Prayer for Today

God, sometimes life seems meaningless. Good people get what evil people deserve. People work hard all their lives, then look back and wonder, “Was it worth it?” Those who are rebellious tire of their rebellion, and conformists tire of their conformity. Pleasure seekers tire of endless stimulation. Beds of pain hold both the just and the unjust. The winds of time sweep over the forgotten graves of both the good and the bad. O God, help us to trust in You, for only You can answer “Why?” You know the ultimate design. You wait until our search for meaning on this earth leaves us in despair. Only by trusting You is there freedom from the hopeless task of trying to find meaning in the kingdom of this world. Only in You do we find rest and peace. Through Jesus Christ, my Lord. Amen

Sia lodato Gesu Cristo!

My Grace is Sufficient

Bless the Lord, O my soul. May I praise You in the morning, glorify You at noon, serve and acclaim You all the day through, and thank You at day’s end. My soul proclaims my Love for You, O God, for You are wondrous and merciful. May I exalt Your name through the whole day. God, I praise You in the highest. I bless Your holy name. Your love is endless. Your grace is sufficient. Your goodness is unending. Your gift of life is eternal. Hear my prayer of praise. In Jesus’ name, Amen

Sia lodato Gesu Cristo!

Water for Lunch

Realization of Today’s Experience

God, help me to receive the surprises of each day with open arms and a yielded heart. Whether the surprises come to me as sorrows or joys, as illness or health, as challenges or successes, help me to understand that in ALL these things, YOU are God, and You work all things together for good. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Sia lodato Gesu Cristo!

Water for Lunch
Feb. 17, 20016 @ Cebu Doctors’ Hospital University

In today’s experience, technology is really important. My doctors’ appointment this morning is cancelled due to emergency call of duty, Doc Mayo, has patient that which is on critical condition, so he needs to focus on the condition of his patient as his priority this morning, and my appointment is transferred in the afternoon.

The secretary tries to call me in my mobile phone but it was surrendered to my father formator, so I was not informed that no clinic this morning. Good thing that i brought my notes for studying in preparation for my comprehensive examinations, bad thing is I have not taken my breakfast because I went out in the seminary earlier to cope my schedule and also anticipating the heavy traffic. But I have enough money for fare in my pocket, no budget for lunch but I think I can buy bottle water – So, I just have water for my lunch.
