Now I Know

by Ethiel C. Roxas, AA As I walk in the same route going to the marketplace,I saw a child sleeping half-naked near a store.I looked at the sky and ask, “Why, Lord, do you allow this?”And the sun continues to shine.

On Empty Stomach (Reflection on JN 6:44-51)

by Johanne Arceo When the lockdown was announced, I found it quite interesting to witness how we are quick to differentiate our basic needs from our excesses. It has become common to hear the terms “essential” and “non-essential” in describing our purchases and activities. Faced with the looming uncertainty of this lockdown’s extent and the...

“Para kanino ka bumabangon”

I can still vividly remember that famous line from a commercial of a coffee product. What arouses (or excites?) us? What keeps us going? What keeps us on track and face the struggles of daily life with confidence and renewed courage? For whom are we sacrificing for? Why do I need to stay at home?... Continue Reading →

Alaala

by Cielo Sarno Nabalot ng dilim, may sikat man ng araw.Maalab kong puso, nilamon ng ginaw.Bakal na kasuotan, sa takot ay nalusaw.Pangakong paghayo, ‘di maaninag, ‘di matanaw. Diwa ko’y nalunod sa hapdi ng Iyong paglisan.Nananaghoy ang pusong balot sa kalungkutan.Saysay ng aking Pagsunod naglaho ang kahulugan.Galak ng alala Mo’y tinangay ng kamatayan. Tumalikod sa Iyo,...

Roxas Maraming kwentong- buhay ang puno ng kahulugan,Ngunit marami ding nabubuhay na parang lipas oras lang.Sa bawat pagtatangka at pagtuklas ng kabuluhan,May nagtatagumpay at mayroon ding tinalo ng dagok sa buhay. Lahat naman ang gusto ay magandang buhay,May sapat na pagkain, masayang pamilyang nananahan.Ang kasiyahan ay iba- iba at minsa’y saglit lang,Madalas... Continue Reading →

Forget Not

by Mark Anthony Muya They say that forgetfulness is a gift. Sometimes, it means running away from hurts and difficulties. Remembrance, on the other hand, is making present the things dear to us, those we wish to never forget. On the road to Emmaus, while the two disciples were hopeless because of the Messiah's death,...

Siklo

by Francis Miguel Panday Sa labing-apat na buwanna hindi pagbuhos ng ulan,unti-unting nagbubuwag-buwagmga pira-piraso ng lupang naduwag. Gabi noon, nang muling magparamdam;nagbadyang muling makialam,magdulot ng bagong pakiramdamitong ulan na naglaho nang walang paalam. Mga patak na noo’y pigil na pigil,ngayo’y handang maningil.Kahit anong iwas ang gawinbabagsak at babagksak pa rinsa lupang hindi magtatagal aylilisanin pa... Continue Reading →
