"The Christianity of history is not Protestantism. If ever there were a safe truth it is this, and Protestantism has ever felt it so; to be deep in history is to cease to be a Protestant." (-John Henry Newman, An Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine).

"Where the bishop is, there let the people gather; just as where ever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church". -St. Ignatius of Antioch (ca 110 AD)a martyr later thrown to the lions, wrote to a church in Asia Minor. Antioch was also where the term "Christian" was first used.

“But if I should be delayed, you should know how to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of truth.” 1 Timothy 3:15

Prayer for the New Elected Philippine President

Dear Lord,

I implore you to look upon our new elected President Benigno Aquino III whose parents have been blessings to our people. Shield him from the influence of ravenous people and bestow him the iron will to wipe up corrupt officials still serving our communities. Bless him with wisdom that he may judge rightfully between the interests of the Filipino people from the interest selfish elites.

Look after his hearts from egotism that he may live not for himself but for the marginalize Filipinos. May the spirit of his virtuous parents keep him from falling into dishonesty. May he defend his Christian faith and live it according to the moral teachings of the Church that he may uphold the dignity of every human being including the unborn.

May he lead us just as Moses led a stubborn people while searching for the promise land you always wanted our country to have. Fill every Filipino with sincerity to support him and his government, not so much on what he could do for us but what we can do for our country.

May all Filipinos unite behind him remembering the legacy his parents had always wished for Filipinos.

May God bless the Philippines.

Amen.
