Why There Is A God.

Ninoy Aquino said that once upon a not so distant past, he was imprisoned on a solitary confinement for 7 years and 7 months.  It was that length of time alone that he learned what loneliness meant.  It was when he was battling with his mind why he had to undergo such an undeserved suffering that he realized that there must be a God Who would reward him later for enduring that very suffering. And he made a pact with the Almighty that should he get out of his cell, he would declare into the world that there is a God.

He did!

And he was given 3 wonderful years with his family, the very family who would be a nation’s strength after he was killed.

Mommy called this afternoon. She was physically exhausted. Daddy was rushed again to the hospital.  His blood pressure dropped to 70. (:

Why It Is Good To Be A Roman Catholic!

For Sunday Mass service, the Church doors do not close on the members even if the members are pathetically  late.

The Communion host is free.

The collection is optional.

The priests give free scoops of gossips and intrigues  when they run out of ideas to say for their sermon.

The children can kiss the hands of the priest right after mass.  And the old ladies, too.

The priests can be summoned to perform the Anoiniting of the Sick even at the wee hours of the morning.

The priests are intelligently handsome.  The seminaries had screened them well for our benefit.

We have a long line of popes from Peter.  Makes one feel the Church is formidable against any invasion.

We have saints who lived exemplary lives.  All we have to do is copy.

We have a Mother immaculate and pure. Where else could we have one? And she has a garden full of flowers.

Hey Ninoy!

Hey Ninoy!

Can you see us now?

You must be smiling down upon us!

Taken a long time coming,

but we did it!

Hey genius!

You did not foresee it, huh!,

in all your intelligence and great foresight,

That your wife and your son will carry on the torch that you had lit!

Hey martyr!

Now you know that you did not die in vain.

You must be grinning down upon us.

Took us a long time coming,

but we did it again.
