Sulat Ka Ha!

"Sulat ka ha!" ang malimit kong sinasabi noon o marinig kapag may umaalis at may aalis (siempre yung umaalis sa lugar kung nasan ako kasi kung yung umaalis sa puso e malamang di na susulat yun). Noon yun nung uso pa ang sulat kamay at ang pagpapadala sa post office. Ngayon halos ang lahat ng mga sulat ay sa email na pinapadala. Karamihan na lang na dumadaan sa snail mail ay yung mga transactional letters or business letters.

Palagay ko maganda pa din yung sulat na pinapadala sa pamamagitan ng post office kasi may mahahawakan kang ala-ala. Sulat na pinaghirapan gawin. Sulat kamay man yan o printed basta atleast nasa papel at pwede mong ulit uliting basahin o itago sa karton ng mga liham. Sulat na ginastosan sa pagbili ng embelop at stamp. May pananabik kasi, maghihintay ka talaga ng ilang lingo o buwan bago makatangap ng sulat mula sa pinadalhan mo. May excitement.

Salamat sa nagpadala ng sulat sa akin nung isang araw. Binigyan mo ako ng idea na ibalik ung dating exchange ng sulat through snail mail na gawain ko noon nung nasa Spain pa ako nakatira. Sulat ka ulit ha! Hanapin u na lang address ko sa address book.

See You!

Close your eyes. What do you see? Nothing, right? Only darkness. Will you be happy if all you can see is black and empty? Well, some prefer to close their eyes to avoid seeing the reality, but I tell you, they won’t be happy, they won’t be forever happy.

Today, fourth Sunday of Lent, the two other symbols of Baptism that brings us also two important things in life are presented to us: LIGHT AND HAPPINESS. These symbols are the OIL AND THE CANDLE.The oil symbolizes that we are chosen, we are anointed, we are sent. And the candle represents Christ, the true light, our guiding light.

When God chooses someone to lead his people, he, don't usually chooses the seemingly perfect in the eyes of men. Why choose David, who is just a handsome youth, ruddy and young? Why not choose the lofty stature of the elder brother who is Eliab? Sometimes, most of the times, God chooses people who are not worthy in the eyes of men. Those whom we have never thought of. Sometimes, God chooses those who a…

Scelti, unti, portatore della Luce

Oggi, quarta domenica di Quaresima, ci sono presentati DUE SIMBOLI del Battesimo che ci ricordano due cose importanti nella nostra vita: LA LUCE E LA FELICITÀ. Questi simboli sono L'OLIO E LA CANDELA.L'olio significa che siamo scelti, siamo unti, siamo inviati. E la candela rappresenta Cristo, la vera luce, il nostro faro. 

Quando Dio sceglie qualcuno per condurre il suo popolo, di solito non sceglie qualcuno apparentemente perfetto agli occhi degli uomini. Perché sceglie Davide, che è solo un bel giovane, rubicondo e un ragazzo? Perché non ha scelto il fratello maggiore Eliab, con la statura alta e che aveva l'età giusta, come i vecchi dicono? A volte, Dio sceglie le persone che non sono degne agli occhi degli uomini. Quelli ai quali non abbiamo mai pensato. A volte, Dio sceglie chi non va bene per noi, secondo i nostri standard. Ma, purtroppo, Dio non vede come vede l'uomo. Noi spesso guardiamo l'apparenza, ma il Signore guarda al cuore. LE APPARENZE POSSONO ACCE…

Be Blessed

May the Lord bless you and keep you! May he let his face shine upon you, and be gracious to you! And may you find peace in your hearts!

Today we celebrate the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God, and at the same time, is the way we start our year with a blessing from above. It is but fitting to start the year thanking the Lord for the new beginning and the graces to be received in the coming days and months of 2017.

In today’s reflection, let us focus on four points that we can grasp from the readings of today: HURRY, KEEP, INVOKE, BLESS.

HURRY, GO IN HASTE.The shepherd didn’t waste their time to go and rush towards where the baby boy is to be found. When they were told to go, they went. And so, they found Mary and Joseph and the infant in the manger.

Most of us have had plans for the 2017. If it’s important. If you planned to change your ways, do it and start it now. Hurry. This year, it is good to start it right. If we have important things to do, don’t waste time. Do it immediately. An…
