Grief into Joy

Grief into Joy

Jesus said to his disciples: “Amen, amen, I say to you, you will weep and mourn, while the world rejoices; you will grieve, but your grief will become joy. When a woman is in labor, she is in anguish because her hour has arrived; but when she has given birth to a child, she no […]

Child of God

Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it. (Mk 10:15). One of my favorite verses from the synoptic Gospels. What does Jesus mean when He says we must be like a ‘child’? The short answer: “A child is a more complete human being […]

Spiritual Envy

In the Gospel on 23 May, the Apostles witnessed other people “driving out demons” and they grew jealous. John asked Jesus to stop them, but Jesus did the exact opposite, saying: anyone who is not against us, they are for us. Everyone has the right to use the powerful name of Jesus for something good […]

Romantic Thoughts for Ash Wednesday

“Terminate torment Of love unsatisfied The greater torment Of love satisfied.” — T.S. Eliot, Ash Wednesday Can Catholics celebrate Valentine’s Day this year, considering that Ash Wednesday this year falls on the same date? Is the feast of love compatible with the beginning of Lent? When the obligation to do penance conflicts with the convention […]

My high school batch at St. Paul College of Pasig, a Catholic school for girls here in the Philippines run by the Sisters of St. Paul of Chartres, just celebrated its homecoming.  We prepared for it for a year, a year that was spent reminiscing about high school memories and organizing a grand celebration dinner.

Temptation and Lenten Penance

Temptation and Lenten Penance

During the Lenten season, we seek to turn back from sin and to God. Each of the practices of Lent—prayer, fasting, and almsgiving—helps us to do this. While Lent is not a season of merriment in the Church, it should nevertheless be a season of hope, and one of joy. Sin is a turning away […]

Laughing at Death

Living by faith includes the call to something greater than cowardly self-preservation. —Kurt D. Bruner, Kurt Bruner, Jim Ware, Finding God in the Lord of the Rings Yet I loathe the thought of annihilating myself quite as much now as I ever did. I think with sadness of all the books I’ve read, all the […]

A Christmas Carol & Detachment

I recently attended a live performance of the Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol. The cast did an excellent job portraying the well-known tale in a new and creative way while remaining diligently faithful to the book. This fidelity to the authentic work allowed for the original themes, the ones that Dickens intended to highlight, to shine […]

How to be Happy

What is this existence within which we humans find ourselves? Every morning we wake up and perceive the world through our senses. A perception onto which we put all of our memories to establish what we might call our point of view, one that might differ from the point of view of another. However, we […]

The Surest Path to Joy Is Living the Law of the Gift

“The human being, who is the only creature on earth that God willed for itself, cannot attain its full identity except through a disinterested gift of self.” (Gaudium et spes, 24). One of the hallmarks of St. John Paul the Great’s teachings is the “Law of the Gift”, the paradox that the more of ourselves […]
