Homiletic Tips for 23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

by Bishop Mylo Hubert Vergara, D.D.

How deep is your concern for your others? What are you willing to do to show your love for them?

1) Reading from Ezekiel: Try your best to warn them of doing wicked deeds; 

2) Responsorial psalm: Motivate them to soften their hearts and listen to the voice of God; 

3) Reading from Romans: Follow the command of the Lord to love your neighbor as yourself; 

4) Gospel of Matthew: Do fraternal correction in a loving way; 

5) Three steps to a fruitful dialogue: truthful confrontation, sincere communication, loving compassion;   

6) A final thought: When in dialogue with a person, remember Steven Covey's 5th habit-- 'Seek first to understand, then be understood.'

Advise to preachers: Your homily should confront people about evil, communicate God's love and, above all, show the compassion of Christ.

Bishop Mylo endorses "Live Christ, share Christ" Missionaries

The following is the complete text of Bishop Mylo's endorsement of the "Live Christ Share Christ" missionary workers' evangelization efforts.

Aware of the many issues and concerns confronting our people today especially those that delve on moral principles I would very much welcome in our diocese of Pasig movements and organizations who will stand for Christ and his teachings.

The missionary workers of Live Christ, Share Christ (LCSC) is a Christian Catholic lay organization devoted to Evangelical missions and value formation initiatives.  In its desire to bring about moral recovery and values transformation to different institutions, they have initiated "Live Christ, share Christ" whose mission is geared towards grassroots lay evangelization.

In connection with the Year of the Laity celebration and in response to the pressing needs of the times I am endorsing to your Reverences the "Live Christ, Share Christ" to help out with your evangelization ministry.  We hope and pray that many more lay members of the Church will heed our Lord's command to go and proclaim the good News of salvation.

Pasig Diocese to Hold General Assembly of Health Care providers

The Diocese of Pasig Health Care Ministry will hold its First General Assembly of the Health Care providers of the diocese with the theme: "I was ill and you cared for me" (Mt. 25, 36).  The purposes of the activity are to give recognition and appreciation the the Health Care providers during the Year of the Laity and to strengthen and energize their spiritual life by making them realize that they are instruments of the tender, loving care of God.  It is in this field of work that Health Care providers are "called to be saints, chosen to be brave, and sent forth as heroes."

In a letter addressed to all parish priests, DPHCM Director Fr. Joven Antique is calling on all parishes to send at least five representatives from the Health Care organizations to attend this gathering.

"This will be a great moment to uplift the Spirit of the Laity who are engaged in taking care of our sick brethren whom Jesus identified with, 'When I was ill, you cared for me,'" mentioned Fr. Joven.
