The grace of the Sacrament of Reconciliation

Finally, I got the chance of receiving the grace of the sacrament of reconciliation when i went to Baclaran Church at this day, July 30, 2014.  After a year or so of having not confessing my sins to a priest I courageously accepted my faults and my sins and reconciled all of my sins to God.  It was a feeling of hope, joy, and a chance to be holy.  It's like a ton of heavy load was removed from my heart. That's how heavy it was when i was carrying all that burden of sins for the past years.

I realized at this point of my life wherein it is a chance being given to me by God to be holy as he was holy. I repent all of my sins and made a promise to God not to be in a state of sin anymore.  It was a new beginning for me to spread his kingdom into this chaotic world.  How I wish all people will repent and not do all of the wrong doings, how peaceful would this place be.

The priest reminded me that Jesus is always with me every step of the way.  It entered into my mind that if i commit sin I drive Jesus out of my life.  As a devout catholic, how ashamed it would be if i kept on sinning when Jesus is beside me.  I love to serve in my community but if I'm always thinking bad thoughts against my neighbors, friends, family members, is this the way serve the Lord. It's like always "showing off" to my community that I'm a straight person because I am serving the church.  It's a big MISTAKE! I said to myself that if I want to serve the Lord it must be whole. Meaning a positive change must be felt by Soul,Body,Spirit. The only one that could clean me and heal me is Jesus Christ.  


Lord I thank you for the gift of Reconciliation you have given me. As you made me clean today, make me a better person, and give me courage in resisting my "comfort zones" and temptations. Teach me to value all the people around me specially my loved ones.  As I received your blessing may they also receive your blessings. Lord continue to be with me every step of the way that i may not fall because of sins.  I believe Lord that you are enough for me and I know you will provide all of my needs in this world.  I surrender all my hurt and lackings in this world  and may the Love you shared to me, May I willingly share to all the people i have come in contact with  in my daily activities.  I ask this in the Loving and Mighty name of Jesus Christ, through the Intercession of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Mary mother of God and mother of the Church, AMEN.

Act of Contrition
            O my God, I am heartily sorry for
            having offended you, and I detest
            all my sins, because of Your just
            punishments, but most of all because
            they offend You, my God, who are
            all-good and deserving of all my love.
            I firmly resolve, with the help of
            Your grace, to sin no more and to
            avoid the near occasion of sin.

   Act of Contrition (modern)
            My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart.
                  In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good,
                  I have sinned against you whom I should love above all things.
                  I firmly intend, with your help, to do penance, to sin no more,
                  and to avoid whatever leads me to sin.
                  Our Savior Jesus Christ suffered and died for us.
                  In His name, my God, have mercy.

Shared Experience "The Feast"

Romans 12: 10

               "Love one another in mutual affection, Out do one another in showing Affection"

What a beautiful verse.  I share ko lang ang mga natutunan ko at napakinggan when i first attended "The Feast" in PICC .

          According to brother Bo to please a partner is easy. It does not need more money to buying luxurious gifts or even travelling in a nice place, To women its like a point earn not for a very long time but it is a point a day.  And another day, the points a guys earned is back to zero. The point is small things that you do to a woman in a day is a plus point for a guy.

          For a guy naman to be pleased by a woman, she should give the guy to take control of the situation.  Halimbawa, the wife said " Honey, ayusin mo nga ung gripo natin kasi natulo kahit full closed na." and normally the husband would say "LATER!"...The husband will not answer for a No instead he will delay his action until the wife will again remind the husband to fix the gripo again...Next is the women must pull back in the situation. Do not treat the guy as in like a child. Halimbawa.  Honey ayusin mo nga ung gripo kasi natulo. pumunta ka sa hardware bumili ka ng gripo ung maganda hwag mo kalimutan ung teflon tape. Kung wala kang gamit manghiram ka kay Mang Carding. kung wlang gamit si mang Carding, pumunta ka kay Mang Olan. ah pag tatawid ka tumingin ka muna sa kaliwa at kanan mo...My God! the woman is treating the guy like a kid giving detailed instructions..How would the guy would feel...Not good d b.

          So as we recall the bible verse Romans 12:10, each one of us must affirmed each others right doings in life.  Let each other feel that he or she is wanted.  We must apply this to have a good and lasting relationships as parents to his/her son daughter, as friends, as community members, as gf and bf, as to our co employee as in every person that we met in our daily lives.

           So I pray, Lord thank you for having invited me to "The Feast". Thank you for all the wisdom, knowledge, Joy that I have experieced this Day. May I continue to serve you and my community in my utmost best.  Pour out your blessings and Grace in the week to come and that i may learned to affirmed and appreciate the people that I have in contact with  in my daily activities. I lift all my worries and troubles to you that you will grant me your solution to all of my problems.  I ask this in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, AMEN.

July 24 2012 (Walk with God)

There are so many blessings that I have received this day.  Just when i woke up in the morning is a blessing.
It is an oppurtunity to have a new day with the Lord.  After opening up my laptop, I sung a few praise and worship songs to the Lord to preapre myself to received the good news of the day.  I pray and was blessed.
I started walking and said to God, Lord lets walk!  I have learned in one of the talk of Bro Bo Sanchez that walking 10000 ten thousand steps a day  is the healthy way of exercising our body. So I moved.  My destination is to reach Baywalk in Malate. But once i got to cross the street of dakota, i realized and thought that since I'm A SLOW WALKER  i was already left by God.  But to think again God never left me but he clears the path of the way that i will be walking.  Just as in everyday activity of our life God always clears the path of our doing.  He saves us from any harm that will be brought against us because we are his children.
