I just learned that my high school friend, Ace Natividad (picture above), passed away at 6:25am (March 11, Manila time) due to pneumonia. This was barely a few hours after I posted my earlier request for prayers.
Requiem aeternam dona ei, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat ei. Requiescat in pace. Amen. (Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul rest in peace. Amen.)
Thank you very much for the prayers already offered. I have yet no news on Fr. Galdon, except that he is quite weak already and near death. Please continue to pray for him as well.
