Is it Possible to Have Two Names and Two Birthdays?

 Subscribe in a reader

At the begging it sounds confusing, but later on it became amusing. This is my experience of having two name with two birthdays. I grew up knowing that my name is FLORDELUNA. When I was in college, as our school registrar required us to submit our birth certificate it was found out that my  name is FLODELUNA. Since childhood up to first year college I celebrated my birthday every May 23. When I saw my birth certificate, my birth date is May 24. Which is which?  Either of the two. Both are important to me.

Today, I embrace this two names. Flordeluna, the flower of the moon. Flodeluna, the simple flower on earth. I celebrated these two dates. A two day birthday celebration. Wow! Fantastic! I honor the Holy Spirit as my guide in this two days celebration. I offer Holy Mass and a novena to the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit gives the joy in my life. 

Tomorrow and the following day ( May 23 & 24 is another joyful days of celebration of the gift of life God has given unto me. Two days of celebrating the goodness and the love of God and the inspiration of the Holy Spirit in my life. He is guide, and my protector. Thank you Holy Spirit!

Culture from Agriculture

 Subscribe in ader

Do you know where this word culture comes from? One boy responded, it came from the mountain! Really! Mountain? One anthropologist said, that the word culture derived from the word agriculture. Hey hey! Correct! You taker of a plants in a certain conditions to the other. A plant from the plot to the pot. You cultured it .It transformed from nature to human resource.

Culture involves people, in different places with different lifestyle, beliefs, ideas , values and practices.
Is there superior and inferior cultures? None! Cultures emerged from the experiences of people in particular place and time. There is no point also of comparison, but there is call to respect each others culture.

A Challenge to be with the Young

2014 CatecheticalCongress WEBBANNER

This is the  logo of the 24th Catechetical Congress and Seminar Workshop organized by the Communication Foundation for Asia . And this year's congress focuses on the New Evangelization.  What is new? The message remains the same : THE PROCLAMATION OF THE PERSON JESUS CHRIST. But the culture of the people 30 years ago may be different from our present generation. And to be with this young generation is quite challenging especially  in bringing the message of salvation to them. There is call to understand their culture and at same discover a new way, and  new methods  of introducing Jesus that would be fitting to them.

I am so blessed together with our school chaplain Fr. Rolando Mandreza and Richard Escobido, we are all from the Holy Cross of Davao College attended this Seminar Workshop.

We have good pool of speakers Sr. Gemma Victorino, PDDM, PhD who discussed about biblical grounding. Fr. Ben Alforque, MSC the Director of CRC,  Dean Rolando Tolentino of the University of the Philippines and Estella Garcia who is a pioneered BEC organizer.
