Theological Reflection is process of finding meaning in the experience given the wisdom of our Christian.
Theology practicum is one of the greatest events I really liked. For me, God is in the heart not just for me but also for the IT4B students, BMC girls, and Econ students and in our host families. Through our hearts, God let us see the beauty around us. It helps us to understand the circumstances of every people that surround us. During my theology practicum, I can see that both Ateneo students and Lumad people are very happy. For this two days practicum experience, I can say that we are both unique and equal. No person belonged to a higher, middle, and a low class. We shared the same food, talked different story that happened in our lives, showed our own talents, and many more.
Share and show what you've got. It is a message that I received from God. I can say this because it is the only thing I can give, for now. Through small things, I am sure that I can still help others. In my little ways, I know I can make other people smile. What I have, even though it is just little, I want to share it to other people. I don't want to pretend that I can give more, more than I can give to myself, because in the end I know that I will look boastful in others eyes.

In particular, I learned that through prayers, God answered their small wishes. For example, when they have no more food to eat, they just pray very hard and the next day they already brought food back to their homes. My and other faith enliven because God showed us that every time we seek his guidance and help, He always there to help us. He extend His hand in order to help us stand and fight all the problems and challenges we encountered. We must always remember that even though we tend to forget God's presence, God will never abandoned us and live our side.
Human dignity is the CST principle that has become a challenge for me to practice. According to CST principle, being in the image of God, the human individual possesses the dignity of a person, who is not just something, but someone. He is capable of self-knowledge, of self-possession and of freely giving himself and entering into communion with other persons. And he is called by grace to a covenant with his Creator, to offer him a response of faith and love that no other creature can give. For me, human dignity is a challenge because at first I judge the Lumad tribe to act in selfishly or no manner at all. I generalize them to the Lumad in the city who ask money and all, and if I don't give money, they will spit on me. So, in order for me to protect myself, didn't
