In my life as a Religious Brother, I always carry in me this bible passage from the Book of Isaiah “Isaiah 6:8 8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
I consider this Rogationist Vocation, as a marvelous gift and love of God to me.
My Vocation Journey.
I was born in the small town of Bamban , Tarlac on October 9, 1973. I entered the Rogationist Seminary, Manila on May 16, 1990, and finished my philosophical studies at the same seminary. In the last week of May 1995, I together with my other 12 companions we went to Cebu for our Novitiate. The year after on June 1, 1996 I had my first Rogationist Religious Profession. In 1998 I did my practical training in Rogationist Seminary Cebu, as a Brother assistant of the Seminarians. In 1999, I was assigned at St. Antony’s Boys Village, Silang Cavite as an assistant to the young boys, and at the same time part of the school Administrators. I remained there till I had my Perpetual Profession. In the middle of 2004, I was assigned to our Center of Spirituality in Rome, Morlupo. In 2011, I was called back to the Philippines and was assigned to our School in Davao, the year after I was assigned as the Prefect of the boys. In 2017 I was assigned to our Missionary office in the Provincial House Manila. In the middle of 2018, I asked our Provincial Superior if I may join and experience life in Roga Mina Iloilo. In 2020 I was asked to go back to Manila in preparation for my new assignment. In the early part 2021, I was assigned in the General House, Rome till present. This is the story of my 25 years journey as a Rogationist Religious Brother.
May our Fr. Founder St.Hannibal and our Mother Mary, guide us always. Rogate, rogate, rogate. May God bless us all!
A million thanks and let us always pray for one another.
