ALL THE TIME!

By Sr. Joy A. De Vera, RA “Would you like to hear the story of the gingerbread boy?  It’s the story of a cookie that looks like just a boy... He’s made of ginger, sugar, and spice...” I was fascinated whenever I would hear Sr. Lala sing this story. The child in me is being... Continue Reading →
