Migrant Workers Ministry: Information, Experiences and Meditations on Filipino people in Diaspora

The spring of life will burst forth in the desert
Sojourners will find rest for their souls

We may not be able to find
what we are searching for in life
Yet we may find the means to reach basic ends
Such as food, water, shelter, education, health
But a meaningful life is a question of will
Asking yourself,
"Will I be able to live better with this?"
Migration is an answer to existential needs
It is not however a guarantee for meaningful life
The rest depends in one's faith and determination
to live the morally "good life"
The well spring of life flows freely for all those
Who would consciously drink from it
To be filled with its refreshing water
Which provides spiritual nourishment that will last
through eternity.
Today we are here in this place, tomorrow in our homes
May we be back to our homes finding well being
in who we are, in who we have become and
in persons whom we labored and struggled for
Tomorrow morning
many things will be brought to light
You must be ready to face the new day
and even then expect the slanting shadows behind
every person's life
