Liceo Teacher Recollection

After the meeting and taking Lunch at Bel Air, Cabuyao, Laguna, I immediately hurried back to the parish to prepare myself for the teacher's recollection of the Liceo De Bay. My Laptop is having some problem in loading immediately. Maybe because of too many programs installed therein or maybe because it is already outdated. It was been more than four years since them I bought it . However, I tried to make use of it for the said recollection.

I have decided to give them the summary of the Sacramentum Caritatis, since it is their care that the students could be properly instructed on the importance of the sacraments. Sacramentum Caritatis is an apostolic exhortation not to make new law on liturgy but a new liturgical movement based on the present liturgical laws with emphasis on the proper celebration because it is a potent instrument of evangelization. Sacraments as signs, especially the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist which is celebrated if not everyday, every week. It's impact on the faith and life of the people is clearly manifested if only it is properly celebrated. Though, the importance of the liturgical rite as the ars celebrandi is emphasized, it is not to deviate oneself to the very meaning of the celebration which is the total salvation of mankind.

since this is the first time that I have given a recollection of this sort to Liceo teacher specifically on this Parish, it is quite to note some observation.
1. Documents of the Church is not been a part of the ongoing updating of the teachers. there is a minimum knowledge of the documents of the church and its impact on everyday living.
2. Review of some basic principles of Christian life is needed. Though religion teachers have some knowledge about the faith, it seems that other teachers of other field have little knowledge. It seems that they have forgotten that they are teaching in a Catholic, a sectarian institution which differ them from other schools. Excellence not only on mundane knowledge but also of the faith is a paramount need.
3. Issues and tachings of the Church in family is the number one thing they are looking for. More on practical side based on the document of the Church and through the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
