This day in history from:

Prayer for Generosity

First, some apologies are in order:

1. Sorry for the stray notes, I was in a hurry and I wanted to get this out. Of course, there's performance anxiety also.

2. Sorry for the cheap equipment I used to record this. I just used an iSight webcam, and Photobooth with some editing from iMovie.

3. Sorry for the bad audio. I just used my computer's built-in microphone. And I was quite near it when I was recording. Just lower the volume while playing.

4. Sorry, all you can see is my belly, with some glimpses of my chin and the flute. People who know me personally know why that is so. But I can assure you, I played this one live.

5. Finally, sorry Fr. Arnel Aquino, S.J. for messing up your recording by my lay-over track.

6. As a catchall, sorry for those I have offended in making this recording.

Now for a background:

Even with my blog blackout, I wanted to do something special for this year's Feast of St. Ignatius. Well, there's a lot to be grateful for. For one, it's my school's sesquicentennial. Second, it's my son's first year in the Ateneo and he seems to be having the time of his life.

This is the first piece I have learned on the piano and on the flute. It is but fitting that I record this piece first.

I started practicing using my YFL-221, but I ended up using my main flute for this, my Yamaha YFL-471. There was a big difference between the two flutes.

The song is "Panalangin ng Pagiging Bukas Palad" by Fr. Manoling Francisco, S.J. and Jandi Arboleda I will post the lyrics here but it's the Filipino translation of St. Ignatius of Loyola's Prayer for Generosity.

So here goes:

Panalangin ng Pagiging Bukas Palad
(Fransico, S.J. and Arboleda, Ofracio, translated lyrics from Prayer for Generosity)

Panginoon, turuan Mo ako maging bukas-palad
Turuan Mo akong maglingkod sa Iyo
Na magbigay nang ayon sa nararapat
Na walang hinihintay mula sa 'Yo

Nang makibakang di inaalintana
Mga hirap na dinaranas
Sa tuwina'y magsumikap na hindi humahanap
Ng kapalit na kaginhawaan
Na 'di naghihintay kundi ang aking mabatid
Na ang loob Mo'y siyang sinusundan

Panginoon, turuan Mo ako maging bukas-palad
Turun Mo akong maglingkod sa Iyo
Na magbigay nang ayon sa nararapat
Na walang hinihintay mula sa 'Yo

Side Prayers

Lord Jesus,
Teach me to be generous,
Teach me to serve You as You deserve
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labor and not to ask for reward,
except that of knowing
That I do Your Holy Will. Amen

May every word I speak be from Your Truth...
I ask come from Your Wisdom...
May every case I handle receive Your Guidance...
May every heart, every life I touch, feel Your Love.

And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying,
"Oh, that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that Your Hand be with me,
that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain."

So God granted him what he requested.

Side Oath

and will conduct myself as a lawyer

So help me God.
