Fr. George’s Weekly Message: Scriptures and I: “One does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God” (Mt 4:4)

SSacred Scripture or the Bible, otherwise known as the Word of God is the source of who we are as Christians. In scriptures we are defined, and our character as Christians and children of God is formed. The word of God is not something writ-ten down on paper like any other words or letters, but God’s Word infused with power; nay the word of God took flesh in Jesus Christ and dwelt among us (John 1). For Jesus says his words are spirit and life (John 6:63). The word of God embowers, it forms, it emboldens, it encourages, it heals, it protects, and it enliv-ens. The word of God is “living and effective, sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating even between soul and spirit, joins and marrow, and able to discern reflections and thoughts of heart” (Hebrew 4:12). So, at once the word of God is a guide to right living and it protects; it causes us to have deeper reflections of our lives since nothing is hidden from IT. And in our battle against evil and temptation, the word of God is a veritable tool. For St. Paul advices us that “In all circumstances, hold faith as a shield, to quench all [the] flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God” (Eph 6:16-17). Indeed, in the temptation of Jesus in Matthew 4, scripture was the basis of the interlocution between Jesus and Satan - for scrip-tures says, “The Lord, your God, shall you worship and him alone shall you serve.”
The word of God speaks to our various situations in life. The official prayer of the church (the liturgy of the hours), which ordained deacons and priests are obligat-ed to pray daily, is fundamentally praying the scriptures, and using same to sanc-tify the hours of the day. And in the words of the CCC, the church “forcefully and specially exhorts all the Christian faithful … to learn ‘the surpas-sing knowledge of Jesus Christ’ (Phil 3:8) by frequent reading of di-vine scriptures … Let them remember, however, that prayer should accompany the reading of sacred scriptures, so that a dialogue takes place between God and man. For ‘we speak to him when we pray; we listen to him when we read the divine oracles’” (CCC 2653). Further, “Through Sacred Scripture, when it is listen to and meditated upon in silence, divine graces are poured out on man” (Robert Cardinal Sarah, The Power of Silence, 2016, No. 4 @ p3).
As far as our lives are concerned, the word of God is what we need to have a hap-py, faithful, and successful life. Yes, other books about life may be good read, but always remember that going to the source of life, the word of God is always, and will remain the best. It behooves on us therefore to be friends of scriptures; be familiar with the word of God; read it, pray it, and allow it to guide you in whatev-er circumstance you may find yourself, and in whatever decision you may have to make. Make this intentional in your everyday life.
First Annual Parish Picnic
It turned out to be a day of keeping faith with the parish family, and the weather was a blessing, and those who attended testified to how pleasant it was to be to-gether as a parish family! I thank members of the evangelization Committee who organized and make the picnic a reality. I thank every single person and groups that made donations of money, food, time and effort towards the success of the picnic. And I specially thank all parishioners who were physically present, it was wonderful to have you all around in such a relaxed atmosphere. For those who were not able to be present for whatever reason, we hope that you would make it next year. Everyone present said, “This is how memories are created!” God bless you all.
