The cross in our lives

By

The story is told about a man who promised the Lord that he would follow Him and take up His cross across the seven mountains of life. But as he journeyed and struggled on, he began to complain about the weight and size of his cross, at times even sawing off some parts of it to make his travel easier. When he reached the seventh mountain, alas! He could not cross over to the other side, because his cross was too short.

Commission

By

The story is told about a mother superior of a small congregation in a remote village. She was dying and she would not eat or drink anything. One of the nuns saw an Irish whisky in the kitchen and poured a generous amount of it into a glass of milk. When the mother superior tasted it, she took one more sip, then one more until she finished the whole glass! After she said her final instructions and goodbye, she closed her eyes. Suddenly she opened them again and said: “Oh, one more thing: No matter what happens to our congregation, don’t sell that cow!” And with that, she expired, with a smile!

‘Season of Creation’

The “Season of Creation” campaign of the Archdiocese of Manila is well named. Similar campaigns are held in many countries as a celebration of the Earth during the month of September. In the Philippines, it will run on Sept. 1-Oct. 5, with the aim of encouraging Filipino Catholics to be “more proactive in protecting and preserving the environment.” Celebrations of the Mass, such as the opening Mass to be officiated by Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle, will be joined with an information campaign on pressing environmental problems throughout the archdiocese’s many parishes and communities.
