Peter and John
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - January 14, 2019 - 12:00am
I am referring to the two apostles, St. Peter and St. John.
Our attitude towards life’s struggles
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - January 13, 2019 - 12:00am
We need to examine our attitude towards the unavoidable struggles we have in life.
Users and lovers
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - January 12, 2019 - 12:00am
It’s often said that we should never be users of people, but lovers only. We should avoid using people as objects, tools and instruments.
Explore, adapt, innovate
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - January 10, 2019 - 12:00am
While we may have our own particular niche in life that is fit to our personal condition and circumstances, we have to realize that we are not meant to be imprisoned there, but should rather have an attitude of openness...
Loyalty, yes; but tribalism, no
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - January 9, 2019 - 12:00am
We have to learn to distinguish between the two.
Charity always involves suffering
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - January 7, 2019 - 12:00am
We should not be surprised anymore by this fact of life and truth of our faith. If we truly are in love with the love of God, the love of Christ who gave us the new commandment to love our neighbor as he himself...
Every moment an encounter with God
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - January 6, 2019 - 12:00am
We need to be most aware that every moment and situation can and should be an encounter with God.
Let’s beam with hope
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - January 5, 2019 - 12:00am
Let’s try our best to be men and women of real, great and abiding hope, which means we have a clear vision of our ultimate goal in life and confidence that with God’s grace and our effort we can reach...
Hey! Sex is sacred
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - January 3, 2019 - 12:00am
That’s right. Sex is sacred. We should not play around with it. It is serious business, infused with a very serious mission. We should not trivialize it.
Let’s go to Mary on New Year’s Day
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - December 31, 2018 - 12:00am
January 1 is, of course, New Year’s Day. We will be noisy on that day, heartily welcoming 2019, a new page in our book of life.
Both active and contemplative
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - December 30, 2018 - 12:00am
We have to learn to be both active and contemplative in our life.
On gift-giving and receiving
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - December 29, 2018 - 12:00am
Christmas being a season of gift-giving and receiving, I believe it is good to be reminded of its deeply theological basis.
Flowing with the times
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - December 27, 2018 - 12:00am
How should we flow with the times without getting lost along the way?
The joy of Christmas
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - December 24, 2018 - 12:00am
The joy of Christmas springs from the fact that Jesus Christ, our savior, is born. “Puer natus est nobis,” says the entrance prayer in the Christmas Mass. A child is born for us, he is Christ the Lord,...
Don’t be afraid to complicate your life
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - December 23, 2018 - 12:00am
If it is for a good cause, we should not be afraid to complicate our life. This is what Christ in effect told us when he talked about that shepherd who left behind the 99 sheep of his flock to look for the one that...
Breaking the “as-usual” mold
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - December 22, 2018 - 12:00am
We have to be wary of our strong tendency to fall into routine that can spawn many other anomalies such as complacency, spiritual lukewarmness, mediocrity, a self-satisfaction that seeks no further improvement in...
Altruism vs Narcissism
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - December 20, 2018 - 12:00am
We have to be aware of this danger. With how things are now, it is quite easy and tempting for something that is good to be spoiled because of a rotten intention one has in carrying it out. Yes, one can give alms,...
Generosity and total detachment
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - December 19, 2018 - 12:00am
We have to learn the precious lesson Christ wants to impart to us in that episode where he praised the poor widow who gave two small coins to the temple treasury more than the rich ones who put a lot of money.
Avoid tempting God
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - December 17, 2018 - 12:00am
It was nice to learn about Blessed Bartolo Longo (1841-1926) who, as the Wikepedia puts it, “was an Italian lawyer who has been beatified by the Roman Catholic Church.
Suffer the little children
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - December 16, 2018 - 12:00am
To be more precise, suffer especially the babies. The other day, I had the misfortune—that in the end turned out actually as a great fortune—of being with two screaming babies on a one-hour plane ride....
