From culinary desert to paradise

By

When I was a student in Maryknoll College (now Miriam) on Katipunan Avenue in Quezon City, Loyola Heights, as the general area was then known, was kind of a culinary desert.

Response to China: ‘Usjaphil’

By

When a bigger guy like China pushes us, a puny nation, the first reflex is not to fight back because we are too small. But when push comes to shove, we rethink our position in two ways.

Deepest darkness

By

Some days ago, an American professor at Harvard Divinity School caused quite a stir by claiming to have come into the possession of a fragment of an ancient scroll that seemed to indicate that Jesus Christ was married. There’s a part there, says Karen King, that says, “Jesus said to them, ‘my wife.’”

‘Agnihotra’ for Earth’s health

By

On April 9, Araw ng Kagitingan, I attended a workshop offered by kindred souls concerned about the healing of Earth and its inhabitants. But more than just being concerned about our wounded planet, these persons are preoccupied with the enrichment of our earthly dwelling and our own human lives.
