Gospel alive #1 - Wisdom



11. 'Since you have asked for this,' God said, 'and not asked for long life for yourself or riches or the lives of your enemies but have asked for a discerning judgement for yourself,

12. here and now I do what you ask. I give you a heart wise and shrewd as no one has had before and no one will have after you.

1 Kings 3:11-12

Kita ambil masa in untuk mengingati dan berdoa untuk arwah Joseph Justin Rammy Jambai (CEKL87)

Tuhan Yesus Kristus, engkau memiliki cinta yang begitu besar kepada sahabat2MU Martha, Maria dan Lazarus,dan sering berkunjung ke rumah mereka. Sukacita mereka adalah sukacitaMU dan kesedihan mereka juga sangat menyedihkanMU. Engkau mengenali segala isi hati kami dan tahu kesedihan yang kami rasakan karena saudara kami yang kami cintai yang telah meninggal dan mendahului kami dalam iman.

(Joseph Justin Rammy anak Jambai)
Kami serahkan dengan penuh iman ke dalam tangan-MU yang penuh kasih jiwa saudara yang kami kasihi. Bawalah dia dekat padaMU, hiburlah kesusahan kami sendiri, dan kuatkanlah iman kami akan hidup kekal yang akan datang.

Ya Tuhan, anugerahilah dia istirehat kekal dan sinarilah dia dengan cahaya abadi. Semoga jiwanya dan jiwa-jiwa semua orang beriman yang telah meninggal dunia beristirahat dalam damai dalam kerahiman Allah. Amin.

Kristus telah wafat,
Kristus telah bangkit,
Kristus akan kembali.

Engkau telah Wafat Yesus, tetapi sumber kehidupan memancar pada jiwa-jiwa, dan samudera belas kasihan terpancar bagi seluruh dunia.

Oh Pancaran Kehidupan Kerahiman Ilahi yang tak terselami, rangkumkanlah seluruh dunia dan kosongkanlah DiriMu atas kami..

Ya DARAH dan AIR yang memancar dari HATI YESUS sebagai pancaran belas kasihan bagi kami.. Aku Percaya KepadaMu (3x)

πŸ™πŸΌ Yesus Raja Kerahiman Ilahi
Aku Percaya kepadaMu

πŸ™πŸΌ Santa Maria Bonda berbelas kasih
Doakanlah Kami

πŸ™πŸΌ Santa Faustina..
Doakanlah Kami

Say NO to sour faces - Fr Greg

Funny thing today,

I've never seen fr. Greg as happy as he was today..dancing, laughing and smiling around during the blessing after mass. He started blessing people from the altar till the end of the church!



He spoke about the CHOICE program and I think his message came at the perfect time for me.

For the full effect just imagine him giving the "Greg expression". Hahahaha

"Why we young Catholics like to show sour face? People wish good morning and we reply saying: what's good about the morning!"
"We young Catholics should be more joyful and celebrate together."
"To share relationships and to be joyful and to celebrate together."

And then he continued by mentioning, "if we want to welcome others to the Catholic faith, how are we to do it if we aren't joyful enough and are not able to celebrate it?"

That is why we must join the CHOICE program lah...



A sneak peak of what we did yesterday... Fr Greg, are you proud of our sweet joyful faces!!!? Hehehe

The feast of Corpus Christi and St. Anthony

The feast of Corpus Christi is more than a reminder that Jesus is indeed the Bread of Life. It is also a celebration of his generous hospitality. When he feeds the multitudes, we see his warm welcome to those who had come to hear him speak about God.(Matthew 15: 29 -37)


They were drawn to him, attracted by his loving kindness. Their desire for what he had to give, the food of the spirit, was strong and he gave it to them in abundance. And yet, although he knew that they hungered for more than simple bread, he did not ignore their physical needs. 
Today is also the feast of St. Anthony. He is the patron saint of lost souls. 


Therefore, let us dedicate today and pledge to cultivate a sense hospitality towards other especially in preparing for the next CHOICE weekend. We also seek the intercession of St. Anthony to bring back lost souls to Jesus.

Trinity - The desire for God

God always wants to be in union with us. 
The question is... how much do we desire Him?
Does our heart burn for Him or does it reject Him?
Do we only want God when it is convenient and neglect Him at other times?

5 Ways to be Successful in Adoration


Have you ever gone to adoration? Have you tried, but felt defeated like I first did, and occasionally still do? Here’s a list of 5 ways to be successful in adoration:

1. Be Patient
I was recently talking with a group of friends about their experiences of adoration. A lot of them expressed the same frustration—that sometimes, time seems to stand still, 5 minutes seem eternal. Have you ever been out of shape and tried to go for a one mile run. Suddenly, 5 minutes into the run, you’re huffing and puffing and you realize you’ve only gone one block. Rather than focusing on the success — you just ran for the first time in months!! — we tend to focus on the defeat. Adoration can be a bit of a work out… for your soul. So set yourself up for success. If it’s been awhile, or your first time, 5 minutes of sitting with Jesus is a good goal. Slowly increase your time—you’ll be amazed at how God increases your capacity to be with Him!

2. Bring Scripture
Reading scripture is always a good thing, but is especially helpful and meditative during adoration. There are many prayer books and apps that contain daily scripture readings. I particularly like reading the Psalms and reflecting on a verse that speaks to me on that given day. As I read scripture I ask myself: How is this scripture speaking to my heart? What changes is God asking me to take? How will I go about making those changes? I make this part of my prayer.

3. Pray the Rosary
The rosary is a beautiful prayer, one that many saints have prayed. St. Louis de Montfort said “’When the Holy Rosary is said well, it gives Jesus and Mary more glory and is more meritorious than any other prayer.” What better way to give Jesus and Mary glory than to pray the rosary in front of the Blessed Sacrament? There are many guides and apps you can print/download to help guide you through this form of prayer.

4. Listen to Praise and Worship Music
When I’m the only one in the Church or chapel, I love to start adoration by listening to praise and worship music. “Restless” and “I Shall Not Want” by Audrey Assad, “Lay it Down” and “Lord, I Need You” by Matt Maher, are just a few of my favorite songs to listen to during adoration. The music and the lyrics help me quiet myself and turn my thoughts to God.

5. Be Okay with Silence
It’s so easy to go a whole day without silence. We get in the car and turn on the radio, we have our phones, with days worth of music, in our pockets, and at the end of the day there’s Netflix. Even if we are in a quiet environment, we are usually accustomed to checking our phones—for a text, the latest Facebook drama, the trending hashtag on Twitter, the newest picture on Instagram, the list goes on.

Don’t get me wrong, I fall prey to every one of those habits. Which is why, when I’m sitting in adoration, I can find it difficult to focus. I’ve become so accustomed to the business of the world, that being truly still, truly silent, can seem uncomfortable, foreign. But that discomfort is ok, good even. In Audrey Assad’s “Restless” she sings “And I’m restless, I’m restless, ‘Til I rest in You.” I find this sentiment to be so true when I am in adoration. Sure, the first few minutes I am restless as I begin to wind down. But eventually, I am filled with insurmountable peace. Allow yourself to sit in silence and to just be with Jesus.

In an apparition to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, Jesus spoke these beautiful words: “I have a burning thirst to be honored by men in the Blessed Sacrament.” Go to adoration, even if it’s just for 5 minutes. Jesus desires to be with you, to have you gaze upon Him, as He so lovingly gazes upon you.

MARY SINGS OF THE LOVE OF GOD

May 31
THE VISITATION 
MARY SINGS OF THE LOVE OF GOD

"God is interested in even the smallest events in the lives of his creatures -- in your affairs and mine -- and he calls each of us by name. This certainty that the faith gives enables us to look at everything in a new light. And everything, while remaining exactly the same, becomes different, because it is an expression of God's love. Our life is turned into a continuous prayer, we find ourselves with good humor and a peace that never ends, and ev­erything we do is an act of thanksgiving running through all our day. ‘My soul magnifies the Lord,' Mary sang, ‘and my spirit re­joices in God, my Savior.'" 37

Let us offer to our Mother today:

The Holy Rosary said with concentration and affection.

Rosary Gathering

On 30th May 2017

Our Choice team had a rosary session together in conjunction with the Month of May and the 100th anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima. Through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we prayed for the future well being of our families, country, peace and blessings and the grace to continue to serve God.

We saw some new members and welcomed the old ones back. Thank you all for coming!


But the question that was repeatedly asked later during makan was... where was Datuk Ron?

Tadaaaaaa... I was here people.. here is the proof!!! You can spot me in an instant.


As you can see... Datuk Ron did his magical appearance!!! huhu, πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

MARY: THE CHANNEL OF GRACE

"Her power before God is such that she can obtain anything that we ask for, and, like any mother, she wants to answer our prayers. Like any mother, also, she knows and understands our weaknes­ses. She encourages us and makes excuses for us. She makes the way easy for us, and even when we think there is no possible solu­tion for our worry, she always has one ready to offer us." 36

MARY: THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN

May 29
MARY: THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN  

"She lives now and is protecting us. She is there [in heaven], body and soul, with the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. She is the same person who was born in Palestine, who gave herself to God while still a child, who received the message from St. Gabriel the Ar­changel, who gave birth to our Savior, and who stood beside him at the foot of the Cross. In her, all ideals become a reality. But we should never think that this sublime greatness of hers makes her in­accessible to us. She is the one who is full of grace and the sum of all perfections . . . and she is also our Mother."  35

Let us offer to our Mother today:

The "Hail Holy Queen" at each hour.

We take this opportunity to acquaint ourselves with CEKL 99 members by inviting them to share about their life's passions, God and Noah's tattoo πŸ˜œπŸ˜œπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸŸπŸŸ⛵⛵


1) What are you passionate about?
Travel. It is the only thing you buy that makes you richer πŸ’²πŸ’²πŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸ˜†. It gives you a deeper perspective on life.

2) When you think about God – what is the first thing that comes to mind?
Love, pure and eternal love. None that this world can offer and fathom.

3) If  God suddenly appears before you today, what will you say to him?
Thank you Lord for all that you've done for me. I hope that I would have fought the good fight, that I would have finished the race and that I would have kept the faith when I come home to you. I love you Jesus.

4) If Noah went out and got a tattoo – what would it be and why? 
A dove with an olive leaf in the mouth because it's at that very moment where he realised that he could finally get some fresh air on land after living a year with a potpourri of animal poop 🐾🐾on board. Pity the guy.

MARY: TAKEN UP TO HEAVEN

May 28
THE ASSUMPTION
MARY: TAKEN UP TO HEAVEN

"Mary has gone to heaven in both body and soul, and the angels rejoice. I can imagine, too, the delight of St. Joseph, her most chaste spouse, who awaited her in paradise. Yet what of us who remain on earth? Our faith tells us that here below, in our present life, we are pilgrims, wayfarers. Our lot is one of suffer­ing, of sacrifices, and privations. Nonetheless, joy must mark the rhythm of our steps. ‘Serve the Lord with joy' -- there is no other way to serve him."  34

MARY: MOTHER OF FAIR LOVE

May 27
MARY: MOTHER OF FAIR LOVE


"This is what explains Mary's life -- her love. A complete love, so complete that she forgets herself and is happy just to be there where God wants her, fulfilling with care what God wants her to do. That is why even her slightest action is never routine or vain but, rather, full of meaning. Mary, our Mother, is for us both an example and a way. In the ordinary circumstances in which God wants us to live, we have to try to be like her."  33

Let us offer to our Mother today:

The resolution to say, before going to sleep every night, three Hail Mary.
