Feast of St. Blaise

It is the feast of St. Blaise today which I already knew last night but I was not very familiar with that blessing of the throat thing.  Blaise also sounds like bless and that is how I really felt today.

It's been a while since I had reading reflection so I will make one for today.

"Let him alone and let him curse, for the LORD has told him to."

From the first reading, it made me realize that always in my life, there will be people who ridicule me.  And I must not be mad at them or curse them back because it is God's will that made them do it.  It made me stronger and reflect more.  Those experiences made me remember the song "Pilgrim's Theme."  I do not want to do what is required of me.  I do not like meeting their expectations.  That is why I think I am procrastinating.  They made the standards that I should know these and that.  And as I've said, I hate meeting someone else's expectation.  I do not like what they want me to be.  And since they expect less, it now drives me to become more. :D  What they did to me is a blessing.

“Go home to your family and announce to them all that the Lord in his pity has done for you.”

That is from the Gospel.  And I really felt that God is telling me that.  My desire to be with God is growing deeper.  I am reading more spiritual nourishment materials than my compre reviewers.  I think God is telling me to stop desiring of "entering" and serve the Lord starting with my family.  The first person that comes to my mind is my brother.  He used to be a cute sacristan that looks like an angel whenever he is in his cassock and surplice.  But now I cannot even have him within the vicinity of the Church building.  He is still a good person as he was.  He is literally a good person (yung description ng isang genuine na mabait na bata, magalang na hindi lang pa-pampam yung po at opo, as in the good one among the children)

I really love having this feeling of being blessed.  But being a blessing to others is much more fulfilling.   I really felt the warmth of God enveloping me.  And that was what happened today.  I became an assistant to others.
