But he lives on

By

Grief is a confusing thing. Especially when you’re in another country and you wake up, blearily check the messages on your computer, and read the news that makes you bolt straight out of bed. You have no choice but to fast-forward through the stages—from denial to depression and straight to acceptance. Well, with a little bit of anger thrown in. It’s frustrating to be away from your loved ones, and you’re expected to forget about how everyone’s coping with the tragedy that has just occurred back home—and to enjoy yourself. It’s strange and it’s selfish, and the timing cannot be any worse.

Reach out

By

The story is told about three men who arrived at the gate of heaven almost simultaneously. St. Peter asked them how they died, and the first one said: “When I entered my room, I saw that my belongings had been ransacked, and in a fit of anger I threw the heavy cabinet out of the window, and I had a heart attack.” The second one said: “I was just walking when a cabinet came falling down from above.” And the third one said: “I heard footsteps, and I went inside a cabinet to hide.”

The faith factor

By

The story is told about a man who went to a public library to borrow a book on suicide. When the librarian asked him why he was looking for this book, he said that he had lost all faith and hope, and that he wanted to end his life. Upon hearing this, the librarian replied, “We have a book, but I will not lend it out to you.” The man asked why not, whereupon the librarian said, “Tell me, who will return the book if you die?”

Healing Mass on TV every day for people of all faiths?

A few weeks after my letter (“Reader writes: Healing Mass delivers miracle”) appeared on the Inquirer’s Letters page on March 20, 2014, a Healing Eucharist Mass was held during the ABS-CBN “Umagang Kay Ganda” or “UKG” program on a Monday morning, April 14, 2014. And this gave me a thought: A Healing Eucharistic Mass shown live nationwide, on ordinary days, on an ABS-CBN morning program to give those in their respective residences the chance to participate in it, whatever their faith. Why not? I believe this Healing Eucharist of the Society of the Divine Word fathers is not exclusive to Catholics but is intended for all who are sick and who believe in God and in His gift of eternal life.

There is a way

By

The story is told about a child who asked his father: “Dad, what would happen if a bad politician drowns in the river and his body is never found?” The father answered: “Son, there would be pollution.” The son asked again: “What would happen if all bad politicians drown in the river, and their bodies are never found?” The father answered: “Son, that would be the solution.”
