The Lord Is My Chef Sunday Music by Fr. Nick F. Lalog II, 11 July 2021
Life is always beautiful, even if not all days are bright and sunny. Despite the rains and darkness above us, life is still good because of God’s great love for us expressed through the people he sends us like family and friends, even strangers sometimes.
In today’s gospel, we heard Jesus sent the Twelve to cast out unclean spirits and to heal the sick and afflicted (https://lordmychef.com/2021/07/10/we-are-missionaries-of-christ/). It is the first task given by Jesus to every missionary he sends because wherever there are darkness and sickness, you also find evil and sin. By casting out evil and sins, preaching repentance, the world is restored to its original order of beauty and truth in God.
That is why we have chosen Mr. Ryan Cayabyab’s classic composition from 1980 Tuwing Umuulan at Kapiling Ka originally recorded by Mr. Basil Valdez that was covered by other artists until recently .
One of the most beautiful OPM (Original Pilipino Music) love song courtesy of Mr. Cayabyab also known as “El Maestro” for his being a musical and lyrical genius.
The song speaks so well about the nature of life that is sometimes caught in a storm with so much rains and darkness; but, the guy is not worried at all, even asking for more rains for as long as he is with his beloved one.
Pagmasdan ang ulan, unti-unting pumapatak Sa mga halama't mga bulaklak Pagmasdan ang dilim, unti-unting bumabalot Sa buong paligid tuwing umuulan Kasabay ng ulan, bumubuhos ang iyong ganda Kasabay rin ng hanging kumakanta Maaari bang huwag ka nang sa piling ko'y lumisan pa? Hanggang ang hangi't ula'y tumila na Buhos na ulan, aking mundo'y lunuring tuluyan Tulad ng pag-agos mo, 'di mapipigil ang puso kong nagliliyab Pag-ibig ko'y umaapaw, damdamin ko'y humihiyaw sa tuwa Tuwing umuulan at kapiling ka
Today, the Lord is sending us as is missionaries in his name, in his power. We merely propose but do not impose through our life of witnessing to the saving power of Jesus Christ. May we bring light and life to those going through many rains and darkness these days so they may realize that despite the storms, life is always beautiful.
