Lenten Reflections – Level Up!

Level up! After yesterday’s Sunday mass, these two words from Father Victor’s homily got stucked in my mind. It was the Eucharistic celebration of the 5th Sunday of Lent. So, what do these two words really meant? I wonder why, it lingers? As I was contemplating, my St. Rosita had suddenly flashed this blog to […]

Never break the pot that once gave you water. Never bite the hands that once fed you. Never despise the home that once gave you shelter. Never punch holes in the umbrella that once gave you cover. Never insult the breasts that once gave you pleasure. And never malign the church that once gave you fire. If, for now, you have outgrown their usefulness, leave them intact, and go quietly and honorably. For it may be the time and season of breakthrough for others also. Be careful how you close a door. Never ever bang it, you may need to walk through that same door tomorrow.

Inspiring Reflection on “Looking Back”

  Never break the pot that once gave you water. Never bite the hands that once fed you. Never despise the home that once gave you shelter. Never punch holes in the umbrella that once gave you cover. Never insult the breasts that once gave you pleasure. And never malign the church that once gave […]

Lenten Reflections – Love and Laws

Notice how the world has upheld the notion of love as triumphant defiance. From the classic Romeo and Juliet, to the recent Twilight series, people are enthralled by tales of lovers defying directives, dispositions, decorum, death, and destiny. Today’s First Reading, however, upends that notion of love. The Exodus lists the Decalogue as a code […]

You Are Worth It

Do not undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others. It is because we are different that each of us is special. Do not set your goals by what other people deem important. Only you know what is best for you. Do not take for granted the things closest to your heart; Cling to them […]

How Do You Carry Your Loads

How Do You Carry Your Loads?

I compare the troubles which we have to undergo in the course of the year to a great bundle of sticks, far too large for us to lift. But God does not require us to carry the whole at once. He mercifully unties the bundle, and gives us first one stick, which we are to […]

Which Attitude Do I Have To Wear Today?

The differences in human life depend, for the most part, not on what people do, but upon the meaning and purpose of their acts. All are born, all die, all lose their loved ones, nearly all marry and nearly all work, but the significance of these acts may vary enormously. The same physical act may […]

How Do You Worship?

I worship best when I’m climbing a mountain, or walking along a river, or sitting at the edge of a lake, for then all of God’s glory is before me and about me; it all becomes a part of me as my senses expand to accept it all. There always comes a moment of exultation […]

Youth Reflections

Youth

Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind; it is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees; it is a matter of the will, a quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions; it is the freshness of the deep springs of life. Youth means […]

Points of View

On Respecting Ones Opinion Two flies were strolling along the ceiling of an apartment. “You know”, remarked the first fly, “humans are so silly”. “People are silly?” replied the second fly. “How do you figure that?” The first fly shrugged his wings. “Just take a look,” he said. “They spend good money building a nice […]
