    1 Jul 2015 | 4:53 pm
    11 Health benefits of making love is a post from: A Filipina Mom Blogger Written by Ma. Rachel Yapchiongco as originally posted on the Philippine Online Chronicles People often link a healthy lifestyle to boring and bland food, tough workouts, and sweet-deprived life. Contrary to the common beliefs, living a healthy lifestyle is not a punishment but a reward that you can give yourself. Exercise plays an important role in promoting a healthy lifestyle. Married couples will be delighted to know that sex is considered as moderately intense exercise. Although sex is not something that can replace…

    Five parenting lessons my beloved son taught me is a post from: A Filipina Mom Blogger It’s that time of the year that I declutter my home. The library which is located in my home office is often filled with books because my family members are book lovers. As I reviewed the books on the top shelf, I screamed with delight upon discovering my son’s yearbook in Family Montessori Katipunan , his first school. I thought I had lost his yearbook after moving homes in 2007. I thought “there must be a message here”. I quickly leafed through the pages and found his handsome…

    Aging gracefully with the help of Olay’s Miracle Duo is a post from: A Filipina Mom Blogger “And the beauty of a woman, with passing years only grows!” Audrey Hepburn Turning 58 years old a few days ago was a day to celebrate. I know 58 is just number but it affirms 58 years of trials and tribulations that made me who I am today. I feel positive about my life. I enjoy pampering myself because things can get too busy with my writing commitments. I feel good and beautiful inside and out because I know I am aging gracefully. Feeling and looking beautiful starts with taking care of myself.

    My father believed in me where teachers failed to is a post from: A Filipina Mom Blogger My sewing teacher looked like she was going to burst an artery when she saw the cross-stitch pattern on my apron. The next thing I knew, the apron sat on my head. I recall the humiliation but thankfully, none of my classmates laughed. Maybe they did not want to be in my position. I was in third grade but I knew what she did was wrong. How could a teacher not tell me nicely that the original fox pattern-turned-catlike was all wrong? True, my sewing was horrible, but did she have to humiliate me? I…

  • Senate, as Impeachment Court, the higher interpreter of law

    Admin
    3 Jul 2015 | 6:57 am
    It is generally conceded that impeachment is more of a political than a legal process. However, the Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP), supposedly the official organization of lawyers in the Philippines, has issued a statement raising an interesting legalistic claim regarding the impeachment of Chief Justice Renato Corona. The statement argues that while the impeachment process itself against Corona is legal, some of the grounds relied on, particularly those which question the opinions of the justices applying the Constitution in actual cases, constitute an assault on the judiciary…

    To one looking at the broader picture of the travel ban against former president Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, sans the witting or unwitting shortcomings of the key characters from all sides, it may be reasonable to assume that the question of great commonsensical importance may inevitably boil down to: Who among these players is actually acting honorably, honestly and in fair play? The obtaining facts tell us that the adjudicatory phase of the criminal cases against Arroyo including electoral sabotage, plunder and other high crimes of graft and corruptions had been well approaching when she…
  • Political Process is More Transparent Than Judicial Process

    Admin

    Impeachment is a political process mainly because party-mates will vote along party lines. This is the habiliment of democracy. Majority controls the business of the day, minority voice is heard for the record, but it does not carry the business for the day. We should not lose our equilibrium because some Senators have already prejudged Merci and therefore they should inhibit from sitting in the impeachment body. The process itself is political and therefore, it will be resolved in accordance with party agenda. Merci, from my recollection did not argue that politics is ruinous to public…

    So it is now the time to bite the bullet until and unless some kind of anesthetic is found for the string of higher scots for our expressways and public transport modes. The Aquino administration surely knows these higher rates exact a political cost. It can, of course, be argued by P-Noy’s communications team that with 7 in 10 Filipinos support the long term goal of putting our lives in order, the adjustments simply cannot be put off. But while this point is conceded, the matter of cogently communicating the reason/s for the upticks cannot be neglected. Let’s cite another point – the…

  • The Complex Geopolitical and Domestic Realities of the War on Drugs

    Sherwin
    10 Jun 2015 | 3:37 pm
    The war on drugs is not exactly like the war on terrorism. For starters, the war on terrorism is rather more effective. It is rare that an act of terrorism happens on U.S. soil, conducted by a foreign interest. While many would say that the powers that be are abusing their mandate by conducting surveillance on U.S. citizens, the fact remains that the average citizen remains terror-free in their day to day lives. The same cannot be said about the war on drugs. As wars go, it is hard to imagine how one could be lost so badly by those who remain so resolute to fight it. It seems the harder we…

Especially at the office, where our days are filled with projects, emails, meetings and plastic-packaged takeaway lunches, potentially harmful habits can slip by unnoticed. However, environmental concerns are moving to the forefront of modern ethical issues, and it’s literally changing the way we do business. Not only is it becoming more important than ever to reduce our impact, it’s important for businesses to present an eco-friendly culture to attract conscientious consumers.

This is a very old teaching which I believe, one time in the congregation's history was being taught to the faithful. But history would also tell us that the Church discouraged such teaching because of its lack of historical and factual basis. So what's it about? Basically its about the Sabbatine Privilege allegedly granted by Pope John XXII, claiming that the Blessed Mary appeared to him with the promise to the wearer of the scapular…

My love for God triggers an insatiable thirst to experience his presence, to be with him, and to serve him by serving his people unconditionally.
