Balik-Tanaw | 17th Sunday after Pentecost: Obedience

How do we express our love for Him and keep His commandments? It is written everywhere in the Bible and still much relevant today. Love those who He loves: the poor, hungry, homeless, prisoners, persecuted, lonely, and hopeless. Have preferential option for the marginalized, disadvantaged, disenfranchised, isolated, and excluded.

BALIK-TANAW | 18th Sunday after Pentecost : The good farmers

The God I know works with the farmers who work hard to keep land fertile and productive. God is with them during planting season, during harvest time, and celebrates with them, and blesses them every time the land produces a sprout, a fruit, a produce so that life may be shared, and others may live. We should thank our farmers for that. The post BALIK-TANAW | 18th Sunday after Pentecost : The good farmers appeared first on Bulatlat......»»

Balik-Tanaw | 10th Sunday after Pentecost: God is here and there is hope

God is in every act of kindness that we extend to the people around us especially those who have lost much. In the midst of all the efforts that are being done to defeat this virus, in the midst of all the fear, doubt, desperation, anger, and frustration, an act of kindness is like a tiny, insignificant whispering sound. And yet it is there where hope springs anew. God is there. The post Balik-Tanaw | 10th Sunday after Pentecost: God is here and there is hope appeared first on Bulatlat......»»

Balik-Tanaw | Pentecost: Together in one place

As we continue to live every day under the pandemic, as followers of the God of justice, I hope that we may never give in to the temptation to be silent and be complacent as the State and the ruling class slowly reveal to us the “new normal” that would only selfishly favor their interests. If we don’t learn to speak the tongues of the people, if we don’t shout with them their calls #MassTestingNow, #AyudaNgayonNa, and #SerbisyongMedikalHindiMilitar, we fail to do our crucial role as church-people.
