Witnessing the Growth of Basic Ecclesial Communities All over the Country
This has been one of the busiest months for me. I spend more time visiting dioceses than in the office. I like this work very much. It gives me the chance to see how BECs continue to flourish all over the country, not just in the rural areas of Mindanao but in the urban areas like Metro-Manila and in traditional areas on Northern Luzon and the Bicol Region. There's so much diversity in terms of approaches, shapes and levels of growth. I will be preparing my report to the bishops who will be gathering here in Manila during the first week of July.
Meanwhile, my training for the marathon has been put on hold due to my busy schedule. I've also been having problems with both my knees - some swelling and pain. I have to use my mountain bike more often. Perhaps, I can bike around Laguna Lake after the CBCP assembly.
