To live with a goal and purpose, is to live fully

November 1, 2012 ·  By Fr. Shay Cullen

We are human because we can think, Can choose the good reject the bad, Know the difference between right and wrong, We can love others unselfishly we can sing a song, Write a poem, Can be happy and be sad.   To live a life of value is to have a conscience clean Follow it […]


Kahirapan Lumayo Ka! (Poverty Keep Away!)

May 11, 2011 ·  By Joan

By: Joan I Bata pa lamang marami ng karanasan, sa murang edad natutong palaboy laboy, walang magulang na nag-aaruga, humahanap ng karamay na tunay na makauunawa sa aming problema. Hanggang sa walang matirahan at nakuha pa ang aming pinaka- iingatang dangal, sino bang tutulong sa amin, karanasan, kahirapan, bakit laging naririyan ka. At a tender […]



May 11, 2011 ·  By Shay Cullen

By: Fr. Shay Cullen Hovel on the hill. The mud packed floor, the hovel on the hill. Walls of cardboard sheltered the still life form. A Little child in a paper dress and cotton wool stopping up the nose as if to halt the sobbing, stem the flow of pain that traced it’s path with […]


Pangarap (Dreams)

May 11, 2011 ·  By Aira Grace

By: Aira Grace I Pasan ko ang mundo na aking tahanan hapdi at sakit ang laging damdam bigat at baho ang aking yakap ayaw umalis ayaw akong lubayan. My yoke is the world where I live Pain and ache is what I always feel Burden and foul odor I embrace Keep on clinging to me. […]


Sack of Bones

May 11, 2011 · 

A sack of body parts A headless man, old they said. Harmless to the world, many more lay scattered in the shrubs, women clutching babies, little child in her rubber boots, blond hair on blood stained jacket, fallen where she fled. Screams of terror, silenced by the knife, or one shot to the head. Precious […]


The Anointing

May 11, 2011 ·  By Kate

By: “Kate” Silence, a dog barks in the distance Heavy Hearted footsteps A light dawn breeze brushes tear stained faces Jars of perfumed oils rattle gently under veils of black Pale faces…sunken eyes So little sleep, and many tears Is it a dream…A nightmare No…who will move away the stone? Garden quiet, not a sound […]


The Holy One

May 11, 2011 ·  By Bill Drayton

By: Bill Drayton   Holy One, You have taken the scales from my eyes, and unstopped my ears, and have broken my stubborn heart, so that i can hear and see and receive the gift of Your peace. Holy One, You have poured your joy into my innermost being, melting the dark despair within and […]


The Magical Tree

May 11, 2011 ·  By Vera Reynolds

By Vera Reynolds I touched the tree And it said to me Come here my child Stop running wild So I sat beneath the tree And it humbly said to me Sing me a song and make me smile So I sang for a while I hugged the tree And it said to me Thanks […]


The Veteran

May 11, 2011 · 

  The one who sees the pain and futility of it all. Who knows that war is hell for the poor, the grunts those who cannot understand but only do and die. The ones who feel the pain as youth, torn apart by the shrapnel and the greed of those to total power aspire, over […]


Today – There are calling

May 11, 2011 · 

  Strangers crossing in the night Someone’s looking for their delight Winning comes to nothing and you know it’s true Who will search for something that’s not in you Today I can hear them calling in my sleep I can hear them calling in my sleep Would you turn a blind eye If this was […]
