FOR A MERRY HEART: BELIEVE

"To believe is to see what eyes cannot see."

 

"People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars, and they pass themselves by without wondering." - St. Augustine

 

I grew up believing that everything has a corresponding explanation, that questions will always be answered, that science provides the tool in man's search of answers and meaning. But only to find out that explanations, despite its claim for objectivity, will always fall short and that answers are never exhaustive and exact.

 

Who made the stars or what are the stars made of? Why is there a sun and a moon? Why does moon appear in the evening and the sun in the morning? Can they interchange? In my Science class then, I have memorized all the numbers of the solar system with emphasis on the nine planets, with Pluto as the 9th. Yet recent discoveries resulted to downgrade Pluto out of the list of planets. I am wondering if how many planets are there in our solar system. When will science stop guessing?

 

Science is limited. It can only account for what our senses can perceive in some form using scientific processes, formula, and instruments. Science can never explain everything.

 

I would like to invite everyone to take a leap out of science and the objectivity of the world. Let us see using our hearts and speak with our humblest deeds, Jesus is waiting. He is real. He is with us on all that exist around us. He is the vastness and the deep that no science can ever tell.

 

For a merry heart, believe.

Vision Mission

ST. ANTHONY SCHOOL is a Catholic parochial institution established in 1936.

Inspired by the virtues of St. Anthony of Padua (charity, simplicity, humility, respect for creation) and a firm commitment to excellence, WE, the members of the Anthonian family, envision to become dynamic partners in evangelizing mission of the parish through the holistic and integral formation of responsible citizens and catalyst of change.

Guided by this vision, we shall become a resource and center of excellence in basic education in the Manila Archdiocesan and Parochial Schools Association.

We shall mold formed–in–Christ, academically competent, and socially responsible Anthonians by offering relevant, learner-centered educational programs rooted in Catholic faith, and values in a nurturing and conducive learning environment; and by building a collaborative culture characterized by stakeholder participation, openness and mutual respect.
