On “Devotion Gets Sturdier, Hope Springs Eternal” (Published on September 17, 2020):
• Marilou Falcon:
“ Well said. I totally agree ”
• Antonio Doblon: “In was recorded in history of Bicol Catholic faith that when there once a Cholera outbreak, Bicolanos prayed for Our Lady of Peñafrancia for intercession. In this COVID 19 Pandemic, pious Bicolanos are expected to be more ardent in seeking Ina’s help to ease their worries about the contagious virus. Due to the COVID 19 scare, the wearing of face masks plus faceshield, passenger vehicles with barriers plus vacating in between (one seat apart) spaces sitting arrangement plus 2 meters physical distancing and lockdowns, then cancellations of major monthlong activities of our Neustra Senora de PeñaFrancia fiesta really placed us in many inconveniences. In this time of pandemic, to whom we can turn on to? For most Bicolano devotees, siisay an satong sasarigan? Siempre, “SI INA TA”!”
Ini an totoo. On “Hurop-hurop Kita Gabos” (Published on September 17, 2020):
“Dapat lalong pakusogon an satuyang debosyon ki Ina tanganing tabangan kita niya na mahali na pandemya sa paagi kan saiyang aki na si Jesus. Amen”
“Well said Ernie.”
On “Senior Moments are forever” (Published on September 17, 2020)
Professor: What is Pre-destination theory?
Student: Sir, the answer to your question requires diligence, devotion and particular attention to that particular question. However, after giving the matter with some CONSIDERABLE thought, May I reply not without sense of preservation but the most DIRECT ANSWER I could give you now, SIR is for me to KEEP SILENT for I don’t know the answer.
Professor: If you kill your parents, all your brothers and sisters, what will the society will call you? A serial killer? A cold-blooded culprit? A psychopathic criminal? What do you think is the answer?
Witty student: Sir, you are now an ORPHAN!!!
Professor: Anyone can give us an example of simple syllogism?
Absentee Student: All STARS are part of Heavenly bodies. Nora Aunor is a superstar. Therefore, Nora Aunor is a part of Heavenly bodies!!!
