Are distractions in our prayers displeasing to God?
No, distractions in our prayers are not displeasing to God, unless they are willful.
Distractions are the wandering of our imagination.  If we deliberately let it wander and do not even try to pray, that is a sin.  But if it wanders when we do not want it to, then this does no harm to our prayer.  It is still good and pleasing to God.

Such a prayer God has guaranteed to answer.

How can we show our gratitude to God?

As community of believers, we must have a great desire to spread our faith; to edify others by being a...


Book marks, leave Marks!

We put some words and phrases that can inspire other Paekswela students. This project showed how students care for others. These were just very simple items yet touches hearts of other people. We exchanged book marks and were surprised with the messages written by our co-Paeskwela. All I can say is “This stuff is so cool!”

The Blessed Virgin’s body lay radiant with light.  Her eyes were closed, and her hands were folded on her breast.  Her body was wrapped in a shroud and blue mantle with greatest reverence and modesty.
The Apostles must have been perceived the glory of her soul in that moment. And then with their own hands, they reverently and carefully lifted the body of the Blessed Virgin onto a bier.  Candles were then lit and set around it, and although they burned for many hours, they were not at all consumed.  The Apostles heard angels singing:

The cry of the people is the cry of God

!The country is awash with cash. A day after the State of the Nation Address (SONA), the President presented to Congress a budget of P2.6 trillion for 2015. Of that P500 billion is a special fund, not itemized. It  falls under the discretionary fund of the Office of the President . The opposition calls it the President’s pork barrel. Some lawmakers call it a legalized version of the much maligned Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP).
