Sirach 1:1-8///Mark 9:14-29

O God our Father, today I praise and thank you for the 33rd anniversary of the People Power Revolution that happened at EDSA.

I am proud O Lord of that historic moment in our history because I was there with my sister.

But I also feel so sad today, O Lord, because we have wasted your gift at EDSA.  I feel betrayed by many of our leaders there who have left us.  I feel betrayed by many of the other veterans of that bloodless coup who have left our cause.

EDSA 86 was our moment of Exodus from our own Egypt but due to our many idolatrous ways, here we are as a nation still wandering in the wilderness when EDSA has become the symbol of everything wrong in us.

Help us to return to you again as our Lord and only Master.

Let us turn back to you for more wisdom to finally set our course right on track as a nation, giving priority to the value of every person and of human life.

God our Father, sometimes I really can’t figure out anymore what went wrong with EDSA because I know I also have a part in its failure.

I still do believe in the ideals of EDSA and most especially in you, the God of history.

Yes, like that father of an epileptic, “I do believe, help me in my unbelief!” (Mk.9:24)
Amen.  Fr. Nicanor F. Lalog II, Parokya ng San Juan Apostol at Ebanghelista, Gov. F. Halili Ave., Bagbaguin, Sta. Maria, Bulacan.
