Sabbath Day is a day to celebrate and to love: Reflection by Cynthia Abegail

“Again he entered the synagogue, and a man was there with a withered hand.  They watched him to see whether he would cure him on the sabbath, so that they may accuse him.  And he said to the man with a withered hand, “Come forward.”  Then he said to them, ‘Is it lawful to do good or to do harm on the sabbath, to save life or to kill?’ But they were silent.  He looked around at them with anger, he was grieved at their hardness of heart and said to the man, ‘Stretch out your hand.’  He stretched it out and his hand was restored.’  (Mk 3: 1-5)  The Lord clarified the meaning of Sabbath.  It is a day of healing, of love and of care.  It is not a matter of just obeying the law but Jesus came to fulfill the law.  Sabbath is a day to save life, not a day to kill.  One may have obeyed the intricacies of the law and will not dare work on the Sabbath, but failed to help his neighbour in need.  Where is the meaning of Sabbath there? Again, it is the law of love which is important, as Jesus has demonstrated.  Praise God!

Come to me all you that are weary: Reflection by Prayer Aid


Come to Me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.  Matthew 11:28
If today is a messy day, we do not have the inner calm or peace of mind, or clarity of thought we really want and need, let us not worry, let us just tear our focus away from what is bothering us and fix it on the Lord.   To the extent we can, let do all we have to aware that we are in His Presence, He is watching over us, and whenever we feel the fear getting out of hand let us stop and turn to Him and find peace.  The more we decide to believe that the Lord is faithful and live by faith we can overcome all challenges and grow in our faith.  We will find the calm, peace and clarity of mind only in Him… have a blessed day.

(Thank you to Jane of Prayer Aid Group for the good of trusting in the Lord at all times especially on storms in our lives.  We will get the peace of mind and calm in our struggles only in abiding Lord Jesus.  Excellent).  Cynthia in behalf of New World.

PRAYER OF INTERCESSION: ST JOSEPH

PRAYER
O, St Joseph, whose protection is so great,
so strong, so prompt before the throne of God,
I place in you all my interest and desires. Oh,
St Joseph, do assist me by your powerful
intercession and obtain for me from your divine Son
all spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
So that having engaged here below your heavenly
power, I may offer my thanksgiving to the most loving
of Fathers.
Oh, St Joseph, I never weary contemplating you, and Jesus;
I dare not approach while he reposes near your heart. Press
Him in my name and kiss his fine head for me and ask him
to return the kiss when I draw my dying breath.

St. Joseph, patron of departing souls, pray for me.

*It has never known to fail...
Say for nine mornings for anything you may desire.
Prayer from Italy

A Secret: Poem by Cynthia Abegail

POEM: A SECRET


This is a love poem dedicated to our valued readers...Cynthia

A Secret

My heart never lies to you,
It beats jazz and blues anew
Like a mandolin hymn array
A secret that hides yesterday!

Face so ruddy and melon pink,
Overshadows the stars O' sink
Fingers nimble, cold and shaky
A secret that hides today!

Whispered "I love him dearly,"
Echoed "I miss him tenderly"
Shouted "I like him sincerely"
A secret that hides tomorrow!

Be quiet, don't kiss and tell,
Shy and laden as nightingale
Joy so elusive as scarlet hues
It's a secret by ebony mews!

THE CHICK AND THE EGG: SHORT STORY (E-BOOK) BY ARIANNA ROSE PHILIP

YOUNG ARIANNA'S(NOW about 11 YEARS OLD) E. BOOK/PAPERBACK BY WWW.AMAZON.COM
THE CHICK AND THE EGG (E-BOOK)

Arianna is a sweet, imaginative, and humorous seven year old first grader (now older) who has enjoyed creating stories before she could write. I recall her dictating stories to whoever was sitting closest to her. I believe Arianna's passion for writing stories and poems comes from a combination of her special talents, her grandfather, a writer himself, and from her preschool experience that taught based on a Reggio Emilia approach. Arianna learned early on to observe the simplest of details in nature such as the petals on a flower or the leaves on a tree. Her observations along with her imagination are the source of her poems and stories.

A COLORFUL PICTURE OF ORANGE FISHES BY FREE WALL PAPERS

THE ORANGE TREE BY JOHN SHAW NEILSON (Excerpt)#FORWARDED BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL

THE ORANGE TREE
The young girl stood beside me. I
Saw not what her young eyes could see:
--A light, she said not of the sky
Lives somewhere in the Orange Tree.

--Is it, I said, of east or west?
The heartbeat of a luminous boy
Who with his faltering flute confessed
Only the edges of his joy?

Was he, I said, borne to the blue
In a mad escapade of Spring
Ere he could make a fond adiu
To his love in the blossoming?

--Listen! the young girl said. There calls
No voice, no music beats on me;
But it is almost sound: it falls
--This evening on the Orange Tree..

The Holy Infant Jesus


ONLY THEE FORWARDED BY MARIA CASSIA AUSTERO











ONLY THEE
Aboard one's life, not perfect and stray,
All fall short and miss the mark at bay
No other gods before me, no idols lay
Thine commandment at Sinai I weigh...
Forgive me Lord, sometimes weak---

As the eyes and heart revel so bleak,
Gaze at fanciful reality, icing so sweet
Promises illusions, then feast not fast!
Swirled by the breeze of raw devotion,

Blinded by reverie, starlight oblivion
Hid from the truth for it will set free,
A slave to a bondage that reels glee!
Only Thee is the vision of eternity--

With tears woke up dreams of vanity,
Thy love searched for me in gulley
Downtrodden on tracks and canny!
Only Thee is the First and the Last,

Should quest of life not wary and rust
Emblazon my heart, yet trip and cast
Coming back, thanks Lord at the dusk!

Hold my weary hands and boon heart,
Caught me as an eagle swoop at nest
Reddish wounds dried and then blest
Thine touch revives my spirit O' zest.
No more idols, no more flimsy views

No more gods, no more daring mews
Thine grace is enough, gifts so much
Thine love suffices, mercy and solace!

Do you still not realise? Mk 8:19-21


“When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many baskets full of broken pieces did you collect?  They said to him, ‘Twelve.’  And the seven for the four thousand, how many baskets full of broken pieces did you collect?’  And they said to him, ‘Seven.’  Then he said to them, ‘Do you not yet understand?’  Mk 8: 19-21


Even the apostles miss the point during that time.  How much more with us, the ordinary faithful.  Sometimes, we prioritise the physical food over the spiritual food of heaven to the point of gluttony!  What we have to eat: with obsession, what restaurants are the best?  We did not say that one will not seek the finer things in life.  What we meant is which is more important?  When one internalise that the Eucharist, The Body of Christ and the Word of God must be prioritised, then the other physical bread is relegated to the background.  Just like, “No one can have God and mammon at the same time, no one can have God and obsession with food at the same time.  He will hate one and love the other!  God bless.
