  1. Panalangin Para sa Buwan ng Wika (ni Efraim C. Mendoza)
  2. Panginoon, maraming salamat po sa Pambansang Wikang ipinagkaloob Niyo sa amin.

    Hinihiling po namin sa Inyo na Kayo’y magsilbing gabay

    upang kami’y magkaugnay-ugnay ngayong Buwan ng Wika.

    Kaming mga simuno ay tulungan Niyo sanang isakilos ang mga nararapat na pandiwang

    Naaayon sa ikatatatag ng aming Pambansang Wika.

    Batid po naming kami’y kahalintulad ng isang pariralang walang buong diwa

    kapag kami’y walang sariling wika.

    Huwag Niyo po sanang hayaang matuldukan ang aming pagnanais

    na panatilihing buhay ang Wikang Filipino.

    Patnubayan Niyo po ang mga Pilipinong kumikilos at gumagawa

    ng mga hakbang upang imulat sa bawat isa sa amin

    ang kasalukuyang kalagayan ng aming wikang Pambansa.

    Patnubayan NIyo rin po sana ang anumang mga balakin, proyekto,

    at iba’t ibang kaganapan ngayong Buwan ng Wika.

    Asahan Niyo pong kayo ang maging Tuwirang layon ng lahat ng aming pagsusumikap.


    2. Characteristic of Jesuit Education (CJE): Jesuit education insists on individual care and concern for each person (Cura personalis). Cura personalis is not limited to the relationship between teacher and student; it affects the curriculum and the entire life of the institution. All members of the educational community are concerned with one another and learn from one another. The personal relationships among students, and also among adults – lay and Jesuit, administrators, teachers, and auxiliary staff – evidence this same care. A personal concern extends also to former students, to parents and to the student within his or her family.

    7. Teach us to Pray: Finding God in All Things

    Fr. James Martin, SJ

    If you asked five Jesuits from different countries to sum up Ignatian Spirituality, which is based on the life and teachings of their founder, St. Ignatius Loyola, they would probably say the same thing: “Finding God in all things.” Funny enough, that phrase isn’t found in Ignatius’s writings; rather, it’s something one of the early Jesuits recounted the saint saying.

    What does it mean? Simply put, God is to be found not only in obvious places – like church services, private prayer, and reading the Bible – but everywhere and in everything: in our busy workplaces, in our quirky families, and even when we are by ourselves, feeling lonely. Every moment is an invitation to experience God. This doesn’t mean that every second of our day will feel like a life-changing epiphany, but it does mean that Jesus’ invitation to “Come and see” applies not just to the disciples in first-century Palestine but to us, today. God is saying, “Come, look at your day, and see where I am.”

    How can we do this? By noticing.

    When you speak with someone, can you see your conversation as a holy moment of encounter? Perhaps they’re struggling – God may be inviting you to care for them. When you eat a meal, can you be grateful for the nourishment and also remember that it’s God who is feeding you? When a sunbeam hit the carpet, can you rejoice in the beauty of creation? At the end of the day, it helps to remembers these things – all things – and be grateful you’ve found God. And, more importantly, that God has found you.

    James Martin is a Jesuit priest and author of “Between Heaven and Mirth”, “The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything”, and “My Life with the Saints”.
