Generous Living, Generous Giving
“For it is in giving that we receive.” ―St. Francis of Assisi
Tagaytay City -- My favorite charitable institution is Tahanang Vedruna in Tagaytay City. The child care facility, operated by the Carmelites Sisters of Charity-Vedruna (CCV), facilitates a favorable situation for children who are orphaned, vulnerable, abandoned and neglected by providing basic needs of shelter and food, educational and other social resources and a better upbringing based on a “family-style” model.
Earlier today, I accompanied some friends for an outreach to the Tahanang Vedruna kids. The event started with an interactive and lively celebration of the Holy Mass presided by Rev. Fr. Joseph Raymund D. Biliran from the Diocese of Novaliches. The visitors and the Tahanang Vedruna children served during the Holy Mass. After the Mass, all present---visitors, kids, sisters and staff---had lunch boodle fight style. Nutritious food were piled on top of banana leaves laid out on long tables and was taken with bare hands. We all ate until we had our fill. Afterwards, Rico Montesines of Crescendo, Randy Abella of Big Heart and Sr. Rose Señorin, CCV of Tahanang Vedruna addressed the kids and the visitors with some words of encouragement and thanksgiving. The visitors brought loads of rice provisions, school supplies and foot wear. As gesture of thanks, the kids showcased their talents through dance performances.
I wouldn't have fulfilled this annual mission without generous donations from corporate sponsors and individuals donors: Big Heart, Team Crescendo, Rolly Galinato of Mary Immaculate Parish Divine Mercy Apostolate, Rev. Fr. Joseph Raymund D. Biliran and regular anonymous contributors. There's nothing more precious than putting smiles on the children's faces. May God shower upon you His choicest blessings far beyond anything you can ask or imagine!
