  4. 4. Yakal Tree<br /> Ka Tonyo cut an aged yakal in the backyard. <br /> He trimmed its branches and from day to day, piece by piece, little by little, he cut the timber. <br /> Little Bong watched his father work. At times, he imitated his father. He will get a piece of wood, pretending to shape several toys out of the blocks. <br />
  5. 5. One day, as he followed his father’s every move, he saw an emerging shape from his timber. His father cut some more until a prominent figure of a banca is evident.<br />
  6. 6. The little boy’s eyes grew big and amazed. He asked his father, “Tay, how did you know that there was a banca inside the yakal trunk?”<br /> Ka Tonyo gave his son a boisterous laugh!<br />

  27. 27. Living the Message of Faith<br />1. Sacraments are signs<br />Let us be signs towards goodness and signs pointing away from what is not good. As students, what is good is a good study habit. <br />What is not good is to take for granted your job to read books and do research. <br />
