WHENEVER I attend mass on Sundays, there is a part I always look forward to - it is when the priest says, “My peace I give you; look not on our sins, but on the faith of your people and graciously grant us peace and unity in accordance to Your will. The peace of the Lord be with you... Offer each other a sign of peace.”
I often offer a sign of peace by a respectful greeting to the person on my side, in front and the back. Others do a handshake, or a bow between strangers, or a kiss hug between family members hoping peace reigns among us.

IT WAS just a couple of years ago when Walltrix toyed with the idea of bringing America back in Baguio City. The idea cropped up when the concert producers noticed Baguio people are very sentimental as far as music is concerned.
Tickets were sold out for the concert featuring The Lettermen. They saw the audience singing along with the artists. The Lettermen were a hit among the Filipinos back in the days.

THE Rural Bank of Itogon (RBI), Mangaldan Branch, had its family outing in Davao recently. Davao has a population of nearly 1.5M with an area of 2,444 sq. Km. Climate is tropical with an average of 15 to 34 C.
Davao City’s true wealth lies in its culture and history thanks to the legacies of its indigenous and Muslim tribes. According to historians, the word Davao is a result of the phonetic blending of words from three Bagobo sub-groups, meaning “beyond the higher grounds” or “over the hills yonder”, a reference to the location of Davao River, a trading settlement. When different tribes went to the area, they would say that they were going to ‘Davoh’ (Obo group, considered the earliest tribe to settle in the area).

WHO runs the world? Women? Men? Is it the powerful, the rich, the beautiful or the strong? Everybody is involved in the world. John Donne said, “No man is an island.” We belong to a family, a group, a unit. We are not alone and we don’t own the world.
Getting involved in the world is to be closer to people, be a part of their lives, dreams, goals towards progress and development. Every individual’s strength, effort and energy combine to make a small world of people caring, helping, living with a common purpose.

WHAT is nicer on a rainy day than to come out of the pouring rain into the house to a bowl of hot soup? Nothing. That’s the best. The utter best. Although these days the array of packaged soups on the grocery shelves seem to be endless, it would be so wonderful if we can give our family a rich homemade soup/stock or broth with a sandwich or with hot rice.

IT WAS a stormy day. Standing near the window, on the highest floor of the house, looking and shivering I watched very closely how the storm of strong rainwater, heavy downpours from the heavens galloping fast flashing and flowing on the grounds. It overflows some paths and pavements. Immediately I can foreshadow danger. Negative thoughts came out from my mind, what if the trees around us can’t hold the water anymore, what if the soil cannot hold on and landslides may occur, what will happen to us? Very anxious, I slowly closed my eyes and prayed for God’s protection.

Sometimes, we engage ourselves in situations not pleasing in the eyes of God and men. We divulge in activities that destroy our values, virtues and the essence of our very own existence. Years pass and time flies and we have to repent for our sins.
