God’s Not Dead

God’s Not Dead

The Lord has Risen, Alleluia! Our God is not dead, He is alive! Christ died for each one of us. This “death” of His is the greatest sign of love. Rejoice my brothers and sisters, Christ loves each one us. Let us turn back to Him and show others what it means to be Christians. […]

Lent/Cuaresma

Lent/Cuaresma

Lent is a time in which many offer up things for God in order to grow in a certain area in their life. What have you offered up? How many times do we complain about school, work, family and/or live in general? Why do we complain? Does someone or something drive us crazy, angry or […]

Estar Atento Con Dios…Ser Positivo

Estar Atento Con Dios…Ser Positivo

Lo que voy a compartir en este momento es de mi primer semestre en Sacred Heart Seminary, donde descubrí la profundad del amor de Dios en mi vida. En mi mente pensé que iba a empezar con la teología pero no era lo que pensaba.. Pues eso me hizo entender que en la vida hay que […]

Talents

Talents

How am I using the gifts God gave me? St. Paul says “Do not neglect the gift you have, which was given to you by prophecy when the council of elders laid their hands on you.” (1 Timothy 4:14) This year I find myself directing the “Mariachi” and Spanish Choir at Conception Seminary College. It […]

Unity

Unity

How good and how pleasant it is, when brothers live in unity. Do you live in unity? It this unity with your family, friends, and/or neighbors? What about the people you don’t like?

La Vida En El Seminario

La Vida En El Seminario

Que pronto se pasa el tiempo. Otro semestre en Concepción ya casi se termina. Siempre me pregunto, “¿Aún sigo haciendo lo que Dios quiere?” y mi repuesta siempre viene siendo sí y no. Sí, porque aún estoy feliz en lo que hago y en el lugar donde yo estoy. No, porque yo estoy consciente de […]

On the Feast of Holy Vietnamese Martyrs November 24, 2015

It is November 24, 2015! For a Vietnamese Catholic like me, it is a very special day- the solemnity of Holy Vietnamese Martyrs.  This year it is even more special! Last weekend, I got a chance to come back to the diocese for a short visit in which I helped with the bilingual Mass (English/Vietnamese). […]
