Easter Vigil 2012, Holy Trinity Parish, Balic-balic, Sampaloc, Manila

darkness reigned over the hills,

seeming endless days of injustice,

fueled explosions of

anger, fear, desperation, helplessness,

and yet,


a flicker of the One Light,

a sign of hope,

for this is the moment,

when the veil of darkness will be pierced,

by the promised fire,

the light the burns forever,

and the seeds of faith,

long buried in the darkness,

blessed by the candle’s divine fire

grows leaves of praise,

and the one light,

became two,

and the two,

became three,

the One and the Many,

the One and the Community of Light

in the sacred hills of balic-balic.
