One day, a man came to a priest and said, “Father, please help me. My wife is poisoning me.”
“What? How can you be sure?” the priest asked.
“I’m very sure!”
The priest was very concerned. He said, “Let me talk to your wife. I’ll see what I can find out—and I’ll let you know.”

Have you been hurt before?
Have you ever been rejected by others? Ridiculed? Maligned? Gossiped about?
Have you been cheated? Betrayed? Lied to? Stolen from?

“What difficult parts?” the priest asked.
“You know Father, just don’t say anymore the for better or for worse, for richer or poorer, in […]
I got sick last week. Twice.
I bet one reason was so I could write about healing today. (I’m getting worried. Everything is so personal with me. What if I write about exorcism?)
Last Thursday, after eating my breakfast, I felt an ache in my stomach.

A college student in Manila called up his Mom in the province.
“Mom, I need money,” he asked. “Can you send money over please?”
“Sure,” the mother said. “By the way, there’s a Math textbook you left here at home. I’ll send it over with the money.”
“Uh, oh yeah, Ok,” her son answered.
His mother sent the […]
My birthday was a blast.
I received 280+ text messages and almost 600 e-mails—not counting greetings from Facebook, Multiply, Friendster, etc… On the day itself, I received phone calls from Canada, Australia, Singapore…
And yesterday, at our Sunday prayer gathering (which we call the FEAST), I probably received a thousand hugs! If we had more […]
This week, I’m going to share my message via photos.
I’m not a photographer—so forgive my poor lighting, etc.
But there’s a reason why I want to show you these photos.
I’d like to show you the four greatest awards of my life…
