A Note From Father Joel

Dear Co-Travelers,

Moving on….after participating, witnessing, enjoying, sharing on various special events including the National Elections, who is who and what is what then? What comes next? Moving on….history will keep everything in record. Let us continue our relationship with the Lord of history, Jesus’s  Holy Name. 

In our liturgical calendar and in this Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy, we are at its closing phase. November 20th is the last Sunday of the liturgical calendar. In that Sunday we will celebrate the Solemnity of Christ the King. Celebrating his kingship once again reminds us that we belong to Him our true Head and Leader, King of kings and king of peace. But you often hear from me, “It takes two to tango”. 

Yes, we long for peace, unity, harmony for our homes, church and community. The modern world direction is seemingly showing different route in the sense that, at least for me, all we now enjoy, avail, like all kinds of gadgets of technology and modernization, scientific research discoveries for health and ecological sustainability should by themselves help us, lead us, point us towards God the Father, who through His Beloved Son our Lord Jesus Christ, showed us the way, the truth and the fullness of life and so not rob us away from the Holy Trinity and the credit for all these development and attainment we enjoy should be given to the presence of the Holy Spirit. 

Let us continue to be God-fearing persons, families, communities, for in doing so, we show to the world and the young generations that our FAITH IN GOD is indeed the source of our strength in battlefields with our greatest enemy-OURSELVES, in our sometimes stained, selfish, arrogant, dominating ways of addressing, dealing and relating with everyone and everything. Thank God we are experiencing for sure great involvements in serving our communities in various areas of concerns.

As the Extraordinary Year of Mercy comes to its end on the 20th of this month, it doesn’t matter whatever is our take on the meaning and effects of this great year declared by our beloved Pope Francis for our particular time, and however we lived this year of mercy, graces upon graces and blessings upon blessings, seen and unseen, noticed and unnoticed, recognized or not, are being poured out abundantly in so many ways through thick and thin of our personal and community lives. We ought to give thanks to our God for everything we are and we have because truly his ocean of mercy and forgiveness always give, us to say the least, the second chance to live as his disciples and apostles, a blessed life.


To Him be the glory forever.



Fr. Joel, MF
