As part of our seminary formation, we in the College Department are going on a five-day annual Retreat at Mirador Jesuit Villa in Baguio City, nestled in the cool mountains of the North. Afterwards, I shall proceed immediately to Iloilo City in the beautiful South to participate in the Presbyteral Ordination of a very dear friend, Rev. Theodbriel R. Villariza, Jr. As such, I will be taking a two-week break from my blogging.
Hopefully this time will fulfill the much needed respite from the struggles and hardwork of community life and academe. May it be filled with heavenly consolations and beautiful memories to give us strength as we persevere in following Christ. With God's grace, may it be an opportune time of renewal, to know ourselves better, to love God more, and to recommit ourselves as his servants.
Pleased pray for our retreat even as we pray for all of you.
