The emergence of the social media has indeed changed the means of the global communications. It has unimaginable value for a positive use for the society, but also, could be a source of destruction when not used for the good of common good. When I started to use the social media, especially “Facebook” in my first post in the fall of 2014, I could recall that I said, “That I have opened my Facebook, and my prayer is that this medium of communication will lead to the knowledge of God by the humanity.” Assuredly, I can affirm that up and until today my posts on Facebook or Twitter have about ninety-five percent (95%) of the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, reflections, meditations, and writings on different celebrations in the Church, such as the Solemnities, Feasts, Memorials, Optional Memorials, of the Most Holy Trinity, our Lord Jesus Christ, Our Blessed Mother, Virgin Mary, The Saints, and Liturgical and Church events. As the result of this resolve, I have received many enriching and inspiring comments on the positive influence of my postings on the lives of many followers of my postings. Hence, many have asked me if it could be possible for me to compile these faith-based posts into a book so that people could have it at their fingertips, since it could be hard to go back to Facebook to search for them. The answer to these numerous requests is the reason why you are having this book in your hand. May God bless you as you read this book; May Our Lord Jesus guide your thoughts on them; May the Holy Spirit inspire your insights and Our Blessed Mother always be there for you with her motherly love, Amen!
