St. Mathias

Why Me?

Sometimes I wonder why was I chosen to be a Priest.
Who am I to deserve so much Blessings and Opportunities.

The Lord Jesus would say in the Gospel today: “You have not chosen me, I have chosen you. Go and Bear fruit that will last.” Jn. 15:16.

I still wonder why me but one thing is clear that I have to go, in gratitude for the blessings I received, for being chosen, to go and serve and continue loving and fulfilling the mission at hand that I was given to bear fruit that will lasts.
(We celebrate today the Feast of St. Mathias, chosen to replace Judas. Why Mathias? We wonder why.)

This is a site of "Leaps of Faith" experiences and reflections. Be it Philosophical, Theological, Practical or Personal. It is also a site of Biblical reflections. But Above all, This is a site for YOU and ME.

"Leaps of Faith"

"LEAPS OF FAITH" Can be a religious movement of a person, an inner movement of belief, of trust on the greatest power of all, The Supreme being..Our Creator and Maker..Our God. They can be resolutions of a person everyday in his life to move forward, to be a better person, and to start a new life. They can be decisions of a person in times of great uncertainties, when he is not sure of what will come or happen and he makes a leap of faith. They can be steps, difficult steps that a person makes on his way to change or to start anew. Or they can simply be a persons resolve to fly, to widen his horizons, to learn more about life and to grow. These are Leaps of faith we make everyday and in great moments of our lives and they are worth considering and reflecting.
