Prayer For Artists

Prayer for Artists
Blessed John Paul, as a man with many personal artistic gifts, you understood the artists heart.  In your letter to artists, you involved all artist to feel themselves united in a particular way to the Father’s creativity.  You challenged artists to see their gifts as signs of a creative vocation that has been entrusted to them.  May all artists find joy in putting their creative gifts at the service of their neighbor in expressing the wonder and mystery of God, present even in the darkest aspects of human experience.  May the face of Christ, the icon that makes visible the beauty and mercy of God, inspire the creative work of all  people of faith.  Amen.

War: Swearing in Faith and Loyalty

War movies usually depict the value of loyalty and faith.


1. It embodies how troop members protect and support each other.

The leader of a fighting force must be very strong and should mark a will of martyrdom for the goal/cause he stands for. No wealth can ever buy his loyalty, but his oath only to God, for his men, and to the mission's goal.

The members of the troop must treat each other like one's very own blood. More than that, to work on which they were sent for by the master. These squires will be to continue the task anointed them, for the people.

War pictures teach profound lessons in life. It is not only about the use of weapons, a taste of brutality, cannibalism, or crucifying a soldier, but it is laying into the present time, something that happened in the past.

War films connote history, culture, and evolution. It proves how men fight for territories and how they could become saints or sinners. Men could be self-serving and greedy, or they could be respectable lea…

One Sweet Rain

Rain is my teardrop from sky’s glass castles From heaven it comes to your hands, it slides It lets you seek white clouds and up the sky Brush lashes, wipe eyes, each time you cry
Rain reminds you of a Great God, who cares It lets you feel my love, it whispers nigh How I adore, I keep your every kiss In my heart, when it rains, our love’s a bliss!
Rain, drops in the fields in time of sorrow Fill hearts with hope now and tomorrow Wash white as snow, tender, pure and fragrant The angels chant in the drum strings of rain

Rainbows form; magenta, pink, and blue Connecting valleys, cliffs, and mountains Splatter in river, shred showers of falls A baptism sudden in the dessert, calls
Rain, rain, let cradle your tired day I think of you, my life, in every way And when things come and seem to be unfair Let raindrops fall, your tear is mine to bear
Rain, rain I love you more, when it rains When together we’d hold like roots and lighting When together we’d hug like torrents, You and I;  one sweet rain from God's h…

For Willie from RoseVoc2

For Willie November 22, 2011
You are God given Without you, I wouldn’t know What real love means
What is to be a mother What is to be strong How to love the rain How to gently touch dew on petals How to find joy in small things How to write letters How to kneel and pray
For me, you are a genius And you shared a lot And though your imperfections God, did the rest for you You never failed Because I have loved you All my life.
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, We pray for the living and the dead  Have mercy on us, We trust in You.

The Cemetery

Darkness paints empty spaces

Tombs white as snow,

Angels flying among the crosses

Burning candles, flames aglow.


Bones on the earth

Ivory pearls rebirth

Swinging palms to freedom,

Glowing blessed kingdom


Completely to merge

In hues of yellow-orange dusk.

The Kiss
by Gustav Klimt
(1907-1908) "Short Story on aPainting of Gustav Klimt"
by Lawrence Ferlinghetti
(1976)They are kneeling upright on a flowered bed 
  He 
    has just caught her there 
                               and holds her still 
    Her gown 
                 has slipped down 
                                           off her shoulder 
He has an urgent hunger 
                      His dark head 
                                 bends to hers 
                                            hungrily 
And the woman the woman 
    turns her tangerine lips from his 
           one hand like the head of a dead swan 
                   draped down over 
                                                his heavy neck 
                        the fingers 
                            strangely crimped 
                                         tightly together 
        her other arm doubled up 
                     against her tight breast 
            her hand a languid claw…

Silid ni Riza Flores Martinez - Borja

1. Sa Aking Silid

Ramdam ko ang pait at pagmamalupit ng panahon sa akin. Sa tuwing ako ay lilisan palabas ng aking silid, may kahalong lungkot at ligaya tarak sa aking puso. Tila ako ay binalutan ng tinik sa dibdib.

Simula noong ako ay bata pa sa pagpasok ng aking silid may kaba at takot na laging umaamba sa paligid, parang usok na lumalaki.

Si Ama ay isang kilalang tao sa lipunan. Mataas ang tingin ng mga taga-bayan sa kanya, maging ang kanyang mga kakompetensya sa San Gabriel. Sa araw araw na ginawa ng Diyos, masaya ang mga taong dumadalaw sa aming bahay na lagging may pagdiriwang na nagaganap. Mahal na mahal si ama mga taga- San Gabriel. Mahal din ni Ama si Ina… at ako. Maraming tao ang natulungan ni Ama. Mahirarap man o mayaman, walang pinipiling tulungan. Maraming krimen din ang nalutas. Maliban lamang sa kaso dito sa aming bahay. Iyan ang lihim.

Sa aking silid, pinid ang durungawan. Ang mga ala-ala ng aking nakaraan ay hindi maungkat. Ayaw kong maungkat muli ang mga ala-ala ng …

Bolpen, Three Scary Stories in Filipino

2. Bolpen

Masarap mangarap, masarap mabuhay lalo na kung ang lahat ng iyong gusto sa buhay ay natutupad. Karangyaan, kayamanan, kasikatan yan ang pangarap ng lahat… at isa doon si Rosa. Si Rosa ay simpleng manunulat, may 2 anak at 6 na taon sa trabahong ito ngunit wala pa ding nangyayari sa buhay niya. Mahirap pa rin siya…at pawing lalong humihirap.

“Pesteng buhay ‘to! Kelan ba ko aangat sa estado kong ito?” ani ni Rosa. “Lagi na lang ganito, walang gustong tumanggap ng mga isinusulat ko? E napakagaling ko naman!”

“Ano ka ba Rosa? Maging matiyaga ka lang, may awa ang Diyos. Baka di pa dumadating ang tamang oras mo,” sagot ng kaibigan niyang si Leslie. “ Nga pala may opening sa darating na Biyernes sa may Ortigas, naghahanap sila ng mga writers para sa bago nilang ilalabas na libro, pwede ka doon. Bakit di mo subukan? Eto ang numero tawagan mo..”

“O sige, mapuntahan nga yan baka yan na yung matagal ko ng hinihintay na break!,” sagot ni Rosa.

GOD's Minute: A Story from Pastor Allen

AND HE TOOK THE CHILDREN IN HIS ARMS, PUT HIS HANDS  ON THEM AND BLESSED THEM.
                                 ( MARK 10:16 *NIV )

   Dear Rose,
        We often find that children do amuse us with their explanations.  Now as you know little children come up with some amazing explanations.  So today we will take a look at a message I have received from one of our Subscriber's titled: A Child's View of the Bible." 

       It is my hope that this will give you a smile in your heart, and a laugh on your face.  After all, it is said "Laughter is the best Medicine", especially for a Saturday Morning!

                          A CHILD'S VIEW OF THE BIBLE

A child was told to write a book report on the entire Bible.
This is amazing!!. I wonder how often we take for granted that children understand what we are teaching??? Through the eyes of a child here is the Children's Bible in a Nutshell.


In the beginning, which oc…
