Michael Angelo Lobrin
Laugh with God Today! is a collection of funny short stories and reflections on and for the Catholic faithful in the Philippines. There are a total of 21 chapters (or stories, if you like) in the book. Each chapter runs for about 2 to 4 pages so they’re really quick reads. These are split up into three sections grouped by their intended point for reflection: faith, generosity and God’s love. With this type of format, there’s bound to be sequels. And that’s good news because Bro. Michael is truly a talented preacher.
Bro. Michael’s book has received several commendations from the religious (Bishop Bacani and Fr. Orbos) and laity (Boy Abunda and Bo Sanchez) folks alike. Their encouraging messages are included in the book and though at first I felt they ate too much space, I later determined that they only add more fun and meaning to it.
“Laugh with God Today” is written in a “Taglish” format, meaning the language shifts from colloquial Tagalog-speak to your regular conversational English. True to its title, the book is filled with hilarious anecdotes on Filipino religious belief. Each chapter is accompanied by a comic illustration (by Pio Mallari) like the one below.Laugh with God Today!
