Welcome and Prayer
Come upon the presence of the Lord and reflect upon His gift to us… His life and His death.
I want you to imagine that you are in a place where God is there…
It can be a chapel, a retreat house of one of our events. Forget that you are at home wearing your pajamas. I want you to transport yourself there, imagine that you are there in that place where God speaks.
Talk 1 | Scourging at the Pillar
Bishop Honesto Ongtioco, DD:
It is not the suffering of Jesus that saved us, but the Love that went with suffering– before, during, and after.
God tells us we are priceless before His Presence. You are worth more than anything. We are redeemed by His Precious Blood.
Talk 2 | Not Alone
Reach out to people who are alone, ignored, judged, and condemned. You can be God’s Presence to them. God is with you, most of the time through others. This is the best time to encourage people and lift them. Do it regularly especially to your loved ones.
You are not suffering alone. Jesus is there suffering with you. Remember His grace for you. Every time you feel rejected, God is there. Every time you feel unloved, God is there. Every time you feel betrayed, God is there, loving you. Every time you feel like a failure, He is there, carrying you. Every time you feel worthless, He is there, embracing you.
Remember His grace for you. Remember His love for you.
