DAY 4: Talk 2 - We’re In This Together DAY 4 Talk 2 |We’re In This Together Let me begin with a story. The year was 2001. I was a young father. Bene, my eldest, was still a one-year-old baby. I arrived home one night, frustrated and exhausted. I just came from working on my little business. But it didn’t seem to be working. I was frustrated because after telling people what a great product I had, no one bought. Not a single one. I looked at my baby, wondering how I was going to feed him. Yes, [...]

DAY 4: Talk 1 - The Resurrection DAY 4 Talk 1 | The Resurrection Fr. Reginald Malicdem, Rector of the Minor Basilica of the Immaculate Conception (Manila Metropolitan Cathedral): Easter greetings from the Manila Cathedral! This is the second Easter Sunday that we celebrate during the time of the COVID Pandemic. But we know in the midst of this Pandemic, even if the end of this crisis seems to be still far from sight, we still have to celebrate the Resurrection of the Lord… The story of Jesus did not end when He was buried in the tomb. [...]

Not Alone DAY 2 April 2, 2021 | Good Friday Welcome and Prayer Bo Sanchez: Come upon the presence of the Lord and reflect upon His gift to us… His life and His death. I want you to imagine that you are in a place where God is there… It can be a chapel, a retreat house of one of our events. Forget that you are at home wearing your pajamas. I want you to transport yourself there, imagine that you are there in that place where God speaks. Talk 1 | Scourging at the Pillar Bishop Honesto [...]
Not Holding Back DAY 1 April 1, 2021 | Holy Thursday Welcome and Prayer Bo Sanchez: Welcome to our Not Afraid Holy Week Retreat! This is your appointment with God for the next four days.

Side A/ Side B Severed Head and Hungry Crowd WELCOME to The Feast! Before we move on, let’s check our map. Where are we in our amazing “Matthew Expedition” which we started last December 2019. One of Matthew’s messages is that Jesus is the New Moses. That has zero emotional impact on us, but this was a radical claim for the Jews. To press on this point, Matthew did something ingenious: He divided the teachings of Jesus into five chunks to parallel the five teachings of Moses: Today, we’ll start a brand-new series which we’ll playfully call Side [...]
You Are Good! WELCOME to The Feast! I am so happy that you are here! Welcome not only to The Feast. Welcome to The Feast Family! I’d like to say a big Thank You to all those who own our mission. You know, The Feast is on a crusade. We want to share God’s Love to the entire world. We want to build Feasts. There are hundreds of Feasts in 26 countries right now and you’re part of that.

Story of the Mustard Seed and the Yeast WELCOME back to our amazing series on the wonderful Parables= of Jesus. Today, we’ll spotlight two of them—about the Seed and the Yeast. Both of them have one message: God likes small. He likes big too. He’s a big God. And He built a big universe. But our problem is we tend to over- like big. And we downplay small. Which is a big mistake. This is God’s powerful word for you. Let me begin with a story. In Cubao, Quezon City, there are a few department stores scattered in [...]
The Story of the Treasure and the Pearl WELCOME to our great “mining expedition” into the Gospel of Matthew. Today, I want to preach the simple message, “I found something more valuable.” Declare this powerful line. Truth: Every decision boils down to value. Why do you spend on a family trip instead of a designer bag? Because you value your relationships. Why do you walk around the village instead of binge-watch Netflix? Because you value your health. Whenever you can’t make a decision, it simply means you don’t know what is important to you. You haven’t found what [...]
