Filipino Scholastic on Mission to Africa

Despite of the great distance of Uganda from the Philippines and the danger of Ebola Virus that now plagues the Western part of Africa, Br.

I was still a college student then when I started to become fascinated with the Sta. Cruz Church. From my long break in class, I was exploring the nearby places in Far Eastern University (the University where I graduated) when I passed by the busy area of Sta.Cruz. As I look around, my attention was then caught by this old Spanish-built church. I was captivated by its exquisite appeal. At that moment, I felt differently as I headed through the door. Inside, I appreciate the inviting silence and the solemnity of the place, making me want to pray to the Blessed Sacrament, so as everyone else around me who are seated in that church. As I watched from afar, I’ve observed the religious congregation occurring at that time. From the distance, I was so mystified with the way they...

Inner Self: the Sanctuary of Inner Peace

I pray to the Lord to bring His overflowing peace to my troubled inner-self. My inner-self is my spiritual self. It is through my inner-self that I could meet the Lord. It is my spiritual being where the ultimate peace of God could immerse into my praying soul. It is where my prayers were answered by God’s response. It is a place where I could be united with God. It is a place within my heart where I invite Jesus… to embrace me, to stay with me and live in me. It is a sacred place within me. Even the world is too busy and noisy; I could still find serenity and harmony within me. Even the world where I am living is in terrible chaos and despite of the pain and agony that I am suffering… there is...

Bloom where I am Planted

Is this a foretaste of missionary life? Did God answer my prayer before? Actually it is my desire and I prayed for it even. I am now a missionary in a foreign land where I am of service in my own little way. It was over ten months ago when I was seeded on the ground of the Celtics. As I was newly planted, I experienced a lot of challenges. I exerted much effort in adjusting to the new environment because it was totally unusual; it was totally different! This is for real. There were lots of hesitations. I was too young. Questions started to pop out. Will I bear fruit here in Ireland? Will I make it to the end of my pastoral year? Fears and doubts crept in. But holding on to the faith that I am...
