5th Week in Ordinary Time

Mark 8: 1-10

Good morning my dear brothers and sisters in Christ. ..

Our Gospel today speaks about the instances that we find

ourselves in a “deserted place”. Sometimes we face problems with no
solution in sight. During such moments, our faith is put to a test. The
problems may be related to relationships, family, poor, health work and
finances. However the ways of the Lord are different. His miracles come
in the form of blessings. Blessings do not come only in terms of money
to meet our needs but also in learning to express our love and care for
people dearest to us. There are blessings of learning compassion and
humility blessings of sharing our resources and blessings of giving and
finding support and comfort for one another.

In this Eucharistic celebration, let us ask and reflect ourselves,

How have we experienced God’s blessings even when we are in the
difficult moments of our lives…

Let us all stand and sing joyfully our entrance song together with
our mass Presider Rev. Fr. Ariel Garcia.
