Happy All Saints Day!

Bishop Mike has called us “saints in the making” who will join the saints someday to whom we pray.

Currently, I’m in a Saint Benedict Novena, initiated by my Bestie Evie (who claims him as her patron after her own healing).

Since he is the Patron Saint for Students, I’ve sought his intercession as I enter my round(s) of full faculty dissertation defense

Saints are special, and I like this analogy that Evie introduced to me:

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us rid ourselves of every burden and sin that clings to us and persevere in running the race that lies before us.”

Hebrews 12:1 [pointed out by Maryknoll]

Happy Belated Grandparents’ Day!

Last week, I had the pleasure of spending time with my good friends’ grandmother, who was sweet enough to give me these birthday gifts! 🎁

📖 This affirmations book definitely comes in handy as a reminder of beauty from the inside out, and this prayer is the most kind gesture. 🙏

💝 Of course, I was happy to see the Victoria’s Secret tissue paper before I unwrapped the package, so I’ll use this VS Heavenly (one of my fave fragrances) lotion ~ all of these can fit into my handbag… 👜

☝️GOD bless nice Natalia👏
