Our Lives Are About Relationships

"Faith is being sure of what we hope for. But do not use faith to live a life of complacency. Your regrets are not what you did, but what you did not do. Whenever you do something, treat it as if "it could be the last". You only get to that age once and  time once spent, cannot be regained. Life is all about relationships. If a person is important to you, you don't look for time, but instead, you make time for them."
 I missed two Sunday masses and just this weekend, I thought of attending the mid-morning Eucharistic celebration in our parish. But I ended up going to Megamall and hearing the 12:30 pm English mass at the mall chapel. As luck or should I properly say, Divine Intervention would have it, it was Fr. Dave Concepcion, one of my "favorite priests" who celebrated the mass.

Those written on top of this entry was an excerpt of his lengthy but meaningful Homily. Father Dave's Homily in each mass he consecrates always sends everyone laughing (which is good because it means no one is bored) but on the other hand they too leave the chapel enlightened. I'm thankful to have attended the said mass once more. For if I didn't I just knew I missed a lot especially these words:

"Life is all about relationships. If a person is important to you, you don't look for time, but instead, you make time for them."

And during the end of his Homily, he asked us, "what is it that you are hoping for? Raise them to God in prayer". I just knew what to tell Him and it's good (and even surprising) to realize that people around me were asking Him of that too on my behalf.
