Last Saturday I ran 3K for a cause. We joined the K for K (Kilometer for Kerygma) headed by Bro. Bo Sanchez. The proceeds will be given to the foundations he built for our less fortunate brothers and sisters.
As early as 5:15am, me and Andrew arrived in SM Mall of Asia grounds and waited for Zeny and Pache to arrive. At around 5.30am, we are all set to warm up and run for the first time.
To start the event, Bro. Michael Angelo Lobrin welcomed all the participants with his ever … [ Continue reading Run the Race: 3K for Kerygma ]

“Calling all running enthusiasts, compassionate givers or just anybody who wants to have fun and enjoys fellowship!” – this was my friend Ate Pache‘s invitation to me in facebook. I told her I like to join the “runs” for a cause so she sent me this invitation.
So I also invite everyone to do something extra ordinary for those who haven’t tried this before. I’m sure this will be fun especially if you know that you’re helping build a good future for someone while running. At the same time, you’ll help yourself to be healthy too! It’s a … [ Continue reading K for K – Run a Kilometer for Kerygma ]

Around 1.30pm today, I received an SMS from my favorite priest Fr. Filemon Dela Cruz, O.P. and inviting me to watch the Manaoag Special in GMA 7.
Without any hesitations, I replied “Oks. Will watch!:)”.
True enough at exactly 2pm, the Manaoag Special was aired in GMA 7.
The photo below was taken in the year 2006 when we went to Treasure of Bolinao.
It was the history of the Our Lady of the Rosary, Manaoag Church in Pangasinan. I’ve been there several times especially when I go visit my “sister” Zeny Gomez and whenever … [ Continue reading Black Saturday – Manaoag Special ]

Every Holy Week, we join the procession since our extended family owns the Mary Magdalene statue. For this year, I only attended the Friday procession. This is shorter compared to Holy Wednesday’s procession. We are the 6th statue.
This year, Andrew joined our yearly procession.
After the procession, we let them had snacks in the garage.

Yesterday, I attended a Deaconal Ordination of Sem. Carlo del Rosario in UST Chapel. It was my first time to attend such occasion and maybe some of you might be feeling the same way we did. Since it’s a deaconal ordination, it’s one step closer to Priesthood. Let me tell you my experience.

I arrived 5 mins before the celebration starts. I looked for Aisce and Ted since they were the ones I know who will come that day. It was like a semi-reunion with my fellow World Youth Day delegates. The … [ Continue reading Deaconal Ordination ]

I was googling for a Lenten Retreat schedules and then I saw this interesting article. It was the message of the Pope at the End of their Lenten Retreat. He was thankful for Fr. Enrico Dal Covolo who is a Salesian priest.
It always makes me smile when I’m reading something about Salesians as well as Thomasians. It felt like family.
Anyway, here’s the Pope’s message. It was inspiring!

“Only in the ‘We’ of the Church Can We Truly Hear the Word”
VATICAN CITY, FEB. 28, 2010 (Zenit.org).- Here is … [ Continue reading Pope’s Lenten Retreat Message ]

Last Sunday’s Prosper Series lesson was to Grow. To be able to be rich and wealthy, you should grow your inner wealth before you can grow your outer wealth. It is like a tree, if you see a strong sturdy tree you know definitely that the roots of it are stable and continuously growing making it firm.
He also said that we should focus on our Anointing, meaning our core gift. We can’t do something out of our circle of anointing. However, we can do something only if we plant a seed on it. For example, if … [ Continue reading Prosper Series Lesson 3: Grow ]

At present, the Philippines is suffering from drought conditions. I think some of the towns are already in the state of calamity because of this. That’s why we should all be praying for rain to come. Here are prayers that was forwarded to me by email.
1. Prayer for Rain
O God of all goodness and provident care, we call upon your compassion. We are so very dependent on you, O God, for all that we need. See our parched earth, so desperately in need of rain. See our parched and empty hearts, also in need of spiritual refreshment. Forgive … [ Continue reading Prayers for Rain ]

Last Sunday, together with the 2nd lesson on Prosper Series we were given a booklet 7 Days of Prayer and Fasting. Bo invited everyone to fast even for 7 days. This first week of March, hundreds of people who attended the Feast fasted and prayed together.
As for me, my fasting is only to eat ONE MEAL a day. No snacks or candies. Just one meal. At first it’s hard since I always eat snacks and candies from time to time. Eating one meal makes you dizzy at first but eventually your stomach … [ Continue reading 7 Days of Prayer and Fasting ]
