I texted Fr. Lovell early this morning to greet him on his 9th priestly anniversary ordination. Wow, we haven’t seen each other since I attended his first Thanksgiving mass after his ordination. That was nine years ago too. He is just too busy juggling between his masteral studies, office work and his priestly ministry. Yeah, he said that we haven’t seen each other for a long time. Every time he presides over special masses, I always get a text that he is offering his mass for the family too. So glad to have a prayer warrior.

It is hard to be a priest. They are humans like us. There is that big responsibility they carry on their shoulders. Much as we need prayers, they need them more.

I found this picture of us together during his ordination nine years ago.

This is my 126th read on the Goodreads Reading Challenge this year.

One of the best I’ve read so far and I am giving it ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐. I am in a quandary to review this book though because it could be classified as inspirational religious fiction or a romantic adventure. There are so many biblical quotes in every chapter. They are not preachy though.

REDEEMING LOVE by Francine Rivers. A long time ago, I read two of her books, I could not even remember their titles now. Those horrible and gut-wrenching scenes that make you stop for a while, wipe a tear or two then turn the pages. I’ve read it overnight.

What a laughable scenario, if not really disgusting. In 118 years, past presidents have the highest country debt pegged at 6.1 trillion in 2016 while duterte accomplished more than double that in five years that he is in office. We now have a staggering 13.7 trillion debt under his administration according to reports. Maybe even Nate’s great grandkids in the future will still have to pay for it. If you ask me, these last five years were the worst time in our history. I wish the ICC would hurry in its investigation of the human rights violation by the present administration.

Joeam, one of my friends at Facebook asks, “What part of due process is in killing someone? Duterte started the idea that cops should kill, dela Rosa implemented it, a whole government enabled it and media reported the deaths as if, that’s the way we do it here.”

There you go, cops got a corresponding amount for every head they gun down. Gosh, it is as if one life is not important. We never heard them arrest the drug lords. As we say in Tagalog, “kapit sila sa patalim”.

Today is another pink Wednesday. Every Wednesday and Saturday, you see everything in your newsfeed in pink. As I have said before, it is all voluntary from concerned citizens all over the land, even most Filipinos living abroad who wants democracy back.

Here is my profile photo. I am voting for VP LENI ROBREDO.
