Life is worth living if we know that we are loved and special.
Life is beautiful if you know how to relax. Life is wonderful if you know how to appreciate nature.
Life is meaningful if you learn how to value friendship.
Life is full of surprises if you allow yourself to venture to the unknown places. Nickstep4/2008

Just come back from three days trip together with 40 of us priests from San Paul Collegio Rome, to the North of Italy. It was a very enriching and wonderful experience to be on top of the mountain where it was full of snow. The people are very simple and the whether was so good. I just discovered that when we in touch with nature, we feel so close to God. I thank God for that wonderful experience to be with the simple village people in Alberado.

Don't let your past sins or your past life disturb you. Remember how the saints were before their conversion. Don't fret about tomorrow. You are simply here and now with the Lord. He it is who calls you. And you need know nothing else.

A man came home from work late, tired and irritated, to find his
5-year old son waiting for him at the door.
SON: "Daddy, may I ask you a question?"
DAD: "Yeah sure, what is it?" replied the man.
SON: "Daddy, how much do you make an hour?"
DAD: "That's none of your business. Why do you ask such a thing?" the man said angrily.
SON: "I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an
DAD: "If you must know, I make $100 an hour."
SON: "Oh," the little boy replied, with his head down.
SON: "Daddy, may I please borrow $50?"
The father was furious, "If the only reason you asked that is so you
can borrow some money to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, then
you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed. Think about
why you are being so selfish. I work hard everyday for such this
The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door.
The man sat down and started to get even angrier about the little
boy's questions.. How dare he ask such questions only to get some
After about an hour or so, the man had calmed down, and started to
think: Maybe there was something he really needed to buy with that
Rs.50 and he really didn't ask for money very often. The man went to
the door of the little boy's room and opened the door.
"Are you asleep, son?" He asked.
"No daddy, I'm awake," replied the boy.
"I've been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier" said the man.
"It's been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you.. Here's the
$50 you asked for."
The little boy sat straight up, smiling. "Oh, thank you daddy!" He yelled.
Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled out some crumpled up bills.
The man saw that the boy already had money, started to get angry
again. The little boy slowly counted out his money, and then looked up
at his father.
"Why do you want more money if you already have some?" the father
"Because I didn't have enough, but now I do," the little boy replied.
"Daddy, I have $100 now. Can I buy an hour of your time?
Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with
The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little son, and he
begged for his forgiveness..
It's just a short reminder to all of you working so hard in life. We
should not let time slip through our fingers without having spent some
time with those who really matter to us, those close to our hearts.
Do remember to share that $100 worth of your time with someone you love.
If we die tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily
replace us in a matter of days.
But the family we leave behind will feel the loss for the
rest of their lives. And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more
into work than to our family.

You and I, we are the Church, no? We have to share with our people. Suffering today is because people are hoarding, not giving, not sharing.
Jesus made it very clear. Whatever you do to the least of my brethren, you do it to me.
Give a glass of water, you give it to me. Receive a little
child, you receive me. Mother Teresa

Today I have learned
That life is full of surprises.
Today I have learned
that you can change the life of a person
by your caring and kind examples.
Today I have learned
that you can change the life of the person
whom you do not know within five minutes with smile and kind conversations.

I Asked God....
I asked God to take away my pain.
God said, No.
It is not for me to take away, but for you to give it up.
