Let’s make time for the Lord

The Jubilee Year of Mercy was meaningful for me and I was especially touched during a pilgrimage to the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. For me, pilgrimage is a sacrifice—it is a sacrifice to make time for the Lord in order to learn more about the sacred text, ethics and holy places, to deepen our faith.

Holy Family in Choi Hung

HONG KONG (SE): The Christ the King community in Holy Family parish, Choi Hung, celebrated its ninth anniversary with a musical drama competition on November 20. This year’s celebration carried the theme The life of the Holy Family in our everyday life.

Is keeping a promise important for you?

I  promised myself that I will not do unnecessary things, say bad words, always respect and understand the decisions of others. 

Promises are important, because they give people hope in something that for sure will happen at the right time. It is important to keep your promises, because once you have delivered the words, they can never be revoked; words that already linger in people’s mind and keeps them hoping until you fulfill your promise.

The resilient Filipino spirit was once again put to test when Super Typhoon Lawin hit The Philippines in October. People were alarmed and terrified as the worse of it hit the provinces. Four- to five-metre high storm surges, fierce skies, heavy rain and strong winds were threatening as forecasted.

Despite the massive losses, Lawin was not as severe as Typhoon Yolanda in 2013, because early preparation and the evacuation of the people helped and saved more lives.

Can anger help you to survive?

For me yes! Anger can help to survive any emotional illness. Anger must be expressed to prevent a heart attack, must be released to let the person know that you are upset to avoid long term misunderstandings. Anger can help you survive depression and become a stronger person.
