As many of you would have known, from 1 to 15 April, I journeyed with 39 other pilgrims (all together making up 40 people in the group) to the biblical lands of Greece and Turkey. Some might say that a two-week journey like this would be nothing more than a whirlwind tour, but because our trip was rather focused, it was actually very targeted and therefore quite relaxing. I did not return as exhausted as I did last year when going for the pilgrimage to Italy.
Sounds of the Filipino people singing have always stirred me and drawn me towards the language of the heart. I cannot remember when it was that I started discovering my love for the Filipino voice. They sing and they love what they sing, and often, they mean what they sing. I have always entertained a secret notion that God created this race of people to sing to the world.
