Christ’s Call (John 1:35-42)

Christ's Call (John 1:35-42)

Gtpministries.org – Dear brothers and sisters in Christ. The Gospel of John 1:35-42 describes an initial meeting between Jesus and two of John’s disciples, who later became disciples of Jesus. John shows Jesus as the “Son of God” and when Jesus asks them, “What do you seek?” they followed Him. Andrew, one of the disciples, immediately invited Simon Peter, his brother, to meet Jesus. After the meeting, Jesus gave Simon a new name, Cephas, which means rock.

The initial encounter between Jesus and His disciples reflects the uniqueness and depth of Christ’s calling. John’s unequivocal reference to Jesus as the Son of God begins this momentous series of events, and His disciples respond to His call. Jesus’ question, “What are you looking for?” creates a moment of spiritual introspection, inviting them to search for deeper meaning in their lives.

The disciples who followed Jesus with longing demonstrated a desire to know Him better, not just as a teacher, but as their Savior. In the invitation to see His dwelling place, Jesus invites them to come closer, to delve into His life. This is a call to deep communion with Him. Andreas, quickly sharing the experience of his encounter with his brother, creates a model that inspires us to share the joy of our faith with others.

The giving of Simon Peter a new name indicates the transformation that is possible through an encounter with Christ. From a simple fisherman, he was identified as a solid “rock” in the formation of the Church. This shows that His call brings transformation and a higher purpose.

In a broader context, the Gospel of John 1:35-42 underlines the importance of being willing to respond sincerely and quickly to Christ’s call. Andrew and Simon Peter demonstrated a readiness to leave everything behind and follow Jesus without hesitation. This creates a powerful picture of the required response to Christ’s call, namely the willingness to leave everything behind to follow Him.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ. The Gospel of John 1:35-42 gives us an in-depth look at personal calling and the transformation that is possible through an encounter with Jesus Christ. Jesus’ question, “What are you looking for?” remains relevant in our lives today. This is an invitation for spiritual reflection, moving us to assess our motivations and goals in life.

The importance of sharing faith experiences with others is also a valuable lesson. Andrew not only followed Jesus himself, but enthusiastically introduced his brother to Jesus. This confirms that Christ’s call is not only for personal gain, but also to give blessings to others.

In everyday life, we are invited to be witnesses of Christ, sharing His love and truth with others. The good news we have in Christ must be conveyed to others through words and deeds. The willingness to share personal experiences with Christ is a clear manifestation of response to His call.

Giving Simon Peter a new name teaches us that Christ’s call brought significant change. Through meeting Him, we can discover potential that we may never have realized. This motivates us to face His call with courage and confidence that Christ can shape and use our lives for His glory.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ. Christ’s call is a call to know Him, follow Him sincerely, share the joy of our faith, and be ready to experience a formative transformation. In modern life which is full of challenges, this Gospel reading provides a solid foundation and inspiration for following in the footsteps of followers of Jesus Christ. His call is not just for the past, but a call that is relevant and alive for every soul who is open and ready to receive Him.

Love and Care for Others who are Sick (Mark 1: 29 – 39)

Love and Care for Others who are Sick (Mark 1: 29 - 39)

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ. Indifference and indifference towards others who are sick can be caused by our selfishness, as individual humans. However, when living as a social creature in society, changes in attitudes may occur.

For example, when we ourselves are sick, the attention and concern of others (family, friends, neighbors, etc.) makes us aware and think that a helping hand of love or care and concern for others who are sick is important, especially when we are far from other people. parents or family. At the very least, praying for those who are sick is a form of love and concern for serving others who are sick whenever and wherever they are found.

Saint Arnold Janssen, SVD once emphasized that the sick and the victims they bring in pain and suffering are a blessing for the mission and salvation of many people. That is why we need to change our egoic and indifferent nature and start developing a caring attitude towards those who are sick, even just by praying, so that God will strengthen us and give healing.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ. The Gospel reading of Mark 1: 29 -39 which is read today is an illustration for all of us, that Jesus is a healer or doctor who really loves and cares for sick people, both body and soul. Jesus’ real love made Him even more loved and missed by many people.

Jesus healed all the sick and demon-possessed people who were brought to Him. They all experienced joy thanks to the power of God in Jesus. Where Jesus is, there is joy and love.

We are also invited to give love and care to others. This work of Jesus should be kept alive until forever remembering the salvation that Jesus preached and continued by His Church is the integral salvation of soul and body, today and in the future, which must be realized here and now (Hic et nunc).

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ. For us Catholics, realizing the news and work of Jesus who loves and cares about serving the sick is very urgent to get attention. Because, the Church’s task should not only be to pay attention to mental or spiritual health, but also physical or physical health, which of course can be achieved if the food is healthy, the place to live is healthy, and the economy is healthy to support oneself and one’s family.

The duty and calling of all of us, especially the Ministry of Religion today, is to provide assistance and help those who care for the sick through fostering family assistance and counseling as a form of caring that is aware that in this work and assistance, we bring to life Jesus’ love and concern for the sick. . By moving to help make Indonesia physically and mentally healthy, in this way Catholics can manifest the message of the love of Jesus Christ to everyone.

May the love of Christ keep us from being selfish and not caring about others, especially the sick.

Witness of Life (Mark 1:21-28)

Witness of Life (Mark 1:21-28)

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ. The Evangelist Mark tells the story of the beginning of Jesus’ journey by presenting a very good impression of the people in Capernaum. It is said that people were amazed at Jesus’ teaching. In fact, according to them, Jesus taught as a person in authority, not the same as the scribes.

With this depiction, the evangelist Mark actually wanted to emphasize that Jesus had a teaching authority that came from God. This authority gave Jesus authority that made Him respected by his listeners.

In the following stories, we will be able to understand why Jesus’ preaching was always able to inspire awe in the hearts of the people who came to hear Him. This is because Jesus is always able to make the words he conveys come alive.

The teaching authority that Jesus had was very different from the teaching authority that the scribes had. Torah experts are respected because they are experts in Torah law who explain the Torah itself for followers of the Jewish religion. The scribes were tasked with compiling rules and regulations for every situation in Jewish religious life. This is what makes them have a very high position and become members of the Sanhedrin (religious court) alongside the high priest and Jewish elders.

Meanwhile, to describe Jesus’ teaching authority, the evangelist Mark uses the term respected. This shows that even though Jesus was not included in the group of scribes who had a high position in society, he still had the authority to teach.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ. When it is said that Jesus is respected and not just revered, there are two important things behind this. First, as the Son of God, Jesus certainly received the power to teach from God. He not only conveyed the Word of God, but He was the Word itself. Jesus is the fullness of God’s promise of salvation.

Second, Jesus lived out every teaching he conveyed. Unlike the scribes and Pharisees who tended to be kind and carry out religious commandments when in public, Jesus lived out the law and all the contents of His preaching well.

On many occasions, the Gospel texts often provide changing descriptions of the reactions of the people who heard the teachings and witnessed the actions of Jesus. On one occasion, the people were amazed by what He said and did, but on another occasion they could not accept or even rejected His presence (cf. Mark 6:1-6).

However, behind the rejection of Jesus, there is a sense of admiration for his figure. When the people of Nazareth expelled Jesus, they were amazed at the power of teaching that Jesus showed them. The Gospel recorded the statement they made “What wisdom was given to Him? How can such miracles be done by His hands? Isn’t He the carpenter, son of Mary, brother of James, Joses, Judas, and Simon? Aren’t His sisters here with us?”

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ. For us, the testimony of Jesus’ life is a guide in living out the Catholic faith. Just as Jesus not only understood but was serious about living the Torah law, so too should we not just have the status of a Catholic but live that Catholicism. The authority of each of us as children of God will be seen in our attitude of life and deep appreciation of faith.

Let’s strengthen our commitment to bear witness to evangelical life as children of God.

God’s Plan to Save Man (John 3:14-21)

God's Plan to Save Man (John 3:14-21)

Gtpministries.org – Dear brothers and sisters in Christ. It doesn’t feel like we have entered the fourth period of Lent in March and we deserve to always be grateful to God for the protection, health and safety given to us.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ. The Gospel of John 3:14-21 records a conversation between Jesus and Nicodemus, a religious expert. Jesus used the parable of Moses raising the bronze serpent in the desert to save the Israelites who were bitten by poisonous snakes, as an illustration of salvation through His sacrifice on the cross. Jesus would be “exalted” on the cross to save humanity.

Jesus taught that God loved the world so He sent His Son, not to judge the world, but to save it. However, those who believe in Him will be saved, while those who do not believe will be judged by the truth. Light has come into the world, but men chose darkness because their deeds were evil. Those who do righteousness will come to the light, while those who do evil will love darkness.

The conversation between Jesus and Nicodemus provides insight into the nature of God’s love and His plan to save humanity. The analogy of the bronze serpent in the desert refers to the moment where the Israelites were saved from the bite of a poisonous snake by the mere sight of the bronze serpent held aloft by Moses.

Likewise, faith in Jesus Christ as the Son of Man lifted up on the cross brings salvation. “Exalting” Jesus on the cross reflects His sacrifice that removes sin and gives mankind the opportunity to live in salvation. This emphasizes the importance of faith as the key to obtaining eternal life.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ. Jesus revealed that salvation comes through faith in Him as Savior. The parable of the bronze serpent illustrates that salvation is the result of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. This shows God’s infinite love, because He not only loved the world, but also gave His Son as a way of salvation.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ. First, the message about the sacrifice of Jesus Christ as the way of salvation emphasizes the importance of sacrifice and forgiveness. In the midst of the complexity of modern life which is often filled with conflict and division, this message invites us all to practice an attitude of forgiveness, prioritize kindness, and seek ways of peace in all situations.

Second, how God’s love for the world is something universal and unlimited. It emphasizes the importance of compassion, empathy, and concern for others, regardless of differences in culture, religion, or social background.

Third, the call to live in light and avoid darkness teaches us all to choose truth and integrity in all aspects of life, both in personal actions and in social and political policies.

Fourth, as believers, we are called to be witnesses of God’s love to the world. In the multicultural and multireligious context of Indonesia, this message invites us all to practice tolerance, respect differences, and work together to create social justice and sustainable peace. All of this refers to the call to live according to the teachings of Christ, bringing peace and love to others.

A Life Based on the Love of Christ

A Life Based on the Love of Christ

Gtpministries.org – Since the beginning of life in the Church, the demands and conditions for becoming a disciple of Christ have seemed easy and simple. Namely, a person must express his faith in God through Jesus Christ. After that, the person is baptized with water and the Holy Spirit.

This simple condition does not mean that it is enough to be a Catholic just by saying the confession of faith or the creed of faith. Being a Catholic is of course bound by the obligation to live and practice one’s faith correctly and well, in accordance with God’s own command. And this obligation is not to bind a person to a law that does not make him free, but so that God’s love becomes more alive and fruitful and gives full joy to everyone who is able to carry it out. The law that is lived and carried out with love sends every believer to the experience of God’s love.

Each of us certainly wants to experience what is called ‘full joy’ so how do we fight for it or obtain it? Jesus clearly gave the answer: “If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.” Perfect joy only comes from acts of love according to Jesus’ commands.

On this Sunday, the Lord Jesus continued this important message and called it a new commandment for us to love one another. The basis of love is the Father who loves Jesus as His Son and Jesus who loves us as His friends. So we are encouraged to remain always in His love. The Lord Jesus actually showed a new locus for feeling love and loving. The new locus is Himself as the center of love.

For Jesus, love for God becomes perfect when we have an inner attitude to obey all His commandments. Jesus has obeyed the command of the Father in heaven to give himself as the redeemer of the world. For us, the most important commandment according to Jesus’ teachings is to love God and neighbor to the end.

God gave a new commandment to love one another because He has first loved us. God not only gave the command to love one another, but He already loved us very much by giving His own life on the cross. He himself has set an example and role model.

This true love directs us to inner repentance and invites us to imitate Him when we carry out His commands by carrying out our duties and works of service every day. Serving God is realized in working to fulfill His will. That is the content of His command. And we do the work we do in serving God with a heart full of gratitude and joy. Why? Because the Father’s love for His Son has been the basis for the exercise of our love for others and is also a concrete statement of the sign of Jesus’ friendship with us.

The service in love that we live and carry out through obedience to carry out His commands is supported by the help of God Himself through the Holy Spirit, as the Spirit of God accompanied the work of Peter (reading I), to serve and enthrone Cornelius. The love that we manifest in service should take the form of a praxis of love that is full of sacrifice and inclusive love, applicable and aimed at everyone whom God pleases regardless of ethnicity, race, religion, and should even apply to our enemies.

Let us live in love and live our lives with love and bear fruit in love because God is Love (reading II), and only to God, our life achieves its purpose and obtains its fullness. The most important form of life as a follower of Christ is obeying God’s commands, living in the spirit of love and wanting to practice that love for one another, especially for anyone who is burdened by the covid-19 pandemic.

Jesus Himself has shown the essence of His coming to this world by giving up his life for the salvation of humans and teaching all of us, His followers, to want to do the same: “This is My commandment, that you love one another, as I have loved You.”

God always accompanies us with His Holy Spirit when we live and practice that love in our real actions and work in our daily lives. Amen.

President of Argentina: Abortion is a serious murder

President of Argentina: Abortion is a serious murder

BUENOS AIRES,  – Gtpministries.org – Argentina’s President, Javier Milei, said abortion “is murder that is aggravated by the bond between mother and child”. He also condemned “voluntary termination of pregnancy,” a euphemism for killing a child in the womb.

Milei’s statement was part of a speech dated March 6, 2024, at Cardenal Copello High School in Buenos Aires, where Milei once attended school.

In Argentine criminal law, “aggravated murder by family ties” is a level of murder where the murderer and victim are related by blood. During her election campaign, Milei had promised that she would repeal her country’s permissive abortion laws. He targeted pro-abortion activists who commonly wore scarves emblazoned with the words “legal, safe and free abortion,” displayed during their campaign to legalize abortion in 2020 early in President Alberto Fernández’s term.

“For me, abortion is murder aggravated by bondage and I can show it from a mathematical and philosophical point of view, from liberalism and also from a biological point of view,” Milei said in front of an auditorium filled with students and teachers at the school.

“What politicians do is party and pass laws to a generation that hasn’t even been born yet, and some politicians, who also try to kill, are killers wearing green scarves,” Milei said as reported

Although Milei’s administration has repeatedly stated its opposition to abortion, in the first three months of his term as president, he has not introduced a specific bill that aligns with this idea. In Argentina, bills can also be submitted to congress by the executive branch.

Days before the 2023 election, Milei’s then-candidate and now-vice-president Victoria Villarruel said in an interview that repealing the abortion law was an issue that was “not very urgent considering the economy is very tough.

However, last February Congresswoman Rocío Bonacci, a member of La Libertad Avanza (Progress of Freedom), the winning political coalition led by Milei, introduced a bill to repeal existing abortion laws. This sparked controversy within the coalition, as he did not receive coalition approval and the president himself was not consulted.

“This bill is my initiative, not the initiative of the executive branch, and is submitted for consideration by the body of which I am a member. I defend life. “No more, no less,” said Bonacci at the time.

The Hillbilly Thomists band the Dominican friars release “Hard Times” live session

The Hillbilly Thomists band the Dominican friars release “Hard Times” live session

The Hillbilly Thomists have just released the first live session video from their new album, Living for the Other Side. The record features one of the favorite tracks from the record, namely “ Hard Times ” (hard times). For musicians, one of the most difficult things to do in a live performance is recording note for note. However, these Dominican friars were relaxed about completing it. Even the guitar solo is played brilliantly, making the listener feel like they are in the studio with the band. The quality of their performance increasingly shows the unity of their shared mission: Evangelizing through song .

As musicians, the Hillbilly Thomists can stand alongside bluegrass greats like Ricky Skaggs and Béla Fleck. The intro features a stirring vocal harmony followed by a lively chorus and chords as the band enters. Opening and closing the track on this a cappella line gives the number a unique capability.

This band is really fun to watch, as they look like they are having fun, especially the drummer . Playing ancient instruments and wearing simple robes and sandals, the Hillbilly Thomists embody the poor roots of bluegrass . This may be because each member of the band has vowed to live in poverty .

This vow makes the topic of “ Hard Times ” even more poignant. When a group of poor monks sing about hard times, you know those times must be hard . With somber melodies and masterful prose, the lyrics paint a vivid picture of work and suffering. The song acknowledges the struggle of workers, while supporting their human dignity.

From start to finish, “ Hard Times ” is a magnificent piece of Catholic folk music. The song extols the virtues of faith without using overt religious references . Thus the song has great potential for evangelism to crossover audiences. We fully expect to hear secular bluegrass artists covering “ Hard Timesfor years to come.

Relics of St. Thomas Aquinas Carried in Procession for the 750th Anniversary of His Death

Relics of St. Thomas Aquinas Carried in Procession for the 750th Anniversary of His Death

PRIVERNO, Gtpministries.org – On the 750th anniversary of the death of St. Thomas Aquinas, skull revered as a relic of St. Thomas Aquinas is carried in a solemn procession through the cobbled streets of the southern Italian city of Priverno. Bishop Preverino, Msgr. Mariano Crociata led a procession in honor of the medieval philosopher and theologian. St. Thomas Aquinas is considered one of the greatest thinkers in Western civilization who died near Fossanova Monastery on March 7, 1274.

Relics of St. Thomas Aquinas has been venerated in Priverno Cathedral since the 12th century. Previously, the relics of St. Thomas Aquinas was discovered on an altar near the Fossanova Monastery in 1585. There are documents indicating that the reliquary remains of part of the head of St. Thomas Aquinas. Thomas Aquinas originally belonged to “Doctor Angelicus”.

Head Priest of the Cathedral of Santa Maria Annuziata Priverno, Father Alessandro Trani said in the City of Preverino, St. Thomas Aquinas is considered its patron.

“Here St. Thomas spent the last days of his life,” Father Trani told CNA.

“[Aquinas] stayed with his cousin in the Castle of Maenza, and from there he asked to be taken to the Abbey of Fossanova, where he ended his earthly pilgrimage.”

Aquinas died at the age of 48 in a monastery located about halfway between Naples and Rome after falling ill while on his way to attend the Council of Lyons. Three months before his death, Aquinas experienced a profound revelation while offering Mass. At that time, he had almost completed his most important work, the Summa Theologiae or “Summary of Theology.”

After experiencing this revelation, St. Thomas Aquinas told his secretary Father Reginald of Priverno: “The end of my work has come. All that I had written seemed mere straw after the things that had been revealed to me,” and he never wrote again.

Relics of St. Thomas Aquinas was kept at the Fossanova Monastery until 1369 when his relics were moved to Toulouse, France, where the Order of Preachers was founded and Aquinas’ tomb can be venerated today in the Jacobin Church.

The reliquary in Priverno is one of two skulls currently claimed by Church officials to be those of St. Thomas Aquinas. The Dominicans in Toulouse recently commissioned a new relic of St. John’s skull. Thomas Aquinas, who has toured France and abroad.

The procession and celebration of Aquinas in Priverno is part of the biennial celebration of the jubilee of St. Thomas Aquinas by the Order of Preachers. During the jubilee year, Catholics can obtain a plenary indulgence by making a pilgrimage to a holy site associated with the Dominican Order.

The double jubilee year of the Dominican Order will end after the feast of St. Thomas Aquinas on January 28, 2025, the 800th anniversary of Aquinas’ birth. Aquinas was born in 1225 in the Italian city of Roccasecca, about 75 miles southeast of Rome, which at that time was part of the Kingdom of Sicily.

Mgr. Crociata led the procession in Priverno after the Mass in honor of St. Thomas Aquinas in a packed cathedral.

Holy Door in St. Basil’s Basilica Petrus which will be opened the day before Christmas this year

Holy Door in St. Basil's Basilica Petrus which will be opened the day before Christmas this year

VATICAN, Gtpministries.org – Only 293 days or 41.9 weeks left, the Holy Door at the Vatican (Holy Door) will be opened. Officially, on December 24 2024, the Holy Door will be officially opened by Pope Francis. The opening of the Holy Door marks the start of the celebration of the Jubilee Year 2025. The official website for this year’s celebration has been created by the Vatican http://www.iubilaeum2025.va . Starting October 31, 2024, the official Jubilee 2025 mobile application labeled “Iubilaeum25” is available for download.

The only Vatican official from Indonesia, Padre Marco Solo in Rome, Wednesday (06/03/2024) said that it is important for pilgrims or those who will visit the Vatican to know the schedule and also the history of the Holy Door. Therefore, it is recommended that pilgrims who will attend the event download the available schedule.

‚Jubilee highlights can be downloaded from the App Store for iOS and from the Play Store for Android. Through this application, pilgrims can download the Pilgrim Card for free. The Pilgrim Card is also available via the link https://register.iubilaeum2025.va/registration ” said Padre Marco.

HOLY DOOR
The Holy Door is a walled door to the basilica and can only be opened on jubilee days. The first holy door created in the history of Christianity was the Basilica of Santa Maria di Collemaggio in L’Aquila, central Italy. The church was founded in 1288 and was the site where Pope Celestine V was crowned pope on 29 August 1294, and is considered the maximum expression of Abruzzo architecture, as well as a symbol of the city, and was declared a national monument in 1902.

The four main basilicas of Rome have holy doors: St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican (the work of the sculptor Vico Consorti, created in Florence by Ferdinando Marinelli), St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican and St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican. Paul outside the Walls (by sculptor Antonio Maraini), Basilica of St. John Lateran (by sculptor Floriano Bodini), and the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore (by Bolognese sculptor Luigi Enzo Mattei).

Various churches which are traditionally pilgrimage destinations also have holy doors authorized by the Pope making it possible to receive plenary indulgences: for example the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela or the basilica of Santa Maria di Collemaggio in L’Aquila, the Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta in Atri and the cathedral of Notre-Dame de Quebec. In India, the Holy Doors at the Sacred Heart Cathedral, in New Delhi, opened for the first time on 12 December 2015 to coincide with the start of the Jubilee of Mercy.

Also on the occasion of the Extraordinary Jubilee with the theme of Mercy from 2015 to 2016, Pope Francis permitted the opening of the Holy Door also in other cathedrals.

The holy door is an image of Christ, a place of transit to goodness (John 10, 9; 10, 1; Matthew 16, 19). The door of jubilee is Christ himself who introduces us to the heavenly city, which forgives sins and forgives punishment. In the Old Testament book of Ezekiel (46, 1-3) it is stated that doors are places through which humans can meet God.

The most famous jubilee ritual is the opening of the door. The Rite of the Holy Door symbolically expresses the concept that, during the Jubilee, the faithful are offered an “extraordinary path” to salvation.

The official opening of the Jubilee Year occurred with the opening of the Holy Doors of St. Peter’s Basilica. The basilica’s other holy doors were opened in the following days. In the past, part of the sacred door, namely the cement wall, was dismantled before the celebration, leaving behind a diaphragm that the Pope broke with a hammer; then workers completed the demolition. However, on the occasion of the jubilee in 2000, Pope John Paul II introduced a simpler and quicker rite (also because, when on the jubilee of 1975 Pope Paul VI broke the remaining diaphragm of the wall, he was crushed by heavy debris that fell to the ground , not far from him).

After the above incident, the cement wall was then dismantled first, leaving only a closed door which was opened by the Pope by pushing the door. The holy doors remain open (apart from the normal closing at night) until the end of the Holy Year (a full year) and are then closed again with a layer of cement wall.
