Fear the cross no more
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - October 19, 2019 - 12:00am

Life’s unavoidable dirt
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - October 16, 2019 - 12:00am

Who defines orthodoxy?
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - October 12, 2019 - 12:00am
The quick answer is the Holy Spirit. It is God, of course, who is the source and end of everything.
Daily nurturing our love
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - October 10, 2019 - 12:00am
Given our human condition, marked as it is with many ups and downs, we need to see to it that our love continues to burn regardless of the changing circumstances.
The fullness of our humanity
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - October 9, 2019 - 12:00am
We need to understand this point very well. Our humanity is not just a matter of biology, the blend of genes that gives us our unique identity.
New wine on new wineskins
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - October 7, 2019 - 12:00am
Yes, we need to know how to flow with the times, adapting ourselves with the new developments and circumstances without losing sight of what is truly essential in our life.
Enterprising but not opportunistic
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - October 6, 2019 - 12:00am
We are, of course, encouraged to be very fruitful and productive in our life. There should be no time for laziness.
Up close and personal

Practical training in chastity
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - October 2, 2019 - 12:00am

by Fr. Roy Cimagala - September 30, 2019 - 12:00am
Given the increasingly pressing conditions of the world today and the permanent, ultimate and most precious goal of ours, we really need to be more serious and more skillful in synergizing both the active and contemplative...
Forceful yet gentle
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - September 29, 2019 - 12:00am
In our discussions and exchanges, especially when we have to sort out differences and settle conflicts, it always pays to be gentle in our ways even as we like to be forceful in advancing our views. Good manners...
Charity is madness
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - September 28, 2019 - 12:00am
There is no doubt about it. If we truly live the virtue of charity that reflects, echoes and replicates the love of God for us, we should be ready to fall into some madness. We have to be ready to be some kind of...
A really good rest
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - September 26, 2019 - 12:00am
