The Lord Bless You and Keep You

The Lord bless you and keep you,
The Lord lift His countenance upon you,
And give you peace, and give you peace,
The Lord make His face to shine upon you,
And be gracious unto you, be gracious,
The Lord be gracious, gracious unto you.
Amen.

Danny Boy on Piano

This is an Irish folk song, I specially love the Piano (blues) cover.

The lyrics goes like this, it’s quite a sad story as it is.

Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
The summer’s gone, and all the flow’rs are dying
‘Tis you, ’tis you must go and I must bide.

But come ye back when summer’s in the meadow
Or when the valley’s hushed and white with snow
‘Tis I’ll be here in sunshine or in shadow
Oh, Danny boy, oh, Danny boy, I love you so.

And if you come, and all the flowers are dying
If I am dead, as dead I well may be
I pray you’ll find the place where I am lying
And kneel and say an “Ave” there for me.

And I shall hear, though soft you tread above me
And all my grave will warm and sweeter be
If you’ll not fail to tell me that you love me
And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me.

Jesus is the reason for the season

The Nativity

The Nativity

I stumbled on an email that was shared to me last Dec 19, 2011. I feel I need to share it again.

Jesus is Better than Santa
Santa lives at the North Pole.
JESUS is everywhere.
Santa rides in a sleigh
JESUS rides on the wind and walks on the water.
Santa comes but once a year
JESUS is an ever present help.
Santa fills your stockings with goodies
JESUS supplies all your needs.
Santa comes down your chimney uninvited
JESUS stands at your door and knocks.. and then enters your heart.
You have to stand in line to see Santa
JESUS is as close as the mention of His name.
Santa lets you sit on his lap
JESUS lets you rest in His arms.
Santa doesn’t know your name, all he can say is “Hi little boy or girl,
What’s your name?”
JESUS knew our name before we did. Not only does He know our name,
He knows our address too. He knows our history and future
and He even knows how many hairs are on our heads.
Santa has a belly like a bowl full of jelly
JESUS has a heart full of love.
All Santa can offer is HO HO HO
JESUS offers health, help and hope.
Santa says “You better not cry”
JESUS says “Cast all your cares on me for I care for you.
Santa’s little helpers make toys
JESUS makes new life, mends wounded hearts, repairs broken homes
and builds mansions.
Santa may make you chuckle but
JESUS gives you joy that is your strength.
While Santa puts gifts under your tree
JESUS became our gift and died on the tree.
It’s obvious there is really no comparison.
We need to remember WHO Christmas is all about.
We need to put Christ back in Christmas.
Jesus is still the reason for the season.

May the Lord Bless and Watch over you and your
loved ones this Christmas 2013
And may He prosper and bless the work of
your hands in the New Year 2014.

We Carry The Saving Cross

I can still remember this song way back during the World Youth Day that was held in Manila in 1995. I took a few days off from work to participate.

The Way of the Cross

Refrain
We carry the saving cross through
The roads of the world.
Through the alleys of poverty and misery.
Marching to a dawning day to freedom and victory,
To God’s life and endless glory.

I
Christ, bread of life, the self-giving Lord of all
He leads the way of the cross.
(ref)
Ii
Christ, sent by God, obedient to the father’s will
He leads the way of the cross.
(ref)
Iii
Christ truth and life, condemned by false hood
He leads the way of the cross.
(ref)
Iv
Christ, of the poor, condemned through innocent
He leads the way of the cross.
(ref)
V
Christ, redeemer, crowned with piercing thorns
He leads the way of the cross.
(ref)
Vi
Christ, victor through the saving cross
He leads the way of the cross.
(ref)

Climb no. 4 Tarak Ridge of Mt. Mariveles

September 25-26, 2010: marks my fourth climb and my first major mountain according to Pinoymountaineer.com scale of 4/9 difficulty.

Am a noob and was looking for more climbs because I did really enjoy the previous minor climbs I had, Pico de Loro, Mt. Balagbag and Mt. Batulao.  I was truly infected by the hiker’s itch as they call it, and once you got it- there’s no cure for it.  Climbs will absolutely be followed by more climbs.

On searching facebook, I got to search Julius Estrado who introduced me to Al del Barrio of the Voyagers Adventure club.

All videos courtesy of Angelo Clamor.

The list of participants in this climb are: Ricky Masangcay, Kareen Enriquez, Jeffrey Chua Manuzon, Gerard Philip So Chan, Phil Handang, Jhopay Acuna, Jomel Acuna, Eugene Rosete, Al Del Barrio, Eduardo Santiago Bedural Jr., Yan Salles, Precious Aceveda, Miho Hazama, Gem Cruz-Otico, Shane Kara Dela Cruz, Jec Soriano, Mylene Tolentino Platon, Agnes Robel, Kat Solmayor, Jon Lombs, Emj Babaran, Rodger Ignacio, Daytutos Danger, Bem Bem, Miichaeel Gapann and Lakan Bunyi.

Anima Christi

Christ icon in Taizé

Christ icon in Taizé (Photo credit: lgambett)

Soul of Christ, sanctify me
Body of Christ, heal me
Blood of Christ, drench me
Water from the side of Christ,
wash me
Passion of Christ, strengthen me

Good Jesus, hear me
In your wounds, shelter me
From turning away, keep me
From the evil one, protect me
At the hour of my death call me
Into your presence lead me,
to praise you with all your saints
forever and ever,

Amen.
