Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 27: 1, 3, 5, 8b-9abc (Commentary) by Florence D’Costa

Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 27: 1, 3, 5, 8b-9abc
1
 The psalm of David before he was anointed. The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear? The Lord is the protector of my life: of whom shall I be afraid? 3 If armies in camp should stand together against me, my heart shall not fear. If a battle should rise up against me, in this will I be confident. 5 For he hath hidden me in his tabernacle; in the day of evils, he hath protected me in the secret place of his tabernacle. 8 My heart hath said to thee: My face hath sought thee: thy face, O Lord, will I still seek. 9 Turn not away thy face from me; decline not in thy wrath from thy servant. Be thou my helper, forsake me not; do not thou despise me, O God my Saviour.

My Views:
I consider this psalm to be so full of faith and so very deep.  David sees God as his light and salvation and he is not afraid.  He also sees God as the protector of his life.  David is not afraid because he believes that God has hidden him in his tabernacle.  Every single verse has such depth and meaning of blinded faith in God.  Well, my dear brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, if we also have the faith of David, God will also be our protector.  He will hide us in His tabernacle where no evil can touch or harm us.  In the days where we experience darkness and trouble, God will be our Light.  He would send his angles to protect us from all terrible danger and evil attacks.  It is important to seek God’s face and to be in His Presence 24 x 7.  To keep our gaze on Christ all the time, would save us from all peril and harm.  When we seek God’s  face all the time, God will be so close to us and He will be our Saviour.  When God is our Saviour, for sure, we will have nothing to fear.  My experience is that God;s love for us is so great that He sent His only Son to save us.  So, when we seek Christ with a sincere heart, Christ will come and dwell within us.  He will bring His Father to dwell in us and we will dwell in Him.  So, we will be safe and secure and no harm, evil or sin can ever touch us.  We when we seek God and when we are in His presence, how can any evil come near God or near His Tent.  Harm, evil and sin can come near us only when we walk away from God’s presence.  But if we stay in God’s Presence and in His Light, we will be safe from harm, evil and sin.  Light, happiness, joy, security and God’s protections will be OURS.

This is a happy time for all Christians.  It is a time when we go out of our way to spend money and time seaching for gifts that we could buy for our loved ones and friends. Well, now we are waiting for the arrival of Baby Jesus who is the Saviour of the W0rld.

During the First Week of Advent, let us spend some quiet time and meditate deeply on the coming of Baby Jesus.  What does the coming of Jesus really mean to us.  I will give you an exercise.  Take a pen and a note book and write down as to what you are expecting during this Advent Season – Spiritual Gifts – Material Gifts – Emotional Gifts.  What type of gifts are we expecting?  What type of gifts do we need?  How do we think Jesus is going to help us?  What Gift are we going to give to Baby Jesus this Christmas.  What gifts are we going to give our family and friends.  Maybe our attitude needs to change for the better?  Let us think and have some quiet time…..

When a Catholic Man and a Catholic Woman who really and truly love each other, get married in a Catholic Church by a Catholic priest in the Presence of God, that is the best thing that could happen.

Romans 7:15 by Florence D’Costa

Image result for Romans 7

I think this is a very interesting verse. Paul himself was struggling with sin.  He says, I do not understand what I DO  but What I hate I DO.  What he wants to do he does NOT DO.  I guess we all struggle with this concept.  To be perfect and free from sin is quite a difficult task.  We can only avoid sin through the Grace of God.  The Grace of God is very powerful and if we have God’s Grace, you can be sure that you will be always able to avoid sin and its consequences.

So, my dear brothers and sisters, I think it is best that we pray continuously to be in the PRESENCE OF GOD.  For if we are continuously in His Presence, He will give us the Grace to be free from sin and its consequences.

SO LET US PRAY CONTINUOUSLY = 24 x 7

Intercessory Prayer for Victory by Florence D’Costa

Let us all pray for one another.  Let us also pray for those who are attracted to the same sex.  Let us also pray for those who have terminal illnesses and who want to Euthanasia to be introduced.  Let us all come into the presence of God and plead for Him to have mercy on Australia.

Your Presence – Planetshakers

Lord God, Heavenly Father, in your presence is where we long to be.  Never leave us, nor forsake us.  We need you Lord. We plead for you to be Our strength and Our Joy.  Lord Jesus Christ, we need to be where you are because we love your presence.  Come Holy Spirit, Love us and strengthen us, for without you, we will be lost.  Thank you Lord Jesus Christ for dying on the cross for each one of your children.  Amen!
