Charity perfects our human laws
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - January 20, 2019 - 12:00am

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.

We have to learn to distinguish between the two.
Charity always involves suffering
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - January 7, 2019 - 12:00am
