On Virtual Mass

Since the lockdown was enforced most churches were closed as part of the measures to avoid the spread of the dreaded corona virus or COVID-19. Priests would say mass in private and most of them would have their masses aired through television networks or via live streaming.

I do believe that this pandemic was not accidentally caused but rather this was hatched by Satanic leaders who are taking pleasure in destroying God’s creation instead of nurturing it and letting it grow.

Whatever government does, it has to somehow try to keep the economic engine running lest it grounds to a full halt.

The Holy Week celebration this year is so different from all the celebrations we had in the past years. Churches are closed due to the lock down status in our country because of this Covid-19 pandemic.

CSU Pres. Morales likely to serve out her term of office

Silence and darkness in the war against COVID-19

Take some time to read the following excerpt from an opinion piece in a recent issue of the Daily Mirror, a national daily tabloid in the United Kingdom: “Without journalism, coronavirus would kill more people.
