God is good

By Erwin de la Rosa

“When I think of all the ways that You have been faithful, I rejoice to know that is how You will always be.”

These lines from the song of Marty Nystrom entitled “Always” is the song of my heart tonight as I think of all the blessings, which came my way today and the past days. The Apostle Paul once said that in times when he had plenty and in times when he had not, still God is the Great Provider.

I can’t help but utter the same sentiments and experience as I think of the ways God has blessed me both in times when I have something financially and in times when I do not have. I cannot tell the difference though because God is so abundant that I cannot tell when I have and I do not have.

For when I am aware that I have, like when I have money, as if, it’s nothing – it’s only money, which we all know is bent to be gone, especially with the many financial obligations and needs and sometimes wants we spend with.

Malacañang diocese

bishop2In the recent past, certain members of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) were said to have been made target-objects of the so called “Envelopmental System”, courtesy of well identified Malacanang agents – a practice of money largess said to be observed with some media practitioners either to buy their kindness or to pay for their precious silence.

Soon thereafter, it was claimed that some Bishops were made participants of a dinner tendered in a modest restaurant by the same Malacanang minions to forge some kind of a beneficial “mutual relationship” between the said Churchmen and Malacanang. These events seemed to have taken place on the occasion of a CBCP Plenary Assembly.

It was also noted that there was a time when exactly the same Malacanang cohorts were seen giving gifts to certain Bishops, i.e., rather exquisitely made and expensive items used for Mass celebration. And sometime thereafter, it was further alleged that there were already this and that meeting held among certain Bishops and the principal Malacanang tenant for this and that cause. For one reason or another, media found such events worthy of mention for the curious general public to know.
