About BLD

We are the Bukas Loob sa Diyos (BLD) Catholic Charismatic Covenant Community. Founded in June 1985, BLD is a pioneering lay organization in the Philippine renewal movement. We have been organizing life-changing Encounter retreats for families, married couples, singles, solo parents and the youth; and a Christian life program, the Life in the Spirit Seminar.

As we are transformed in Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit, we too follow Christ’s mission in reaching out to the downtrodden and the marginalized in society.

Message from our Spiritual Director

“Go into all the world and proclaim the good news to the whole creation.”

Mark 16:15

Brothers and Sisters,

Welcome to the online presence of the Bukas-Loob sa Diyos Catholic Charismatic Community – District of Manila.

Community is born and grows by communication.  And communication deepens communion.  May this website promote communication within our District, with the global BLD Community, with the Church, and with the whole world.

The Lord calls us to be bukas-loob, to be generous, and to be open in Spirit, open-hearted.  He missions us to communicate the Word of God in our thoughts, words and deeds. New technology and social media have ushered in new ways for us within the Church and our Covenant Community to spread the Good News. The internet, in particular, has been both a challenge and a blessing to the work of evangelization.

The speed of communication and the ever-increasing bytes of online space have allowed the spread of false witness, deliberate misinformation, half-truths, deceitful propaganda.  On the other hand,  the same online speed and space are a blessing, because they also provide us an opportunity to speak for the truth, and charity, and justice when we allow the Holy Spirit to breathe and flow through the new media of the internet.

Called to spread the Good News to the ends of the earth, we should fully take advantage of new technology to respond to the call for “New Evangelization.”

I thank all who have worked on the construction of this websitefor helping BLD’s Evangelization efforts to a whole new level by the online connectivity that this website affords. May we spread Christ’s salvation like wildfire as we invoke the Spirit to guide us in this new phase of Evangelization and Mission work.

Yours truly in Christ,

VICTOR C. DE JESUS, S.J.
