The curse of the culture of death

Rev. Eutiquio B. Belizar, Jr., SThD By the roadside   “What have you done? Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground.

Rev. Eutiquio B. Belizar, Jr., SThD By the roadside   That is how I see the CBCP in its latest pastoral letter on the EJKs, the drug war and other anti-life efforts at work in our islands.

Perplexed by words

Rev. Eutiquio ‘Euly’ B. Belizar, Jr., SThD By the roadside   “Have you seen a man hasty in words? There is more hope of a fool than of him.” Solomon in Proverbs 29:20 A commoon saying to the effect that “a picture paints a thousand words” was once met by a witty retort saying that […]

A prophet of the Most High (Lk 1:76): The Church yesterday, today and tomorrow

Rev. Eutiquio ‘Euly’ B. Belizar, Jr., SThD By the roadside   Suddenly, a heavy darkness is upon us. The sad thing about it is that, while some see how dark it is where we are now, others prefer to see the situation as a prelude to daylight. In fact, most see the darkness as a […]

“Love is a verb”: the corporal and spiritual works of mercy

Rev. Eutiquio ‘Euly’ B. Belizar, Jr., SThD By the roadside   The culture of death is alive in the Philippines, and with a vengeance.

Taking the silence of Jesus before Pilate

Rev. Eutiquio ‘Euly’ B. Belizar, Jr., SThD By the roadside One of my favorite inventions from modern technology is the ‘mute’ button on the TV remote device.
