Dear fellow disciples,
The parable in today’s Gospel is a warning against the uselessness of greed. Jesus condemns the accumulation of wealth as an end to itself when life is so fragile and death being always around the corner.

Dear Fellow Disciples,
This Sunday Jesus' prayer inspires us to address the Father as our Abba (daddy). It also teaches us, as His disciples, to transform our prayer into a continuous dialogue with the Father.

Dear people of God in the Parish and School of Saint Rose of Lima,
Peace and all of God’s blessings.
It is with a sense of wonder that I, along with Frs. Cyriac and Javier, start the new chapter of my ministry as a priest and pastor, and also this new chapel of my discipleship following Jesus in His Church. Our hope and prayer is that we may assist and accompany Saint Rose of Lima’s community (Church and School) as we continue to grow, strive and prosper in faithfulness, holiness, and unity as true disciples of Jesus in His Church.READ MORE
