Imitation, Conversion, Listening

During the Solemn Eucharistic Celebration, Archbishop Villegas reminded the faithful of the true meaning of celebrating Christ the King. He did this by making three important points:
First, he emphasized that imitation is more important than worship. He said that the true goal of the gathering which gives praise and worship to Christ is that it will lead us to be like Him.
Second, he pointed out that there will be no true celebration without conversion first. “Before we sing Alleluia, we must say I confess first,” he said.
Lastly, listening comes before proclaiming. At this point, he urged everyone to appreciate silence and to give more time to listen to the voice of God amidst the varied forms of noise that we have in the world today. “The language of God is silence,” he said.
