Is there alcoholism or some other addiction in your home? Has someone you love been victimized by the corruption and greed of others?
Circumstances like these leave you feeling like there's no way out and no one to understand you're hurts and confusion. But the fact is, God cares. He sent Jesus to show you His love and He sent His holy spirit to be wise counselor, your constant companion, and our source of comfort.
Because of the presence of the Holy Spirit, Jesus was able to reassure his followers that no matter what happened he would always be with them and see them through any difficulty-clear up to the end! He makes the same promise to you.
Here's what a habit of short nights will get you (less than6 hours).
- Difficulty waking up in the morning
- Inability to concentrate and impaired memory
- Falling asleep in class
- Moodiness, irritability, depression, or anxiety
Establishing a consistent sleep routine is one of the best ways to improve our mental, physical, and emotional health.
You probably already know what caffeine( a stimulant) can do to keep you from getting the rest you need, but what about the effects of nicotine and alcohol? Both of these substances prevent you from being able to fall into a deep sleep, the kind of sleep that fuels and repairs your body for the next day....

With all this violence , craziness, and uncertainty in the world today that's understandable. If we have been placed on this earth and left to work it all out on our own we would be in for some serious trouble!
But we're not here on our own. That's why Jesus came. He came to offer us hope , both in this world and the world to come.
The place he talks about there is heaven, which is being with God after we die here in earth. Our life in heaven with him will last forever- free from tears and anything that causes fear or pain. Now that's something to look forward to! That's great, but what about right now?What about tomorrow ?
Jesus said that only people who don't know God worry about their future. On the other hand, he promised that for those who get to know him, God himself would see to it that all their needs are met!
When we put our hope ion him, God promised to live with you today on earth and one day in heaven as well. All you need to do to get this kind of hope is to put your trust in him. You take the first step- God will do the rest. Want to know how? Study the bible......

In a short time, Rizal became famous. However, the publications of Noli M
Inspite of the warnings of his brother and close friends, Rizal left the EUROPE and returned to the Philippines. After staying in the country for a year, Rizal packed his personal belongings, and again left for Europe by way of NORTH AMERICA.
Rizal proved to be a success in EUROPE . In 1886,he followed his early literary success by publishing in Ghent, BELGIUM, EL Filibusterismo, a sequel to the Noli. He dedicated it to the martyrs of Bagumbayan: Fathers Burgos, Gomez and Zamora. The hero got as far as ENGLAND to gather important historical materials. It was there when he discovered the invaluable work of Don Antonio de Morga, an early SPANISH historian. Rizal rush to a printer shop in PARIS, and ordered the printing of the historical records there. In 1890, Morga's Sucesos de las islas FILIPINAS came out. In 1892, Rizal decided to return to the Philippines for the second time despite the fact that he had many influential and powerful enemies thjere. Rizal was accompanied by his sister Saturnina when he left for HONKONG to ask permission from Governor Eulogio Despujol for the peaceful resettlement of his family and relatives. What Rizal got was banishment to Dapitan in Mindanao where he live for four years. He made good use of his stay in the far-flung island by teaching young boys, improving the lot of the people through numerous projects, and continuing his medical practice. He also met and married Josephine Brachen, and Irish-Chinese in Dapitan.
Governor-General Blanco agreed, on July 1, 1896, to let him leave the country on a medical mission to Cuba. He was, however, arrested in SPAIN before he even got to Cuba, and was shortly transferred to another ship bound to MANILA where charges of sedition and treason were already prepared by his enemies.
In a mock trial, Rizal was soon found guilty of high crime; treason and rebellion. Governor-General Camilo Polavieja, who succeeded Governor-General Blanco, at once decreed the execution of Rizal on DEC. 30, 1896. The night before his death, the hero wrote ''Mi Ultimo Adios'' in his cell of fort Santiago. The poem remains to be one of the greatest poems of our time.
In Bagumbayan, DR. Jose P. Rizal shed his blood, his supreme sacrifice in testimony of the profoundness and dept of his love for his suffering country and people.

Guerrero's parents were Don Lorenzo Guerrero, a noted painter and Doña Clemencia Ramirez, a highly educated woman. He is known a chiefly as a poet, but his talent does not lie there alone. A musician, a journalist, a politician, a painter, Fernando Ma. Guerrero above all was a patriot. His poetry in Spanish sang glorious deeds of our heroes and the fine beauty of our ladies.
Guerrero was blessed with a good education. He was given good books on many subjects such as music and art. The Ateneo de Manila gave him a Bachelor of Arts Degree; the University of Santo Tomas his law degree.
Guerrero was at heart a poet, not a lawyer. His days were filled with poetry, writing, painting, piano and flute playing.
He fought for Filipino cause with his pen during the Revolution. His writing published in the newpapers inspired the people to seek liberty. Together with General Antonio Luna, Guerrero edited La Independecia (Indepence), the organ of the Revolution. Two of his poems, "Mi Patricia" (My Country) and "Gladiator" were printed in La Independecia. He used the pen names Fulvis Gil and Gil and Gil Rosas.
Guerrero was editor of two newspapers, El Renacimiento (Rebirth) and La Opinion (The Opinion). After the Revolution, Spain honored him by making him member of the Real Acadamia de Lengua Español (Royal Academy of the Spanish Language) of Madrid. He tried writing English poems. Some of them were "Come to Me", "Forevermore", "Where Is May?" and "Far for Thee".
His important poems were collected in 1914 in a volume, Crisalidas. The poems which expresses best Guerrero's ardent love for the Philppines are "La Bandera", "El Dolor de las Cuartillas Virgenes", and "Mi Patria". His "Marcha Funebra de Chopin" and "Maria Clara" were given excellent sound, color and image.
Wanting to serve his countrymen, he ran for public office and became councilor of Manila, General Secretary of the Philippines Independence Commision, Secretary of the Philippine Assembly in 1907. After a glorious stint in government service he died on June 12, 1929 in his ancestral home in Ermita, Manila-a fulfilled man.

Panganiban used his pen to fight for the rights of our people. He wrote well and bravely, too. When he was in Spain, he wrote against spaniards who talked ill of Filipinos.
Panganiban was a very bright student. He studied first in a seminary in Naga. Then he went to manila and studied at the Colegio de San Juan de Letran. Later, he went to the University of Sto. Tomas to become a doctor. During his studies, he had very high grades. He also won prizes in writing and science contests.
Panganiban went to spain to continue his studies in Medicine. There he met Rizal,Marcelo H. del Pilar. and Lopez-Jaena. Like them. he wrote about the injustices committed by the Spanish rulers in our country. He became a contributor to the La Solidaridad.
He read and wrote without much rest. He studies till very late at night. He studied other languages too. So he was able to speak Chinese, English, German and Latin. Soon he fell very ill.
''You should rest, Jose", his Filipino friends advised him. "I cannot rest until I have written down my thoughts. I want to tell the whole world about our country, I want everyone to know how our people are suffering", he answered.
And so, he went on writing till he died in Madrid at the young age 25 on August 19 1890, far from the country he loved.
He was a dedicated writer. He wrote EL Gobierno entre Dos Tendencias, Anatomia de Regimen, EL Pensamiento and La Universidad de Manila y su Plan de Estudio. He also contibuted some poems, among which were Noche de Mambulao, Bahia de Mambulao, A Nuestra Obrero, Ang Tinubuan , and Sa Aking Buhay! His stories were Clarita Perez and Kading.
As a writer,Panganiban believed in the necessity of reform for the Philippines, including academic freedom, freedom of the press and humane treatment of the Filipinos. Although not trained as an educator, he toyed with the ideas of founding an ideal university in Manila.
Jose P. Rizal paid Jose Panganiban the highest tribute when the former said, that what Panganiban grieved most was he died without accomplishing the highest mission he had hoped for and was able to dedicate his energies and interest to the noble cause of fighting for freedom for the Filipino people.

Apostol was born in 1877. He got his formal education at the Ateneo de Manila and at the University of Sto. Tomas. He finally qualified himself as a lawyer but hardly practised his law profession. Instead, he worked for the government. He became a member of the Academia Filipina in 1924,and died in Caloocan in 1938.
Apostol's love for poetry was shown as early as 1895 when ''El Terror de los Mares IOndices'', appeared in El Comercio. Later, wrote for La Independencia, General Antonio Luna's revolutionary newspaper. For about twenty years, he wrote poetry, principally addressed to Filipino heroes and international celebrities, to celebrate important events.In some instances, Apostol would burst into song to celebrate Philippine scenes complied in 1950 contains some thirty-nine nationalistic poems.
Apostol likes to be alone most of the time. In a quite corner, he would carve out statues of heroes and reliefs of historic scenes. As an artist, Apostol favored the classics. In his poem in honor of Rizal, entitle, Al Heroe Nacional,Ap[ostol poured out his heart strongly. This poem is recognized today as the finest ever written in honor of the national hero.

Marcelo H. del Pilar could have made a name for himself as a lawyer had he stuck to is law career. Instead, he abandoned it for something he loved more- writing. He didn't had any cause for regret despite the many sacrifices he has to undergo. It has its rewards after all. He rose to become a greatest propaganda writer of his time.
Del Pilar was born on August 30, 1850 in Kupang, Bulacan, Bulacan, to a middle class family. He studied first in his hometown and later at the Collegio de San Jose and then the University of Sto. Tomas. At the age of 30, he qualified as a lawyer. He happened to marry his cousin, Marciana, by whom he bore four sons and two daugthers.
The hero has always been fond in writing and reading European and classic even as a young man. He decided to write instead of building a career in law. As a writer, Del Pilar became famous not only because of his beautiful style but because of his prospective views as well. He criticized the Spanish authorities for the backward condition of his country and people. He wrote under the pen name of Dolores Manapat, Piping Dilat, L. O. Crame, Carmelo, and Plaridel.
He practiced law in Bulacan where he defended the poor and the weak from the cruelty of the Spaniards. Because of these, the Spanish official waned him in prison.
On October 22, 1889, he left hurriedly for Spain. Once in Barcelona, he quickly joined a group of Filipinos who were them publishing La Solidaridad under the direction of Graciano Lopez-Jaena. Fortunately, he was able to own the paper on November 15, 1889 or nine months after its maiden appearance. From then on, La Solidaridad came out regularly.
La Solidaridad became the news paper of the propagandist, who, for reason of security, had to use pen names. Jose Rizal wrote as Laong-Laan and Dimasalang; Mariano Ponce as Narning, Tikbalng, and Kalipulado; Antonio Luna as Tagalog; Jose Maria Panganiban as Jomapa; Dominador Franco as Ramiro Franco; and Clemente J. Zulueta as Juan Tatto; Del Pilar freckquently signed Plaridel or else Kupang.
In the hands of Del Pilar, La Solidaridad not only served as a revolutionary paper but also as a means for education and reform. The paper which came out once every two weeks fought for the following;
1. Reforms in the government and in the judiciary;
2. Representation in the Spanish Cortes;
3. Removal of the friars in the Philippines;
4. Secularization of Parishes;
5. Freedom of speech, pres association, and meetings; and
6. Greater individual and social freedom.
For six years, Del Pilar devoted his time and energy to the publication of La Solidaridad. Financial stress and hunger failed to stop him. Since the publication lacked money and men, the editor had to do most of the writing, copy reading, and asking for contributions himself. It was his first and last love. Del Pilar was able to write about one hundred fifty essays and sixty-s-six editorials. His outstanding essays were: La Soberia Monacal en Filipinas, (1888); El Dios Omnipotente, Essays on Rules of English Syntax, Outlines on International Code, and Cuestiones de Sermo.
His well-known editorials were: LaFilipinas Se Pierden, Asimilacion de Filipinas, Regimen Parliamentaria para Filipinas La Redencion de Filipinas and Autocracia Brutal.
The Spanish periodical, La Politica de Espana, paid tribute to Marcelo H. del Pilar when it wrote that he, as propagandist was doubtless the greatest produced by the Filipino people.
The hero died alone and poor in Barcelona on July 4, 1898. Oftentimes, he would sit in the park shivering in the cold without a single peseta to pay for his meals. He also felt the pangs of homesickness. It is said that his dying words to his countrymen were: "Go ahead with the work. Seek the liberty and happiness of our beloved Philippines".

Father Pedro Pelaez was better-off than the most of the Filipino priest in his time. Through industry, intelligence, and above all leadership. Father Pelaez rose rapidly to a high position in the Church hierarchy. He was Vicar-General of Manila, a magistrate and treasurer of La Sagrada Cathedral, and finally, acting Archbishop and Ecclesiastical Governor of Manila.
Although he had such good fortune, Pelaez found little peace of mind. He was deeply concerned about the poor lot of his own people, and the lack of opportunity for highly qualified Filipino priest. He then became the voice of the Filipino clergy in its crusade for fairness, equality, and truth.
A native of Manila, Father Pelaez was an offspring of Spanish father and a Tagalog mother. He earned a doctorate degree in canon law and theology.
The books that he wrote were: Documentos Sobre los Curatos de Filipinas, Exposicion al Sr. Gobernador Vice Patron Real de Filipinas con Defensas a los Derecho Preperados de Curo Secular (1862), and Collection de Cuestiones Canonicas v Teologicas. The first is nationalistic, presenting evidence against malpracticing Spanish priest. The second is an essay addressed to the governor presenting the rights of Filipino priest. The last is a compilation of church laws and questions.
In addition, Pelaez joined the movement giving Filipino priest a chance to run their own parishes by writing articles in La Verdad, a magazine published in Madrid. He also wrote for La Regeneracion, and founded and edited El Catolico Filipino in Manila. This local publications, apart from their religious content, became for many years the vehicle of nationalistic ideas
Father Pelaez's articles, although well-written and backed with enough evidence failed to induce the Church officials to mend their ways. All he got was respect for his literary ability and a high church position in the La Sagrada Catedral in Intramuros, Manila. Pelaez' nationalistic writings stopped only when he became a victim of Manila's destructive earthquake in 1863. He was inside the Manila Cathedral when the earthquake reduced it to rubbles.
Nine years later, Father Jose A. Burgos, another literary talent nationalist of the same caliber, met his death in the hands of the Spaniards.
