This photo is taken by Zr Custodio, during sunset in their place, according to him the Island fronting them is the Island of Leyte. Noticed the cloud formation having lit with sunlight, amazingly creates an optical image as the Face of GOD, looking down on an Island.

Recently the world turned their attention to the Philippines, when the strongest, and most devastating storm Yolanda (Haiyan) hit the area of Leyte, thousands of lives were lost and thousands had left homeless because of that super typhoon. This image could be a message that God is always looking at us with full of compassion and mercy, that God never forget his people in the Philippines, especially the survivors of the super typhoon. Let us just pray for continued recovery and welfare of the people in that place, that eventually they will forget the heart crashing tragedy they experienced and moving onward for the betterment of their lives and continue their journey to live and experience the love of God in their heart. May God bless us always.

Let me share to you the lyrics of song "The Face of God"

To see the face of God is my heart’s desire 

to gaze upon the Lord is my one desire



For God so loved the world 

He gave His son, 

His only be gotten son



And they shall call him Emmanuel,

The prince of peace,

The hope of all the world



Coda:

Emmanuel, Emmanuel, Emmanuel 
May this be our desire everyday of our lives.

NOVENA TO GOD’S LOVE

Today, I receive all of God’s love for me.
Today, I open myself to the unbounded, limitless,
overflowing abundance of God’s Universe.
Today, I open myself to God’s Blessings, healing and miracles.
Today, I open myself to God’s Word so
I become more like Jesus everyday.
Today, I proclaim that
I’m God’s Beloved,
I’m God’s Servant,
I’m God’s powerful champion,
And because I am blessed,
I am blessing the world,
In Jesus Name,
Amen.
From The Feast by Bro. Bo Sanchez

QUEENSHIP OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY - August 22

August 22 is the Feast of The Immaculate Heart of Mary, Traditional Calendar and the Queenship of Mary, the New Calendar. October 11 is the Feast of the Divine Maternity, both Calendars and the Queenship of Mary, Traditional Calendar.

On the 11th OF October 1954, Pope Pius XII established the Feast of the Queenship of Mary to be celebrated throughout the world, and commanded that on that day each year, the world should renew its consecration to her. In the future the Feast came to be celebrated on 22nd of August.

"The purpose of the Feast is that all may recognize more clearly and venerate more devoutly the merciful and motherly sovereignty of her who bore God in her womb" (Ven. Pius XII, Ad. Coeli Reginam).

On the day of her Assumption, Mary our Mother was solemnly crowned by Christ and received by the whole court of Heaven as Queen.

What Christ has done in Heaven and the Church has done on our behalf we should now do individually, that is, we should recognize Mary's Queenship, enthrone her in our homes, consecrate ourselves to her and, by this means, establish in our lives the reign of Mary Immaculate Queen of the Universe.

Happy Day Lyrics - Tim Hughes

// Leave a Comment
The greatest day in history
Death is beaten, You have rescued me
Sing it out, Jesus is alive

The empty cross, the empty grave
Life eternal, You have won the day
Shout it out, Jesus is alive
He's alive

Oh, happy day, happy day
You washed my sin away
Oh, happy day, happy day
I'll never be the same
Forever I am changed

When I stand in that place
Free at last, meeting face to face
I am yours, Jesus, You are mine

Endless joy, perfect peace
Earthly pain finally will cease
Celebrate, Jesus is alive
He's alive

Oh, what a glorious day
What a glorious way
That You have saved me
Oh, what a glorious day
What a glorious name

Empty Space - Bukas Palad

// Leave a Comment
There's an empty space in your distant gaze,
and you may look away, the void still stays.
There's a hollow part in your weary heart,
and though you try again, no smile can hide your pain.
Fear not the night within. That's where My light begins,
so you may one day see My face. Only I can fill your days.

There's a raging storm in your broken soul,
and how you wish away your troubled days.
There's an open door at your deepest core,
and though you lose your way you'll still come home someday.

Fear not the noise within, that's where My voice begins,
so you may one day hear My song. Only I can still your storms.

There's an empty room, there's a hidden wound:
this heart that burns for you, if only you knew.
You're the missing part in My yearning heart,
and I will stay around until the day you're found

May this, My whispered song,
lead you to come back home
till we're no longer far apart.
Then will your laughter fill My heart.

The seven contrary or capital virtues

// Leave a Comment
The Seven Contrary Virtues which are specific opposites to the Seven Deadly Sins: Humility against pride, Kindness against envy, Abstinence against gluttony, Chastity against lust, Patience against anger, Liberality against greed, and Diligence against sloth.


The seven contrary or capital virtues are as follows:

1. Humility – Humility is the virtue that counters pride. As pride leads to other sin, true humility clears a path for holiness. Pride is a sin based on undue and inappropriate appreciation of one’s self worth. Conversely, the virtue of humility is about modest behavior, selflessness and the giving of respect.

2. Liberality – Liberality, or generosity, is the virtue that is counter to greed – the sin of immoderate desire for earthly things. The virtue of liberality is focused not merely on the appropriate concern regarding one’s earthly things, but furthermore on generosity and a willingness to give, freely and without request for commendation.

3. Chastity – Chastity is the counter-virtue to the sin of lust. Chastity embraces moral wholesomeness and purity, and in both thought and action treats God’s gift of sexuality with due reverence and respect.

4. Meekness – Meekness, or patience, is the virtue that counters the sin of unjust anger, also called wrath or rage. Where the sin of wrath is about quick temper and unnecessary vengeance, the virtue of meekness focuses on patiently seeking appropriate resolution to conflicts, and on the ability to forgive and show mercy.

5. Temperance – The virtue of temperance or abstinence counters the sin of gluttony. To be gluttonous is to over-indulge. On the opposite hand, the virtue of temperance is centered on self-control and moderation.

6. Kindness – Kindness, or brotherly love or love for one’s neighbor, is the virtue which counters the sin of envy. Envy, in contradiction to God’s law of love, is manifest in a person’s sorrow and distress over the good fortune of another person. Conversely, kindness and brotherly love is manifest in the unprejudiced, compassionate and charitable concern for others.

7. Diligence – Diligence, or persistence, is the virtue which acts as a counter to the sin of sloth. Sloth, as a capital sin, refers to laziness in matters of Faith. Diligence in matters of the spiritual combat laziness and this virtue is manifest in appropriately zealous attitudes toward living and sharing the Faith.
