“You are the salt of the earth.

But if salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned?

It is no longer good for anything

But to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

(cf. Mt 5: 13- 14)

From the moment of Baptism, God intended for us to be “salt of the earth.” It is our mission to transform the earth’s millions of souls from being non-believers to believers in the Good News, established by Jesus Christ and continued by Peter and his Church in Rome. In the millennia that have passed, the Church has stressed that all members are unified to practice three virtues of faith, hope and love. These virtues enable us to receive grace from God and assist us in the goal of entering someday the Kingdom of Heaven as God intended us to become members.

Sunday  evening of February 5, 2017 at 6:30, the Saint Andrew the Apostle Parish (SAAP)  celebrated its 50th Year! Bishop Broderick Pabillo celebrated the Eucharistic celebration together with 18 guests priests and our Parish Priest Monsignor Dennis Odiver and Father Allan Dichoso. The church was full, bursting at the seams so to speak. It is SAAP’s jubilee year.The choir rose to the occasion , their voices and instruments blending in rapturous harmony. As they sang Amore et Servire and the St. Andrew anniversary song, it was as if the angels’ choir sang with them. The church ground which was full of church goers was a delight to behold. The big ancient tree fronting the church was ablaze with cascading lights like candles. As soon the final blessing was said, Monsignor Dennis invited everyone to see the mini fireworks spectacle that lasted a few but meaningful minutes that makes the SAAP parishioner feels proud. A packed dinner of rice, chicken and beef was distributed and shared later.  Indeed, it was a grace-filled night to remember!


The Feast of the Santo Niño is a feast widely celebrated in our country. From the Sinulog festivities in Cebu to the countless celebrations here in Manila, we cannot deny that, truly, this is a celebration that marks the end of the Christmas season.

Davao blast kills 14…

So what? Life goes on.

School. Work. Vacation. Home. Community. Church.

Everything is to proceed as planned. Unless one is a victim, a relative or a friend, there is no room to a disruption in the cycle of life. Let our elected president demonstrate his power. What a ‘better’ way to agitate the opponent than to hit one’s home…
