    I thank the Lord for His love for humanity and all of creation, expressed in…

    …the Immaculate Conception, the singular grace to Mary of Nazareth: not only conceived without sin but also filled with grace, to make her worthy of her great role for our sakes;

    …priests, especially my brothers Ben and Mon and other Salesian priests ordained on this day; the Lord is truly Emmanuel through their anointed hands;

    …the Second Vatican Council, which 50 years ago ended today; in it, the Church ever renewed opened the windows not merely for life-giving transformation, but for audacious living of her mission; and

    …the extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, calling us all not only to witness to mercy but firstly–and constantly–to plunge into and immerse in the immense ocean of Divine Mercy.

    • The national celebration of National Youth Day (celebrated in local churches every December 16) 2015 has just been held in the Archdiocese of Tuguegarao last November 11-15. The video is one of the recap videos of this great ecclesial event for the young. Enjoy!

    • Wow, the Catholic Church is very much alive among the young Filipinos. :clap: :asperges:

  • Before I retire tonight, may I seek your prayers for myself and my classmates who will have our final exams tomorrow (our first semester in our first year in the Masters in Religious Studies program of the Don Bosco Center of Studies. Philippines).
    Through the help of the Holy Spirit, may this exercise glorify God and help bring us closer to Him and to the fulfillment of His saving will in our lives–including yours.
    Thank you! Blessed be God!

  • A Checklist of Things that Religious Educators Need to Tell the Young for at least the Next 25 Years, according to James DiGiacomo SJ, “Morality and Youth”, 1993 (!)
    1) Consumerism is a shallow and ultimately unsatisfying way of life.
    2) Religion is a community affair. We cannot do it alone.
    3) The Eucharist is essential to the Christian life.
    4) We cannot dismiss the Church and call ourselves Catholic.
    5) God not only loves us but also makes demands.
    6) Jesus is more than a pal.
    7) Some of our moral choices may be wrong.
    8) Premarital sex is not a right.
    9) Working for social justice is not optional.
    10) We must measure up to what God wants, not the other way around.
