Pagbabago sa Buhay-Pananampalataya sa ECQ

Nagbago ba ang inyong buhay-pananampalataya sa panahon ng quarantine? Kung kailan nagkaroon ng Enhanced Community Quarantine dahil sa Covid19 virus, maraming mga kuwentong-pananampalataya ang lumalaganap sa Facebook, Twitter at Instagram. Meron nagsabi sa akin na araw-araw na siyang nagsisimba online. Meron ding nagbahagi na ang kanilang pagdarasal ay naging pampamilya, samantala noong wala pa angContinue reading “Pagbabago sa Buhay-Pananampalataya sa ECQ”

Matuto Sa Bawat Pamamasyal

Kayo po ba ay nakapagbakasyon na? Marahil marami na sa atin ang nakapaggala na. Sinasamantala kasi natin magandang panahon para mamasyal. Nanginginayang lang po ako na hindi natin nasusulit ang ating pag-iikot. Nahuhuli ko rin po ang aking sarili na mas binibigyan ko ng oras ang mga photoshoots para may supply akong pang post saContinue reading “Matuto Sa Bawat Pamamasyal”

Campus Ministry

We define Campus Ministry as the presence of the Catholic Church on campus. This presence needs to be palpable, visible, and active so that faith-life acquires a witnessing role in the Senior High School campus. It is the heart of formation where all other formation offices of the Senior HS are attached. As a Jesuit,Continue reading “Campus Ministry”

Makinig Upang Makaunawa

Pinasasalamatan natin sa Panginoon ang mga ugnayang labis na nagbibigay inspirasyon sa ating buhay. Sobrang masaya ka sa iyong pamilya dahil magkakasama kayo sa kainan at pamamasyal. At pinopost mo sila sa Facebook. May boyfriend or girlfriend ka at fine-flex mo sila sa Twitter at Instagram. May hashtag ka pang #blessed at inaabangan mo angContinue reading “Makinig Upang Makaunawa”

Tindihan ang Paniniwalang Makakamtan Ang Pangarap

Sa aking palagay, may pangarap tayong lahat. May mga pangarap na para sa ating sarili, tulad ng makatapos sa pag-aaral, magkaroon ng trabaho, at mabuhay nang komportable. May mga pangarap na may kinalaman sa iba: ang mai-ahon ang pamilya sa kahirapan, ang paglago ng kabuhayan ng mamamayang Pilipino at ang kapayapaan sa sanlibutan.  Subalit, mayContinue reading “Tindihan ang Paniniwalang Makakamtan Ang Pangarap”

A Crack at Vlogging

How should a priest vlog? Definitely I do not want a vlog without substance. Or, a vlog that is about life and leisure. What should my vlog look like, without plunging into the borderline scandalous or the realm of the super conservative traditionalist? I’d like to vlog about what I do in forming young people,Continue reading “A Crack at Vlogging”

Easter in the Eyes of Two Marys

There are two Marys who are highlighted in the celebration of Easter: Mary, the Mother of Jesus and Mary Magdalene to whom Jesus appeared at the tomb. The former is based on tradition; the latter, is based on Scripture.  The First Appearance of the Resurrection based on Tradition. St. Ignatius of Loyola writes in theContinue reading “Easter in the Eyes of Two Marys”

I Kissed My Holding Cross Instead

We cling to someone when afraid. In my younger days, I would cling to the arms of my parents when threatened. Or, I would ask permission to sleep with them when I had a bad dream. Somehow, having someone to hold allays my fears.  I began to hold on to anything sacred when I startedContinue reading “I Kissed My Holding Cross Instead”

Lent: Pray, Fast, Give

Pray. Ginugugol natin sa pagdadasal ang buong linggong ito, bilang pagbibigay-pugay sa pagpapakasakit sa krus ni Hesus para sa ating kaligtasan. Ito ang linggo ng maraming Stations of the Cross, bisita Iglesia, prusisyon, sunod-sunod na pagsamba, at ang iba naman ang pagsasagawa sa kanilang mga panata. Ang anumang uri ng pag-aayuno, kasama ang abstinence, ayContinue reading “Lent: Pray, Fast, Give”

How to Celebrate the Holy Week Triduum When Quarantined

There are many restrictions when we have to be quarantined during the Holy Week. We won’t be at the mass with the washing of the feet, or the Visita Iglesia when parishes decorate their altar of repose lavishly (which they shouldn’t liturgically, but they do anyway).  We will not be able to participate in GoodContinue reading “How to Celebrate the Holy Week Triduum When Quarantined”

19 Years Today

“This morning, about 1 hour and ½ before sunrise, offered to the eye the grandest exhibition of divine power blazing forth from the E. by N. in the inexpressible golden tinge on the sky from N.E. to S.E. The nearer the vast Luminary approached, the more the eastern horizon seemed to dart, or pour forwardContinue reading “19 Years Today”

Way of the Cross when in Quarantine

We are in an unusual time. With the implementation of the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ), we cannot trek mountains with trails marked by the Stations of the Cross, like that in Kawa-Kawa in Ligao, Albay, Mt. Hibok-Hibok in Camiguin Island, or Mt. Bandilaan in Siquijor which culminates in a 360-degree view of the island; orContinue reading “Way of the Cross when in Quarantine”

Natutuklasan Natin ang Ating Kakaibang Galing sa Bawat Pagsubok.

Ang salitang “Lent” ay hango sa Anglo-Saxon na salitang, “lencten” o spring kung saan umuusbong ulit ang kapaligiran pagkatapos ng winter o tag-lamig. Dahil dito, ang panahon ng Kuwaresma ay ukol sa paglago at pagbabagong-buhay.  May kasabihan na hindi na bumabalik sa dati ang mundo sa bawat pag-ikot ng panahon. Ang paglaki ng isang kahoyContinue reading “Natutuklasan Natin ang Ating Kakaibang Galing sa Bawat Pagsubok.”

Rethinking, again.

4 April 2020. 8:30 PM. So I began vlogging a few days ago on IGTV and got good comments, feedback, and suggestions. And I thought maybe I should push it a little bit further.  I guess the quarantine period has given me time to rethink my so-called life in cyberspace. I have a Youtube channelContinue reading “Rethinking, again.”

Alisin ang mga Nakakabigat sa Kalooban

Ilang beses na natin pinagdadasalan ang kapayapaan sa ating buhay. At malimit na hindi natin ito nakakamtan. Araw-araw nababagabag ang ating kalooban sa maraming mga hinanaing, hinanakit, at panghihinayang. At parang isang virus, dumadami ito at sinasakop ang ating katawan.  Kung hihimay-himayin natin ang mga dahilan ng ating pagkabagabag, matutukoy natin ang pinanggalingan ng mgaContinue reading “Alisin ang mga Nakakabigat sa Kalooban”
