Why remember history or past events, personal or historical? The reason is so we may not repeat past mistakes and also learn from them important lessons. That’s the importance of history to help us avoid past mistakes. Besides, remembering history also helps us thank God for His provident help and action in our lives. What we are now is because of God’s care and love for each and everyone of us in the various stages and happenings of our life history. Such is the song that should emanate from our lips, a thank you to the Lord of history who has accompanied our lives ever since.
Let us remember the words of St. Paul in the Bible, Rom. 8:28: “We know that by turning everything to their good God cooperates with all those who love Him, with all those that He has called according to His purpose.”
