wisdomgiven by God. Continue sharingin the Body and Blood of theLord. The Bread that comesfrom Heaven is the Breadthat becomes Wisdom and theBread becomes Life.

No Pain, No Gain!
IN the third leg of our series
, Bro. BoSanchez revealed one morething which makes eachone of us unique: our pain.Bro. Bo shared thestory of three widows fromthe Bible’s
 Book of Ruth
: Naomi, Ruth and Orpah.Elimelech, the husband of  Naomi, and their two sonsdied. Naomi, an Israelite, isleft with her two widoweddaughters-in-law, Ruth andOrpah, both Moabites.At the time, widowsdon’t inherit anything fromtheir husband, so they areleft to fend for themselves. Naomi plans to go back to her hometown inBethlehem so she tellsOrpah and Ruth to go back to their families.Orpah goes back to her family. ButRuth decides to go with Naomi inBethlehem. To survive, she picks
leftover grains from a eld owned
 by Boaz. Boaz takes notice of her and eventually marries her. From being a beggar in the propertyof Boaz, Ruth becomes owner of the land.Thus, Bro. Bo pointed out,
nothing just happens
.* There is aGod who is working behind thescenes to create our life’s beautiful picture. As Proverbs 16:9 putsit,
“In his heart a man plans
his course, but the LORD
determines his steps.”
Bro. Bo says pain can leadto the masterpiece God meantus to be. He gave as an exampleMichaelangelo’s
, the mostfamous sculpture in the world.The Pieta was nothing more thana block of marble. Just like Ruth,
the stone rst suffered
 pain. For eight longyears, the stone washammered and chiselled by Michelangelo intothe masterpiece that it isnow. In the same manner,when unfortunate eventshappen to us, it doesn’tmean that God wantedit to happen. We live ina broken world where people are allowed to dogood
but are also allowed to do bad 
. But becauseof the mercy of God,
nothing just happens
.God promises in 1Peter 1:6 that we mighthave to suffer trials butonly for a little while. Our struggles are pathways toour success.
--Kristine Mutuc Photos by Arlene Batislaon
*The story of Ruth is, in fact,
 part of God’s plan for our  salvation. Boaz and Ruth haa son named Obed. Obed was
the father of Jesse, and thusthe grandfather of David from
whose line came Joseph and 
 Mary, the parents of Jesus, ou Lord and Savior.
 I am God’s Masterpiece
IN his third talk of the series
, Bro Bo. Sanchezdiscussed pain we suffer.He shared the story of Ruth who overcame the painof losing her husband and living in poverty. In a gist, Bro.Bo’s simple message last Sunday was, “Nothing justhappens in our life”. God is always with us -- he shares inour pains and sufferings, and our joy. God uses the painas a chisel to shape us into His marvellous masterpiece.To echo this wonderful truth, Feast PICC made a whiteT-shirt with the message “I am God’s Master Piece”decorated with all the colors of the rainbow.Modeled by Bro. Bo’s son Francis, the T-shirtsold briskly at the Lobby. Families and friends grabbedthe T-shirts to proclaim to the world that yes, they areGod’s masterpiece.

Ruth 2:1-5
 Now there was a wealthy and inuential man in Bethlehem named Boaz, who was a relative of Naomi’shusband, Elimelech. One day Ruth the Moabite said to Naomi, “Let me go out into the harvest elds to pick 
up the stalks of grain left behind by anyone who is kind 
enough to let me do it.” Naomi replied, “All right, mydaughter, go ahead.” So Ruth went out to gather grainbehind the harvesters. And as it happened, she found herself working in a eld that belonged to Boaz, therelative of her father-in-law, Elimelech. While she wasthere, Boaz arrived from Bethlehem and greeted theharvesters. “The LORD be with you!” he said. “The LORD bless you!” the harvesters replied. Then Boaz asked his foreman, “Who is that young woman over there? Who does she belong to?”
Proverbs 16:9
We can make our plans, but the LORD determines
our steps.
