Ashes to ashes, dust to dust… goes a pop song from the 70’s. On Wednesday, the first day of March this 2017 is Ash Wednesday. It is the start of the 40-day Lenten celebration of the Catholic Church. The highlights are the passion, death (contained in the sorrowful mysteries of the holy rosary) and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ, the founder of Christianity is the only God in this whole wide universe who rose from the death and went up to heaven body and soul.   How fortunate we Christians are because our God is a living God.

Temptations are part of our human existence. When we say the Lord’s Prayer, we ask the heavenly Father to “lead us not into temptation.” This does not mean that God is the cause of temptations. The Apostle St. James pointed that out: “No one experiencing temptation should say, ‘I am being tempted by God’; for God is not subject to temptation to evil, and He himself tempts no one.” (cf. Jas 1: 13)

Last Saturday, Feb. 25, 2017 the St. Andrew the Apostle community gathered in the church to pray the rosary for peace. Msgr. Dennis brought out the monstrance to expose the Host of the Blessed Sacrament. This was our way of expressing our solidarity with our countrymen who gathered in the 31st annual celebration of the “people power revolution.”

 

“I came that they may have LIFE, and have it abundantly”(Cf. Jn 10:10)”

The parishioners from St. Andrew the Apostle Parish expressed their cooperation to the calling of Catholic Bishop Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) to WALK FOR LIFE last February 18, 2017, Saturday at the Quirino Grandstand Manila.
