Bl. Henry is associated with famous Dominican theologians and philosophers like Meister Eckhart and John Tauler, in the school of Dominican spirituality known as "Rhineland Mystics." In his writings, Bl. Henry taught detachment from all sensible reality and union with God through contemplation of the perfections and sufferings of Christ.

GOD OF WISDOM, you called Blessed Henry to follow your Son and gave him the grace to mortify his body. May we follow the crucified Christ and so obtain his eternal consolation. We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Viva Santo Niño! #Catholic #Philippines #SantoNiño #StoNiño #PitSenyor #KatolikongPinoy #LayDominicansPH #DominicansPH #OPPhil #Sunday #Gospel #Mass #NewEvangelization
This coming Sunday, January 21, is the Feast of the Santo Niño. It is arguably the most visible religious image in the country. It symbolizes the innocence and simplicity of Christ, and serves as a constant reminder of how He humbled Himself, becoming a child, in order to redeem us. It makes us realize that God is not far from us; He reached out and dwelt among us. In Jesus, God and man have been reconciled.

The Sto. Niño also embodies a cultural reality prevalent among us, Filipinos. Our devotion to the Sto. Niño is a reminder of our natural love for our children (CFC 36). Thus, we are easily attracted to Christ, represented by the Niño, because of our strong family relationships and traditions (ibid). In 2021, we will celebrate the 500th anniversary of the arrival of Christianity, and of the Sto. Niño, in the Philippines.

We wish our former spiritual director, Fr. Deng, a happy and blessed birthday!

For many years, Fr. Deng vigorously served as UST's Vice Rector for Religious Affairs and as Director of the Campus Ministry. Many Dominican brothers and priests, including our present spiritual director, were guided by him in important stages of their formation.

In 2017, he celebrated twenty-five years of priesthood. In August, he took up his new post as Superior of the Dominican Community in Surabaya, Indonesia, which is part of the mission territory of the Dominican Province of the Philippines.

This 2018, on the tenth year of the Young Thomasian Professionals as a Lay Dominican group, we look back with gratitude and praise God for sending us a good shepherd in the person of Fr. Deng.

It is inspiring to know that, despite the plans of his father, the King of Hungary, to have her dispensed from her vows in order to pursue a politically advantageous marriage, St. Margaret unhesitatingly labored so hard to preserve her consecration to God. She was a princess and yet she became an example of true humility and poverty. This won her the unfading crown of glory as a bride of Christ.

O GOD OF TRUTH, through the Holy Spirit you blessed our sister Margaret with true humility. Teach us that same integrity so that we may constantly turn from our selfishness to your love. We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

It's the start of another working week and we don't know what's in store for us. Faith can defeat our fears if we journey towards every tomorrow holding the hand of our Father and trusting in His love.

Have a blessed week ahead! We know you'll be busy but don't forget to make time for #JESUS because He's keeping you in His heart!

May our patroness, Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary, keep you and your loved ones under her motherly protection.

Here are the readings for the Second Sunday in Ordinary Time. Let us share the Word of God with our families and friends! #Catholic #Mass #Sunday #Philippines #KatolikongPinoy #LayDominicansPH #DominicansPH #OPPhil #UST #Jesus
This week, we have entered the first part of Ordinary Time, known in Latin as "Tempus per annum" or "the time during the year." Compared with other liturgical seasons such as #Advent (when we focus on the first and second coming of the Lord) or #Lent (focus on the passion, death, and resurrection), during Ordinary Time we do not focus on a particular element of the mystery and life of Christ, but celebrate and contemplate it in its entirety.
.
In their problematic understanding of the Catholic faith, there are those who accuse us of attributing lesser importance to parts of Jesus' life. They are wrong. The Church teaches that the whole Gospel of Christ, in its completeness and wholeness, is important. The name 'Ordinary Time' is not based on our common understanding of the word 'ordinary' (that is to say, common or unusual). It is called 'Ordinary Time' because the weeks and Sundays in it, including the celebrations and Mass readings, are numbered and follows a certain order (Latin: Ordinalis). Hence: Order = Ordinary = Ordinary Time.
.

OTHER USES OF THE WORD 'ORDINARY'
.
In Church language, the word 'ordinary' is also used to refer to the bishop of a diocese (called the Local Ordinary) because he possesses ordinary governing power over the territory. (See: Can. 134, Code of Canon Law)
.
The Jubilee Year celebrated by the Church every 25 years is also called an Ordinary Jubilee Year, in contrast with the 'Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy' proclaimed by Pope Francis in 2016 (a jubilee not celebrated on a regular basis).
.

THERE'S NOTHING "ORDINARY" IN ORDINARY TIME!
.
Above all these, we should keep in mind that at the very core of the Church's life is Jesus Christ. Everything revolves around him: our worship, our Sacraments, our teachings, our celebrations, and our liturgical seasons. He is the reason for the existence of the Church and He is the reason why we continue to preach the Good News! His life is at the core of our faith, and in this we can say, there is nothing 'ordinary' in Ordinary Time.

THANKS TO JESUS, WE ARE BORN AGAIN!

Today, we celebrate the Feast of the #Baptism of the Lord. This is part of the Lord's epiphany, that is, making the world know who He is: the only begotten Son of God and our long-awaited Savior. It marked the beginning of Jesus' public ministry (see CCC 535). Jesus did not need baptism because He is not and cannot be stained by sin. Yet by doing it, He numbered Himself among us, sinners, and gave a new meaning to the Baptism we have received (see CCC 536). Baptism has power because of the merits of Christ.

Through the Sacrament of Baptism, the stain of original sin is washed away and we are received into the family of God. This is why it's part of what we call the Sacraments of Christian Initiation. Our old selves must die with Christ in order to rise anew with Him. Thus, we experience what St. Paul said: "It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me" (Gal 2:20). This, in the context of the Sacrament of Baptism, is what it truly means to be born again. By washing away our sin, we become part of Christ's body (Col 1:18), the Church He founded (Mt 16:18), necessary because it is the "pillar and foundation of truth" (1 Tim 3:15). We should not take our baptism and Christianity for granted. Every day will be a struggle but, if we die with Christ, we will most assuredly rise again with Him.

The picture shows St. Raymond's most famous miracle. He was the confessor to King James I of Aragon. The king brought his mistress when they went to the island of Majorca in an effort to convert the Moors. Raymond admonished the king and asked him repeatedly to dismiss his concubine, to no avail. He then told the king he could no longer remain in his service and planned to leave for Barcelona. The king forbade Raymond to leave the island and threatened to punish any captain who would let him board their ship.

Defiant, St. Raymond went to the seashore, took off his cape and used it to form a miniature mast. With it, he sailed to Barcelona. He was seen by the sailors who refused to transport him off the island. The miracle shook the king to his senses and, as a result, renounced his sinful ways.

_________________

Lord, you gave Saint Raymond the gift of compassion in his ministry to sinners. May his prayers free us from the slavery of sin and help us to love and serve you in liberty. We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
