Rogate: Spirituality of Total Salvation. Pope Francis puts much emphasis on the on God’s compassion as total salvation for the total person. In addressing a general audience last August 6, 2014, the pope said, “At the heart of the new covenant is our realization that, in Christ, we are embraced by God’s mercy and compassion, and that our lives must bear witness to his love for all our brothers and sisters.” Most especially, the pope invites us to recognize the new law “in the poor, in those that suffer, in those in need.” And inspired by the prophecy of the last judgment in Mt 25:31-46, the pope emphasizes that “our Christian life will be judged on how we treat him in the least of our brethren.” This, needless to say, has been St. Hannibal’s spirituality which SHEC perpetuates today.

Relaxing the Spirit PDF Print E-mail

Mission is not only about serious business. Bonding and relaxation are necessary for Kingdom apostles to refresh themselves. In return, they become refreshing for others. Accordingly, leaders, together with Fr. Orville Cajigal, RCJ,  went for bonding at the Little Bridge Resort, Taal, Batangas last August 2, 2014. The leaders who enjoyed the moment were George Valenzuela, Andrea Reyna, Marilyn Pogoy, Rene Sauza, Grace Domalaon, Crista Mae Sarmiento, Marielle Flores, Reuben Velasco, Evangeline Lacdang, Kevin Velasco, Ruby Rose Tosoc, Carlo Sarmiento, Angel Tosoc Jr., Ivan Dale Bartolome and Jake Tendoy.

Moment with God PDF Print E-mail

A Chinese maxim counsels that harvesting is easier and faster when farmers stop occasionally in order to sharpen their sickles. In the context of the Kingdom mission, Kingdom apostles need to have regular moments with God. God, so to speak, is the spring from where they burst forth to rejuvenate the mission. For said purpose, Fr. Dexter Prudenciano, RCJ, Fr. Orville R. Cajigal, RCJ, Fr. Arlene Gumangan, RCJ, Elmer Bergonia Jr., Maricel Escarcha, Estrella Buenaflor and Alma Borongan went to Canyon Ranch, Carmona, Cavite. This opportune moment happened last August 27, 2014.

Rogate: Spirituality of Hope. Hoping even against hope…one can truly think and feel so especially in extreme subhuman conditions, like the persistent problems on poverty and injustice. In connection, Pope Emeritus Benedict counsels that “God remains God: he remains good with an indestructible goodness. He remains the redeemer in whose hands man’s destructive and cruel activity is transformed by his love.” This character of God makes a spirituality of justice as essentially a spirituality of hope, too. For it is only with hoping that one can be assured that it is never in vain to do something even if the way things are seems to remain as it is. This spirituality of hope, needless to say, keeps the fire of social justice mission alive in SHEC.
