I don’t mind saying the same salient features about my mother over and over again. I thank God for making mothers like mine! For me, she was the greatest!

There were times that she appeared to me in my dreams together with my Dad, who left years ahead of her, making me feel that they are still looking after their children, appreciating of our accomplishments and comforting us in our trials and tribulations. When it comes to my parents, I tend to be emotionally fragile, … Continue reading The Mother Who Rocked The Cradle!

The installation of SLR’s 4-ft. image at HCJ may … Continue reading San Lorenzo Ruiz Enthronement – A Significant Event

But little did I know that it was a form of spiritual leadership accompanied by a critical responsibility brought upon on my shoulder. What could I say? How could I say no to the call for help for God’s glory? I simply responded in affirmative, and everything started there!

In non-tropical countries, Easter season occurs during springtime and springtime comes immediately after winter. It is during this season of the year, when cold days are fading and sun starts shining brightly, rivers coming back to life, animals are roaming again freely from hibernation, lifeless brown trunks starting to put on leaves and flowers blooming once again.
