A chance to play

Finally, a day at home…

Since this was a Saturday, I played for the choir for the anticipated mass. It was a chance to play and offer it for the Holy Father. Hence, I specifically requested we play two songs for this mass. The first was Be Not Afraid by Bob Dufford and the second, Tell the World of His Love by Katrina Belamide.

These songs have special significance insofar as the Filipino’s connection with John Paul II is concerned. The first song speaks of a favorite saying of the Holy Father. It even speaks of his life, his lack of fear. The second was the official song of the 1995 World Youth Day where the Pope visited the country.

Cardinal Ratzinger said in his homily of the Pope’s funeral mass said that the Pope interprets his priesthood “with particular reference to three sayings of the Lord. First: “You did not choose me, but I chose you. And I appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last” (John 15:16). The second saying is: “The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep” (John 10:11). And then: “As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you; abide in my love” (John 15:9). In these three sayings we see the heart and soul of our Holy Father.”

These are saying that could likewise define a good life. I’ll try to remember these words.

Hey! Please stop me! I’m waxing religious and a religious lawyer is oxymoronic. Also, I already said back to regular programming…

Anyway, I stayed out of the house a little late because a friend of mine needed some advise. I told this friend not be pressured by anything and anyone into a life-changing situation. This is likewise generic good advise for all of you out there.

Finally, a few pointed questions (more like cross examination…) through text confirms that my wife has not changed her ways. Still untruthful to the end.

Again, that’s me a lawyer to the last…could not escape it even on a rest day…

Later…
