  • Pentecost Sunday: The Descent of the Holy Spirit and Birth of the Church
    When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled, they were all in one place together. And suddenly there came from the sky a noise like a strong driving wind, and it filled the entire house in which they were. Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire, which parted and came to rest on each […]

Good morning po! My niece Madz (Madeleine Johanna Abraham) was so happy when you mentioned Blessed Alvaro in your meditation of March 19. She has a deep devotion to him. She even distributes the soft copy of his prayer card to her classmates & friends. Thanks a lot po!


Good evening po! I forgot to tell you that Madz felt happier when you stated that you and Blessed Alvaro were together in Rome. And she finds it cool that you’re a chemist 🙂 Chemistry was her favorite subject in highschool & college 🙂


Good evening po! It’s the high school classmate of Madz who forwarded to her the link to the Corona retreat. And Madz finds it cool that you’re a chemist 🙂 Chemistry was her favorite subject in highschool & college 🙂


Sorry po for the duplication in the message because I thought the 1st was not sent. When I tried sending it, there was a remark that it had the same content as the previous message so I revised it & sent another one.


Thank you for this wonderful meditations. I have read many articles that make me more closer to God and learned many ways how to communicate to ou Lord.


Thank you, Fr. Jim
Your meditations gave me and my friends light, direction and comfort.
