Collegiate basketball’s legendary rivals came together for the launch of a book of reflections on 52 terms in the Christian faith last 28 January at the De La Salle University in Manila.
Ateneo de Manila University and De La Salle University temporarily put aside their athletic differences to celebrate the launch of Siya Nga! Reflections with Art, a new book penned by Fr. Jose Ramon “Jett” Villarin, S.J., president of Ateneo, edited by David Jonathan Bayot, and published by the De La Salle University Publishing House.
Each of the 300-word reflection aims to shed a light on the terms that both the author and the editor deemed significant in the life and living of those who share the Christian faith.
“What we wanted to do is to make these familiar words unfamiliar once again,” Fr. Jett Villarin said. “The book aims to look at these words in a different way, in a different manner so that we may show that the newness of God will never grow old, and the bigness of His love will never grow small.”
