Watching the news on Typhoon Sendong was like remembering Typhoon Ondoy. We were able to get through Typhoon Ondoy as a nation, let us do that again now and face the damages of Typhoon Sendong as a country.
Christmas is a season for giving. Let’s give a special meaning to this year’s celebration by helping the victims of Typhoon Sendong in Mindanao.
My Facebook news feed is filled with updates on death tolls, news and organizations I can contact to help; yours probably looks the same as mine. Pick the organization you trust and send out your donations. You can even send donations through Smart and Globe.

Amidst the chaos, let us not forget to pray.
We Humble Ourselves in Prayer…
Oh,God our Father:
In faith, we acknowledge your paternal care over us, your sons, daughters and children. In hope, we trust in your divine providence of giving us wisdom and courage as we face the challenges in life. In love, we invoke your help and guidance during these difficult days of death and destruction in our dear country.
Ours is a prayer of thanksgiving for once again reminding us that ours is an imperfect world, that heaven is not on earth and that nature every now and then tells us not to abuse her. Ours too is a prayer of repentance for calling upon you when we are in need and desperation but forgetting you in favorable times and pleasing occasions.
Ours as well is a prayer of petition as we say:
Grant eternal peace to those who lost their lives. Embrace the children who died in their innocence. Help those who are hurt and cure those who are sick.
Encourage those who suffer the destruction of their homes and properties, and to once again stand up and rebuild their future.
Bless all those who extend their helping hands to those in need of food, shelter and clothing, who share their time, talents and resources with others.
Inspire more people to be men and women for their neighbors, convinced that the more they are for others, the taller they stand before you.
Spare us please from other natural disasters and devastation if this be according to Your will and for our own spiritual good and growth.

Let us all be safe and help each other in this time of need.
