Corporal Works of Mercy – Holy Communion with the Poor

Corporal Works of Mercy – Holy Communion with the Poor

To fulfill our mission of responding to the hungers of the human family especially the poor and the weak by doing the Corporal Works of Mercy out of love of God, this coming July 12, the second Friday of the Month is our monthly schedule of our 2 major Social Apostolates namely, the Medico-Dental Clinic (pastoral care for the sick) and the Feeding Program for the Poor. Corporal Works of Mercy through The Healing Mass for the Sick We will begin the day with the usual Healing Mass, which is liturgically called as Mass for the Sick. This Holy Eucharist, the source of the Corporal Works of Mercy, will be celebrated in Cebuano and presided by our newly ordained priest, Fr. Marlon Reyes, SSS who usually gives deep and inspiring homilies. In this Mass, all the sick are lifted up to God especially those who are participating in the celebration and our parishioners. The Mass-goers write the names of their sick relatives and friends in a record book, which is offered along with the offering of Bread and Wine during the Presentation of the Gifts or the Offertory. This book is placed at the side of the Altar. The Mass continues as usual. After the Mass, the people are called to the center aisles to line up for the laying-on of hands. The presider prays over on each one so that all their infirmities, be it spiritual, physical, emotional, psychological and social sickness may find healing by the power of the Holy Spirit. We use a Trinitarian Formula which we draft ourselves: “Loving Father, send your Holy Spirit upon your servant and heal all his/her infirmities through Christ our Lord. Amen.” This is just a simple formula and yet filled with faith and conviction that God cares for His people and He heals them for He is a Loving God.  This Mass, therefore, is an expression of our faith that true healing comes from God and that medical practitioners are God’s instruments. The Free Medico-Dental Clinic – one of our Corporal Works of Mercy While others are still lining up for the healing, the Medico-Dental Clinic is opened. People from all walks of life especially the poor, registers for the free medical consultation and free medicine and vitamins. We, however, ask for a very small registration fee of 10 pesos, equivalent to $.04. This is for them to feel that they at least paid for the medical consultation and medicines and not just given as dole out.  It is, in a way, giving them some sense of dignity. Though many come from other parishes, they are always welcome to receive our services. The corporal works of mercy inspires us to also welcome non-Catholics and non-Christians. This clinic is open from 9:00 am until 12:00 noon. Those who are attending to them are volunteer doctors and nurses. Some are student nurses. Our Pastoral Care for the Sick team which is composed of 2 committees, the Medico-Dental Team headed by Edna Eugenio, MD and the Parish Community Health Team headed by Zuziez Rosete, RN, handles this program that fulfills the corporal works of mercy of the parish. The Feeding Program for the Poor Our corporal works of mercy this day extends until 11:00 o’clock with another program for the poor.  Some of those who received our free medical services stayed and together with our poor parishioners they are given free lunch. The food is prepared by the Social Apostolate Commission headed by Lingling Buzon who is also our San Roque Chapel Animator. She coordinates the parish corporal works of mercy ministries. Those who come for the feeding are children...

Eucharistic Conference: The Call of Duty

Eucharistic Conference: The Call of Duty

“We are either in the process of resisting God’s truth or in the process of being shaped and molded by his truth.” We can never deny how religious Filipinos are. Some people go to church everyday, once a week, twice or even more. All out of love and deep faith in God. The thought of having the Eucharistic celebration becomes truly a part of their daily life. The journey of faith has long been started but has that journey been meaningful and clear to everyone? The cry and thirst for truth is a poverty everyone cannot deny. Yes, we truly believe and tried to be of good worth of God’s love but still there has always been a room for learning the faith we stand for. As Catholics, we are obliged to help our brothers and sisters in Christ in any good ways we can. For us, duty calls not only when people asks for help, we help even when they don’t ask for it. Many of the us admits that we still have a lot to learn about the Catholic’s Liturgical Norms. Not everyone knows why is this and that is. We get inside the church and pray, sing and reflect but through it all, do we know why we kneel? Why we say Amen? And why pray? Basically, we have our own reasons and understanding on these but the Church herself has the answer.  All we have to do is ask and truth shall be rightfully given to us. Now these cries for learning and thirst for truth are over for the Sanctuario Eucaristico – Sacred Heart Parish which now offers you the best opportunity you must not miss. The very chance to know what you have not known yet, to clarify all the questions in your mind about your faith and to participate and at the same time help in taking part of this monthly event in the church. The learning process is a step by step walk towards faith. We take one step at a time but each step with faith. This so called conference is where we continue to build our faith in good foundations the church itself provides. Every month, we learn new things and realize what we’ve not realize before. Reality might be, all these time, under our noses. As we embrace the things we learn and share it to others, we continue the teachings Jesus had started way back a very long time. This conference is a two way process. The church gives, the people receives and vice versa. When we continue to commit ourselves to change, we not only change ourself, or another person. It might be one way to finally changing the course of humanity towards what they say dying church. The living church continues to enrich the people with good learnings. As long as we believe and do something on that belief, no matter how small it might be, it will always grow like a big tree with deep roots and fruits. Let these roots be your foundation, your stand in life which is your faith. Do bear fruits of goodness and love. Let the church nurture your tree all the time by participating in the opportunities offered to you by the church. Start little and end up big. Come and join the Eucharistic Conference and you will surely nurture your tree. Become a wonderful tree before it’s too late. The church is always open to everyone, so start now and grow healthy. Let Jesus nurture you. Come and Join us now. (Jessica Sarah...
