Today is the Feast of St. Mary Magdalene, Apostle to the Apostles. One of the most loyal followers of our Lord, she stood by the foot of the cross at Calvary and it was to her whom the Risen Christ first committed the news of the Resurrection.
O St. Mary Magdalene, First Proclaimer of the Resurrection, pray for us. 🙏
About to throw away an old seashell necklace from Boracay but then I decided to clean it up so I can turn it in to a rosary. Hopefully I can complete it before October. 🙏🐚
The image of Our Lady of Lourdes we gave to Nanay so that Mama Mary would be closer to her since she got very ill and often hospitalized.
Now that Nanay has passed away, this image serves as a remembrance of her. Every time I gaze upon Mama Mary, I always remember Nanay and how her condition led us all closer to God.
Thank you for watching over Nanay, Mama Mary! Salamat, Maria! ❤️
Happy #ThrowbackThursday Birthday to my twin, @fmalopez! ❤️ Here’s our very first photo together in the library and I don’t even know why we’re here! Hahaha! 😂 I miss you! (at UST Miguel de Benavides Library)
Hope and pray that everyone is safe and sound. Good night, friends! May we always find light in the Lord through Mary.
Our neighbor’s Mango Tree broke and fell in front our gate! Don’t come out, friends! Stay safe indoors! #GlendaPH

Pray for us who have recourse to thee!

ORATIO IMERATA FOR DELIVERANCE FROM CALAMITIES
Almighty Father, we raise our hearts to You in gratitude for the wonders of creation of which we are part, for Your providence in sustaining us in our needs, and for Your wisdom that guides the course of the universe.
We acknowledge our sins against You and the rest of creation. We have not been good stewards of Nature. We have confused Your command to subdue the earth. The environment is made to suffer our wrongdoing, and now we reap the harvest of our abuse and indifference.
Typhoons, heavy rains and floods occur in increasing number and intensity. We turn to You, our loving Father, and beg forgiveness for our sins. We ask that we, our loved ones and our hard earned possessions be spared from the threat of calamities, natural and man-made.
We beseech You to inspire us all to grow into responsible stewards of Your creation, and generous neighbors to those in need.
Hail Mary, our mother. We implore your intercession in our prayers. Please whisper our petitions to your son, our Lord Jesus, as he rests in your most loving arms. May your protective mantle of love shelter us now until the hour of our death. We will forever thank you, Mama Mary. Amen.
Welcome to our home, St. Michael of Monte Gargano! St. Michael, the Archangel, protect us! 🙏
