by Fr. Roy Cimagala - December 16, 2018 - 12:00am

‘Make friends with dishonest wealth’
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - December 3, 2018 - 12:00am
Very intriguing words of Christ, indeed! (cfr Lk 16,9) We need to go slow, keeping a good grip on our reflex reaction, to know what Christ really meant by them.
Upgrading our vigilance skills
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - December 2, 2018 - 12:00am
