Sanctify The Day: Liturgy of The Hours

It’s been a  while since I mentioned a spiritual book to read, but today I’m going to share with you two!   Almost a year ago, while I was reading, a phrase came across the page that I was not aware of.  The author mentioned a prayer of the Church– The Liturgy of the Hours.  I had no idea what it was, or how to pray it but I was deeply intrigued.  After a few clicks of my fingers to Google, I found Divine Office.org and I haven’t looked back since. (This is not so much for those...

Repenting Like Pharaoh?

Repenting Like Pharaoh?

I’ve been on an Exodus kick these past few days at home. I think there is so much to learn from all the Books of the Bible, but I must admit that Exodus has to be my favorite book.    There are several passages that catches my eyes, but now this one struck me: Then Pharaoh sent for Moses and Aaron and said to them, “I have sinned this time! The LORD is the just one, and I and my people are the ones at fault. (‭Exodus‬ ‭9‬:‭27‬ NABRE)   Pharaoh has seen what God can do so far and seeing his people suffering and...

Testing the limits of Patience

Testing the limits of Patience

  A few weeks ago, a priest whom I usually go to confession with told me the story about  being sent into the world after being ordained. You see, he is from India and the last thing that he wanted to do was go to America. It seems like our reputation preceded us! But God had a different plan for him. He was called to America, and like any good pastor, he goes where he is needed. But before he left his home, he gave so many reasons why he was not the right one for this mission. As he was giving his reasons, his story reminded...

Over A Cliff

Over A Cliff

Scandal fans know that Olivia Pope’s team will follow her in any direction that she would lead.  If they object to it, they raise their concerns, but like good friends, they fall in line because they believe in her vision.  In light of Christianity, are you willing to go over a cliff?   Being a disciple of Christ, we were never meant to just “fall in line” with what’s going on in the world.  Our actions must always profess truth and speak of truth.  If we turn for one moment away from this...

Spiritual Reading: The Imitation of Christ

Spiritual Reading: The Imitation of Christ

I have a lot of Spiritual books on my reading list.  Many of them that I have read already, and some that I am itching to get through.  Each one of these books holds a treasure to change who I am, and lessons to living life to the fullest in the realist way.  While I could have started with anyone of those books, I decided to start with a book that I am currently reading: The Imitation of Christ. The Imitation of Christ has to be one of the most widely read devotional over 500 years.  Yup–I said it right, 500 years!...

The Importance of Reading Spiritual Books

The Importance of Reading Spiritual Books

The first thing I was going to do was dive right into my spiritual reading list. But it dawned on me that I have to backtrack for just a moment and discuss the importance of spiritual reading.      Did you ever have that good friend that you can always go to for advice? Or when you weren’t even in need of advice, they share their life’s story and journey with you? They tell you what they went through, how they did it, and who helped them along the way. Spiritual reading is like that. You see, when we pray, we talk...

Truth, Freedom, and Relativism

Truth, Freedom, and Relativism

In New York City we have veins of subway lines and bus routes that helps you get to where you’re going. While riding on the train or bus, you’re not thinking about the complex system, you are focused on where you have to get and if you’re running late. But given the chance to freely choose a destination with no time constraints or obligations, your mind begins to see the complete picture of the subway system. Life is very much like this. While you’re in the grind, you are really not as aware of your...

Remembering Those Before Us

I have so many favorite prayers that I like to pray, or thanks to iTunes, sing to.  One of my favorite ones is the Litany of Saints?  What is so great about the Litany of Saints.  Well, it’s calling on all the Saints to pray for us. Have you met someone who is going through some problems in life (or maybe you are that person).  What is the first thing that we usually say to them, “I’ll pray for you.”  Well, this is like that.   One of my favorite prayers is the Litany of the Saints....

Making Sacrifices as One

Things in my home is starting to get back to normal.  I have been quiet for the past two weeks because my household has been sick.  It seems like one after another, we’re coming down with something (a cold) and we’re out of commission.  Homeschool had to pause for a week, but I thank God everyday that we’re a head and not behind. I am also very thankful that the children are feeling well enough to continue Monday. My household coming down with a cold that required multiple doctor visits (and ended with one...

Year End Reflection 2014

First of all, I hope everyone had a Very Merry Christmas!  Not only do I hope you got everything you needed, but I hope you were able to celebrate the true meaning of the Christmas season with your family and loved ones. As 2014 comes in to a close, I have plenty of time to think and reflect about where I am headed, what my plans were for this year, and how well did I meet them. In the beginning of this year, I had some very bold plans, not just for online, but for offline as well.  I hoped to have more exposure, and do far more...
