“Remember, Man is dust, and unto dust you shall return.”
The Roman Catholic tradition dictates that Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of this 40-day liturgical period of prayer and fasting. Today, we Catholic Christians celebrate Ash Wednesday where we go to hear mass and let the priest or the lay ministers mark our foreheads with a cross of ashes.
The Ash Wednesday is observed by fasting, abstinence from meat, and repentance. It is a day of contemplating one’s life in a spiritual, meditative way. Nowadays, the abstinence from meat is only observed during Ash Wednesday and Good Friday … [ Continue reading Lenten Season 2013 ]

Late this year, before I commit myself to the Corporate World again, I joined a weekend retreat in Brahma Kumaris. In all honesty, I really don’t know anything about this retreat even though I’ve already checked out their website. It’s a bit scary at first as I don’t know what to expect but I just tried to explore and see what good I can get to it. Besides, it’s still about Spirituality.
The Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University acknowledges the intrinsic goodness of all people. We teach a practical method of meditation that helps individuals understand their inner strengths and … [ Continue reading Brahma Kumaris World of Spirituality: Inner Peace, Inner Power ]

I happened to recover my previous blog. I will repost it with minimal edits so as not to destroy the momentum. I was laughing hard when I read it because of the lack of information compared to Roan’s blog. Anyway, no time for comparison now, here’s my own version of the 20th World Youth Day celebration.
Aug. 14, 2005 Call time in UST at 8am. We have to label all the bags and put numbers to it so that it will not be lost along the trip. We had our Send off Mass at 10am in the Central Seminary … [ Continue reading Reminiscing the 20th World Youth Day celebration 2005 ]

I stumbled upon my friend’s blog and saw her latest post. I was curious not only she featured it but the video thumbnail is similar to Thai’s movie “A little thing called Love“. The moment I saw that film, I admired Thai writers as well as the actors. And now, here’s another Thai commercial similar to the Extraordinary Pantene Commercial that featured deaf people too. Maybe these commercials have the same writers.

Once there were three trees on a hill in the woods. They were discussing their hopes and dreams when the first tree said, ‘Someday I hope to be a treasure chest. I could be filled with gold, silver and precious gems. I could be decorated with intricate carving and everyone would see the beauty.’
Then the second tree said, ‘Someday I will be a mighty ship. I will take Kings and queens across the waters and sail to the corners of the world. Everyone will feel safe in me because of the strength of my hull.‘

Lent is a Catholic tradition which is very much practiced here in the Philippines. It is a period of the Liturgical Year leading up to Easter. The traditional purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer — through prayer, penitence, almsgiving and self-denial. And Holy Week marks the Death and Resurrection of the Lord, Jesus Christ.
Lent starts on Ash Wednesday (March 9, 2011) and ends on (23 April 2011), which is the day before Easter. The color I usually see during Lenten Season is Purple, which I know symbolizes a Royal color, which in … [ Continue reading Lenten Season 2011: What’s your sacrifice? ]

One weekend, my friend Coe wants to escape from the busy and upbeat environment of the City to reflect. She asked me information about staying in Caleruega since 2 years ago, I went there on my own for my time of solitude. Since I wanted to be back, I told her if she wants me to accompany her. True enough, she agreed.
Without so much planning, we had 1 day to check and reserve a room if not in Caleruega, some place near. Since it’s a retreat season for most of the Catholic schools, it’s no doubt Caleruega Retreat House … [ Continue reading Escape from the busy City ]
