MANILA – Inspirational speaker Bo Sanchez shared some points for reflection for people celebrating the Holy Week.
In an episode of ANC's "Shop Talk," Sanchez said that more than all the traditional rites, the Lenten season is the perfect time to rediscover God's love.
"I believe that the essence of religion, the essence of Christianity is God's love. And Lent, Holy Week and Easter is the perfect time to focus on the love God," he said.
"A lot of people get so confused and get caught up that religion is all about these rules, regulations and rituals. All of these are important, but not as important as the love of God," he added.
He said that the Holy Week is also the perfect time to keep quiet and ask "How did God love me in my life? How did I experience God's love through my family and friends?"
Sanchez further said he believes God's love is the only "launching pad" for changing one's life.
He also reminded Christians that "when you're down to nothing, God is up to something."
