In this blessed day, let us PAUSE for a while amidst this pandemic crisis and let us REFLECT on the recent activities that we have done, if we have ever connected with ourselves and the Lord lately. Now, together with us, let us PRAY for all the restless things we have in our minds and our hearts;

Dear Lord,
“We pray for our community, for its safety, good health, protection and prosperity. We also ask you to provide for the families who are underprivileged and in need of your mercy and your grace. This we ask in Jesus Name, Amen. “

Have a blessed Sunday everyone!

presents you 3 amazing ideas on being a great listener, friendship & vulnerability and loving and being loved.

Being a good listener is a monument to being a good friend., and that is why, as good friends, we tend to be on the receiving end of their rants. Let’s be honest, sometimes being at the receiving end isn’t as much fun as the delivering end.
But why do we find it boring when another person talks about himself, but find it enjoyable when we talk about ourselves?

Watch as this video explain why being a good listener is as good as being a good relater.

Misconceptions about mental health disorders have been circulating worldwide. These misconceptions resulted and created a barrier between people with mental illnesses and the existing communities around the world. Individuals that are known to have a mental illness are being excluded and discriminated because of the assumptions being held by most of the people in our society.

To lessen the impact of these assumptions about mental illness to our community, check out the infographic below.

Dull. Lazy. Stale. Unexciting. Unmoved. — these may be words that describe us and how we feel lately.

Sometimes we may just wake up with zero motivation, feeling like the world is bringing us down especially in times like these. We sometimes feel like there is nothing to look forward to each day and that there are just things beyond our control that makes us feel down and unmotivated. Don’t worry, we all have those days! But let’s not let it consume us. Let’s turn all those distasteful words into pleasing ones.

Here are some motivational/inspirational messages, poems and quotes that might brighten up your day and might move you today!

These past few months have been a roller coaster ride for us , with being in quarantine and dealing with many life problems that are unique to each and every one of us. As we have learned to focus on ourselves first before reaching out to our circle of relationships with the friends and family that we love, it is time for us to brace another challenge that we can all do.

As the month of May comes to an end, let us remember that raising awareness for the importance of one's Mental Health doesn't stop there. In fact, it is time for us now to ripple out and educate the society.

For this week's theme the focus is aimed at looking in the context of our Society and the overall impact it has in connection of one's Mental Health. With this, let's be reminded that everyday is another day to be kinder to one another.

“Cura Personalis”, which is Latin for “care for the whole person” is commonly heard and discussed in Jesuit universities. At its core is the belief that our skills, talents, abilities, physical attributes, personalities, desires, hearts, faith, and minds are all equally worthy of care and attention. Beginning with this Ignatian Principle, it is important to first identify the different stressors during and post quarantine. And how you can care for yourself and to others.
