“Dai ako napadigdi sa pagpara kan katugunan, kundi sa pag-utob kaiyan.” An katugunan nin Kagurangnan igwang pambihirang halaga kun kaya ini dai nanggad mapapara sa ano pa man na panahon. Iyan an burabod nin satong kaligtasan.
Jessie was first a cousin. But she became a poet, a good one, published and winning many awards. When presented with a choice between medical internship and a fellowship at Silliman University, she opted to postpone her medical studies in favor of a summer with poets and writers.
The tragedy of people power is that people in power forget the people and the people forget their power. The first part, that of people in power forgetting the people, is nowhere more glaring than in the reaction of Communications Development and Strategic Planning Secretary Ricky Carandang
With the Rabusa exposé on “conversion” in the Armed Forces, it is imperative that President Noynoy act swiftly to ensure we don’t end up with just another unsubstantiated bombshell that gets forgotten with the next headline. Allegations remain naked assertions unless backed up by evidence obtained lawfully and which could stand up in a court of law.
If the Aquino government really wants to solve the problem of hunger and poverty, it should exercise its “political will” in the right direction: toward defending the rights and interest of the poor majority and the general public.
May duwang klaseng buhay: practical asin poetic, o kinabanon asin langitnon. An lambang tawo naghahanap nin kaogmahan. Alagad, igwa man duwang klase nin kaogmahan: practical asin poetic, o kinabanon asin langitnon. An hinahanap nin tawong kaogmahan depende sa klase nin buhay na igwa sya.
An kinaban harong nin paglaom. Sain man na parte kan kinaban kita mag-erok, sa lantad o kapatagan, sa bulod o sa kababan, sa disyerto o sa kadlagan, sa kadagatan o sa kaumahan, igwa kitang dara-darang paglaom.
Rome has recognized a miracle attributed to the late Pope John Paul II’s intercession: the healing of a French nun, Marie Simon-Pierre, from Parkinson’s disease—the same illness that the late Pope endured in his last years. Pope Benedict XVI has set JP II’s beatification on May 1.
As far as I have been exposed to the way of life and culture of Filipinos, we are a group of people who intensely value the family. Despite our exposure to western culture and practices via information technology, we genuinely value family bonds. Economic well-being comes second to a united family.
I always get this feeling horoscopes have gone already the way of the postage stamps (the kind one licks and pastes on an envelope) and telegrams (the proto-form of texting). And yet horoscopes are having resurgence over radios and in televisions.
The recent showing of our football national men’s team in the AFF Suzuki Cup where they got into the semifinals has put football in the national consciousness. But the reality is that our country only moved up one slot to the 150th spot in the latest Dec. 2010 FIFA world rankings. Yes, that’s how far we have to go if we want to see our team playing in the World Cup Finals scheduled for 2014 in Brazil.
Ngunyan na Domingo, satong siniselebrar an pagbunyag ni Jesus. An pagbunyag ki Jesus bakong pagpara kan kasalan huli ta mayo man syang kasalan, kundi ini an tanda kan kapinunan kan saiyang misyon digdi sa kinaban.
PANAHON NA SUBUOT KAN MGA bagong midya: mga sagurong nin komunikasyon sa panahon na haros an gabos ginigibo nang elektroniko, digital asin computerized. Sinasabing ginigibo kaining orog na kaskas an paglipat asin riribayán nin impormasyon.
Brother Philip Pinto, who heads the Congregation of Christian Brothers, says religious life in its traditional sense is “dying” across the world, but wants people to accept the process as part of God’s plan.
If Filipinos had dreamed that public health care may improve under the new Aquino government, which packaged itself as an agent of change with a “health for all” agenda during the election campaign, its 2010 performance would come as a nasty shock. The recently signed national budget and the cuts it inflicted on public health spending for 2011 signify the opposite of change.
It is the last day of the year and even if this terminating of the year is a fairly recent human invention, we are convinced really that the 31st of December of any year is the last day of the year. And, sorrow and regrets are fashionable and smart response to this realization.
Some people have New Year’s Resolutions and some people buy round fruits. If I may borrow a classic comment from Cristy Fermin who is consistent with her abhorrence of Kris Aquino, which I share: Kris is someone who, it seems does not have New Year’s resolutions. The punch line is this: kaya si Kris inuulit niya ang sarili na parang kasaysayan.
Sa paglipas kan panahon, may mga kayumagging Pinoy na boot nang mag-bago nin kublit. An konsepto kan kagayonan nabagohan naman. Siring man an mga balor asin mga pagtubod, nagkaigwa naman asin padagos na nagkakaigwa sinda nin bagong pagpapakahulugan.
The pope’s message to the cardinals sitting around him at the Vatican may be a worthwhile call to reflection for those old men. But, if as they trooped out of the Sala Regia, they looked through some of those windows that Pope John XXIII opened to the world they may have seen that there are rays of sunlight out there.
We will know if He is truly born in us, if we are able to look forward for the coming New Year with great hope. Love is truly powerful for it is “the greatest of them all” (Corinthians 13:13). Let us fill this New Year with the love we learned from Jesus this Christmas.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to one and all!
