My wish for you this Christmas and on this Feast of the Holy Family is depicted by the Sleeping Holy Family:
I wish that you can be
Secure in the love of Jesus, Mary and Joseph
Loving towards each other as family and friends
Embracing each other’s differences
Enjoying each other’s presence
Protective of each other.
I pray that as you look at the sleeping Holy Family, you will begin to see the value of contemplation as a way to rest and sleep, the way Jesus, Mary and Joseph sleep in each other’s divine embrace.
ONE in the Lord,
ONE in our mission and communion
ONE in our hope for the growth of each other
ONE in our Mission and Vision
ONE in our support and family/community unity
We are ONE with each other. This Christmas, is a time for atonement as we reconcile and accept each other, as we are with all our values, virtues, mistakes and mystique.
Indeed, we need to stand by each other. Strive to be simple. Less is more! I pray that we can ALLOW events to happen and still sleep through it all. In fact, ALLOW for us means
Leave it as it is
Laugh it out
Observe just observe, no judgment
Wait for what God wants us to do.
This is all for now…Let us prepare for the coming of Jesus in our hearts. May your Christmas be days of joy and family reunion.
With dear Mother Felicitas former Prioress general of OP MOLO in front of their 75th Jubilee mural. It’s a great blessing to come and share gifts. Sharing gifts is sharing Jesus.-Sr. Eppie Brasil, OP
Sister Eppie Brasil, OP. Sr. Matthew Brasil,OP. Sr Menchi Advincula, OP and Sr. Diday Sobremisana OP visited and shared gifts with the elderly sisters of OP Molo. It has been our custom and this is the 5th year of sharing.
Before we had sleeping St. Joseph pillow now we have The Holy Family sleeping pillow.
Imagine after travelling a long desert road and perhaps passing rocky hills….Mary was very tired and in pain and Joseph was taking care of Mary and the baby in her womb. Finally they find a place, a manger.
After the birth of Jesus and perhaps after the visit of the shepherds now they could rest in heavenly peace. Look at the care in the hands of Mary holding Jesus and look at the protective hands of Joseph lovingly protecting Mary and Jesus. May such great love flow in your families too.
At this time this pillow can only be found in the motherhouse Regina Rosarii Center of Contemplation in 70 Scout Fernandez St. Quezon City and Regina RICA in Barangay Sampaloc, Tanay, Rizal. I say AT THIS TIME because I am sure people will copy this pillow design.
If you like to see the 6 feet statue COME TO REGINA RICA in Tanay.

HE WILL COME: AN ADVENT RECOLLECTION
Every Advent reminds us that the clock is running. Advent stirs up our yearnings to harmonious relationships and for an environment of wholeness in which everything works right. We fragment our energy into different demands of life: family and career, personal and social life, justice and mercy, etc. we must wait for Jesus to come into integrate our frustrations and our hopes. We are building with the expectations that he will come. This Advent and Christmas, celebrate together that He who come, will come!

The Dominican Sisters of Regina Rosarii with lay members attend ACN convention in Manila. This is a memorable event since our Foundress Sr. Eppie Brasil, OP has known Fr. Werenfried van Straten, the founder of Aid to the Church in need. In some of our Projects ACN has helped us.
In this convention we were made aware through the stories of volunteers of ACN the reality in the persecution of Christian in many countries most especially the sufferings in Syria, in Aleppo and in many parts in the world including our very own country in the south especially in Basilan. We pray for the faith of our persecuted brethren and in our own little ways contribute for the cause of ACN.
