Saint Philip Neri’s Story

Philip Neri was a sign of contradiction, combining popularity with piety against the background of a corrupt Rome and a disinterested clergy: the whole post-Renaissance malaise.

At an early age, Philip abandoned the chance to become a businessman, moved to Rome from Florence, and devoted his life and individuality to God. After three years of philosophy and theology studies, he gave up any thought of ordination. The next 13 years were spent in a vocation unusual at the time—that of a layperson actively engaged in prayer and the apostolate.

As the Council of Trent (1545-63) was reforming the Church on a doctrinal level, Philip’s appealing personality was winning him friends from all levels of society, from beggars to cardinals. He rapidly gathered around himself a group of laypersons won over by his audacious spirituality. Initially, they met as an informal prayer and discussion group, and also served poor people in Rome.

At the urging of his confessor, Philip was ordained a priest and soon became an outstanding confessor himself, gifted with the knack of piercing the pretenses and illusions of others, though always in a charitable manner and often with a joke. He arranged talks, discussions, and prayers for his penitents in a room above the church. He sometimes led “excursions” to other churches, often with music and a picnic on the way.

Some of Philip’s followers became priests and lived together in community. This was the beginning of the Oratory, the religious institute he founded. A feature of their life was a daily afternoon service of four informal talks, with vernacular hymns and prayers. Giovanni Palestrina was one of Philip’s followers, and composed music for the services. The Oratory was finally approved after suffering through a period of accusations of being an assembly of heretics, where laypersons preached and sang vernacular hymns!

Philip’s advice was sought by many of the prominent figures of his day. He is one of the influential figures of the Counter-Reformation, mainly for converting to personal holiness many of the influential people within the Church itself. His characteristic virtues were humility and gaiety.

After spending a day hearing confessions and receiving visitors, Philip Neri suffered a hemorrhage and died on the feast of Corpus Christi in 1595. He was beatified in 1615 and canonized in 1622. Three centuries later, Cardinal John Henry Newman founded the first English-speaking house of the Oratory in London.

Reflection

Many people wrongly feel that such an attractive and jocular personality as Philip’s cannot be combined with an intense spirituality. Philip’s life melts our rigid, narrow views of piety. His approach to sanctity was truly catholic, all-embracing, and accompanied by a good laugh. Philip always wanted his followers to become not less but more human through their striving for holiness.

So sad that all those who claims to have been called but who actually were never called except that they called themselves to wickedly extort money from the poor, buy the most expensive cars, jets, mansions, gold and silver and yet they are never satisfied.... no doubt the Bible describe their THROATS as their grave. Romans, 3:13.

Sa Pagsalubong sa Pagbabalik ng Panginoon, Hindi Tayo Dapat Umasa Lamang sa Ating Mga Mata
https://tl.kingdomsalvation.org/videos/the-Lord-is-knocking.html?source=gzy7626934

Minamahal kong mga kapatid! Kung nais mo na mas malaman pa, ikaw ay malaya na mag-iwan ng komento sa ibaba o kontakin kami sa Messenger. Kami ay narito 24/7 upang magfellowship at makipagtalakayan sa inyo. m.me/EasternLightningtl

Maraming mga mananampalataya sa Panginoon ang nag-iisip kapag bumalik ang Panginoon, darating Siya sa mga ulap upang magpakita sa tao. Kaya, maniniwala lamang sila na bumalik na ang Panginoon kapag nakita nila Siya na bumababa sa mga ulap. Sa katunayan, hindi tama ang pananaw na ito. Bakit? Isipin muna natin ito: Naniniwala ba tayo sa Panginoon dahil nakikita natin ang Panginoong Jesus sa sarili nating mga mata, o dahil ang Panginoong Jesus ay ipinako sa krus para sa sangkatauhan at binigyan sila ng paraan ng pagsisisi? Sa totoo lang, naniniwala tayo sa Panginoon hindi dahil nakikita natin Siya sa ating mga mata, ngunit dahil napatunayan natin sa loob ng ating puso na ang mga salita at gawa ng Panginoon ay nagmula sa Diyos. Kung makikita natin ang Panginoon ng ating mga mata, maaari ba talaga nating masalubong Siya?
Nang dumating ang Panginoong Jesus upang gawin ang Kanyang gawain, ang mga punong pari, eskriba, at mga Pariseo ay lahat nakakita sa Panginoon, ngunit hindi nila kinilala ang Panginoon bilang Mesiyas at sila ay lumaban din at hinatulan Siya, at ipinako Siya sa krus, nakagawa ng isang napakasamang krimen. Makikita na sa pagsalubong sa Panginoon ay hindi lamang tayo maaaring umasa sa ating mga mata sapagkat ito ay isang bagay na espiritwal. Kung gayon, hindi natin sasalubungin ang Panginoon gamit ang ating mga mata.
Dahil hindi tayo maaaring umasa sa ating mga mata sa pagsalubong sa Panginoon, kung gayon kapag marinig natin ang isang tao na nagpapatotoo na ang Panginoon ay bumalik, paano natin siya makikilala?
Mangyaring panoorin ang maikling palabas, na makakatulong sa iyo na mahanap ang paraan.
