Give Hope, Give Life

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ (2 Cor 1.2).

Magne's World is based in Apalit, Pampanga in the island of Luzon, biggest in the Philippine archipelago, and started in 2004, courtesy of Geocities (service ended 2009) of Yahoo!. The website is uncategorized and not limited to any subject matter, though a great part revolves around the Catacutan and Anicete (et al.) clans here, and abroad. The following may help in navigating this page.

You might have noticed the word Hope; hope is the theological virtue by which we desire the kingdom of heaven and eternal life as our happiness, placing our trust in Christ's promises and relying not on our own strength, but on the help of the grace of the Holy Spirit (CCC 1817). Hope is what this troubled world needs; give hope, give life.

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so men persecuted the prophets who were before you” (Mt 5.3-12).
