First Reading                                          Wis 1:13-15; 2:23-24
God did not make death,
nor does he rejoice in the destruction of the living.
For he fashioned all things that they might have being;
and the creatures of the world are wholesome,
and there is not a destructive drug among them
nor any domain of the netherworld on earth,
for justice is undying.
For God formed man to be imperishable;
the image of his own nature he made him.
But by the envy of the devil, death entered the world,
and they who belong to his company experience it.
Responsorial Psalm                                     Ps 30:2, 4, 5-6, 11, 12, 13
R. (2a) I will praise you, Lord, for you have rescued me.
I will extol you, O LORD, for you drew me clear
and did not let my enemies rejoice over me.
O LORD, you brought me up from the netherworld;
you preserved me from among those going down into the pit.
R. 
I will praise you, Lord, for you have rescued me.
Sing praise to the LORD, you his faithful ones,
and give thanks to his holy name.
For his anger lasts but a moment;
a lifetime, his good will.
At nightfall, weeping enters in,
but with the dawn, rejoicing.
R. 
I will praise you, Lord, for you have rescued me.
Hear, O LORD, and have pity on me;
O LORD, be my helper.
You changed my mourning into dancing;
O LORD, my God, forever will I give you thanks.
R. 
I will praise you, Lord, for you have rescued me.
Second Reading                                        2 Cor 8:7, 9, 13-15
Brothers and sisters:
As you excel in every respect, in faith, discourse,
knowledge, all earnestness, and in the love we have for you,
may you excel in this gracious act also.

For you know the gracious act of our Lord Jesus Christ,
that though he was rich, for your sake he became poor,
so that by his poverty you might become rich.
Not that others should have relief while you are burdened,
but that as a matter of equality
your abundance at the present time should supply their needs,
so that their abundance may also supply your needs,
that there may be equality.
As it is written:
Whoever had much did not have more,
and whoever had little did not have less.

Gospel                                         Mk 5:21-43
When Jesus had crossed again in the boat
to the other side,
a large crowd gathered around him, and he stayed close to the sea.
One of the synagogue officials, named Jairus, came forward.
Seeing him he fell at his feet and pleaded earnestly with him, saying,
"My daughter is at the point of death.
Please, come lay your hands on her
that she may get well and live."
He went off with him,
and a large crowd followed him and pressed upon him.

There was a woman afflicted with hemorrhages for twelve years.
She had suffered greatly at the hands of many doctors
and had spent all that she had.
Yet she was not helped but only grew worse.
She had heard about Jesus and came up behind him in the crowd
and touched his cloak.
She said, "If I but touch his clothes, I shall be cured."
Immediately her flow of blood dried up.
She felt in her body that she was healed of her affliction.
Jesus, aware at once that power had gone out from him,
turned around in the crowd and asked, "Who has touched my clothes?"
But his disciples said to Jesus,
"You see how the crowd is pressing upon you,
and yet you ask, 'Who touched me?'"
And he looked around to see who had done it.
The woman, realizing what had happened to her,
approached in fear and trembling.
She fell down before Jesus and told him the whole truth.
He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has saved you.
Go in peace and be cured of your affliction."

While he was still speaking,
people from the synagogue official's house arrived and said,
"Your daughter has died; why trouble the teacher any longer?"
Disregarding the message that was reported,
Jesus said to the synagogue official,
"Do not be afraid; just have faith."
He did not allow anyone to accompany him inside
except Peter, James, and John, the brother of James.
When they arrived at the house of the synagogue official,
he caught sight of a commotion,
people weeping and wailing loudly.
So he went in and said to them,
"Why this commotion and weeping?
The child is not dead but asleep."
And they ridiculed him.
Then he put them all out.
He took along the child's father and mother
and those who were with him
and entered the room where the child was.
He took the child by the hand and said to her, "Talitha koum,"
which means, "Little girl, I say to you, arise!"
The girl, a child of twelve, arose immediately and walked around.
At that they were utterly astounded.
He gave strict orders that no one should know this
and said that she should be given something to eat.

Personal Interpretation/Reflections of the Readings: (Sariling pag-unawa ko lang po ito. Minsan may mga kaibigan akong Pari na nagbibigay ng Homily nila at nilalagay ko iyon dito.)

Good morning my brothers and sisters in Christ. I have a question for you today. How many of you have eternal life? Raise your hand those of you who believe or know that you have eternal life.

(You may wish to add your personal comment at the comment box below…)

Eternal life, what is it? Some have it and do not know that they have it. Some do not have it, are searching for it, but they are rejecting the means of getting it. Blessed are those who have it and who know that they have it!

Regarding eternal life, the Holy Bible states,
"And this is eternal life, that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent." [Jn.17:3]
To know God is to have a daily personal relationship with Him. Therefore, to have eternal life means to know God as He know Himself in order to be able to eternally enjoy a personal relationship with Him in His heavenly Kingdom.

Today's readings from the Holy Scriptures speak of the gift of eternal life. The First Reading from the Book of Wisdom tells us, "God did not make death, and he does not delight in the death of the living. For he created all things so that they might exist; the generative forces of the world are wholesome, and there is no destructive poison in them, and the dominion of Hades is not on earth. For righteousness is immortal." [Wis. 1:13-5]

When the Lord God created the light, the dry land, the herbs and trees, the sun and the moon, the water creatures, the winged fowl, the beasts, all what creeps on the earth and man, 'it was good.' [Gen. 1:4, 10, 12, 18, 21, 25, 31] Seven times, the words "It was good" are repeated in the First Chapter of the Book of Genesis.

Contrary to what some say, that hell is here on earth, the Holy Bible teaches us that hell is not here on earth. [Wis. 1:14] If some think that hell is here, it is because they are creating their own hell.

For those of us who live a righteous life, we have a different perception of the world. We live for the blessed hope of the life to come, the eternal life in the Kingdom of God. While we are physically present on earth, we are not of this world. Our hearts are set on Jesus, our living hope of the salvation that has been promised to those who live a life of righteousness through their living faith in Christ.

Thanks to the living sacrifice of Jesus, we have the assurance of eternal life in the Kingdom of God. The accuser of our brothers and sisters in Christ has been thrown down from Heaven, he who accuses them day and night before our God. [Rev. 12:9] "For to know (Jesus) is complete righteousness, and to know (His) power is the root of immortality." [Wis. 15:3]

God created us for incorruption and made us in His own image [Gen. 1:27; Wis. 2:23] so we may inherit His Kingdom. If the wicked inherit spiritual death, it is because they invite it upon themselves.

But man can avoid spiritual death, he being called to inherit the Kingdom of God. To do so, he has to acquire life in Christ or risk losing it for failing to reach out for God's grace. Acquiring life in Christ by the grace of God is achieved through faith in Christ and the Sacrament of Baptism when the new convert receives the promised gifts of God, the indwelling Holy Spirit, a new heart and spirit of the godly seed. [1 Jn. 3:9]

"Through the devil's envy death entered the world, and those who belong to his company experience it." [Wis. 2:24] As Jesus said to those who had an evil heart, "You are from your father the devil, and you choose to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies." [Jn. 8:44]

"No one can serve two masters; for a slave will either hate the one and love the other..." [Mt. 6:24] To have life, one must be a slave of the Lord Jesus, the eternal King of kings. To have death, one must be a slave of the prince of this world, the prince of darkness and deception.

To have eternal life in the Kingdom of God and serve the Lord Jesus, we must excel in everything, in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in utmost eagerness and in our love towards one another. We know the generous act of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for our sakes He became poor, so that by His poverty we might become rich. [2 Cor. 8:7, 9]

"Though (Jesus) was in the form of God, He did not regard equality with God as something to be exploited, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a slave, being born in human likeness. And being found in human form, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death - even death on a cross." [Phil. 2:6-8]

For our salvation, Jesus set aside His power so He could relate to mankind at the level of man. He did not come into this world as a glorious King surrounded by a myriad of angels. He came as a helpless infant, trusted in the care of the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Joseph, in poverty, homeless, in need of tender loving care as every child that is born of the human nature. Nor did He leave this world in the full glory that He truly deserved. Instead, He was treated as a common criminal, condemned to death and crucified for having revealed the truth, that He was the Son of God. Through His death as the sacrificial Lamb of God, Jesus having taken the sins of the world upon His shoulders, we found life.

Jesus died for us so that we may share our Christian love with one another. As He gave of Himself, He asked us to give of ourselves. He asked those who have an abundance to share their wealth with those in need so that those who have little, do not have too little. With that little extra that they receive through the love of their Christian brothers and sisters, they too can live a decent life above the poverty level.

As today's Gospel Reading tells us, Jesus shared generously. Reaching out to the synagogue leader who had faith in Him, Jesus raised his twelve year old daughter. As He had done with Lazarus, Jesus gave life to the little girl that had crossed over to death. Surely, if Jesus can raise the dead from the point of no return, the power is His to raise all the living dead and to grant eternal life in the Kingdom of God to those to who He chooses to do so.

In today's Gospel Reading, we also heard how a woman was healed of twelve years of hemorrhages, simply by touching the clothes of the Lord Jesus. What faith she must have had! And her faith made her well, she being healed of her disease. The Gospel of Mark tells us that she suffered for twelve years before turning to Jesus. She had endured much under many physicians and obviously drained her of all her financial resources. Jesus was her last hope... her only hope. Nothing in the physical world could heal her... it took a miracle... a miracle of God. And the Son of God was there for her when she needed Him the most, after much suffering.

How much more are we willing to suffer before we turn to God? How much are we willing to suffer before we place our complete faith in Jesus? Having received the promise of eternal life in the Kingdom of God through the Sacrament of Baptism, are we now walking our living faith in Christ so we may qualify to inherit our salvation? Are we receiving the Sacrament of Confession on a regular basis so we may maintain our righteousness in the eyes of God? Are we receiving the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist, the Living Bread, so we may have the life of Christ in us?

Eternal life in the Kingdom of God is to be acquired by the grace of God through our good works by the power of the Holy Spirit in the Most Holy Name of Jesus. If we say that we have faith in Christ and we do not shine in good works, we are dead. [Jas. 2:26] Our gift of eternal life in the Kingdom of God is rooted in Jesus Christ. Through Christ, we shall inherit the Kingdom of God as worthy children of the Lord Almighty.

If in your parish you sing during second collections, prepare a song because we have Opus Sancti Petri. This is observed on the Sunday nearest the Solemnity of Saint Peter and Paul (June 29). Collections should be remitted in support of the Pointifical Society of Saint Peter the Apostle (Formation of seminarians, novices, clergy and Religious all over the world.) Songs like Patnubay, Sa 'Yo Lamang, Tungo Sa’Yo (Hangad) or any songs about priesthood, offertory songs involve offering one's self rather than bread and wine, etc. would be good.
