Read the text in your Holy Bible.
When King Belshazzar (son of Nechadenezzar who inheried his father's throne) gave a banquet and ordered to bring the gold and silver vessels that was taken from the temple in Jerusalem. Suddenly in the midst of their celebrations, the fingers of a human hand appeared, writing on the plaster of the wall.
The king face blanched, his thourghts terrified and his hip joints shook and his knees knocked. Daniel was consulted and he said to the king, "You have rebelled against the Lord of heaven. MENE, TEKEL, PERES. Mene means God has numbered your kingdom and put an end to it; Tekel, you have been weighed on the scales and found wanting; Peres, your kingdom has been divided and given to the Medes and Persians." **** You and me, must follow the message of God, for if we do not discipline ourselves according to the moral law of our conscience to do what is right and avoid evil, like being intoxicated by material things, desire for fame, and wrong piety, which in itself is, a true blasphemy to our Lord our God against his first commandment. In our evangelization, we must focus not on devotions but teach the Biblical Truth.
Psalm David 3:62
Sun and moon, bless the Lord; praise
and exalt him above (the canonized saints)
forever. Give glory and eternal praise to him.
E.Gary Villanueva, MD, PhD, ScD, FACP: For your information: Let me share, St. Francis, "Admonitions XXIII: (1) Blessed is the servant who would accept correction, accusation, and blame from another as patiently as he would from himself. (2) Blessed is the servant who when he is rebuked quietly agrees, respectfully submits, humbly admits his fault, and willingly makes amends. (3) Blessed is the servant who is not quick to excuse himself and who humbly accepts shame and blame for a sin, even though he did not commit any fault. We are challenge not to retreat ourselves, but to show we are also strong in spirt to our friends who we love and respect. Ilearn this in the seminary during my diaconate.

Read the text in your Holy Bible.
Jesus said to his disciples, “They will arrest you and persecute you; they will hand you over to synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors because of my name. This will give you an opportunity to testify. So make up your minds not to prepare your defense in advance; for I will give you words and a wisdom that none of your opponents will be able to withstand or contradict. You will be betrayed even by parents and brothers, by relatives and friends; and they will put some of you to death. You will be hated by all because of my name. But not a hair of your head will perish. By your endurance you will gain your souls. **** You and me, must not be afraid with ISIS, and all those threat, and adversaries that besiege us . God will give us sufficient grace, strength, and wisdom to face any trial and to answer any challenge to our faith. (Many of us will just shy ourselves from all our friends because of gossip, slander and envy.) All those things are our challenge, not to give up, but show them brave and bold, your a witness of Christ words and with that you gain the joy and freedom of the gospel.
Lord have mercy, in your goodness
and compassion, wipe out my offenses
and cleanse me of my sins.
Say one "Our Father" as Jesus taught us.
My daily mass will be offered to Amado Trinidad, MD'58 , may the PEACE of the Lord, be with him in Jesus name.
