Mama Mary's gift... :D

This sacred image of Our Mother of Perpetual Help was reverently touched to the Original Icon in Rome. Wonderful and beautiful at first sight.

A gift to our family by the Works of the Saints Apostolate.

#PLASBAKpraydey: Wewe The (Ex-)ICPSian

Students keep telling me that whenever they google 'ICPS Malabon', they always see this...

Yes, this was me when I was in Fourth Year HS. That was roughly 8 years ago. And I always say, it is always good to return the favor to the school which nurtured you the most. ('via Blog this')

#SirBitzSHOTS: What Lies Ahead

Looking towards what lies ahead. It's been a while since we went up the belfry of Santo Domingo. And every time I remember it, all that I can say is... 'Natupad na pangarap.'

LA NAVAL 2014: A Vow Made and Fulfilled

Besamanto, Oct. 10, 2014
There are lots of reasons why I should say that my fifth La Naval is more exciting and memorable than the past four. I always mentioned in the former posts that each La Naval, though containing the same program, and focused on the same Virgin of the Holy Rosary, has a distinct character which makes it unique every year.

This year, despite the heavy rains during the novena days, crowds still poured in during the Festivities, showing their resiliency when it comes to their love for the Blessed Mother. Rain or shine, the devotees continued to visit Our Lady in her Shrine at Quezon City, to bring up to her their prayers and needs, and to thank her for answered intentions.

The vow of our forefathers was once again fulfilled in this year's festivities, and nothing stopped the Filipino in showing their devotion to her, not even the rain which poured out during the festivities.

Personally, this year was a lot more challenging for me. Though I already experienced last year the long travel from Malabon to QC and back, my ongoing battle with TB made it hard for me to go on. There was even a chance that I almost had a physical breakdown. But despite all these, I'm confident that Our Lady helped me move on and continue this little sacrifice.

True enough, Our Lady is true to her word.

LA NAVAL 2014: Some PIC-PACs
(Part 01)

As La Naval Season is upon us, here are some of the shots of the recent days:

After Our Lady was enthroned, and everything's done, the lights of the Baldachino still illuminate the dark church.
Mary, the bearer of the Light, which is Jesus, continues to share the glorious rays of God to the people
who continuously live in the darkness of sin.

On the first Besamanto for this year, Our Lady was once again taken down from her royal throne to
listen to the needs of her children. Her face is so serene, in all her royalty.
When someone approaches Our Lady, there is always hope that their prayers would certainly be answered.
In the course of time, people continued to cling to Mary's hand, asking her help in every need.
There was none that she refused.
