TRUE LOVE FROM A DISTANCE

TRUE LOVE FROM A DISTANCE

Through all the hardships, all they can do is cry, and then continue to thrive on. I admire these women for having courage and resilience, and for being brave enough to take risks. They sacrifice their lives for their family and their children, knowing that when they return home, things will be different.

The Implications of the Synod of the Amazon to the Philippines

The Synod of the Amazon is important to us in the Philippines because it reminds us that our local realities are the loci where our collaborative efforts to care for our common home need to be forged, nurtured and sustained. Thus, the Synod of the Amazon is not only for Latin America, it is also for us in this side of world, and for the circle of life. It is indeed a Synod for life. One of the slogans for the Synod of the Amazon is “Save the Amazon, She will save Us!”, not far from the cry to defend the Sierra Madre Mountain ranges, “Buháy na Sierra Madre, Buhay nating lahat” (Sierra Madre Alive or Full of life, Our life.)
