Jan. 28, 2012 – Feast of the Holy Infant Jesus

Father Felix Linatoc advised the laity in his homily about our continued devotion to Senor Santo Nino, the Holy Infant Jesus, during the anniversary mass at St. Ambrose Church.  Our devotion to the Holy Infant Jesus reminds us of our love for our children. When we love our children, we create an atmosphere of affection.  We have to tell them to remember the word FAMILY (Father and Mother I Love You) so they would know the value of having a family.  We must make it a habit to show our love for our children thru words and actions like kissing them and saying nice words when we tucked them into bed. We should also teach them how to respect elders and priests and to attend mass every Sunday. Moreover, our devotion does not excuse us from illness and disease but it symbolizes our openness to God’s blessings and protection.
