I like having a hodgepodge of varying app icon shapes 😂
Google Design: Gone are the days when you had a hodgepodge of varying icon shapes across your homescreen.

Me: 🙄

I'm really excited about the additional formatting tools and alignment options. Looks like the only thing missing is the ability to change font sizes.

Miraculously, the co-pilot survived.

This bears a striking resemblance to British Airways 5390, a BAC-111 flight where the first officer was partially sucked out. Everyone on board that flight survived as well.

St Augustine’s Homily on the Feast of the Ascension of the Lord:

Today our Lord Jesus Christ ascended into heaven; let our hearts ascend with him. Listen to the words of the Apostle: If you have risen with Christ, set your hearts on the things that are above where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God; seek the things that are above, not the things that are on earth.

For just as he remained with us even after his ascension, so we too are already in heaven with him, even though what is promised us has not yet been fulfilled in our bodies.

Christ is now exalted above the heavens, but he still suffers on earth all the pain that we, the members of his body, have to bear. He showed this when he cried out from above: Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? and when he said: I was hungry and you gave me food.

Why do we on earth not strive to find rest with him in heaven even now, through the faith, hope and love that unites us to him? While in heaven he is also with us; and we while on earth are with him. He is here with us by his divinity, his power and his love. We cannot be in heaven, as he is on earth, by divinity, but in him, we can be there by love.

He did not leave heaven when he came down to us; nor did he withdraw from us when he went up again into heaven. The fact that he was in heaven even while he was on earth is borne out by his own statement: No one has ever ascended into heaven except the one who descended from heaven, the Son of Man, who is in heaven.

These words are explained by our oneness with Christ, for he is our head and we are his body. No one ascended into heaven except Christ because we also are Christ: he is the Son of Man by his union with us, and we by our union with him are the sons of God. So the Apostle says: Just as the human body, which has many members, is a unity, because all the different members make one body, so is it also with Christ. He too has many members, but one body.

Out of compassion for us he descended from heaven, and although he ascended alone, we also ascend, because we are in him by grace. Thus, no one but Christ descended and no one but Christ ascended; not because there is no distinction between the head and the body, but because the body as a unity cannot be separated from the head.

10th May 2018 – Thursday, 6th Week of Easter – Ascension of the Lord

■Reflection on Acts 1:1-11, Ephesians 4:1-13 Mark 16:15-20

“Go out to the whole world!”

The last words of Jesus as He was taken up to heaven were: ‘Go out to the whole world, proclaim the Good News to all creation.’ Today, as we celebrate the feast of the Ascension, let us ask Jesus to speak to our hearts and let us truly understand the meaning of His words.

By our baptism, we are all called to the task of evangelisation. It is not just the work of a few, but all Christians have the responsibility to be evangelizers. By our words and deeds, we share the Good News with all!

Jesus who is with us today invites us again to look at the multitude of our brothers and sisters who live life as though there is no God. How can we bring Jesus to them? How can we be evangelizers in our concrete family, office, society?

Question for reflection:
What is God’s message for me in this time of silent prayer?

"The Eucharist, although it is the fullness of sacramental life, is not a prize for the perfect but a powerful medicine and nourishment for the weak."

"Someone can say, ‘I confess my sins only to God.’ Yes, you can say to God, ‘forgive me,’ and say your sins. But our sins are also against our brothers, against the Church. This is is why it is necessary to ask forgiveness of the Church and of our brothers, in the person of the priest."

A few days ago video calling was announced, and now native payments? Won't be surprised to see a lite version of the app minus all this bloat very soon.

I miss the Instagram of old, when they focused (yes, pun intended) on photography and not on gimmicks like Stories.

"We should, indeed, honor St. Joseph, since the Son of God Himself was graciously pleased to honor him by calling him father. The Holy Scriptures speak of him as the father of Jesus. "His father and mother were marveling at the things spoken  -concerning Him" (Luke 2:33).

Mary also used this name: "in sorrow thy father and I have been seeking thee" (Luke 2:48). If, then, the King of Kings was pleased to raise Joseph to so high a dignity, it is right and obligatory on our part to endeavor to honor him as much as we can."

Cattedrale a notte
St. Augustine Metropolitan Cathedral

It's been a long time since I've taken a nighttime photo of St. Augustine Cathedral. The air temperature was slightly on the cool side despite the large number of people at Gaston Park (diagonally across from the cathedral), presumably because of the Cagayan River and greenery nearby lowering temps a bit.

With the exception of very brief, intermittent downpours, we've had pretty much one long heatwave since Easter Sunday.

The wet season cannot come soon enough.
