When Vision Meets Passion

good-gov-2019“Good governance and responsible citizenship’: this is the tagline I use for my advocacy.”

- Jesus P. Estanislao

 

The Spaniards came to colonize the Philippines thinking of gold and spices. Christianization of the native was an important goal but not an urgent one. The Spanish colonizers wanted to get rich first.

 

This bit of history was cited by Dr. Jesus P. Estanislao, in a forum on “Good Governance and Its Sustainability: Towards Dream Philippines”, last April 10, at Whitewoods Convention and Leisure Hotel in Silang Cavite.

The Magic is in You

cmmamonLife has a way of throwing challenges and obstacles when we least expect it. The key is  always have that readiness to hurdle whatever it is that comes our way.  Big or small, you must find a cue to move forward and carry on. I hope for a fact that the scholars, many of you are burdened by many reasons, some may have a life easier than others, but I am confident that you are all made of stronger stuff with resolved determination and attitude as you sail through the tough times- which did not break, instead, make you. -- Mr. Cesar Mario O. Mamon | Chairman and President, Enchanted Kingdom

Let us be S.M.A.R.T. in our 2019 Resolutions!

Year-of-the-Youth-2019Ultimately, and changing the order of the three CBCP-cited key traits of the Filipino youth, being S.M.A.R.T. will yield more bountiful fruits if the youth will likewise humbly and trustingly B.E.G. for God’s graces so that he grows in awareness, acknowledgment, acceptance and assimilation of his being a beloved, empowered and gifted child of God that he truly is. After all, Jesus Christ Himself reminded us that “apart from Me, you can do nothing” (John 15:5); or more positively, as He inspired St. Paul to declare, “I can do all things in Him who strengthens me!” (Phil 4:13).  -- Rev. Fr. Peter EM Cabreros

Aim for Greater Things

Darwin-HerillaLagi nating tandaan na hindi lahat ng pag kakataon ay magugustuhan natin ang trabaho o gawaing ibibigay sa atin. Hindi lahat ng bagay ay naka-ayon sa kagustuhan natin. Matuto tayong mag tiyaga at mahalin ang ating ginagawa, hindi tayo bibigyan ng Panginoon ng problema o gawain na di natin kayang lampasan at higit sa lahat aim higher, wag natin bigyan ng limitasyon ang ating mga sarili. Lagi natin isipin na kaya nating mas higitan pa kung anu man ang meron tayo ngayon. Dadating at dadating ang panahon na makakaramdam tayo ng kagustuhang sumuko,  ngunit lagi nating tandaan na nandyan ang Panginoon upang mahingian natin ng lakas upang mag patuloy sa laban ng buhay. -- DARWIN HERILLA | Awardee, Merit, Outstanding In-school and In-Plant, and Learning Excellence | Trained and employed at Nexperia Philippines
