Director's Message

"He himself bore our sins in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed." – 1 Peter 2:24

Dear Co-Missionaries of Our Lady,

           As we, once again, reflect and contemplate the passion and death of our Lord Jesus Christ in this Holy Season of Lent, may our hearts rest on an open and generous disposition so that we may be able to lay down before Him our sins, especially our innermost, sometimes intentionally denied, dark sins. The Catechism of the Catholic Church 1850 defines sin as “an offence against God.” It is anything that contradicts and goes against the very nature of God: grace, love and life! Sin besmirches the very image and likeness of God in an individual and instills selfishness, hatred and death. Sin totally polarizes us against God as it brings us in an absolutely opposite position with Him, which hinders the divine spark in us to ignite and passionately gear us completely towards a full communion with God. A sin does not stand alone objectively, rather it parasitically sticks itself on a willing human host which when unaddressed thrives and roots itself deeply.

          This season let us attend to addressing the parasites within us. Jesus came to address this in our humanity. He unimaginably bore those sins in Himself even when they are absolutely in contradiction to His very Self as God, which is a sure sign of His sacrificing and unconditional love for each of us. Through His passion, death and resurrection Jesus expelled the parasites called sin and the spaces they occupy in humanity replacing them with His very life that restores us the strength to develop a profound friendship with the Father: a life of righteousness. Thus, selfishness is destroyed by grace, hatred melted by love and death bested by life.

         Lent teaches us to hold precious this transformative gift of Jesus from the cross by means of our efforts to avoid sin and not will it in our lives for the right reason of love for God. There are practical Lenten Disciplines that could sustain us in our saga against sin, namely prayer, fasting and abstinence, and almsgiving. All these make us aware of the seriousness of the season that calls us to holiness, which is practically the keeping of the life won by Christ for us on the cross. Let us, therefore, fortify our resolution to employ the proposed ancient disciplines especially in this Year of the Laity so as to fully respond to our vocation to become saints and heroes whose lives are healed of sin and radically changed to righteousness and whose lives bring healing to others through the cross of Jesus Christ.

         May Mary at the foot of the cross be our hope and inspiration as we endeavor to remain faithful to Jesus whose sole desire is to keep us in the position of life against death and in the state of grace against any sin.


Yours in Jesus and Mary,

Fr. Raymund S. Cruz

On the day of Pentecost, Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice, and proclaimed: «You who are Jews, indeed all of you staying in Jerusalem. Let this be known to you, and listen to my words. You who are Israelites, hear these words. Jesus the Nazorean was a man commended to you by God with mighty deeds, wonders, and signs, which God worked through him in your midst, as you yourselves know. This man, delivered up by the set plan and foreknowledge of God, you killed, using lawless men to crucify him. But God raised him up, releasing him from the throes of death, because it was impossible for him to be held by it. For David says of him: 'I saw the Lord ever before me, with him at my right hand I shall not be disturbed. Therefore my heart has been glad and my tongue has exulted; my flesh, too, will dwell in hope, because you will not abandon my soul to the netherworld, nor will you suffer your holy one to see corruption. You have made known to me the paths of life; you will ...
