PNP Mass Wedding 2016
By NUP Rommel Phillips E. Ragasa
“Seeing the sunset with your spouse and child; the kiss and hug of a baby; the laughter of your child; having a meal and hearing the word of God with the whole family; contemplating and crying with your partner in times of crises; celebrating small triumphs of right over wrong in our daily work and sharing real laughter and quality time with friends, family and loved-ones are treasures in life that should be given the time and effort instead of pursuing monetary favours and temporal powers. These are examples of what counts most in the eyes of God and in the eyes of our child…examples of Life’s Best Practice.”
