"Deus Sitit Sitiri"

Have you ever felt this way?
You were fed… 
given drink… 

and yet there’s this insatiable hunger inside you… 
an unquenchable thirst within you…
that beckons you
 and asks you for
for something more….

"God thirsts to be thirsted for..." - St. Augustine


lyrics/music by Fr. Manoling V. Francisco, SJ
performed by Ms. Lea Salonga


  1. You might be missing someone to truly share it all with...Some people love us and we them but they do not fulfill every part of us. If not a person then some part of your life is missing something. You might enjoy the job but is it truly fulfilling??? Listen to your mind and heart

  2. it happens Meli, you have everything you want, yet sometimes somethings go missing, very difficult to figure out............ time is the best healer when such things happen. the song was the best part of the post. it was mesmerizing.

  3. May we never lose our thirst for God. May we always turn to Him to fill the deserts of our hearts and turn them into gardens watered by his eternal love and flowing river of peace and healing. Loved the video.

  4. Melissa, this message is straight from the heart of God. "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled."
    ~ Matthew 5:6
    Happy Easter!

  5. Hi Melissa, I believe that God is the only one who can quench our thirst. Happy Easter!

  6. This is beautiful Melissa. The thirst for god should never be quenched.
