"As Christians, we ought to think of others, to listen to others, and to respond to the needs of others. Let us recognize the work of the Spirit moving us to recognize the face of Christ in every person we meet" (Casal, 2020).

The community spirit is very much alive in the monasteries founded by Saint Benedict who exhorted his monks to respect and love one another and also to welcome guests as if they are receiving Christ himself. Let us join Mr. John Paolo Casal from the Center for Campus Ministry as we reflect on the Benedictine Hallmarks of Community and Hospitality on the Ninth Day of our Novena to Saint Benedict.

“The wealth of this world is uncertain. Today’s gains are tomorrow’s losses” (Ogao, 2020).

There are countless blessings that we have received from God. But how do we use them? Do we use them only to benefit ourselves, or do we share them to enrich other people’s lives?

Today’s point of reflection is focused on Stewardship. Let us join Ms. Aileen Ogao, Campus Minister-Bedan Identity Mission Office, as she gives her reflection about the Benedictine Hallmark of Stewardship on the eighth day of our novena in honor of St. Benedict.

"Humility is accepting the truth—the truth that each individual is a valuable member of the community. Everyone is a gift; each is Christ" (San Mateo, 2020).

As created by our loving God in his own image and likeness, we possess in our being that sense of uniqueness. All of us are special. God bestowed on each person different gifts and talents to enhance his/her very being, to reach the purpose of his/her life. Yet sometimes, that sense of uniqueness is lost when we become selfish and think only about ourselves. We forget the importance and value of other people around us. How are we going to find our way back to our uniqueness? We will only find our authenticity as a human being when we are humble. But what does "humility" really means?

Let us join Dr. Andres Ignacio C. San Mateo Jr., Vice President for Academic Affairs, as he reflects on the meaning and value of the Benedictine Hallmark of Humility on the seventh day of novena in honor of St. Benedict.

"The pandemic has shown us that despite all the advances we have made, we are not in control" (Gatmaitan, 2020).

Our experience of the quarantine awakens in us the need to reorder, refocus, and reawaken our faith in God.
 
In the midst of the seeming hopelessness and helplessness we experience because of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Lord invites us to reorder, refocus, and reawaken ourselves. Let us reflect on the Benedictine Hallmark of Discipline and pray together with Ms. Arlyn Gatmaitan, Head of the Bedan Identity and Mission Office, on the sixth day of our novena to Saint Benedict.

"The first step of humility is unhesitating obedience, which comes naturally to those who cherish Christ above all" (Rule of Saint Benedict 5:1-2).
What does obedience mean? Why do I need to obey? Whom should I obey? Let us join Dom Clement Ma. Roque, OSB, Vice President for Finance, as he reflects on the Benedictine Hallmark of Obedience on the fifth day of our novena to Saint Benedict.
