Generosity and prodigality
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - May 16, 2019 - 12:00am
We have to learn to distinguish between the two since both can look the same and can involve more or less the same amount of money, time, effort, etc. Generosity is, of course, not prodigality, though it is never...
Hunger and thirst for God
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - May 15, 2019 - 12:00am

by Fr. Roy Cimagala - May 8, 2019 - 12:00am

If only we knew...
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - May 6, 2019 - 12:00am
That is, if we only knew what God has given us, for sure we would freeze in astonishment, and once recovered, would spring to action to correspond generously to his great tremendous gift to us!

Even Christ “failed”…
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - May 1, 2019 - 12:00am
