by Fr. Roy Cimagala - August 9, 2022 - 12:00am

by Fr. Roy Cimagala - August 6, 2022 - 12:00am

Suffering as proof of true love
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - August 4, 2022 - 12:00am
WE have to be clear about this truth of our faith. If we truly have love, the love that comes from God and not just our own idea of love, we should be willing to suffer and die for our beloved who in the end is none...
When God seems harsh to us
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - August 3, 2022 - 12:00am
“It is not right to take the food of the children and throw it to the dogs.” (Mt 15,26) These words of Christ certainly must have sounded harsh to the Canaanite woman who begged him to cure her daughter...
Even Christ needed to pray
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - August 2, 2022 - 12:00am

The cost in pursuing heaven
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - July 27, 2022 - 12:00am
Christ said it clearly. To pursue the kingdom of God, we should be willing to rid ourselves of things that can cause us some drag in that effort, or to sell off what we have at the moment to get the real thing.
Privileged but not feeling entitled
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - July 25, 2022 - 12:00am
That’s how we should behave. We may be quite privileged in life because of the many gifts and other endowments God and others may have given us, but we should never feel entitled to anything.
Insistent and persevering in prayer  
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - July 24, 2022 - 12:00am

by Fr. Roy Cimagala - July 20, 2022 - 12:00am
We are reminded of that question in the parable of the sower and the seed. (cfr. Mt 9,1-13) Yes, in that parable we are encouraged also to do a lot of sowing of God’s word, a responsibility that is incumbent...
With repentance, our faith becomes more alive
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - July 18, 2022 - 12:00am
We need to see the close relationship between our repentance and its effect on our faith. This relationship was highlighted in the Gospel of St. Matthew (12,38-42) where some of the leading Jews at that time asked...
Everything should be prayer  
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - July 17, 2022 - 12:00am
We have to realize that prayer is the only thing necessary in our life. (cfr. Lk 10,38-42) We need it more than we need air to breathe, food to eat, water to drink.

by Fr. Roy Cimagala - July 10, 2022 - 12:00am
