With the Solemnity of Pentecost, the Easter season ends. Immediately following this are three solemnities in Ordinary Time: the solemnities of the Holy Trinity, the Body and Blood of Christ, and the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. I have already posted the Workshop articles for the readings of those feasts with their corresponding “Mag-aral Tayo” equivalents.
Below are the links to these articles:
- Feast of the Holy Trinity 2010 (C)
- Trinity Sunday is the first of the post-Easter solemnities that highlight particular aspects of salvation history. The word “Trinity” was coined by Tertullian to designate the God who makes Himself known as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. It is a word that conveniently puts into just three syllables the Christian conviction about the nature of God as revealed by Jesus Christ. Through the Solemnity of the Holy Trinity, we give thanks to Father who has created us, the Son who has redeemed us, and the Holy Spirit who continues to sanctify us and transform us into the Body of Christ.
- (Corpus Christi — C)All Ate and were Satisfied (Luke 9:12-17)
- The Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ is the second of the three feasts that are celebrated immediately after the end of the Easter season. During Holy Thursday, we celebrated the institution of the Eucharist. In this Solemnity, we focus on the new life that Christ communicates to us through His Flesh and Blood that are given to us in the bread and wine of the Mass.
- (Sacred Heart — C) A Love Without Measure
- The third feast immediately following the Easter season is that of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The title of the feast derives from the vision granted to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque of the Lord’s heart, broken and wounded during His Passion, burning for love and bearing upon it the sign of the Cross. The visions came at a time when the Jansenist heresy was teaching that God should not be loved but feared as a judge. In the visions, the Lord reminds us through St. Margaret that His love for us has been made manifest on the Cross where he shed His blood for us.
For Mag-aral Tayo I am trying out something new. Instead of the Gospel readings, I am presenting materials based on the first or second readings. I do this on those Sundays where the Gospel reading was already presented on another Sunday. Such was the case for Pentecost where the Gospel is from John 20:19-23 (reading from Easter Sunday), so I presented the first reading from Acts 2:1-13. Besides, in our actual Bible Workshop at the parish (BEC Advanced Training), we are studying the Letters of Paul, so I thought it would be a good idea to prioritize the letters of Paul whenever these are presented in the liturgy.
