Last week, I got a phone call from a school institution where this Filipina was taking a German language course. The secretary there already knew me and told me about the situation of this Filipina. Let me just name this Pinay, Ana...Ana is only five months here in Germany and she is three months pregnant as of now...(wow I envy her)..I've been married for almost five years but still did not get pregnant...just waiting for God's grace for me...
Ok let me continue....The secretary told me that Ana need immediate help before everything will be too late. ..I told the secretary of that school that I will be meeting Ana, which happened last Wednesday...and yup I met Ana that day and shared to me about her situation which is really very sad and depressing. She is married to this German guy who is irresponsible, lazy and even don't respect her as a person. His husband even telling her words that are so degrading.
Ana said that she is mentally tortured. She always tried her best to be a good wife but it is nothing to his husband. She do everything in the house like cleaning, washing clothes and cooking too. She said that she is treated like a maid but not a wife. If her husband don't like the food that she cooked, he let her eat everything. He even let her eat food that are almost expired....what a pitiful situation... As I look at her face while telling me about her situation, she looks pale and thin... and pregnant.
She said that her husband was not like that before as she met him in the Philippines. He was very kind to her and his family in the Philippines. They even communicated for four long years, before they got married in the Philippines. After they got married, she was able to obtain her visa to Germany after one year. That was a total of five years knowing each other.
The only bad thing that I can't really stand as she was telling her story was that, his husband wanted to abort the three months old baby in her womb so she can go back to the Philippines...Ana said that his husband is even making a contact to other Filipina at this moment, maybe as her replacement once she will be back to the Philippines. He really wanted to get rid of her. His husband even told her that once he will know that she is making contact and ask for help to anybody esp. for Pinays, he will even kill her. (Talagang nakakatindig balahibo).....such a scary and horrible story.
Those are the reasons why I really want to help her. I want to help whatever I can offer esp. saving the life of the unborn child in her womb. Last Thursday, I have to make a lot of phone calls to contact people and organizations who can offer her help. Thanks God that everything went ok. I want to extend my heartfelt appreciation to those people who helped her.

Children's discipline always starts at home. Parents always have the responsibility to discipline their children. In my own opinion, I believed that children must be discipline at the early stage of life specifically when they start talking. Whether the parents are professional or not, I believed that proper manners, values and discipline must be thought to them.
I am still not a Mother and if ever it is God's will for me to have children I will try my best to give them proper discipline. I know it is not easy to discipline children. I came from a very big family of twelve siblings. I am just very thankful that even my parents don't have time to each one of us, we are still given some discipline which until now is being inculcated in our lives.
I am very thankful to my parents for everything they had thought me before. The values and the teachings that they inculcated in my life are very great treasures which I will carry with me till the end of my time and will be passed on to my future children.
To those parents who have children like this, I am praying for you. I believed it is still not to late to give them proper manners and values at the very early age. Don't wait to give them discipline later. It might be too late.
Remember you can form a branch in a tree while it is still young but when it is old, it is already very difficult to form it the way you wanted it. Parents also have to remember that you are the children's first teachers at home. Whatever examples and actions you show to your children will reflect on you.
Here is the story and the prayer request!! Please help by praying!!! Wish everyone a very Wonderful day!!! Got to go now to run some important errands...
He is stubborn.
He uses abusive words in both private times and in public.
Please pray for him to become a good and kind human being.
Plus, he is a fussy eater.
The above is an excerpt from a prayer request.
The characteristics described are not unusual for a prayer
request. What was unusual was the age of the male who was the
subject of the prayer request.
He was three.
We can relate to the mother from the U.A.E. (United Arab Emirates)
We have a son who is two and a half and when George doesn't get
his way, he sounds just like her son.
Pray for us and anyone else who has a child with the same
Also, there are quite a few adults with identical characteristics.
Pray for those who have to deal with them and pray for us for
the times when we are them.

It is unfortunate that some people take this day as a big joke. On this day, they pull on a trick on some unsuspecting people. They exploit other people's innocence.
Today is not a big joke. It is no joke for parents to lose their children. It is not joke for children to be killed. It is no joke for Mary and Joseph to flee in the middle of the night to save their newborn Son from the sword of Herod. Please do not spend this day making practical jokes on anyone. The day today is written in red, written in blood; it is not a joke-day today.
The Holy Innocents who were massacred thousands of years ago by a mad king continue crying today. They are the aborted infants, the abandoned babies, the children caught in crossfires, the boys and girls who are exploited in many horrific ways. Their cries pierce our hearts. We cannot but be disturbed so as to act on their behalf.
Today's feast is not a day for making practical jokes on each other, as many people think it is. It is a day to stand with those caught in the crossfire between good and evil. Not again should we allow them to suffer. Never again should we remain indifferent to their plight. To save them is to save Jesus. Fr. Bobby T.
REFLECTION QUESTION: The cries of the Holy Innocents can still be heard today.
Forgive me, Jesus, for my indifference to the cries of the innocent. Forgive me, Jesus, for not saving You in the person of the dying children. Show me how I can help them and help me to defend and protect them. Amen.
St. Anthony, hermit, pray for us.
