What should be normal in us?
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - June 13, 2021 - 12:00am

We may be at the moment enjoying life because we are still young, healthy, vibrant and, yes, beautiful and handsome.
Sharpening our sense of communion
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - June 3, 2021 - 12:00am
We need to be more aware of our need and duty to develop and, in fact, sharpen our sense of communion among ourselves.
Philosophy, theology and prayer

That our joy may be complete
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - June 1, 2021 - 12:00am

Charity amid evil
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - May 31, 2021 - 12:00am
Make no mistake about it. If we are truly Christian, if we want to be like Christ as we should, then we should continue to live charity even when confronted by evil or, worse, even when we suffer at the hands of...
Assuming the identity of Christ
by Fr. Roy Cimagala - May 30, 2021 - 12:00am

Meant to go beyond ourselves
