Birth is the start of life. It’s where everything begins so it’s only appropriate that we express how grateful we are for being born in this world. It’s like getting a key to a new house and opening the door for the very first time. A birthday is a significant event that many people like to remember and honor every…Read More »

One should suppose that it is inevitable that each generation will have unique characteristics, all of which have been shaped by what has been happening in their times.

In the Philippines, it’s common knowledge that Christmas starts in the Ber months. The winds get colder, multi-colored lights deck buildings, holiday songs play on the radio. It’s enough to give you the Christmas spirit, which in turn propels one to feel like putting together a Christmas list. That’s how it is with me and my family. But this year,…Read More »

Growing up Catholic liberated and stifled me at the same time. From prep to college, Sunday masses were regularly attended. The Holy Rosary was prayed often, especially during October.
