Our cover features some Columban priests on their way back to the main square after viewing St Kevin’s Bed, a cave he used as a hermitage in Glendalough, County Wicklow, Ireland. 36 Columban priests recently made a pilgrimage from St Columban's in Dalgan Park, Ireland, to Bobbio in Northen Italy where the body of their patron, Saint Columbanus, is buried. We can only think of how they felt as they relived the steps of their patron.

Deny yourself and take up your cross each day, and follow me. -- Luke 9:23b
Our cover features the Tinago Falls in Iligan City. It shows a man standing by the falls staring at the flowing water. The falls are comparable to God’s bountiful blessings flowing endlessly. The text from Revelations 21 verse 6, ‘To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life,’ tells of God’s reassuring love. It only takes humility for us to approach Him and drink from His spring.
Our cover features Fr Michael Sinnott with the children of Holy Family Home, Bacolod City. The joy in their faces is so visible. These kids are a few of the many people who really prayed for Fr Mick while he was in captivity and were rejoicing on the news of his release. Fr Mick came here to Bacolod City upon the invitation of our editor to meet these kids.

The soldiers twisted some thorns into a crown and put it on his head,
and dressed him in a purple robe.
~ John 19:2 ~
Our cover shows the Baby Jesus being held in two hands with heart-shaped lights in the background. It also includes a message from Luke 2:10, ‘I bring you news of great joy, a joy to be shared by the whole people.’
Our cover shows the Negros Nine Logo bearing the map of Negros with the initials ‘KK’ which stand for Kristianong Katilingban, the cross signifying Catholicism. Behind is the photo of the Negros Nine members taken sometime in 1983 when they were in prison during Martial Law.
Our cover is a dark wooden cross with the sky as background – with which we associate heaven. Light emerges from the darkness behind the cross.
