Get behind me, Satan!

Mt 16:21-27

Jesus began to show his disciples
that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer greatly
from the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes,
and be killed and on the third day be raised.
Then Peter took Jesus aside and began to rebuke him,
“God forbid, Lord! No such thing shall ever happen to you.”
He turned and said to Peter,
“Get behind me, Satan! You are an obstacle to me.
You are thinking not as God does, but as human beings do.”

Then Jesus said to his disciples,
“Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself,
take up his cross, and follow me.
For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it,
but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.
What profit would there be for one to gain the whole world
and forfeit his life”
Or what can one give in exchange for his life?
For the Son of Man will come with his angels in his Father’s glory,
and then he will repay all according to his conduct.”

Mary Queen of Heaven Missionaries to Offer Presentation

The Mary Queen of Heaven Missionaries will be here the weekend of August 27/28 to offer information of their apostolate in the Philippines.

Their Mission:

We, the Mary Queen of Heaven Missionaries commit ourselves to make Jesus and Mary, the true living inspiration and example of our lives. We give full faith and love to the Catholic Church and promised to be faithful to her teachings, living our life in simplicity, justice integrity and unity. We truly dedicate ourselves to help the poor sinners return to God and the outcasts of society to recover their dignity as His children.

We are moved by the desire to walk the same road Jesus Christ had taken in reaching out the poor sinners and the outcasts of society. In our poverty and meekness, we commit ourselves in bringing back these people to God’s fold and thereby let them come to realize His infinite love and mercy.

It is the vision of our community to help rebuild the church by uniting these women, victims of prostitution, with the rest of God’s people. In doing so, we make them feel that they are not forsaken nor forgotten but loved and understood. Little by little we make this dream a reality by providing them a shoulder to lean on, a listening ear, an understanding heart, a friend who stand by them in their needs.

We concern ourselves in assisting these children of God in their pursuit of living a new and decent Christian life. We provide them a temporary place they can call “home” where they can have their spiritual, emotional and social reformation. Furthermore, we will also train and equip them with skills for a decent source of livelihood.

We beseech the help of Mary, our Mother, St. Joseph, the Worker, St. Therese of the Child Jesus, patron saint of missions and all the angels and saints in heaven.
