O my God! 
Source of all mercy! 
I acknowledge Your sovereign power. 
While recalling the wasted years that are past, 
I believe that You, Lord, 
can in an instant turn this loss to gain. 
Miserable as I am, 
yet I firmly believe that You can do all things. 
Please restore to me the time lost, 
giving me Your grace,

Heavenly Father, I ask You in the name,
and through the Blood of Your Divine Son,
to rebuke Satan for taking captive 
that which belongs to You.

I ask Jesus to place His Crown of thorns around 
my family so that those with wrong influences 
will lose interest and depart.

Dear Jesus, help me to spread Your fragrance everywhere I go. 
Flood my soul with Your spirit and life. 
Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly 
that all my life may only be a radiance of Yours. 
Shine through me and be so in me 
that every soul I come in contact with may feel Your presence in my soul.

Help me with your peace to help others.
Help me to see the good in everything around me.
Help me to find and keep the peace 
that can be obtained from your love.
With Jesus, I know I will gain strength.
His life had trials and turmoil.
Help me to learn from his sufferings.
Thank you for sending Jesus

Before the world was begun, O Lord
You had me in your mind
You gave me a place in your world, O Lord
To be gracious, forgiving and kind.

I tried and I failed and despaired, O Lord
But you raised me again and again
So I trust in your grace and your love, O Lord
To shepherd me through to the end.

O gentle Heart of Jesus,
ever present in the Blessed Sacrament,
ever consumed with burning love
for the poor captive souls in Purgatory,
have mercy on them.

Be not severe in Your judgments,
but let some drops of Your Precious Blood
fall upon the devouring flames.

O God, you are my God, for you I long,
for you my soul is thirsting.
My body pines for you
like a dry, weary land without water.
So I gaze on you in the sanctuary
to see your strength and your glory.

Lord, I come to you for help.
Life is full of trials and turmoil.
Sometimes it gets the best of even the strongest of your people.
You, Lord, are the one to turn to.
I am in need of your guidance through this time.
Lord, show me the way to obtain strength 
to combat the trials of life.
I know your love is infinite.

Fr. Kurt and his father

I grew up with nothing but fear and distance from my father. It seems there was a mountain between us. I envied my friends who had great relationships with their fathers. But this changed. I grew up. One of the last few things we did was climb the highest peak in Iligan City.
