Pasensiya na po sa boses namin ni Tito Jojo Thiam, isang taon akong humihingi ng tulong sa mga awitin na ito... kaya napilitan na akong tumugtog at umawit kahit na pilit.

Open invitation na rin po ito to everyone who would like to improve on the songs just make sure Tito Gene gets the credit he deserve for all but one of these songs.

Hey, don't forget to email me a copy... Many thanks in advance!

FOR THE GREATER GLORY OF GOD!

CHRISTIAN LIFE PROGRAM

12. CHRISTIAN LIFE PROGRAM

Words: Gene Alvarado
Music: C2CD

Intro: D9-A9-G-A9

D-A-G-A
Christian Life Program is what it’s called
People think they’ll die out bored
Until the day you came and stay
Believe in God the speaker says


D-A-G-A
The sins you had the sins you knew
Was stirred up well inside of you
Shame you felt for what you do
You see your life flashed back to you


CHORUS:

D--G-A-D-Dsus
Like stream cold water pour down on me
My Lord your word cleanses me
I come to learn your love for me
There’s no beginning never ending


D-A-G-A
I stretched my hand and lift them high
For you my Lord I can’t deny
Salvation came to me I pray
On that spirit filled baptism day


D-A-G-A
Then I wonder what I shall do
To spread your word and your love to
I give my life and soul to you
Fulfill the promise I made with you

(repeat CHORUS)

D-A-G-A
Now CLP is at its end
We gathered all in one weekend
Dedicated servants all we come
Couples for Christ we did become

His cross so big my sins befall

Lord I regret that it’s only now

I come to you and then I vow
Life is nothing compared to you
Who loved me so and gave me You

Yes to you I say out loud

Yes I say you made me proud
My life you changed I owe to you
My sweet Lord Jesus I love you

Yes to you I say it again

Yes I mean my sweet refrain
You lift me up among all men
Yes O Lord I say amen

Yes to you and yes again

Life I’ve lost now I regain
Help me Lord not to forget
To answer yes for all I can

Yes to you…

Stations of the Cross

From Fr. Z:

Here is a reading of the Via Crucis, the Way of the Cross, composed by Joseph Card. Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI, for the 2005 Good Friday observance at the Colosseum in Rome.

Prayer to be Freed of the Seven Deadly Sins




O Jesus, meek Savior and Prince of Peace, implant in me the virtues of gentleness and patience. Let me curb the fury of anger and restrain all resentment and impatience so as to overcome evil with good, attain your peace, and rejoice in Your love.

O Jesus, Model of humility, divest me of all pride and arrogance. Let me acknowledge my weakness and sinfulness, so that I may bear mockery and contempt for Your sake and esteem myself as lowly in your sight.

O Jesus, Teacher of abstinence, help me to serve You rather than our appetites. Keep me from gluttony - the inordinate love of food and drink and let me hunger and thirst for Your justice.

O Jesus, Lover of purity, remove all lust from my heart, so that I may serve You with a pure mind and a chaste body.

O Jesus, Father of the poor, help me to avoid all covetousness for earthly goods and give me a love for heavenly things. Inspire me to give to the needy, just as You gave Your life, that I might inherit eternal treasures.

O Jesus, Exemplar of love, keep me from all envy and ill-will. Let the grace of Your love dwell in me that I may rejoice in the happiness of others and bewail their adversities.

O Jesus, zealous Lover of souls, keep me from all sloth of mind or body. Inspire me with zeal for your glory, so that I may do all things for You and in You.

O Jesus, my Merciful Redeemer, my Loving Savior, my Divine Healer, all this I humbly pray and ask in confidence, and filled with faith, hope and trust, in Your Holy and Mighty name, Amen

Thank You Jesus, Praise You Jesus, Bless You Jesus, I Love You Jesus

CHAPLET OF DIVINE MERCY


LENT: Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving


Image source: ReasonsWhy

As you sit, reading these words, open your own hands before you...

Open hands image well the three ancient exercises of Lent: prayer, fasting and almsgiving.

Lifting my open hands in prayer is a sign of praise... simply sitting with open hands, palms up, is a gesture of openness to receiving what God has to offer us in the prayer we offer to God...

Hands emptied of food and drink (and just plain stuff!) are the hands of one who fasts: hands emptied of tangible nourishment in the hope of feeding hungers deep in the soul...

Hands reaching out are helping hands, ready to serve the needs of neighbors, particularly the needs of the poor...

Empty, open, outstretched hands are the hands of a beggar...
and before our God, we are all beggars...
before our God, we open our hands
and seek the peace that only God can give...

Lent is a time for hands:
lifted in prayer,
emptied to be filled,
reaching to help...

Are these my hands this
Lent?

THE LUMINOUS MYSTERY

THE JOYFUL MYSTERY

THE GLORIOUS MYSTERY


THE SORROWFUL MYSTERY

IHS MARCH 2010

MARCH
ST. JOSEPH

St. Joseph, spouse of the Virgin Mary and foster father of Jesus was a descendant of the royal house of David.

St. Joseph, as earthly father of Jesus was a provider. He took Mary to be his wife,as an angel told him in a dream that the child she was bearing was conceived by the Holy Spirit and was to become Savior of his people.

"His mother Mary was engaged to Joseph... a man who always did what was right... "but" an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Do not be afraid to take Mary to your wife. For it is by the Holy Spirit that she was conceived. She will have a son and you will name him Jesus - because he will save his people from their sin." (Matt 1:18-21)

St. Joseph was also his family's protector. He later took the child Jesus and His mother to escape as an angel told him of Herod's plan plan to kill the baby. They left during the night for Egypt, where they stayed until Herod died.

".. an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph and said, "Herod is looking for the child in order to kill him. So get up, tke the child and his mother and escape to Egypt, and stay there until I tell you to leave." (Matt 2:13)

St. Joseph was later called to be priest of the house that God had blessed him with. Again as instructed by an angel, he brought Mary, his wife and their son Jesus, to Nazareth in Galilee where the boy Jesus grew strong and wise.

"After Herod died, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt and said..." go back, because those who tried to kill the child are dead..." he went to the province of Galilee and made his home in a town named Nazareth. (Matt 2:19-23)

St. Joseph passed from the world with perfect faith and peace of heart, assisted by Mary and Jesus, sometime before the beginning of Jesus' ministry. St. Joseph is Patron of a Happy Death, Protector of Virginity, and Patron of the Universal Church.
