Homily by Fr. Romie- Jun Peñalosa

In this Sunday homily in Saint Michael Kalibo, Fr. Romie- Jun reminds us that Advent teaches us to long for Jesus. If we are going to wait for Jesus, let us also long for Jesus. We long for so many things in this world, but as Christians, we must long for Jesus- the permanent resident of our lives.

Mary longed for Jesus and loved Him beyond telling. Loving beyond telling means that we long for Jesus and we love Him in a way that no words can describe. Our love should be manifested through our actions because the love in our hearts is reflected on what we do. We need to cultivate a love that is far away from the love stories that we watch in movies or hear in songs, but a love that is everlasting and a love that gives room for God’s will. Just like how Mary fulfilled God’s purpose for her- to bear Jesus, God’s only- begotten Son. But the question is, how important is the will of God in our lives?

We pursue our own happiness and achievements that are temporary without considering God’s will in our lives. These things may make us happy for a short while, but it would not bring peace in our lives. Time is ticking. Are you going to ask God for His will for you? Your success will end at the end of your life but if we follow God’s will, it will last for eternity. Follow His will for you. Make room for Him to fulfill the destiny that He has set upon you.
