I would love to share to you a Sunday Homily a few months ago, July 24, 2011 in exact. This is quite a very late post , but it's worth-sharing.
According to the priest, there are 3 Things that make people SAD and these are:
1. SLAVERY to money, vices and grudges
2. SELF- CENTEREDNESS
but God is soo good that He gives us 3 Things to make us HAPPY, to counter the sadness.
1. FREEDOM to counter slavery. Freedom is the need to be oneself. Freedom of self-expression.
2. LOVE is the need to be WITH others. Inter-relationship is an expression of love.
3. RESPONSIBILITY is the need to be FOR others.
