by Fr. Roy Cimagala - April 25, 2019 - 12:00am

by Fr. Roy Cimagala - April 21, 2019 - 12:00am

Knowing and loving God
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - April 15, 2019 - 12:00am

At home with the ‘last things’
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - April 14, 2019 - 12:00am
We need to be familiar with the doctrine of the ‘last things.’ In fact, we need to feel at home with it, since it would certainly play an important role on how to arrange and direct our life.
Our need for silence
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - April 13, 2019 - 12:00am
We have to realize this more deeply. With all the hustle and bustles of our world today, with all the noise and distractions that we have, we have to exert tremendous effort to maintain silence, both inside and outside...

Moral and technological progress
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - April 6, 2019 - 12:00am
These should go together. The tragedy of our times is precisely because our technological progress is not matched by progress in the spiritual and moral life. We need to do everything to put the two together.
The big problem of the rich
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - April 4, 2019 - 12:00am
WHAT is the big problem of the rich? Christ spelled it out when he said, “It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” (Mt 19,24)
When losing is winning
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - April 3, 2019 - 12:00am

Ending the day well
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - March 31, 2019 - 12:00am

Prepare for the worst scenario
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - March 30, 2019 - 12:00am
