  2. Many people believe peace is important in order to avoid unnecessary conflicts that might hinder progress or even result in the loss of life. There are many brothers and sisters devoted to fostering peace within the domestic and global spheres. Of course I think it for BALIKUMBAT SUBDIVISION For example, understanding others in order to enrich life within the global community, or the subdivision

    I heard the very sad news. It is going to be a pleasure for some, maybe a sad news for others. As a priest and a peacemaker, I analyze the situation in a different angle. without checking deeply, I will just pray for the whole subdivision. We need peace. Without peace, none of us will be happy, development is not possible. I call the good sens of my former Christians, people of good will and others to work for peace, and to avoid eventually every kind of conflict which will put down the progress.
