Adlaw 15: Usa ka Bag-ong Pentecostes

IKAW NA made it! The end of our retreat — but not the end of God’s gifts, and dili gayud katapusan sa Iyang gugma. Sa pagkatinuod, ang karon espesyal kaayo tungod kay ang Ginoo adunay usa ka bag-ong pagbubo sa Balaang Espiritu to bestow upon you. Our Lady has been praying for you and anticipating this moment as well, as she joins you in the upper room of your heart to pray for a “new Pentecost” in your soul. Padayon sa pagbasa

Adlaw 14: Ang Sentro sa Amahan

USAHAY we can get stuck in our spiritual lives due to our wounds, judgments, and unforgiveness. This retreat, thus far, has been a means to help you see the truths about both yourself and your Creator, so that “the truth will set you free.” But it is necessary that we live and have our being in the whole truth, in the very center of the Father’s heart of love…Padayon sa pagbasa

Adlaw 13: Iyang Makaayo nga Paghikap ug Tingog

Ganahan kong mopaambit sa imong pagpamatuod sa uban kon sa unsang paagi gitandog sa Ginoo ang imong kinabuhi ug gidala ang kaayohan kanimo pinaagi niini nga pag-atras.

Adlaw 10: Ang Makaayo nga Gahum sa Gugma

IT says in First John:

We love, because he first loved us. (1 John 4:19)

Ika-8 nga Adlaw: Ang Kinahiladman nga mga Samad

WE are now crossing the halfway point of our retreat. God is not finished, there is more work to do. The Divine Surgeon is beginning to reach the deepest places of our woundedness, not to trouble and disturb us, but to heal us. It can be painful to face these memories. This is the moment of pagkamalahutayon; this is the moment of walking by faith and not sight, trusting in the process that the Holy Spirit has begun in your heart. Standing beside you is the Blessed Mother and your brothers and sisters, the Saints, all interceding for you. They are closer to you now than they were in this life, because they are fully united to the Holy Trinity in eternity, who dwells within you by virtue of your Baptism.

Yet, you may feel alone, even abandoned as you struggle to answer questions or to hear the Lord speaking to you. But as the Psalmist says, “Where can I go from your Spirit? From your presence, where can I flee?”[1]Salmo 139: 7 Jesus promised: “I am with you always, until the end of the age.”[2]Matt 28: 20Padayon sa pagbasa

Adlaw 6: Pagpasaylo sa Kagawasan

Palihug us begin this new day, these new beginnings: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, amen.

Heavenly Father, thank you for Your unconditional love, lavished upon me when I least deserve it. Thank You for giving me the life of Your Son so that I may truly live. Come now Holy Spirit, and enter into the darkest corners of my heart where there still lingers painful memories, bitterness, and unforgiveness. Shine the light of truth that I may truly see; speak the words of truth that I may truly hear, and be freed from the chains of my past. I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.Padayon sa pagbasa
