Yesterday, August 19,I was Invited to celebrate the Novena Mass in my former parish, St. Augustine Parish, Bay, Laguna. It was around 5:30 for the celebration of the Eucharist with the theme, "My heart is restless until it rest on you my God." The Homily revolves around Jesus whom constantly invites us to come to him who are burdensome and needs rest. It is only trough our Lord Jesus Christ that we can find peace in our hearts. First, for four weeks, Christ is inviting us to receive Him, the bread the comes from heaven, the food that will give life and life eternal. Second, Jesus asks us to enter His vineyard and work in His vineyard as today's Gospel speaks of. This vineyard is the Church of which the Lord is hiring people for work for the growth of His kingdom here in Earth.
However, one note to note also is that it is great to visit again the previous parish and get reconnected with the people whom been a part of your life during the six years assignment period.
