I’ve been working and living in the host country, Kuwait for quite several years now and I have gotten used to how the Christian holy season of Lent is being observed.
Today’s world is fast paced as if everything moves with one click of our finger, as if everything is almost instant. Computers, gadgets, cell phones, television, sound system, all these keep us busy.
Whether we like it or not, we have to seek someone’s approval in many things that we do. Family, work, friends, other relationships.
Have you ever felt unimportant in your life? It’s like nothing good is happening and that everything else is falling apart. Have you ever thought that God must have forgotten about you?
Holy Tuesday. Although we are working and staying in a predominantly Islam country, expatriates and Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) like us are still fortunate to have been given the freedom to practice our religion.
