2nd Sunday of Lent
Pls Read God’s Silent Message: Mk 9:2–10
Have you heard some at your age, with these lines?
“Sana pala, I didn’t give in that much, di sana ako na-broken hearted!
Sana pala, I didn’t keep secrets from my parents, na-guide sana ako!
Sana pala, di ako nagmadali, na-enjoy ko pa sana ang pagka-bata ko!
Sana pala, nakinig ako, di sana …”
Guess what, would you know that your parents share the same sentiments with you
“Kung sana lang nasabihan namin sya, di sana sya nasasaktan ngayon!
Kung sana lang nalaman namin, di naman nya kailangang maramdamang mag-isa sya!
Kung sala lang di kami na-awkward na masabihang stage parents, we could have enjoyed TIMES TOGETHER!
Kung sana lang, nakinig sya at napakinggan namin sya, di sana…”
Ang daming “sana”, ang daming time na parang nasayang na!
If dadating ka sa point na parang kulang na ‘yong time, saka mo lang masasabi sa sarili mo:
“Sayang, ‘di sana ako naghesitate na tingnan ang dapat kong makita,
‘di sana ako nagdalawang isip na sabihin ‘yong dapat kong sabihin;
naging humble sana akong ipakita at iparamdam na kailangan ko ng tulong;
kailangan kong maramdamang di ako nag-iisa.”
Millenials and “Me-linya” … come to think of it, “to each his own!” … sometimes, we just don’t realize and recognize that we both share the same sentiments towards each other in the so-called “generational gap.”
Madalas kesa minsan, we fail to make “both ends meet” kasi we are focused on our own emotions and expectations.
Today’s Gospel is reminding us to be spiritually awake and not miss God’s glory in action:
“The Lord Jesus not only wants us to see His glory –
He wants to share this glory with us.
And Jesus shows us the way to the Father’s glory: follow me – obey my words – take the path I have chosen for you and you will receive the blessings of my Father’s kingdom – your name will be written in heaven.”
We would miss God’s glory and action if we wouldn’t strive to obey “as children” and submit to the path that God has chosen for us “as parents.” The Antidote to future regret is to align as parents & child NOW!
Life is too short, we should maximize time, appreciating and enjoying “having each other” while we still have all the opportunity to “make things up with each other”. #sunset
