A CASE AGAINST SECULARISM AND HUMANISM Without God, man falls into disarray because he lacks guidance, wisdom, virtues and most of all the capacity to do good. He has no basis for morality because there are no objective principles for him to follow. His only purpose in life is to enjoy and indulge in pleasure, after which he would just be annihilated from the world. And with everyone seeking his own interests, how can the world ever be united in love, forgiveness and charity as one big family? This will lead to a destruction of humanity.

A LIFE OF JOY There are two ways to search for happiness. One way is in individualism and self-indulgence, the other is in communitarianism and service. Those of us who choose the ways of the world will end up frustrated and be deprived of real happiness in life. The life that the Lord wants to offer us is a blessed life. This blessed life is achieved through our solidarity with our fellowmen and with God. Happiness is to be identified with every man, especially those who are suffering, hungry, rejected and in pain. Only then will we be able to reach out in love and compassion.

Best Practices for Using the Daily Scripture Reflections
  • Encounter God through the spirit of prayer and the scripture by reflecting and praying the Word of God daily. The purpose is to bring you to prayer and to a deeper union with the Lord on the level of the heart.
  • Daily reflections when archived will lead many to accumulate all the reflections of the week and pray in one sitting. This will compromise your capacity to enter deeply into the Word of God, as the tendency is to read for knowledge rather than a prayerful reading of the Word for the purpose of developing a personal and affective relationship with the Lord.
  • It is more important to pray deeply, not read widely. The current reflections of the day would be more than sufficient for anyone who wants to pray deeply and be led into an intimacy with the Lord.

Note: You may share this reflection with someone. However, please note that reflections are not archived online, nor will they be available via email request.
