American Institute Health Care Professionals‘s insight: This article looks at how New Year Resolutions come and go, but it takes more than a quick vow to change something or a few days.   If we are targeting a vice, we need to focus on eliminating and not become distraught when we fall, or too eager when we succeed.  Habits are difficult to overcome.  Quick fixes are a myth. With God, we grow and part

Advent as Grateful Waiting for God’s Gift of Spiritual Companionship

Philippines typhoon aftermath: Religion as solace

  The day after the typhoon, Father Edwin Bacaltos stepped out of the compound of the Church of Our Mother of Perpetual Help in central Tacloban and began his work.
