Manigong Bagong Pasko. A Thought for 2013

Quote from St. Columba (521AD – 597AD). Founder of a monastery in Iona that he turned into a Celtic Christian missions training school (these trainees became known as the peregrini). I believe this is a good wish for you and me (and all of us in 2013)

“O Lord, grant us that love which can never die, which will enkindle our lamps but not extinguish them, so that they may shine in us and bring light to others. Most dear Savior, enkindle our lamps that they may shine forever in your temple. May we receive unquenchable light from you so that our darkness will be illuminated and the darkness of the world will be made less. Amen.”


To all, “Manigong Bagong Taon” (“Prosperous New Year” in Tagalog)
