Be God's

I discovered this song last February. It was morning, I was alone at home and it was my birthday. I then went to school after lunch. It is one of my favorite song - it makes a lot of sense.

If you want the world to change, Be God's love...

The Greatest Thing

I think I haven't mentioned here that I was once a member of a band. It's a cultural band actually, and we played angklungs. We practice the song "The Greatest Things In All My Life" but we never performed it.

The songs is simple yet touching. Enjoy!

Friday Thoughts

My brother told me that I should not put in my blog the school where I am going to transfer because it would be dangerous.

I took my admission test yesterday, and I never thought it would be that long! I, together with other examinees, took the test for almost four hours. When I took the admission test from the Polytechnic University of the Philippines and Lyceum of the Philippines (Batangas), it took me less than two hours.


I just subscribed to The Christophers. I received one (or two) copy of their mini-brochure and I find it beautiful. But it took me two years before subscribing! Everytime I think of subscribing, I easily forget to do so. But now, at last I am able to subscribe! Click the link if you are interested.


Speaking of interest, I find it interesting again to download reflections from Pray-As-You-Go. I listen to the reflections everytime I travel to school. PAYG is very beautiful. I am looking forward to the part where you'll reflect upon the Gospel or a Reading. I love the music, it makes the noisy environment conducive to contemplation  PAYG is a proof that you can pray anywhere, as God is present everywhere.

They now provide reflections for weekends. I'll download the Pentecost reflections and listen to it to prepare for the Holy Mass.

Although I won't travel for an hour anymore because my new school is near, I would still continue to download PAYG. Maybe I can PAYG during breaks or vacant periods, PAYG while eating (ooh, monastic style!) but never during a lecture! St Ignatius wouldn't be happy with that for sure!


I have read 3/4 of the book Poustinia, and now I am reading "God is Love Alone and Glimmers of Happiness" by Brother Roger of Taize. It is published by the Society of Saint Paul. Brother Roger mentions his visits with the Popes. This makes me wish to meet the Pope. The first part "God is Love Alone" talks about trusting the Lord, and how we need that today!


Have a blessed and wonderful weekend!

Transferring to Another School

Saying goodbye to Polytechnic University of the Philippines. I am on the 80% of the transferring process.

On Thursday, I'll take an admission test on another school. The name of the new school is a secret because my brother said it would be very beautiful to surprise our old classmates studying there. I would reveal it later.

I'm also saying goodbye to Psychology. I am taking a different course... in fact, VERY different. The course that I have written on the application form is not related to Psychology. I cannot even connect the two. It's also a secret by now, but I would soon reveal it.

I am not happy to leave my friends at PUP. But looking on the sunny side, I can practice my Catholic faith "better" in the new school. They have daily Mass there and a chapel for Eucharistic adoration. The Mass makes the transfer exciting. :)

For All You've Done

 There are experiences that we cannot understand, especially when we thought we have made a very good plan and the fruits weren't as expected. There are things that we do not know why they came into our lives. But with a little patience, we'll know the answers soon.

It's frustrating, isn't it? But God knows what He is doing. Psalm 77 says His ways are holy. Sometimes we want it our way, then blame the Lord if things went wrong. It's very sad to hear people blaming God for everything. Why not take up the holy ways?

So It's May

I've been silenced by the silent retreat last week. Blogging won't take away the inner silence that I now treasure a lot.

I just saw this picture. It was used as a "signature" by a Catholic Answers user (EmeraldWings). I would just put it here because the words, which came from the Psalm 57:7, are very meaningful to me. I know it means something to me, but I do not know what it is. The words speak to my heart for the past days after the retreat.
