Hosea

Come back to me with all your heart, DON'T LET FEAR KEEP US APART. Trees do bend, though straight and tall; so must we to others call. Long have I waited for your coming home to me and living deeply our new life.

The wilderness will lead you to your HEART WHERE I WILL SPEAK. Integrity and justice with tenderness you shall know.

Long have I waited for your coming home to me and living deeply our new life.

You shall sleep secure with peace; faithfulness will be your joy. Long have I waited for your coming home to me and living deeply our new life.

-A song inspired by second chapter of the Old Testament book, Hosea.

Lucia Duhaylungsod

"Loo-chi-yah-doo-hai-loong-sod!" I dreamed I was speaking in tongues. The syllables of the whole piece were indistinct -- except that which was set in the middle. "Luci," in Latin, is "light;" "yah," in Hebrew, "God." "Duhaylungsod," in the vernacular, is "two cities." Thus, Lucia Duhaylungsod means "Divine Light shining forth to the two cities." Where, then, in the world are the "two cities"? In my spirit, I was led to understand these are the Island Garden City of Samal and Davao City which, among others, comprise the Archdiocese of Davao. What does it mean to us? It is an event that is about to happen in the Archdiocese in the days ahead. And it is VERY, VERY GOOD.
