THE CHURCH CLOTHED BY HER DIVINE FOUNDER
The widely published adversary and slander to theCatholic Church wherein the in-coming President Rodrigo Duterte used language loaded with strong emotional overtones against the Catholic Church prompted me toreact. I have nothing but goodwill and love for men of every faith and belief and I do not engage in parroting statements of thoughtless remarks.
The Catholic Church is not hypocrite and she is not conclusive or dictatorial as stated by Mr. Duterte. The Catholic Church has been clothed by her Founder, Jesus Christ, with authority to teach “all nations”.
I went to visit my friend Antonia over the weekend. Antonia sat alone. Her hands, wrinkled with age, rested in her lap. She wore her finest dress.
Her bedroom wall spoke of family: an enlargement of grandson Jason hugging Brando, the terrier, a framed portrait of her son Enrique, the doctor, and his family now living in Canada. Antonia and her late husband cutting their fiftieth wedding anniversary cake. “It would have been sixty years next June.”
PREPARING FOR PLACE
On the day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit has fully come, the apostles and those that were with them in the Upper Room experience such ecstasy. It was a journey. They were all of one mind and heart, all of one accord with each other and with God.
In reality, man has been waiting for the experience of Pentecost. We have been waiting a long time for God to do something in our lives, and we yield fully to Him.
