Parish Priest's Lenten Message
Dear parishioners, pilgrims and devotees of St. Peregrine,
Once again, we are in the season of Lent, a 40-days preparation for Easter. Every Lenten season, we are accompanied by the prophet Joel for his reminders “rend your hearts, not your garments, & return to the Lord, your God” (Joel 2:13). Rending our hearts means going through the process of repentance & conversion & returning to the Lord connotes turning away from sin and be faithful to the Gospel such as we reminded during the imposition of ashes on our foreheads. By this yearly reminder for all of us, let us devote ourselves through prayer, fasting & almsgiving which the Holy Father Francis called it a better medicine of the truth.
By praying, we are reminded of God’s direction over our lives. God will provide wisdom that we do not have to worry about our next step or about tomorrow because we know who guides our way.
By fasting, we abstain from something to focus our spiritual growth. We humbly deny something of the flesh to glorify God & to ourselves that we are serious about our relationship with Him. Fasting is not intended to punish our flesh but to focus on God.
By almsgiving, we are asked to donate money or goods to the poor and the needy and to perform other acts of charity. As CCC puts it, a work of justice pleasing to God (CCC #2462). We can also offer charity through offering our time, talent and treasure for needy individuals & organizations during lent & throughout the year.
By devoting ourselves through these 3 pillars of Lenten practices, let us work on purifying ourselves & our faith and engage on penance wholeheartedly.

SEVEN HOLY FOUNDERS
About the year 1240, while the struggle between Emperor Frederick II and the Apostolic See left Italian cities torn by rival factions, seven Florentine merchants decided to retire in solitude to live a common life marked by penance and prayer. They were already member of a lay group called Servants of Mary and were noted for their special devotion to Our Lady, and for a close adherence to the gospel ideal of fraternal love and service to one another and to others specially the poor and the sick.
Consequently, they put aside their commercial activities, left their homes and distributed their personal possessions among the churches and the poor. The gray cloth commonly worn by penitents became their regular dress…
I have been always chasing my dreams since I started to learn how to dream. As much as possible, I comply with what the world is asking me. I'm so aggressive in meeting my goals in life which if not attained, I end up disappointed. I even pressure myself of things...
God did not set the specific date when He will be coming back, but that doesn't mean that He is not coming back. The question is, when He comes back, are we already prepared? If how we lived our life now doesn't align with what God wants you to do, are we willing to...
Ano ba ang ating naiisip kapag mababanggit anf salitang templo? Marahil ay kaagag-agad pumapasok sa ating isipang ang malaking gusali na yari sa bato at semento kung saan natitipon ang sambayanang nagdarasal at sumasamba. Iyan ang limitadong pagkakaunawa natin sa...
Sa tuwing siya'y nalulumbay, nananalangin siya sa Panginoon na pawiin ang lumbay. Sa tuwing siya'y may nais mangyari, nananalangin siya sa Panginoon na mangyari nawa ang kanyang nais. Sa tuwing siya'y may kailangan nananalangin siya sa Panginoon na pagkalooban siya...
