I’m missing my daughter right now. She is in a retreat house somewhere in Rizal with her classmates and teachers.It was just an overnight activity, but I still miss her presence around.

Students are expected to participate in the communal prayer, inspirational talks, silence and solitude, etc.  According to the letter sent to parents, the activity “will bring renewal to their body, mind and spirit and make them a better person”.

My daughter didn’t bring any yoga bag and other unnecessary items, just a pair of overnight shirt and pants and jeans and shirt for tomorrow’s activity. I’ll be fetching her tomorrow afternoon. I hope the activity will have an impact on my daughter like make her a little more sociable.

Catholic Churches in Quezon City

Are you preparing to visit seven Catholic churches this Holy Week for the traditional Visita Iglesia (Church Visit)? If you are in Quezon City and you don’t have a list yet of churches to visit next week, you can check it here.

Although the churches are accessible by public transport you may still need to wear sigvaris compression stockings to protect you legs as you have to walk most of the time as part of your atonement.
