                    [Summary] => That’s what Christ told his disciples. (cfr. Lk 6,36-38) “Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.

                    [Summary] => The Lenten Season being a time for intense spirit of penance and mortification in preparation for the ultimate act of love by Christ as he offered his life on the cross and finally conquered our sin and death through his resurrection, we should try to understand appreciate the necessity for such penitential acts like fasting and abstinence.

                    [Summary] => That’s what the readings of the fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B, reminds us of. From the Book of Job, we are already warned that our life here on earth is some kind of warfare. (cfr. 7,1) And St. Paul in the Second Reading also tells us that we have to learn to be “all things to all men to save all.” (1 Cor 9,22) That’s definitely a tall order, given the way we are.

                    [Summary] => The Feast of the Presentation of the Lord, celebrated on February 2, offers that precious lesson about humility, a fundamental virtue that engenders and enables us to do a lot of good things, like being compassionate all the way to offering even one’s life for others.

                    [Title] => Drown evil with an abundance of good
                    [Summary] => We are reminded of this beautiful Christian message in that story of King Saul and David. (cfr. 1 Samuel 24,3-21) The king, out of envy, planned to eliminate David. But David, who had the chance to eliminate the king, changed his mind. And when the king knew about this, he was so moved as to allow David to be his successor as king.

                    [Summary] => Christmas being the birth of Christ our Redeemer, we should be properly prepared for it in both body and soul. The spiritual preparation, of course, takes precedence over the bodily preparation, but the latter also needs to be given due attention, otherwise our spiritual readiness to receive Christ on Christmas Day would be undermined.

                    [Summary] => The Filipinos today should realize that Israel is a special friend of our country, not only because it is the birthplace of our Lord, Jesus Christ, but because history has linked our two peoples into a special bond of friendship and cooperation.
