Lk 6:27-38
Jesus said to his disciples:
“To you who hear I say, love your enemies,
do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you,
pray for those who mistreat you.
To the person who strikes you on one cheek,
offer the other one as well,
and from the person who takes your cloak,
do not withhold even your tunic.
Give to everyone who asks of you,
and from the one who takes what is yours do not demand it back.
Do to others as you would have them do to you.
For if you love those who love you,
what credit is that to you?
Even sinners love those who love them.
And if you do good to those who do good to you,
what credit is that to you?
Even sinners do the same.
If you lend money to those from whom you expect repayment,
what credit is that to you?
Even sinners lend to sinners,
and get back the same amount.
But rather, love your enemies and do good to them,
and lend expecting nothing back;
then your reward will be great
and you will be children of the Most High,
for he himself is kind to the ungrateful and the wicked.
Be merciful, just as also your Father is merciful.

“Stop judging and you will not be judged.
Stop condemning and you will not be condemned.
Forgive and you will be forgiven.
Give and gifts will be given to you;
a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing,
will be poured into your lap.
For the measure with which you measure
will in return be measured out to you.”

St. Peter Claver, pray for us!
September 9

***
St. Peter Claver, SJ, was a member of the Society of Jesus and is the patron of African missions and of in*******al justice, due to his work with slaves in Colombia.

Peter Claver was born to a prosperous family in Verdu, Spain, and earned his first degree in Barcelona. He entered the Jesuits in 1601. When he was in Majorca studying philosophy, Claver was encouraged by Alphonsus Rodriguez, the saintly doorkeeper of the college, to go to the missions in America. Claver listened, and in 1610 he landed in Cartagena, Colombia. After completing his studies in Bogotá, Peter was ordained in Cartagena in 1616.

Cartagena was one of two ports where slaves from Africa arrived to be sold in South America. Between the years 1616 and 1650, Peter Claver worked daily to minister to the needs of the 10,000 slaves who arrived each year.

When a ship arrived, Peter first begged for fruits, biscuits, or sweets to bring to the slaves. He then went on board with translators to bring his gifts as well as his skills as a doctor and teacher. Claver entered the holds of the ships and would not leave until every person received a measure of care. Peter gave short instruction in the Catholic faith and baptized as many as he could. In this way he could prevail on the slave owners to give humane treatment to fellow Christians. Peter Claver baptized more than 300,000 slaves by 1651, when he was sickened by the plague.

In the last years of his life Peter was too ill to leave his room. The ex-slave who was hired to care for him treated him cruelly, not feeding him many days, and never bathing him. Claver never complained. He was convinced that he deserved this treatment.

In 1654 Peter was anointed with the oil of the Sacrament of the Sick. When Cartagenians heard the news, they crowded into his room to see him for the last time. They treated Peter Claver’s room as a shrine, and stripped it of everything but his bedclothes for mementos. Claver died September 7, 1654.

St. Peter Claver was canonized in 1888.

September 8 is the Feast of the Birth of Mary

The child Mary, also known as Maria Bambina or Maria Bambinella.

In the celebration of this feast we are called to praise the Most Holy Trinity for the marvels accomplished in Mary, from the moment of her conception and to contemplate the first fruits of redemption which Christ has wrought in her.

07/09/2021

Mga ka-lingkod, the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary is one of the only three nativities that the Catholic Church celebrates.

The Church has celebrated Mary’s birth since at least the sixth century. A September birth was chosen because the Eastern Church begins its Church year with September. The September 8 date helped determine the date for the feast of the Immaculate Conception on December 8.

Scripture does not give an account of Mary’s birth. However, the apocryphal Protoevangelium of James fills in the gap. This work has no historical value, but it does reflect the development of Christian piety. According to this account, Anne and Joachim are infertile but pray for a child. They receive the promise of a child who will advance God’s plan of salvation for the world. Such a story, like many biblical counterparts, stresses the special presence of God in Mary’s life from the beginning.

Saint Augustine connects Mary’s birth with Jesus’ saving work. He tells the earth to rejoice and shine forth in the light of her birth. “She is the flower of the field from whom bloomed the precious lily of the valley. Through her birth the nature inherited from our first parents is changed.” The opening prayer at Mass speaks of the birth of Mary’s Son as the dawn of our salvation, and asks for an increase of peace.

Blessed Virgin Mary, pray for us.

---

Let me begin by extending to you the greetings of peace and joy from the Philippines, particularly from Cebu, the host of the 51st IEC and the Cradle of Christianity in the Far East, as our country celebrates this year the 5th centenary of the arrival of the Christian faith on our shores.

Today, the psalmist exclaims, “What marvels the LORD worked for us. Indeed, we were glad!” (Ps 125). We are glad to join His Eminence Cardinal Peter Erdo and the thousands of delegates for this 52nd International Eucharistic Congress. Personally, I am glad because the patron of our cathedral in Jaro where I was ordained is St. Elizabeth of Hungary. We are all glad as we anticipate the coming of our beloved Holy Father Pope Francis for the Statio Orbis on September 12, the day of love.

My dear brothers and sisters, today we are all glad for we marvel at the Lord’s work of gathering us together despite the pandemic here in the historic and beautiful city of Budapest to reflect, meditate, and celebrate the wondrous gift of the Eucharist. In this Mass, we also celebrate the feast of the Kassa Martyrs, Saints Mark, Stephen, and Melchoir. Our Liturgy today also asks us to reflect on the theme of peace, the peace which only God can give. At this point, allow me then to share with you some thoughts on peace:

First, God’s Peace is about Being Part of God’s family.

Our theme for this year’s International Eucharistic Congress, “All my springs are in you.” (Ps. 87:7) In this short chapter, we hear the Lord praising Jerusalem as over and above the dwelling places of Jacob for it is the city which the Lord himself established. However, this privileged status of Jerusalem has been extended by the Lord to all nations even to the city’s enemies so that everyone will say “this one was born there.” And so, when all nations together with Jerusalem learn and live the order and peace which God has willed then “all singers and dancers shall say, ‘All my springs are in you” for creation has reached its goal.

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, what the psalmist proclaims is actualized in every Eucharistic celebration. In every Holy Sacrifice, we begin by acknowledging the source of our gathering together, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We also profess to the Triune God that “all our springs are in them, are from them.” Right at the start of the Holy Mass, we let go of our social status and the many things that divide us for we become one family of believers. It is also in every Eucharist where we let go of our titles and call each one as brothers and sisters” and we ask the Lord to make “my sacrifice and yours be acceptable to the almighty Father.” It is this experience of being family every time the Eucharist is offered and celebrated that we can truly experience the peace which only God can give. If before, peace draws its source from the springs in Jerusalem, today, every time the Sacrifice is offered on every altar, peace gushes forth, for in every Eucharist we become one family of God, “a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of his own, so that you may announce the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” (1 Pt. 2, 9).

Second, Peace is not about the absence of pain and suffering but the realization of God’s presence in the midst of pain and suffering.

Our Gospel today is part of the missionary discourse of Jesus in Matthew. In the earlier verses, Jesus speaks about the presence of persecution when “men will deliver them to courts, flog them in synagogues, and be dragged before governors and kings.” Yet despite all these pain and suffering, the Lord assures his apostles in today’s Gospel not to fear and worry, for if God values the sparrows, how much more you and me who enjoy familial intimacy with our Father in heaven. Once we realize this truth of divine adoption by the Father then no amount of pain and suffering can disturb and destroy the peace that springs from the heart of God, for “if God is with us, who can be against us” (Rom 8, 31). Even as in many places Covid is still around, because God is with us, we do not give in to fear, but rather, we continue to be steadfast in our faith. Thus, together with Paul, we can boldly profess, “we are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted but not forsaken; struck down but never destroyed” (2 Cor. 4, 8 - 9).

Our two points on peace: peace as being part of God’s family and peace as God’s presence in the midst of pain and suffering are perfectly concretized in the lives of Sts. Mark, Stephen, and Melchoir. St. Melchoir who was born into Polish aristocracy yet left such privileged life and joined the Society of Jesus. St. Stephen, who like Melchoir entered the Jesuits, even if he could have enjoyed living his life in his native Transylvania. St. Mark who considered his different missions as one single field of apostolic activity and who was said to have a good relationship with the Calvinists never treating them as enemies but brothers and sisters in Christ even if he was horribly killed by them. The lives of these three martyrs of Kassa teach us today that peace is very much attainable despite the presence of pain and suffering as long as we in the deepest recesses of our hearts allow ourselves to become part of one this family that draws living water from the spring of God the Father in heaven.

In his message to the Pope during a mass held in the Vatican to commemorate the 500th year of Christianity in the Philippines with the theme, “Gifted to Give”, His Eminence Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle said and I quote, “The gift must continue being a gift. It must be shared. If it is kept for itself, it ceases to be a gift.”

My dear brothers and sisters, we who have been gifted and satiated with the springs of God’s graces in the Eucharist are called henceforth to be bringers of peace to others. Just like a spring that flows freely until it waters and fills every corner and space that it reaches, let us radiate God’s peace to all nations, to the ends of the earth wherever we find ourselves in. May God’s peace we with us always as we go forth in fulfilling this mission. And may our Blessed Mother, the Queen of peace intercede for us all. Amen.
