Isang Panalangin bago Pumasok sa Internet.
Diyos na makapangyarihan at walang hanggan,
na lumikha sa amin ayon sa Iyong imahen
at nagtagubiling hanapin
ang lahat ng mabuti, totoo, at maganda,
lalo na sa banal na persona
ng Bugtong Mong Anak, ang aming Panginoong Hesukristo,
nagsusumamo kami na Iyong tulungan,
sa pamamagitan ni San Isidro ng Seville,
sa aming mga paglalakbay sa internet
na akayin lamang ang aming mga kamay at mata
sa nakalulugod sa Iyo
at pakitunguhan nang may habag at tiyaga
ang lahat ng kaluluwang makikilala.
Sa pamamagitan ni Kristong aming Panginoon.

Surfing the Internet on the speed of 3 Mbps without interruptions from the Internet provider is already considered a blessing in this small country we called Philippines.Internet surfing here is usually interrupted due to a lot of reason that the Telephone companies will give you. You will be blessed if your connection will not be interrupted by slow connection or lost connection. Yes, even when you are in the cities. it is quite surprising yo know that from the latest report that we still strive to use the Internet even if we are the lowest in the Asia in Internet connection. it is most surprising to know that our official do not know it, thanks to the latest survey report. I have the inkling of the same even before but have no data to support such claim. One of the senators I heard will investigate the said situation, I just hope that Internet surfing will improve even without the senate inquiry as immediately as possible.
Why ask for a better speed? you can do Facebook with the present speed. yes, you can accessed information through the present speed but to cover as much field in your research to your inquiry will do a lot of help if you are in better speed, the same principles applies to the traffic we are experiencing. We can cover more fields or information if we have a speedy Internet connection. uploading and unloading materials especially of video will save a lot of time and more productive time will be used in the business, work and personal level.
What does it reflect as a Nation? Wow, that is a big question. Stepping on this issue will also give us an edge as a nation. No wonder we always lagged behind our Asian neighbors. look at the chart and it will surely freaked you out compared to other nation such as Singapore.
Practically, what can I not understand is that why we lagged behind. Can you swallow the truth that we are behind Laos and Myanmar. Do we not have the right materials used in Internet connections?, Do we not afford the stiff prized of the high speed Internet connection? Do telcos overcharged us in our bill? Do telcos controls on how speed we will be using here in our country? Does National Telecommunication Company does not want us to have a high speed Internet connection. Do some politicians squeezing some money to be able to install a high speed Internet connection. or simply Some officials do not know the importance of such state of the art technology. What is really behind this story? I hope there will be some reasonable Filipinos who will find some answers on this issue and maybe some solutions to make our internet speed at least to 10 Mbps.

The Catholic Church has lost the war on Reproductive Health (RH) Law today in the Philippine situation. The Supreme Court had ruled out that the RH law is constitutional except some provisions that were struck out.
Most of the provisions were struck down concern more on religious liberty rather than on the protection of life nor on the artificial birth control.
Personally, I am not surprise of the outcome of the decision due to the fact that we have have really failed to educate the faithful concerning this matter.
We could no longer do anything about the past, we have to open a new chapter in our quest of protecting life and to create a more effective program for family and life ministry.
What is more important is that we fight a legal battle on this issue, though we may not won this court battle, it has teached us a tremendous lesson that we have to learn also how the world around us operates so that we can addressed the matter in the language that world understands.
Did all our prayers useless? Did our effort become has come to nothing? Absolutely no, that is the reason we pray, and we know that not all our prayers are answered, it does not also mean that we pray for the wrong intentions. God has other reasons. What is clear is that our prayer has made us more resolute in our advocacy for the dignity of human person, the defence for human life and holiness of family.

There is a big difference of improvement so far in the internet speed here in the Philippines since it became available to us, though we are below compare to our neighboring Asian countries. An individual could have a faster access to internet depending on one's financial capacity. However, whatever is your data plan, surely you will experience some slower pace as summer begins. Why? More people especially children will be using the internet highways. So do not freak out.
I suggest that make your internet time during the early morning rather than evening.
You would like to see if your solemnizing priest/minister/rabbi/imam/judge has a marriage licence? You forgot your marriage license number. You can check it up on the internet on this address http://census.gov.ph/. Above is mine since the national statistic office decided to computerized the solemnizing officer information system and open it to public.

For decades the Church was been accused of protecting abusive priests. We could not deny that there are few. There is no evidence presented whatsoever that the church has ever protected any abuser priest.It should be noted also that the Catholic Church is the only institution who is making a lot of effort concerning this matter. What is clear today through the creation of the Episcopal Commission for the Protection of the Minors is one of the tangible and organized way of dealing this matter.

Looking for the contact number whether of email or phone of Mamerto Pingol Metal Craft manufacturing because I would like to inquire on the Tenebrae hearse hoping to find other contact number because the number I have is unreachable. I have sent also an email but no response. I am contemplating on whether to buy from them if I can afford their prize. On searching I noticed that yellow pages is in the net. Thank God. It was been a long time to get a copy of yellow pages from PLDT but they usually do not have stocks as their office usually responded concerning this matter even on the month of January. It is really nice to see that more people are posting in the net for a wide range of information.

Reflecting on one of our religious practices during Lenten season is the so called, Visita Iglesia as commonly known or Lakbay Dasal as some named it or Parokyang Estasyon or Parish Station as not to confused with the term Visita Iglesia that is first used during the Holy Thursday evening visits to the blessed Sacraments being adored in all Catholic Churches. Some websites have offered a virtual tours to some known and historic Churches. On the same way on my part, it has come to my reflection why not find a software that can do that and present the Churches of Laguna. Well, we have a lot of plans but there is no time to accomplish so I started with the parish I am assigned to, St. Martin de Porres. Here is the St. Martin de Porres Parish Church in 360.

Prayer of oversees contract workers and their families.
We have talk much about the situations, plight and struggles of migrant workers for almost eternity. It is time to start something and I believe that the first step is to pray. Here is the prayer for such intention especially that we will celebrate the first Sunday of Lent which we dedicate for the migrants and their families. Surely, God will show us the way of other programs and activities that might transpire as we go on to assist the families of the migrant workers.
This prayer was born through the coordinated effort of the following persons while I was assigned in St. Augustine Parish, Bay, Laguna, Philippines:
Archie Santos, Rodolfo & Yollie Billate, Zena Bernardo, Milagros S. Castillo, Domeng & Aurea Balmes, Eliseo & Krischelle Naval, Favy & Janet Maghirang, Myla Marie S. Castillo, and Rev. Fr Jessie G. Somosierra Jr.
