HAPPINESS
HAPPINESS (Mark 1:40-45)
By: RD.
Silvester Asan Marlin
Everyone aspires to live happily. Happiness is the right of all people. This type of happiness can vary. For example, a mate, job, fortune, friends, the birth of a child, a promotion, survived the crash or recover from an illness.
Lepers who were told in the Gospel today also want to get well and happy. In Jewish culture, the leper is considered sinful, cursed and scum. Should therefore be removed from common life.
Jesus against the habits of the people who get rid of the leprosy. When the leper came to Him, Jesus welcomed, touched and healed him. Jesus came to earth to save the sick and sinful. This is a tangible manifestation of God's salvation has come to the center of the world.
The leper had been born again. He had saved, acknowledged and returned to the community. He was very rejoiced and proclaimed for  his healing everywhere. He felt God's mercy. His life has been turned into a new one.
Separated from the experience of suffering, illness is very happy. God loves and to save you. Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Russian novelist, said, "No level of wealth that makes us happy, but the relation of heart to heart and the way we see the world. Both attitudes are within our control, so that people can stay happy all this time choosing to be happy, and nothing can stop it. "
Happiness is not determined by the amount of wealth we have, but by the love relationship we have. Many people are willingly to sacrifice relationships with loved ones to gain more wealth. When you want to be happy we have to appreciate people more than things.
How do you view that happiness? Because of rich, a lot of money, or because of a close relationship with God? Remember, money and property may be obtained at any time. But the fact it will not be eternal. In contrast, a true relationship with others and God will be eternal. Even bring salvation as experienced by the leper.

A FIVE-MINUTE CATECHESIS AFTER THE EUCHARIST
A FIVE-MINUTE CATECHESIS AFTER THE EUCHARIST
By: RD. Benno Ola Tage
Since mid-June 2011 to mid-June 2012, established by Pope Benedict XVI as the year of catechesis in the Catholic Church. The term of catechesis is the deepening of faith kita.Ini activity is an activity of teaching. In teaching this, people are taught about the sacraments in the Catholic Church, about the saints, liturgy and so on. In short, the activities of catechesis, Catholics deepen their faith, and knowledge of the faith will enhance the appreciation of our faith. Without catechesis, people can be like a blind man, faith without understanding the true faith according to Catholic teaching, or running each according to its understanding.
Since the determination was, until recently, the Cathedral parish has not done anything meaningful to this catechetical year is filled with people of faith builder. We are always faced with the difficulty to find time for catechesis. Meetings and seminars of faith, for the people and officials in order to improve the service as a board member of the Church is not very enthusiastic welcome. Is it to be a way we can do? Yes, we should do something for people of faith development.
An idea came from one corner of the parish in the city of Chicago, the United States. Father Linnan, trying to develop a teaching for people of every Eucharistic celebration. After the announcement, pastor Linnan, uses approximately four to five minutes to give instruction to his people. This method is quite effective. Appointed in each teaching a particular theme. This theme is presented so clearly and so it does not confuse people. What if there are questions to be answered on the occasion of the celebration of the Eucharist outside.
In a conversation with a fellow pastor and parish councils, this idea seems quite relevant to develop in our parish. We are designing how this pattern can be applied in our parish. This is one form of faith formation for people or how berkatekese people.
Do people have an input and suggestions are more appropriate in improving the activity of catechesis in our parishes? One of the obstacles we are the people's curiosity about the Catholic faith is low. It's as if everything is so clear. When we invite discussion of faith, quite a lot of people who struggle to answer ....DETAILS

Aster Soriano was a teacher in a Secondary School on an island in the Middle Filipinos. At the beginning of the school year, Aster always give discourses on school discipline and order, although he is not the Principal. As a teacher who is responsible, he felt obliged to deliver the sermon to his disciples at the beginning of their meeting.
However, after more than seven years of teaching at the school, it seems the values ​​are always the emphasis is never heeded by his disciples. Almost no school days missed from the case of late; there is always a reason for his students to be late. Not a few number of students who openly smoked when resting; let alone read the comic or pornographic novel in progress during the lesson.
Why is all this happening? The reason is clear: most teachers at the school, including Aster did not rules. Students shall not smoke, but smoking in Aster himself while teaching in the classroom. And the countless hours of lessons missed for granted, because the teachers are not fully respected or deliberately late to class, so I can play chess or read a novel in the office.
"What's this? a new school. He speaks with authority. Evil spirits and they were ruled Taan Him "(Mark 1.27). This is a piece of the expression of admiration of the Jews when listening to his words full of power and authority and when to see the actions and attitudes of his life.
In the eyes of the Jews, Jesus' power and kewibaan no doubt. Even his opponents recognized and admired him. His words actually empowered and have a strong influence for each listener and his followers because they contain the truth. What he spake His manifested in action. His words not only contain the power to be obeyed, but move anyone to follow, be followed and respected. If Aster and her fellow teachers to align their words and actions, ....DETAILS

"We have found the Messiah" (John 1:41). Similarly, reporter Andrew cheerfully told his brother Simon Peter. Andreas is very happy that longing for the Messiah has come true in Jesus of Nazareth. The excitement was quickly he shared with his brother. He did not keep the excitement it for himself. Experience an encounter with God would be a remarkable experience for Andreas. It is so much that he felt the need to proclaim to others that they too may come to enjoy it.
Perhaps in the course of our lives, also have a special meeting with the Saviour of the world and rejoice in it. Through today's Gospel story, we are invited to not save yourself the joy that but we proclaim to our brothers and sisters to another. Remember, by baptism we are adopted into disciples and followers of Christ, good news herald, and called to form the excitement agents.
Meet with Christ means that we are saved and nourished by His Spirit. Thus, we live from the Spirit, our bodies become the temple of the Holy Spirit (cf. 1 Cor 6:19). Characteristic life of the Holy Spirit is joy. Glad that has been saved. Therefore, people who live from the Spirit shall bear the fruit of the Spirit in word and action. "Fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, meekness, temperance" (Gal 5:22-23). With life of the Spirit, we become children of God who always humbly said to him, like Samuel, "Bersabdalah O Lord, your servant is listening" (1 Samuel 3:10).
So, let our brothers and sisters share the experience of our encounter with Christ to the people that are around us that they were having fun just like us. God bless you all, this day for ever. Amen

POLITICAL BEHAVIOR reflection wary of Herod

On January 8, 2012, we celebrated the event magnus three men visited Jesus born in Bethlehem. This story is what we celebrate in the liturgy we called the "Feast of God Sightings." Reading the Gospel message contained in this celebration of the Gentiles are described in the magnus come and worship Jesus our Lord. However, we highlight the behavior of the characters who rarely preached Herod. In the story of the Magi who visited Jesus, we encounter the figure of Herod. Herod is the ruler of Jerusalem and Judea. He is a smart politician and cunning. He developed a Greek-style buildings in the Palestinian areas. At the end of the period, he was very suspicious of its rivals. In fact he ordered to kill his family members who are assessed and proven to rival him. Herod died a wife, sister and three children because he judged them are those who would seize power.
Masciavelli, a thinker Italy 500 years ago launched a review that to gain power by lawful means. Through his book "Il Principle", he was to review the strategies how cunningly seseorng gain and maintain power. Yes, it is tempting and seductive power. He could make them dark conscience who desire to get and retain power. The behavior of rulers such as Herod was the ruler who justifies the means, provided that he came to power.
But Herod did not want to show the reckless attitude. It has a clever diplomatic skills. Herod called the chief priests and scribes and asked them where the king / messiah of the Jews was born. Them with the answer: "In Bethlehem of Judea. To the three people that Magnus, Herod ordered go to Bethlehem

However, before all the stations visited, the parish priest fell ill. Tagor priest was forced to continue the planned pastoral visitation alone.
At one point, he was awaited by a group of people furthest from parish stations. To reach the site, he had to walk more or less 5 hours. Because of that, he was wearing shorts that are free to walk on the slippery ground and climb.
On arrival at the border village, he saw a group of parents gathered. He believed that they were waiting for him. After greeting each other, an old man asked him, "Son, a new priest was there where now? Is the street child were both with him? "Oh, is still far behind, father! Another moment he arrived with two assistants! The priest replied Tagor while continuing on his way to the village. Twenty minutes later, two assistants arrived. An old man of the elders, again asked, "Where is Father? "Pastor dah 'came first. Does he not pass here. It is wearing shorts. He is the Father Tagor "said the maid. At that, they stood up and rushed to the village. They saw he was in front of the church while enjoying his cigarette butt.
When the Jews occupied in waiting and asking, when the Messiah came to save them, John menajwab calmly: "In the middle of your feet you do not know him, and him, which came later than me" (Jn 1:26-27 ).
Appearances of Jesus are simple and very ordinary and did not convince the nation of Israel. His figure is very different from the picture and their expectations. Like most people, the people of Israel are stuck in a frame of mind about God and his own shadow. Most people, the people of Israel are stuck in a frame of mind about God and his own shadow.

Scripture readings during Advent speaks volumes about the preparation for the coming of the Lord Jesus either the first or second time. To welcome the coming of the Lord that we commemorate on Christmas Day, as well as the second coming of the Lord on the Day of Judgment, the holy book invites us to prepare ourselves. First reading the prophet Isaiah spoke of the call, so that mankind prepare the way for the Lord. The second reading speaks about the purpose of preparing the way for the Lord is preparing themselves, preparing the mind or heart. Peter reminded the people of God to live holy and righteous to be found worthy in His sight. Reading the Gospel speaks of John the Baptist's call to repeat the message of the prophet Isaiah, that were converted, baptized and forgiven his sins (Mark 1:4). These are all saints and holy before God.
