Walking By Your Faith

There is a church my family here in Manila and I frequent to, and it sits idly in the middle of an alluring exclusive subdivision in Cavite.

St. Benedict Church Westgrove boasts of perfectly manicured landscaping, minimalist and pure architecture whilst letting people breathe into the essence of their faith. I suggest you pay a visit and attend a mass whenever you have the time. 

The church exterior is really beautiful. It doesn't bombard you with extreme details that distract you from the main purpose of you going there in the first place, championing you and your faith and nothing else.

The Holy Family is still a living symbol of domestic peace and this wood carving right outside the church was so beautiful it emanates happiness.

This is Isza's hand, my dearest niece. It has been said that God hears the prayers of a child so well because their heart is untainted as they are humans at their purest.

Life can keep you really busy, distracted, stressed out and modern living has perfected ways to make you feel that way. Retreating to serene places such as places of worship gives you absolute peace that could prepare you for another week ahead and keep your conscience and faith always in check. When I took this picture here at St. Benedict Church Cavite, I had no idea it would be just as beautiful as how I've seen it.

That's the bell tower, a separate outbuilding just outside the church. 

Places of worship, religion and the mass celebrations should only be tools of communication between you and your Creator and should not be the only basis of your spirituality. Incorporate Him in everything you do. Pray wherever and whenever you can especially in your moments of doubt and despair because I have been told that God hears better than a Hallelujah, as one song goes. But when you are in a stage of your life where, like me, you wake up thanking Him for all the blessings, joys and praising Him even with the challenges you have, never forget to check in to Him as much as you would check in your Facebook status. Faith is a personal journey and joyful people can only do so much good to people around them. 

Stay strong and happy! Comment up and share your journey!
