Beautiful Girl

11Aug07

I do not know why did I do what I just realized that it’s stupid.

My very adorable senior asks me to go to her place yesterday, and she rarely get rejected on any request of hers. One, because she’s pretty, and two, because she’s among the few 5% of all the civil engineer girls in the campus. Even her friends said that it’s rare for anyone to go to anywhere near her, maybe because she’s arrogant, or, just because she doesn’t want to be too famous. I am among the few whom she never hesitate to lend a helping hand to. As for the request, I was to offered for a dinner, a home cooked. I does miss that now and then, but I still reject.

I guess it’s time for me to re-think about my not-so intimate relationship, and that’s what long distance are. It’s never satisfying, and later, some fragment of her is getting blur and forgotten. The only thing that I remembered is the feeling with her, her nice smell, her voice, but I won’t remember how she smile, still photograph are a just representation of her, and a lousy place she’s in, I won’t be able to video conference with her, and her and my phone isn’t 3G yet.

What will happen if I accept an invitation of other girl? Must I tell her every detail? I still love being single~ I missed that.

She

23Jul07

Love: lie or truth,
Sometimes it’s the unhappiness.
Love: cry or smile,
The illusion of living in a paradise.
Love: there’s no age,
Being old or young,
An ocean of roses or thorns.
Love: a lot who love,
Few know how to love.

I miss you Viv

15TH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME C

15TH JULY 2007 (SDC/SDC)

Deuteronomy 30:10-14; Psalm 18:8-11. R. v. 9; Colossians 1:15-20

Luke 10:25-37

Theme: THE LAW OF THE LORD GIVES US LIFE, WISDOM AND HAPPINESS

1. Today is the 15th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C. The readings today tell us that the Law of the Lord is good; the Law of the Lord gives life, wisdom and happiness!

The gospel today tells us that a lawyer approached Jesus and asked him, ‘Master, what must I do to inherit eternal life?’ Jesus answered him with a counter-question, ‘What is written in the Law?’ The lawyer answered, ‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and you must love your neighbor as yourself.’ And Jesus said to him, ‘you have answered correctly, do that, and you will inherit eternal life.’

The lawyer knew the law, but Jesus told him that he had to do what the law tells him to do in order to inherit eternal life!

But in order to justify himself for asking the question, the lawyer asked Jesus a second question, ‘And who is my neighbor?’ Again, Jesus answered him with a counter-question, ‘Which of the three – the Priest who passed by the dying man, the Levite who also passed by the dying man, or the Samaritan who helped the dying man – proved himself to be a neighbor to the dying man?’ And the lawyer answered, ‘the one who showed mercy to the dying man.’ Again, Jesus said to him, ‘Go and do the same yourself.’

Again, the lawyer knew who was a neighbor to the dying man, but again, the lawyer had to do the same himself, that is, “help the dying man” in order to inherit eternal life!

It is not enough to know the law; we have to do what the law tells us to do in order to inherit eternal life! (IBC)

2. The first reading follows the theme of the gospel reading. The first reading tells us that the law is not some mysterious or secret knowledge far above us in heaven, that we need someone to bring it down to us, so that we can hear it and keep it; neither is the law far away in the seas beyond us, that we need someone to bring it to us, so that we can hear it and keep it; but the law is very near to us, it is in our mouths and it is in our hearts for us to observe, that is, we can talk about it, and we can remember it! (CSB) And most importantly, we can do it! (Jer 31:33; Ezek 36:26-27 / NJBC) Again, the same chapter 30 of today’s first reading tells us that if we keep the law we will find life! (Dt 30:15-20)

3. The responsorial psalm tells us that the law of the Lord gives us life, wisdom and happiness! That is why it is more desirable than the purest of gold and it is sweeter than honey from the comb!

Thus we read in the responsorial psalm: “The law of the Lord is perfect, it revives the soul. The rule of the Lord is to be trusted, it gives wisdom to the simple. The precepts of the Lord are right, they gladden the heart. …. They are more to be desired than gold, than the purest of gold and sweeter are they than honey, than honey from the comb.” (Ps 18:8-9a. 11) And thus the response of the responsorial psalm: “The precepts of the Lord gladden the heart.” (Ps 18:9)

4. The second reading does not follow the theme of the day, but the second reading has something very important to tell us! The second reading tells us that when Jesus Christ came, he came not only to save man, but also to save the whole of creation! When man sinned, man not only destroyed other man, but man also destroyed creation! That is why when Jesus Christ came, he came not only to save man, but also to save creation! (v 20 / Roland J. Faley)

To begin with, the second reading tells us that even before salvation, everything was created in Him, through Him and for Him!

Thus our late Pope John Paul II exhorts us Catholics: “I should like to address directly my brothers and sisters in the Catholic Church, in order to remind them of their serious obligation to care for all of creation. The commitment of believers to a healthy environment for everyone stems directly from their belief in God the Creator, from their recognition of the effects of original and personal sin, and from the certainty of having been redeemed by Christ. Respect for life and for the dignity of the human person extends also to the rest of creation, which is called to join man in praising God. (cf. Ps 148:96).” (Message for World Day of Peace, 1 January 1990, n. 16.)

Again, do not destroy creation, do not destroy the environment, do not cut the trees, do not pollute the seas, do not pollute the air, do not poison the earth with chemicals, do not destroy the other species, etc.; but do protect the environment, do plant trees, do reduce, reuse, and recycle, do live a simple lifestyle, do conserve energy, etc.!

5. Today in the Eucharist, we celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and we eat his body and drink his blood, and our Risen Lord will give us the Holy Spirit, to help us keep the law, and the law will give us life, wisdom and happiness!

Amen!

2. Do you believe that the law of love is the greatest law?

3. Do you love God? Do you love your neighbor? Do you love yourself?

4. Can you love without the help of the Holy Spirit? Can you love with the help of the Holy Spirit?

5. Who is your neighbor? Are you a neighbor to those in need? Are you a Good Samaritan?

6. Do you know the law? Do you do what the law tells you to do?

7. Do you care for creation? How do you care for creation? Do you protect the environment? How do you protect the environment?

(Ps 18:8-9a. 11)

(ii) “For in him all the fullness was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile all things for him, making peace by the blood of his cross [through him], whether those on earth or those in heaven.”? (Col 1:19-20/CSB)

12. What does the Prayer over the Gifts say to you: “Lord, accept the gifts of your Church. May this Eucharist help us grow in holiness and faith.”?

Divided Egyptian clerics debate whether nudity during sexual intercourse
invalidates marriage.

CAIRO – An Egyptian cleric’s controversial fatwa claiming that nudity during

sexual intercourse invalidates a marriage has uncovered a rift among Islamic
scholars.

According to the religious edict issued by Rashad Hassan Khalil, a former
dean of Al-Azhar University’s faculty of Sharia (or Islamic law), “being

completely naked during the act of coitus annuls the marriage” .

The religious decree sparked a hot debate on the private satellite network
Dream’s popular religious talk show and on the front page of Sunday’s

Al-Masri Al-Yom, Egypt’s leading independent daily newspaper.

Suad Saleh, who heads the women’s department of Al-Azhar’s Islamic studies
faculty, pleaded for “anything that can bring spouses closer to each other”

and rejected the claim that nudity during intercourse could invalidate a
union.

During the live televised debate, Islamic scholar Abdel Muti dismissed the
fatwa: “Nothing is prohibited during marital sex, except of course

sodomy.”(what about orals, fingering, hand jives etc ?)

For his part, Al-Azhar’s fatwa committee chairman Abdullah Megawar argued
that married couples could see each other naked but should not look at each

other’s genitalia and suggested they cover up with a blanket during sex.
