The Lord Is My Chef Daily Recipe for the Soul by Fr. Nicanor F. Lalog II Thursday in the Thirtieth Week of Ordinary Time, Year II, 27 October 2022 Ephesians 6:10-20 ><000'> + ><000'> + ><000'> Luke 13:31-35
Lord Jesus Christ, in this age of affluence when we are so concerned with how we look, on how people see us that we strive to buy and put on the most expensive and luxurious clothes, shoes and bags, accessories and gadgets to impress people, to make known to everyone that "we have come", of who we are, of what we have achieved; make us not forget that what matters most is our inside not the outside.
Most often, we are like actors and actresses, or worst, clowns who see life as just a show - a palabas as we say in Filipino - that we forget the more essential and important things found inside us like our loving and kind hearts, beautiful mind, filled with your peace and goodwill.
Brothers and sisters: Draw your strength from the Lord and from his mighty power. Put on the armor of God so that you may be able to stand firm against the tactics of the devil. For our struggle is not with flesh and blood but with principalities, with the powers, with the world rulers of this present darkness, with the spirits in the heavens.Ephesians 6:10-12
Let us be dressed in your humility and kindness; clothe us with your justice and truth, wear always your peace and power wherever we go as we share you Jesus Christ to everyone we meet. Amen.
