Mothers and Children Talk

I just returned from another cell group meeting with the children and mothers in our parish's poorer section. Our gospel reading was about the Canaanite woman who asked for Jesus' help (See a commentary here. ). Once more, I had an occassion to marvel at the connection between these peoples' lives...

From The Mouth of Babes

I went to a prayer meeting for children last Saturday. It was the first time I heard kids from the poorest sector of our parish pray for their parents, friends, and teachers. I almost cried listening to Junil pray for his little brother who is sick. With dengue fever rising here in our place,... Sign in to see full entry.

I was in Tarlac City, Tarlac yesterday to celebrate the funeral mass of an uncle who passed away recently. While there, I observed a burial custom that I've not seen before.

Current Project

Last Saturday I celebrated Mass in one of the more depressed areas in our parish. People call the place "Maligaya", i.e. "Happy." It is what others would call a squatters' area. The Mass was the second celebrated in the place in two years. We made use of a vacant lot (in the pictures above, it is... Sign in to see full entry.

Finally, Work!

So, I am going to work with the families living near the railroad. After a year, I finally made contact with someone who could bring me inside the community and help me get to know the people better. I went this afternoon to my usual meeting with the Dads in our parish, but nobody turned out. They... Sign in to see full entry.

Kids At Prayer

I had been teaching my three-year old daughter the Lord's Prayer. For several evenings at bedtime, she would repeat after me the lines from the prayer. Finally, she decided to go solo. I listened with pride as she carefully enunciated each word, right up to the end of the prayer: "Lead us not into... Sign in to see full entry.
